Trash Into Treasures

posted by on 2011.10.21, under Chriselle Inc., DIY jewelry, Fashion Tutorials

Not sure if its because of the change in season but I found myself cleaning out my closet & drawers the other day. I found tons of  old & worn pieces which inspired me to create this tutorial.

Before you throw out your old this video and see if you can make any of your old pieces brand new again!

Materials Needed-
Sweater- Forever21
Pearls- Random Boutique & some from Forever 21
The thread, needle, sewing kit,scissors, pencil, & ruler all came in a package from Target!

Let me know if you guys want to see more DIY videos and if so what would you like to see me take from Trash Into Treasures?



they are selling a shirt identical to the one you make at forever 21
except its black with white pearls

You should think about all of these options if you want to get costume jewelry. This is a type of fashion jewelry that can be great for you to take a look at. It can come in many styles and can look just like real types of jewelry. It can especially be found online. This is a very inexpensive option to consider when finding fashion jewelry, try to visit Swiss watch online for Swiss watch jewelry online shopping convenience.

Hi Chriselle :) may I ask you how would you wear brown leather shorts so they will be wearable not just only in the early fall but also when is quite chilly outside? I tried to pair them with brown tights and brown boots and then just some pop of colour, but I’m not sure…can you help me please? By the way – I love your videos, I follow you since your very first video ^_^

I love this! Not only is it “green” and “eco-chic” to do something like this, but it breathes new life into pieces you thought you’d never wear again!

Have you ever thought of doing a highlight on eco-chic fashion? Either eco apparel lines that you are drawn to, or vintage highlights or whatever else?

I think that would be a great tutorial!
You should write a book one day. I love how you write these stories…
Some type of memoir.

I love these snapshots and peeks into your daily life.
