DIY of the day (how to make an eco friendly necklace?) / Napravi sam projekt dana (kako napraviti ekološku ogrlicu?)




Well, obviously the best way to make an eco friendly necklace is to use either organic or recycled materials. I made this necklace  using the latter, that is,  extra fabric from one red denim skirt, little bit of cardboard, a bit of fabric old pillowcase and red acrylic paint

The base of the necklace is made from red denim, I just tied them together. The necklace  has one big heart attached to it. The heart you see is made from cardboard and it is covered first with white fabric from an old pillow case (sewn over it, not glued to it). Finally, I decorated the heart with acrylic paints. 

That's it! About 15 minutes of work and you end up with a really unique necklace. Will you try it?

Očito je najbolji način za napraviti ekološki prihvatljivu ogrlicu koristiti ili organske ili reciklirane materijale. Napravila sam ovu ogrlicu koristeći posljednje tj. malo tkanine koja mi je ostala od jedne crvene suknje od jeansa, malo kartona, malo tkanine s stare jastučnice i crvenu akrilnu boju.

Baza ogrlice je napravljena od crvenog jeansa, jednostavno sam povezala trakice zajedno. Ogrlica ima jedno veliko srce koje možete vidjeti na slikama, a napravljeno je od kartona koje je prekriven prvo tkaninom s stare jastučnice (ušivenom ne zaljepljenom). Na kraju sam ukrasila srce crvenom akrilnom bojom. 

To bi bilo to. Petnaestak minuta posla i dobijete posve jedinstveno ogrlicu. Hoćete li pokušati?

  7. Dear Ivana, if I would have as impressing skils in DIY than you than I would try it for sure! Love the result - not only because your DIY necklace is red, which means in the favourite colour of both of us :) Hopefully you have now better weather ... here in Bavaria it is sunny but honestly more chilly than warm as in the mountains we have still (and again) snow. Happy weekend!

  8. This is a great way to use extra scraps of fabric. I'm going to have to look in my closet to see if I have anything to use to try to make one.

  11. It would be nice to see it on you, hopefully soon! This is a nice way to express one's creativity and to give a second life to those materials. I too like eco-friendly pieces, there are a few necklaces and earrings made of recycled paper in my collection as well as of bamboo.

  19. That's a great idea and I love how it looks! I tend to make raggedy flower brooches out of fabric scraps and have a bracelet I've been intending to make for some time now with a particular fabric scrap. xo

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

HOW TO STYLE A METALLIC DRESS FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels. 
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look.  If you don't feel comfortable en…

READING UPDATE: PLAYER PIANO AND FAULT IN OUR STARS (BOOK REVIEWS)

Is anything as lovely as a sunny spring day? I missed reading outdoors, I can tell you that. Sitting on a bench on a nice spring day, with a nice book in one's lap, now that has to be one of the greatest pleasures in life. Speaking of reading, March has been a good reading month so far. As loyal I am to my favourite writers, I also love to discover new ones. I try to read at least one new author every month. This March I read two American authors for the first time: Kurt Vonnegut and John Green. Naturally I heard about them before. Both of them are quite well know, but this March marked my first introduction to these two. They are not the only 'new' writers I tried this month, but more about that some other time. Earlier this month, I read Kurt's Player Piano and Green's Fault in Our Stars. I liked Player Piano much more that Fault in Our Stars but I was kind of expecting that. I'm happy I read both, though. It is just that Kurt's writing is more my cup of…

HOW TO STYLE A BATH ROBE COAT FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.

What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces.  If you'r…
