A well-placed accessory has turned many a bad hair day or messy up-do into a style statement. It’s my go-to for busy mornings or uncooperative buns when I just need a little extra somethin somethin to complete the look. Instead of wearing mass-produced flower headbands and festival-fashion in your hair, try classing things up with this easy succulent hairpin DIY!
Right now, I’m all about staying organized as well as keeping my stuff to a bare minimum. So, when the mood strikes to craft, I like to make something useful instead of just adding more stuff to my world. I made my own card case about a year ago, and the only thing better than the compliments I got was being able to respond with, “Oh, thanks, just a little something I made” (editor’s note: this really needs an emoji winky face).
It’s so satisfying (dare I say empowering?) to use something you made with your own hands on a daily basis. And while working with leather might sound intimidating, trust me — it’s easier than you think and can be one of the most rewarding mediums with which to craft.
