I tried to make friendship bracelets out of some leftover embroidery thread I found in my room, but my adult hands are somehow less skilled than my 10-year-old hands and I wound up with one big colorful… knot.
To make myself feel better -- and less like a total DIY loser -- I started to think of other nostalgic jewelry from my childhood. I found this kids' craft site that gives you instructions and cute patterns that show how to make brooches. All you need are some safety pins and beads, and in no time flat you’ll be in possession of a great spring accessory. Move over Tiffany’s! Hello beaded wonders of style and frugality!
The horse looks great on my denim jacket. I named her Daisy and she likes apples.
