Sometimes you just have to buckle down and force yourself into action in order to get out of a rut. For the last few weeks I have been in a bit of a creativity rut. I get home from work feeling like my brain power is spent and I have no interest in starting a new project or finishing anything for that matter. I hate to admit it but, I have a few half finished projects lazing around the house just waiting for me to get my act together.
Today I decided it was time to power through my creativity block and complete a project. There was one project that I have been dying to do for the last couple of months, a DIY Chevron Necklace! Back in January when I was on my statement necklace craze, I stumbled upon this tutorial and have been slowly collecting the bits that I needed to complete the project. Production of the necklace involves the perfect balance of mess and creativity and ends in an amazingly fun finished product. Perfect for breaking out of a creativity rut!
After work I took stock of all the supplies that I had and the ones that I still needed, I had everything except the penne. Easily remedied. With pasta, rope (I didn’t feel like ripping up a t-shirt so, I bought some rope instead), a glue gun, paint and a few scrapes of fabric in hand I was ready to get busy. But first dinner.
After dinner I set to work, first painting the pasta and then measuring the cord. Once the paint had dried I strung the pasta on the cord and finally glued everything together! Visit Design Sponge for detailed instructions.
ps. What’s with the current Dutch Baby craze? They seem to be popping up everywhere.
I’m pretty sure I started it.
