DIY Halloween Fairy Fashion Inspired Skeleton Couture Tutorial

Crafty friends! Who’s searching for a quick and easy last minute Halloween craft? Look no further! These Halloween fairy-fashion inspired skeletons are so cute! I had so much fun dressing up mini-skeletons for a Skeleton Couture photo shoot! These make for a fun and creative party activity, a cute Halloween party favor, a creepy but stylish decorative accent or whip up your own type of hide and seek or ‘elf on the shelf’ inspired game for Halloween.

What I did:

I simply created fairy-inspired fashion accessories for the skeletons using butterflies, feathers and flowers and secured them to the skeletons with hot glue. It really doesn’t get much easier!

Then we had a bit of a fashion photo shoot outside…

I have to admit, it kind of brought back some childhood memories of playing with paper dolls and Barbie dolls (although in a creepier Halloween kind of way). lol What fun!

Casual Winter Fashion

What’s on your holiday wish list this year? 

Just because I mainly blog about do-it-yourself home improvement/decorating and my ‘work’ uniform mostly consists of yoga pants, t-shirts, sweatshirts, paint clothes doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy ‘cleaning up’ too. Most days:

DIY clothing

I’m definitely a girl-y girl with a love of clothes, fashion, make up, jewelry and shoes. Some days:

Roeshel

In fact, since my purchases throughout the year mostly consist of home decor, home improvement projects materials, craft supplies and of course my essential oils and gifts for others, holidays are reserved for adding a few pretty non DIY related gifts to my wish list.

And since I no longer have the need for a business or business casual wardrobe, my style has evolved into something more casual and fun. Instead of heels with a business suit, now I’m loving my heels with jeans (distressed are my favorite) and a warm sweater, fun jewelry and pretty accessories. THOSE are my winter must haves. 

So when Macy’s sent over this Casual Winter Outfit inspiration and I could totally see me wearing this, I knew I’d love to share it and to be able to pin it to my wish list Pinterest board. This year when I opened my closet to dig around for cold weather appropriate attire (brrrr…it’s snowing, you guys!), I felt as if my summer clothes outnumbered the cooler weather ensembles. Shuffling seasonal wardrobes around is definitely on the to-do list.

LOVE the look! What about you? Gathering ideas for your holiday wish list? Thinking you need a few more cooler weather options in your wardrobe? I’d love to hear what’s on your wish list.

A fashion photo shoot and a diva

The other day, I was helping out Bri’s friend, Amber, who is opening an Etsy shop soon by taking some photos for her shop, Electric Bright…

and a certain someone couldn’t stand not being the center of attention on the ‘catwalk’…

during wardrobe changes, she had to show off her foofy coat…

and photo-bomb a few shots, get crazy, pop out from under the sheet, even knock over the backdrop! From 399 pictures, some where not fashion related. Model, prop and dust mop {look closely to that tail}…

I’ll share a link to Electric Bright Etsy shop and tell you more about it when it’s open. Congratulations to Amber! And Bri has some plans in the works as well and can’t wait to tell you all about that.  

Hope you’re having a great weekend! 

DIY Project Parade

It’s been a busy week!  My DIY projects this week consisted of making 3 corsages and 2 bouttonierres for prom. As I showed you here, I made a silk corsage for my daughter…
It all started with me making a silk corsage every year for my special needs cousin’s end-of-school-year dinner & dance.  This year she’s wearing purple…
I love that she has a special lasting memento with a silk corsage every year. I also take her pictures every year and I spritz her corsage with a perfume or body spray – she loves that.  
This year I also made the corsage for my nephew’s prom date…
Materials:  Silk flowers, ribbon, gems, wrist corsage thingies (an elastic pearl one or velcro type – found at Michaels or Joann Fabrics). Hot glue. Green florist tape.  I use wire cutters if needed. 
Here are some more examples of DIY wrist corsages…
