Take and Make


You know all those things you see on Pinterest or someone’s blog that you want to try, but just never get around to? Well, today I decided to actually try a few…

Ashley from The Shine Project posted a Les Mis-inspired braid tutorial that I really wanted to try. Clearly, I don’t have even half the hair she does (Some of us were blessed with such things I suppose. Unfortunately, I’m not one of them), BUT I still wanted to try it.

My mom, sister-in-law, Collette, and I were making a quick trip to Michael’s anyway, looking for some satin elastic to make hair ties. Alas, they didn’t have that, but we did find some vintage-inspired lace and tried a few different styles with it (including the one from Ashley’s tutorial).

It turned out more like Katniss Everdeen goes Victorian than Les Mis, but we tried.

This last one was something I saw on TV. It’s basically the simplest up-do ever. You basically just roll your hair into an elastic head band and clip some lace at the back. If you’d like a step-by-step tutorial, comment below, and I’ll post one later in the week.

What did you make today?
