DIY Elina Linardaki Inspired Sandals

 

I have been wanting a pair of the Leather Dizzy Parrot sandals by Elina Linardaki for quite some time now, so I decided to make my very own pair.  It has been forever since I’ve last done a ‘Mel Made‘, and with my blog’s 6th anniversary just around the corner, I thought it would be perfect!

Making my very own Elina Linardaki Sandals made me realize how much I love making things. When I first started my blog, it was mainly focused on DIYs, and making these sandals truly reminded me how much I missed it.

I plan to do more fun DIYs, so be sure to follow along to see what I make next.

It’s that time of the year again, and I know I have been talking about getting back into doing more DIYs.

The time has finally come! I decided to do another DIY Christmas ornament simply because the first ornaments I made were a hit. To this very day my last DIY (from 2010) Christmas Ornament (click here for post) has gotten so much love.

Any who, let’s get started.

I decided to make faux feather pom pom christmas ornaments.

Here’s what I used:

How I made it:

I used the glue gun and dabbed a small amount onto the ornament, and began gluing the boa around. I decided to use smaller ornaments (last minute decision) because they looked much better on a smaller ornament than on the bigger ones.

It was such an easy and fun DIY. Hope you all enjoy it!

Happy Holidays!

DIY Embellished Collar

Mel Made, DIY, embellished collar, sparkly collar, how to, melrodstyle, inspiration, new years eve, nye, style inspiration

Believe it or not, I whipped up this DIY embellished collar this morning. It was super easy, and if you’re like me and don’t have a clue of what you’re wearing for New Year’s Eve, then this might be an option.

Here’s how I made it:

  1. I cut this collar off an old blouse with fabric scissors.
  2. Rhinestones from Michaels (or any craft store).
  3. Hot glue.
  4. And voila!

Pretty easy, huh?!

Hope you liked this DIY. For more DIYs (mel made) check them all out here. The party crown DIY is one of my favorites. Great party hat for birthdays or to ring in the new Year. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post as I reflect on 2014.

The weather has been really nice lately so I decided to bring out an old pair of jeans I DIY’d (just added a few rips here and there) and paired them with this pretty printed blouse. Oh and did I mention this vintage Via Spiga bag was given to me by my momma…? I love a good hand-me-down!

Mel Made Skirt | MelRodStyle

Mel Made Skirt

 

As I mentioned in last week’s mel made post, I split this dress in two and made it into a skirt instead. It’s definitely an oldie (was not a fan of the dress to be completely honest) but glad I was able to turn it into something I would wear.

What have you made lately? I’d love to hear.

I finally began to do some “spring cleaning” and found an old blue dress I forgot I even had. It was a simple dress – nothing fancy. I wasn’t a fan of the top portion so instead of tossing it I split it in two and turned it into a skirt. Voila!

What do you think? Have you done anything creative lately? Share!
