DIY: Safety Pins Top

What I love in styling is creativity. The whole process of creating something unique, according to your imagination and style, has always amazed me. Ever since I was 5 years old, when I personally asked my mother to help me rip off my jeans. Since then, when I am bored of my old clothes, I come up with many ideas to use them again , and to individualize them in accordance to my personal taste.

Steps:
  1. Choose a loose top (it can also be a sweater, a dress, a jean jacket, or whatever), so that your creation will not be destroyed when stretched.
  2. Buy plenty of safety pins, they are pretty cheap (you can also use a combination of gold and silver ones, or colorful, in many different sizes, depending on what you intend to create).
  3. Design the layout of what you imagined (I used a cd marker, you can also use a chalk or a piece of soap). It can be a word, a sign or something abstract.
  4. Start creating, it's so much fun!

I would L-O-V-E to see your creations! 
I'm waiting for your opinion, outfit pictures are about to come,
Many Kisses Darlings!

PS: A special thanks to those wonderful ladies, who gave me a huge excitement with their lovely awards, I swear, I love it when you express your appreciation to my blog! Don't forget to visit Alexa , Jezebel, and Joanna from Bittersweet Life, those girls are amazing. Love you all!

Love this very creative! Might have to give it a go, I'd always rather customise something rather than throw it away!

WOW! That looks great! Back in the day (when this was acceptable) my friend and I would cut the sides of shirts like this and then safety pin them together. This is such a better idea..hahah. Very cute darling. xoxo

Λατρεύω τα DIY projects! Τ έκανες πραγματικά αγνώριστο και πολύ στυλάτο. Αυτό πάει να πει φαντασία και αίσθηση του στυλ!
