DIY: Flocking, it’s not just for hair!

I know it’s been awhile, but as the saying goes, better late than never! I can’t even tell you how much I enjoy sharing with all of you and wish I could do more! I have so many ideas!

We are approaching Spring and it should be all butterflies, baskets, and weddings…but while embarking on my latest obsession of re-rooting and flocking hair, it dawned on me that flocking could be used for some fashion accessories, namely shoes (to mimic suede or velvet)!

Summer Doll Holiday

IMG_1954As many of you know, it takes a lot of time and energy to keep cranking out DIY tutorials  and blog posts when you have a more than full-time job and responsibilities.

Doll Style: Custom Accessories

Mattel has really pulled through with on trend accessories, but many times the colors are still a little off for the true Fashionista! Personally I like items to look as real as possible and bright colors aren’t always what I go to first. This is where customizing comes into play. There are so many ways to give these plastic accessories a more realistic look to complement your favorite outfits. In this post, I will be focusing on just adding touches of paint to go from bright to right!
