Little bit of DIY

Yeah, yeah, I´m still alive. And everything is starting to get better, so I hope, I will come back to blogging soon.
But I decided to get together a post for today. Some of my DIY accessories.
Not everything came out like I planned, but nevermind, I like it anyway. :)
Before I start with the post itself...40 followers? Wow, thank you all so much, I really appreciate it. ♥♥♥

Firstly something I wore yesterday for the first time. A bow hairclip with cameo.
It´s glued to the clip, but I didn´t take the right glue, so it started to come of, that´s why I "sewed" the bow to the clip until I buy the right glue.

Then there is a studed headband I was working on for a longer time. It was ready a day before or small gothic picnik.
The headband was grey, and I didn´d wanted to buy some paint, so I used the older black nailpolish and when ready I fixed it with transparent nailpolish, so it doesn´t pull my hair anymore :D

Pendants I "made" from a brooch. I bought one with chains and keys and a heart at the end not so long ago, but just because I wanted to keys. I don´t really wear brooches, so I just took it apart. Now I have two lovely pendants and some parts are still left (maybe for some earrings? :D).

And again a key necklace. This is way bigger and it really is a key...from handcuffs :D

I made a pair of lace gloves from the sleeves of a blouse I bought for some cents in thrift store. It wasn´t good but I liked the idea of gloves.
They may not be perfect, but I don´t mind.
And I still have some other parts that I may use later.

And  a handbag I made from a cosmetic bag. I needed some bag in work, so I don´t have to take all the papers, cleaning rag, calculator, pens, scissors and other stuff in hands. And why not be little bit stylish?

This is how it looked before.

That´s all for now. I can´t say when the next post will be, but hopefully soon. :)


  1. I have an identical key on a beaded necklace I made. Eveyone asks what the key is for. I just smile.

    1. It looks nice, doesn´t it..When I saw it I knew, that it would make a great necklace. :)

  2. Great job on all the DIY! I admire your creativity.

  3. The gloves looks great actually! I used to make necklesses out of keys that came with handcuffs when I was younger, it's always fun :)
