Double DIY- Sequin Collar & Head Chain

So who loves things that are unique.....1 of a kind and more importantly affordable???

Hmmmm........I DO

hahaha so what could be better then not 1 but 2 DIY's!

These 2 DIY'S are incredibly simple and so much fun! It will just take a bit of time on your part, but trust me the results are well worth it!

SEQUIN COLLAR

TOOLS NEEDED
-Blouse of your choice
- Sequin Rope ( a row of sequins so much faster then using individual sequins)
- Hot Glue Gun (saves all the sewing, and i suck at treading needles)
-Scissors
-Pins

So for this DIY i already had everything that i needed except for the sequin rope, which i bought from a craft shop for $4 a meter. I bought 2mts. Which is plenty for my collar and there is heaps left over to do the cuffs if you wanted to.
The great thing about this DIY is you can really personalize it! You can choose  contrasting  sequins to the top for more of a "Colour Blocking" look or you can go for similar or the same sequins like i have! Its completely your choice!



NOTE- Let the blouse dry for at least 12hrs before you wear it!
ALSO Cold hand wash ONLY!


HEAD CHAIN

TOOLS NEEDED
- Chain- I got mine from Bunnings $3mt- I got 3mts.
-Jump Rings
-Lobster Claw Clips
-Pliers

So im in LOVE with head chain....but sadly where i live there is little to no choice and the 1 or 2 head chains that are for sale everyone else has! So there is NO uniqueness.
This is such a simple and versatile head chain! You can really make it your own by varying the chain that you use, how many runs your put in, and also by the colour. Its so simple to spray paint it once your done (just make sure its 10000% dry before you wear it, and avoid getting it wet)!
Ill admit that this did take more time and require some patience and it can be quite fiddly but the results were well worth it!
TIP- i found that it was hard to keep track of which run when where etc, so i put some sticky tap on then and colour coded them with texter to help me out!






Oh and some of you may be wondering YES my hair is purple~!
I used FUDGE Paint Box in Blueberry Hill! I LOVE IT!

  3. I love the look of your Blueberry Hill FUDGE Paint Box purple hair colour! I hadn't seen head chains before, but I'm reclusive and live on the other side of the world from you (United States East Coast). Having seen how windy it can get where you live in one of your videos it seems like a great idea in addition to being a pretty fashion look. You're quite talented and look very adept with the pins, glue gun and pliers. Your sequin collar, head chain, your hair, makeup, Mabeline Dark Plum nail polish, blouse (and you) all look lovely. I like your pretty log eyelashes too. Thanks for the replies to my comments on YouTube! :D

    I'm following your blog now on my Blogspot blog Full Brief Panties. It shows up as Make Me Stunning - Jade on the front of my blog but it's only a single dot . on my profile page - haven't been able to fix that yet. Love all your videos. I'm subscribed to you from my YouTube (Mister Panty Buns's Channel) and hope you don't mind me listing you on Twitter under fashionista-bloggers and beautiful-makeup on Twitter where I'm @Panty_Buns

    Thank you for answering my question about what kind of mine that is. This is probably a silly unrelated question - I know Australia is a huge country and continent, but I wondered whether you'd ever seen the TV series La Femme Nikita starring Peta Wilson?

    I follow another fashionista blogger from down under who will be getting married soon - Imogen of Tia_Cherie who lives in Sydney.

    Sorry if I'm repeating myself but I think you and your videos are fascinating.
