Well here's something I haven't done in a while — can you believe there's a new DIY up on the site? I hardly can. But like I said in my first post of the year, I want to create more content specifically catered to what you guys want to see, and the people have spoken — so DIYs it is. To kick things off, I thought it would be fun to recreate a coveted designer piece for A LOT less, plus one that's super easy and minimal in terms of supplies needed. That's right friends, we're going all Anya Hindmarch up in here.
SUPPLIES: SMALL CARD HOLDER | PEN | ACRYLIC PAINT | PAINT BRUSHES
To start, lightly draw out the shape of your eyes using a pen. To keep to the Anya aesthetic, you'll want to keep them low on the base of the card holder and relatively close together. From there, fill in the circles you drew with thin layers of white paint, allowing each layer to dry before applying the next.
When everything is nice and dry, grab your black paint and carefully create a circle on the bottom right corner of each white circle. Again, use thin layers of paint and start small — you can always increase the size of your circles as you go, but you certainly can't make them any smaller! Take your time with this step, and be sure to look at the designer's version of the holder while you're doing it.
If painting isn't your thing, you could always cut out pieces of felt into little circles and glue them on to your card holder, or even use stickers to create the same effect. All I know is that you'll end up with a super cute, playful way to store your cards, and for a few hundred dollars less. Win-win.
