21 Day Challenge: Day 6

Day 6
   Get Creative

To be honest, I had no idea what I was going to do here. I had barely excepted belts into my wardrobe and now I'm supposed to be creative? BUT, funny enough I had come across this amazing tutorial for a tie to be sewn into a necklace a couple of weeks ago and I had already hit up Goodwill trying to find some good ties. {the Hubs has this amazing Ralph Lauren tie that I so wanted to do this with, but I'm pretty sure he wouldn't let me!} So, last night I sat on my couch and pinned the tie and sewed it up!



Shirt- Forever 21
Jeans- JCP
Shoes- American Eagle
Tie- Thrifted, sewn to make my necklace

Here's another picture of just the tie necklace. This tie was brown and has small mustard colored stripes. Oh and it says "Coors" on it in red thread! I spent maybe 2 hours trying to figure out what to do to cover up "Coors" and finally I dug through my bead box and found these faux pearl and rhinestone stickies that I just plopped right on top. If you look closely you can so see the red still, but whatever. It works for now.  :o)



You can find the tutorial for this here.

I'm off to make Breakfast for the Hubs...who got called out to some ridiculous "emergency" last night and was gone from 11-midnight and then 2am-7am. Poor guy!

Have a good weekend!
