DIY: Ugly Christmas Sweater 2014 (Abominable Snowmonster)

It's tradition that every year during the holidays I make an ugly Christmas sweater. This year was no different, and not only did I make one ugly Christmas sweater, I made two!

I won my first tacky sweater contest with this one below:


 It's the Grinch sneaking into a house to steal Christmas presents LOL!

And then the one below is probably my favorite so far:
It's the Abominable Snowmonster of the North all tangled up in Christmas lights with Christmas tree halves in each hand!

DIY: Multi-Chain Sandals

It's not an uncommon thing to get rid of sandals you never wear anymore. But, I only wore these sandals once :-/...


ONCE! (-_-) I can't put my finger on why I've only worn them once, but maybe it has to deal with me not being satisfied with the look of them anymore. So, instead of getting rid of them, I decided to revamp their look to fit my fashion needs. And this is how they turned out...


 

 (Don't mind my toes LOL)

VOILA! A new pair of sandals that I absolutely la-la-love! ☺ I added gold chains to them because I wanted a dressier sandal versus a casual one since I already have a bunch. I've already gotten plenty of compliments on them too hehe (^_^). Everything you need to know on how to make a pair is down below! 

What You'll Need!
-Sandals (purchased from Charlotte Russe a year ago)
-Chains (purchased from Walmart for ~$3-4)
-Hot glue (got a new one as a gift from my boyfriend☺♥)

Check out how to make it down belooow!
