How to Make Your Own Accessories

With all the summer beach parties and BBQs comin' up, you may feel as though you need to spend a lot of dough to buy a ton of new outfits. That's where accessories come in cuz everyone knows that clothes may make the person, but accessories complete the outfit! Since accessories can get pricey, try creating your own unique styles by making them yourself.

Beaded Bracelets and Necklaces

Jewelry is an important part of your outfit, so try experimenting with different beads and crystals. You can go funky with eclectic beads for a beach bash, and go classy with pearls for a dinner out with your parents.

Materials:

  • Assorted beads.
  • Beading wire (a soft, nylon-coated wire).
  • Clasp.
  • Wire cutters.

Instructions:

1) Measure the length you want for your bracelet or necklace. Then add two inches to that and cut it.
2) Secure one end of the clasp onto the wire, string on the beads and secure the other end of the clasp.

Floral Hair Pin

Even if you're not a celebrity, you can look like one by pinning a floral pin in your hair, just like Paris Hilton does. Try out different colors and types of flowers - wear a white lily in your hair one day and a red rose another day!

Materials:

  • Fabric flower.
  • Barette or elastic band.
  • Needle and thread.
  • Beads, crystals, sequins (optional).

Instructions:

1) Cut the stem off a fabric flower.
2) Sew the barette or elastic band to the back of the flower.
3) Decorate the flower as you like.

Leather Wrap Watch

Create a cool new watch by putting a modern twist on an old one. Once you're done, just wrap it around your wrist!

Materials:

  • One 22" strap of leather with tapered ends.
  • Two 10" straps of leather.
  • An old watch face with top and bottom handles.
  • Glue-on rhinestones or metal studs (optional).

Instructions:

1) Tie the two thin strips of leather to the top watch face handle.
2) Loop the straps under the center of the thick leather strap and attach them to the bottom watch face handle.
3) With the watch face secured to the thick leather strap, wrap it around your wrist.
4) If you want to jazz it up, glue rhinestones or metal studs to the leather strap.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

rainbowpoptart
Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.

If that fails, tell another trusted adult, like your mother. I'm sure someone you're close to would do their best to get justice. This is a major problem and it's a shame no one's done anything to help. ​No one listens to me anyway but my friends

Behaviour like that is not acceptable in the slightest. ​Teacher said to wait for the Bus Driver and the counselor, she just talks to me and doesn't tell The Princible
