DIY Globe Guest Book

DIY Globe Guest Book

Here is easy and creative DIY coming at ya! I have a bunch of friends getting married this year and it brings me back to all my favorite projects I did for my wedding. Instead of having a traditional guest book, I scoured Pinterest like everyone else does. I came across an amazing idea. What I came up with was a great decorative piece I could see my husband and I cherishing in our home for years to come.

DIY Globe Guest Book

What you will need:

  • globe – I snagged mine at a second hand store for $2
  • spray paint – any color that accents your wedding colors
  • screw driver

I detached the globe itself by unscrewing it from the bottom of the base (there is a screw in the bottom of mine to hold it together). Spray base evenly with spray paint in a well ventilated area (I did it outside) and allow to dry. Reattach globe and your finished. We used black sharpies for signing, but you could use any color you want.

If you can’t take your globe apart, make sure to cover it well with a trash bag or some type of plastic covering to protect it while spray painting the stand.

Having a globe as a guest book was a great interactive piece that got all our guests talking. We have some many friends and family from all over the world that were there to celebrate our special day. It was fun for them to sign where they were from. Don’t let not having a wedding stop you from using this great idea. If you have an anniversary party, birthday or graduation coming up you could totally incorporate this as the guestbook. You will cherish it for years to come.

Happy fashion Friday!!

It’s getting warmer outside! That means more skirts and shorts are coming out to play. This maroon mini is super comfortable and can be easily dressed up or down. This outfit has that athleisure feel to it and was perfect for walking around in the city. Sporty chic all the way. How are you styling your favorite mini skirts as the temperate heats up?

p.s.  I also found this beautiful blue door I couldn’t pass without stopping to admire it.

DIY choker necklace

For all you festival lovers out there, here is an easy DIY chocker necklace to up your jewelry game. It is a simply statement piece that you can layer or wear alone. If you are wondering if you can rock this trend yourself, this a great way to ease into it. Plus it is super cheap to recreate yourself. Everyone’s measurements are a little different and this way you can make it the perfect length for you!

DIY choker materials you will need:

  1. Measure out how long you want your necklace to be and cut your cording. I made mine 56 inches long so that I could wrap it more than once around my neck.
  2. String through your statement beads on either end of your cording. Pull enough cording through each end to give yourself some room for the crimp covers.
  3. Add crimp covers to the ends and clamp with wire clamps. This will hold your statement beads into place.

You are all finished! Try it on!

Here is an up close picture of how my chocker turned out. I drew some inspiration from Free People when making this necklace. I can’t wait to make more with the other colors of cording I have. Where will you wear your choker? Stay tuned for how I style mine!
