I get inspired for DIY's at the most random, and unnoticed things. But at the Marc by Marc Jacobs SS08 show, it just screamed ARTS AND CRAFTS TIME!
I loved this collection: the military/factory wear, preppy work shoes, pops of bright color, and of course the LEGO'S! Some people loved the Lego's, some hated it, but I thought it was genius and a recipe for an easy DIY.
Here's how I made my own Lego pins and barrettes (I have yet to make a belt buckle):
1. I bought a tub of Lego's and went crazy, making different patterns and shapes with the different Lego's (I got the smallest size)
2. After you have your formations, cut out card stock in the basic shape and glue (I used E6000) unto the back
3. Then glue your pin or barrette to the back, like so
...and voila! you have a Marc Jacobs knock off, months before the real version even gets to stores (plus you saved yourself quite a bit of money lol)
as a pin (Gwen Stefani/Jamaican inspired) and a barrette (bad hair day lol)
you can also put the pin of the strap of a tank!
Happy Crafting :)
