DIY cardigan. :)
See more DIY on my <a href="http://www.starsforstreetlights.blogspot.com">blog!</a>

I always look through the site and find myself thinking, “I could totally do that!” but I just never get around to buying a base cardigan, shirt, or dress. Think of all the cheap sweaters at Forever 21 or H&M that you can decorate!

  • How to make a cardigan. Anthropologie Sweater - Step 1
    Step 1

    First you need to cut out petals from a fabric that will not fray. Or if you want to use a fabric that is not a natural fiber, you can burn the edges to make a more organic look. I used a little velveteen feeling fabric that I upcycled from an old skirt from a thrift store.

    Next you need to organize the petals in the place that you want to put them on the cardigan before you glue them down.

    Next you need to glue the petals into place! I used Aleene’s fabric glue— it works great and you can wash it! Don’t get the glue in places that it will show, though.

  • Step 4

    After the glue is dry, you can sew the beads into place. I used about 5 beads per flower. Sew them securely into place and you have your Anthropologie-esque sweater!
