I realize the words “DIY” and “Chanel” aren’t often thought of synonymously but today’s DIY will have you believing it! The ribbon for this tutorial was part of the packaging on a Chanel perfume gift box I received for Christmas last year and I have wanted to DIY something with it ever since!
It’s probably no big surprise to y’all that I dressed as a “Chanel No. 1” from Scream Queens for the first Halloween party of the month! Apparently SQ isn’t a popular costume choice so I had to DIY my entire look from scratch! Here’s a little tutorial on how I made the sparkly pink, monogrammed nurse’s “cap” seen in the latest season.
You’re invited to dinner, betch. You better not be late.
Glad you could make it. But was it really ever up to you?
Now that you’re here we’ll start off with some Rosé.
It may look pretty now…
But we can’t guarantee it won’t be covered in blood…
…by the time dinner is over.
Eat up. There’s a lot more where that came from.
We’ll be serving Prune-X for dessert because you’re fat now… But somebody had to eat that betch. And you’re not leaving… until that entire bottle is empty.
Okay THAT was intense!!! Can you imagine being invited to a dinner party thrown by KKT?! We can — and this was our vision come to life! Ali Weber (of Oh La La Ali blog) and I collaborated to create the perfect Scream Queens Season 2 Virtual Premier Party! And YOU’RE invited! We’ll be live Snapping, Instagramming and Tweeting the premiere, so tune into social media September 20th at 9:00pm ET/PT to follow along and see our take on what happens!
Ali made that incredible chopped up, bloody “hand” in the fingerless glove, and it’s totally edible! Hop on over to her blog to learn how so you can plan your own Tuesday night party with this delicious treat! Make sure to invite your gal pals over for some bloody cotton ball rosé! I purchased a bottle of our favorite rosé, removed the label, and created my own DIY Scream Queens inspired label to replace it (to get that pink foil effect on the label I printed the design with a toner printer and ran it through a Minc). Next I popped some edible cotton candy on top to represent the Chanel’s favorite food group (cotton balls!) and splattered with some edible “blood!”
For props I pulled from my personal collection of home decór items and clothing everything I could think of that the Chanels might have in the KKT house, like my favorite satin robe (seen HERE before), Victoria’s Secret Bustier (see HERE before) & sleep mask (seen HERE before). Since the new Scream Queens season is apparently “Hospital” themed we decided to fill a few fake “syringes” with random candy like rock crystal, cotton candy and gummy eyeballs! The Chanels aren’t the brightest group of girls when it comes to the proper usage of food so it’s not crazily far fetched to think they might attempt to inject sugar instead of ingesting it (I mean, don’t we all wish we could skip those calories?!). The final “Hospital” touch was a fake bottle of pills (red and white candies) with a very fake looking prescription label that we could totally imagine a Chanel trying to use to poison her enemies. We found all our supplies at Michael’s, Amazon, Party City, Kroger & Target.
I love creating mock tableaus for inspiration when I’m planning a party. Even if I end up changing my outfit or party table layout, making a ‘practice’ run always gets my creative juices flowing! Today I’m sharing with you a little NYE party decor and outfit inspiration I shot last weekend at my house. Scroll to the end of the post for details on where I found all the pieces for the entire look. I hope you enjoy!
Awards season, and my favorite fashion week season, are in full swing, as are the yearly seasonal coffee flavors we anticipate with the coming of cooler weather! To celebrate, I’ve created a few fashion/runway/red carpet inspired printable coffee sleeves. I included some snaps of the runway looks that inspired the coozies as well! Let me know which is your favorite! Enjoy!
To print coffee sleeves, save desired templates to your desktop. Open a Word document and paste the image onto the page. Rotate and resize until the image looks like this, below:
Print your sleeve onto any color paper black ink will show up on. Trim excess paper and staple ends together. Slide sleeve on your desired cup from the bottom.
To make the gold foil coffee sleeve in my example photo I ran black card stock paper through a toner printer and used heat transfer foil on the ink to bring out the lettering.
If you use any of the coffee sleeves don’t forget to tag me in your Instagram (#MDLprintable) or Facebook (#MDLprintable) shares and snaps! I always share and re-gram my faves 🙂
