I had a wedding a few weeks ago (not my own, of course). My man was in the wedding (not as the groom, of course!) and naturally I wanted to match him - the wedding color being Purple (which also happens to be my favorite color! No way!) I also wanted to create my own dress and thought it would be an excellent time to try a how-to from one of my favorite blogs: Sweet Verbena.

After creating the dress - An easy, breezy, beautiful (and super comfortable) maxi dress, I decided I wanted to try my hand at dip-dyeing and the ombre look. I experimented a little and was super happy with the results:
I can't wait to try this technique with other articles of clothing! I've also created a How-To for the Ombre Dip-Dying Technique, if you are interested in trying yourself!

Also, check out the How-To by Sweet Verbena for the Boho Maxi Dress, she really deserves all the credit for creating such an excellent how-to for an awesome dress!
One of the very first things I learned to DIY was stenciling a t-shirt. I discovered the joy of creating and applying my own, one of a kind stencil to create my own one of a kind t-shirt. Stenciling is a great way to give a unique and specific gift to someone. I've made tons of shirts this way and I have shared my own how-to for Stenciling a Shirt but I have yet to share a how-to on creating your own stencil. I'm not the most adobe photoshop savvy person, but this is how I do it based on tips and techniques I have picked up over time! This same technique can be used to create a template for carving a pumpkin! Enjoy!
