What you need:
-Chandelier crystals in colours of your choice
-Glitter
-A small zip Clutch
-Fevicol
-A Toothpick
-A Paintbrush

First, start by mixing fevicol and water in a plastic container in a 50:50 ratio. Once your glue is ready, pour the same amount of glitter in to the container and blend it in the glue. With your paintbrush apply the glitter-paste all over the clutch in generous amounts and wait for it to dry fully before adding another coat. When the second coat is dry, apply a layer of clear varnish to ensure it doesn’t flake off. Once that dries completely, using a toothpick, apply a dollop of glue in a line on the back of your chandelier crystals and stick them on to the clutch. Fan them out in the centre, or create your own unique patterns. Ta-da! You’ve just added some serious bling to your closet.

Floral Embellished Sunglasses
You know these sunglasses are totally IN this season, so instead of splurging on a designer pair why not try creating your own? Make yourself these cool shades that will grab attention everywhere!

What you need:
-A pair of sunglasses (They can be wayfarers, cat-eyed, square or round)
-Ceramic flowers in varied shapes
-An instant, adhesive super glue like Fevikwik
-Toothpicks

Using a toothpick, add a drop of glue to the back of the flowers and then firmly stick them onto the frames of the glasses, starting from the outer corners and then using smaller flowers along the top. You will need to hold each flower in place for a minute so that they stick efficiently. Once the flowers have dried in their place, unfold the sunglasses and stick a few flowers on the arms as well. Repeat this on the other side and be sure to let it dry fully. You’re going to be summer ready with one of the hottest sunglass trends of the season.

What you need:
-An old phone cover
-Acrylic paints in 3 to 4 shades of your choice
-A sponge
-A paintbrush

Begin painting your cover, starting from the top. You can either use one colour in different shades or you can use 2 different colours, ensuring the lightest shades are in the centre. Use water to dilute the paint in the area where the next shade begins. The sponge will help blend in each shade perfectly. Once the cover is completely dry, add a layer of clear varnish to hold the paint in place.

Colour Blocked Pants
As I’ve said before, colour blocking may have been around for long now but still continues to influence newer fashion trends, such as these funky colour blocked pants that were seen on the runways at the New York Fashion Week. Here’s an easy way to transform an old pair of pants in to this fun trend.

What you need:
-An old pair of jeans or pants
-Fabric paint in your fave colour
-Masking tape

Decide how much of the bottom you would like to paint, it could be from the hem to the calf or it could be a thinner stripe just at the bottom. Use masking tape where you want your colour to begin and start painting in the area between the hem and the masking tape. Make sure the tape is a straight line and use a good amount of paint. Once the paint is completely dry, turn the pants inside out and repeat it on this side before carrying out the entire process on the other leg. Once, both sides are fully dry, fold the bottom of the pants in to a cuff and you have yourself the perfect pants for Spring-Summer.
