Finally got my #new #vanity all set up. It took me about a day to paint and seal it so not too bad. I think it was well worth it. Can’t believe someone was going to throw this out! #upcycle #barbiegirl #princess #shabbychic #vintage #chalkpaint #pink #mint #stencil #lush #makeup #diy #diyproject #dinglehopper #treasure

Upcycled Wrist Warmers

Baby, it’s cold outside and these little wrist warmers keep you warm & cute as a button. Below is an easy-as-pie upcycled DIY on how to make a pair of wrist warmers from old socks:

1 knee-high sock

1 fancy button

lace (at least enough to go around the bottom of your sock)

sewing machine

needle & thread

Cut the foot off your sock. I used a knee-high sock so I trimmed a bit off the cuff as well, but you don’t need to if you like the length or are using a shorter sock.

Add lace or trim to the cut end of your sock. This is functional as well as fashionable. You get a little flair for your wrist warmer and it also keeps your sock from unraveling.

Sew the trim to your sock with the right sides touching so that your seam is on the inside of your wrist warmer.

I added a button and a little gathering for an extra touch. The gathering is done by running a short basting stitch up about 3 inches of your wrist warmer, then pulling tightly and knotting off.

Here are some of the personalisation ideas I found and am planning on experimenting with.
