DIY LOVE: part 1

hi there! i have a bunch of cute DIYs to share with you over the next few days! 

1. I fell completely in love with Marc Jacobs’ adorable mouse flats the first time i saw them. They are quirky, yet still very wearable and sweet. They cost a pretty penny, though ($$$), and are unfortunately probably not within everyone’s budget. Here is a cute DIY version which I would love to see adapted with different materials! I am planning to make some soon… maybe with vinyl, crystals and permanent ink! Maybe I should make a pair for my sister too? enjoy….

2. I’ve been loving all of the pretty wreaths lately in blog land! Here’s the cutest one I saw last week [via Smile and Wave, via the adorable CandiMandi]. It’s made from a thrifted shirt! genius.
