    We recently hosted a Crafts and Cocktails event with Zooey Magazine and A Beautiful Mess and spent an afternoon indulging in sweet treats and crafty DIY projects. Our Fabric Hanger DIY was a huge hit, so we're excited to share it with all of you too! If you're looking for a cute Mother's Day gift or a special hanger for your wedding dress, this DIY project is for you. ♥

    Supplies:
    Hanger
    Fabric
    Scissors
    Tacky Glue
    Ribbon

     Directions:
    1. Cut the fabric into long strips (about 1 inch wide).

    2. Take one end of a fabric strip and tie a knot at the top of the hanger.

    3. Wrap the fabric tightly around the hanger.

    4. Once you reach the end of the fabric, use tacky glue to secure it.

    5. Add more fabric strips with glue until the entire hanger is covered.

    6. Once you reach the top, tie the end of the fabric strip into a knot. 

    7. Cut off any excess fabric.

     8. Add a bow to cover the knots.

     9. Enjoy!

     Love it? Share it!

    We had the pleasure of meeting this charismatic Ruchette at the Vintages Whites Market back in February. Not only does she have a darling personality, but her style is just as cute! Scroll on down and learn more about our May Ruchette of the Month, Morgan! ♥

    Tell us a little bit about your personal style. How would you describe it?
    My personal style is usually a mix of classic pieces and girly accents. I love dressing up some dark skinnies and a tee with pretty heels or some glam accessories - or a simple pencil skirt with lots of feminine details.

    Who/what inspires your style? Any style icons? Favorite magazines?
    I have so many style inspirations. As far as bloggers go, a few of my favorites are definitely Mara of M Loves M, Kendi of Kendi Everyday, and Joy of Oh Joy! Celebs style icons - definitely Rachel Bilson, Reese Witherspoon and Blair Waldorf (does anyone else miss Gossip Girl!?).

    What are your everyday styling essentials? Jewelry? Lipstick?
    A classic watch (my favorite right now is my two-toned Marc by Marc Jacobs), lots of arm candy, and my Fresh SUGAR Lip Balm in Passion.
