Friday I'm in Love: 11 Accessories YOU can make today

For this week's Friday inspiration post, I scoured the Internet for the BEST accessory tutorials. And boy, did I find some great projects! Several of them have been on my to-do list for a while now and I'm excited to finally try them!

 Check out all of these projects and visit these talented bloggers!

1. Painted Bobby Pin Tutorial from Love Design Sunshine
This tutorial is so simple, yet brilliant. I have a ton of bobby pins around my house and I love the idea of creating cheap, fast accessories by painting them with nail polish.

Love. Design + Sunshine.

2. Chunky Black Statement Necklace from My Girlish Whims
I have a soft spot for jewelry making, although I don't get to do it nearly as often as I'd like. Some tools are needed to create this necklace, but the actual skills needed don't look too bad. This tutorial seems reasonably easy for any crafter with basic-to-intermediate skills.

3. Book Page Necklace from Mandipidy
I LOVE this necklace. The idea of turning my favorite books into a necklace really intrigues me. I like the idea of using a line or section from one of my favorite books, so I can have it with me everywhere I go.


4. Hair Comb Tutorial from Lemon Jitters
This is another super-simple looking tutorial that has nice results. I like how fast this project looks to do and the many options for customization, given how many different colors of embroidery floss are available.

5. Rosette Bracelet Tutorial from Sew.Craft.Create.
This bracelet is gorgeous. The end result looks complicated to me, but the tutorial is great and makes it seem so simple. I need to get one of these into my bracelet collection PRONTO!


6. Ric Rac Rose Ring from The Ribbon Retreat
How cute is this ring? I think it's adorable and I love the detailed tutorial from The Ribbon Retreat. I like the idea of making a few of these, in different colors.

7. Ways to Repurpose Clip-On Earrings from Ruffles And Stuff
I like the idea of clip-on earrings being used in somewhat trendy projects. The ideas on this site are great and she gives 10 different ways to use clip-on earrings. This makes me want to run to the mall to stock up on clip ons!

8. Simple and Sweet Pendants from Simply Creating Home
These pendants truly are sweet, just like their name. I like any craft that works in scrapbook paper. Buying the scrapbook paper is my favorite part of any paper project. To be able to use some pretty paper to make jewelry sounds pretty great to me!

9. T-shirt Flowers from Green Your Way
Who doesn't have plenty of old t-shirts laying around the house? This project makes use of all those old tees--by making something pretty. As a bonus, this site also came up with several other ways to repurpose an old t-shirt.

10. Braided Bracelet from Sweet November
I like the delicate look of this bracelet from the pearls beaded in. This is a 5-minute project and the results are beautiful!

11. Paperclip Earrings from Evie S.
These earrings meet my criteria for a great DIY accessory--simple, lots of customization options, and super cute! This project seems like a clear win!
