DIY doily shorts

Stay stylish without going broke by giving new life to old jeans. High-waisted momjeans from the thrift shop can be gorgeous with a little bit of work

There's countless things you can do to doctor up your old denim. In the pair above, jeans were first marked with chalk at the desired length. The legs of the jeans were then cut, then a seam was stitched a half inch from the bottom edge of each leg of the shorts. The edges were then frayed by hand. Next, a large doily was cut in half and pinned down to the leg. Be sure to line up the center of the doily with the seam on the outside of the leg. next, stitch the doily securely to the leg.

 These shorts are a quick&easy way to make yourself some cute new clothes

Cabochon Ring DIY

I just added these pretty little cabochon rings back into my shop a few days ago and they've really been a hit!
They are dainy and adorable, but the best thing is, they are super simple to make. The hardest part is finding the supplies. Etsy has a huge selection of cabochons and ring bases, you just have to shop around a little to find the best price on what you're looking for.
here's a few places to find your cabochons-
40 pretty pastel mixed cabochons
45 pc. bright mum mix
32 cute little roses
Hobby Lobby and local bead and craft stores sometimes carry cabochons as well

Other than cabochons, you'll need a ring base and some E6000 (or similar) glue
Once you've gathered your supplies, follow these easy steps-
