DIY Birthday Gifts

My lovely friend Christine's birthday is this week and a bunch of us decided to celebrate last Friday night. The night started here and ended here. ;)

Both S. and I decided to make Christine's BD gifts (something I've never done).

This is S's creation. Gorgeous, non? The keyholes were purchased from an antique market in Milan. To see some of S's other creations, click here.


This is my creation....a lovely feather hair clip. (I'm just happy you can't see the glue!!). I bought the feathers from Sussman's Bridal Supplies on Queen Street and the gold button from macFAB.


Worried that Christine would pretend to like my clip and then put away it in a drawer, I also bought her Nina Garcia's latest book, The Style Strategy. Have you've read it yet? I just bought myself a copy and awaiting its arrival!

What was your latest DIY project? Did it turn out?

To Christine - Hope you have a fabulous birthday week!

What a lucky birthday girl! Great job on the clip.

I can't remember the last DIY project I tackled, which is probably good since I need to rest before all the wedding DIY.
