DIY Licorice Allsorts Necklace (Super Easy!)

What’s this? Photos of ME, actually WEARING my creations?? 😯 Yep, that’s right! I decided 22 was going to be my best year yet, which means trying new things and pushing myself out of my comfort zone 🙌

I am NOT a huge fan of photos of myself, but I had no other way to showcase today’s super fun DIY project, so I set up my backdrop, lights, mirror, and tripod (first time using it!) and had a go! Hopefully I’ll get more comfortable in front of the camera as time goes on. But, enough about me! Let’s get onto the tutorial ☺️


♡ Foam sheets in black, orange, pink, and white
♡ Craft glue

These DIY office supplies are a SUPER easy way to add a bit of personality to your decor, and they perfectly show off your true love for pizza 🍕 Before we get onto the tutorial, let’s talk toppings!

Sometimes I’ll add extras, such as capsicum or mushrooms, but each slice HAS to have all those other items on it or else I won’t eat it 🙅‍♀️ Anyway, let’s get onto the project!Read More »
