DIY: Fancy Gloves

Hello all! This is my first ever DIY post and it's the easiest thing in the world. No sewing or gluing required and you get more bang for your buck!

What you'll need: 
                               1. A pair of gloves - your choice (mine are Isotoners I bought on sale for $10)
                           
                                2. Two matching bracelets (stretch work best) or Clip-On earrings


I originally thought I would sew some pearls or a stretch bracelet on to a pair of gloves, but then thought to myself, Why be so limiting? I am fickle and like to change handbags and accessories like I change underwear (yes, that would be on a daily basis) so I decided to show a few different ways you can use your accessories to make beautiful and unique gloves.

Maybe you don't have matching stretch bracelets. I scour clearance racks and buy a couple of the same bracelet at times so I can stack them. The ones I've used above were $3 a piece and under.
They look pretty don't they? All I did was slip the stretch bracelets over top of my gloves and voila! Elegant gloves with a tough edge.


I also used some of my big clip-on earrings to add a more subtle detail to the gloves.
Here is a different pair just to show off how awesome gold looks with the gloves too!

You can use hard bracelets too. I love mixing black and brown - So chic!

Go on dahhhlings, give it a try!

I just love the idea of re-purposing bracelets and clip-ons to transform one pair of gloves into so many different looks! You could use pearl bracelets, wrap ribbon around it to make a sweet bow or any other thing you could imagine! All with no damage to the gloves. Gotta love it!

What do you think of this idea?

  45. Designer catier watches look sophisticated and stylish. Designer handbags are always light in weight as well as spacious. Now-a-days winter jackets serves not only its practical function, but also is used as a status symbol for emphasizing the user's identity. The miu miu hobo variety that you can get in handbags is tremendous. if you look at the various brands of cheap chanel shopping and you will find that qualities and brands never go parallel to each other. There cheap hermes handbags will be something different with the different products.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
