I don’t know how the weather has been where you live, but here in Utah, it’s been cold. Like, unreasonably cold. The kind of cold where you need to wear a face mask to walk your dog… or go for a run…. or even look out the window. It’s been so cold that the only place I feel warm anymore is inside a hot yoga studio or the gym sauna

Because after you’re bones are that cold, you need to thaw them out and get extra toasty.

If you live in a crazy-cold climate, you’ve absolutely got try this. Your welcome.

And for the freezing walk back to your car, wear this DIY beanie to stay cozy.

DIY a trendy embellished beanie from an upcycled broken recycled necklace

This beanie is my absolute favorite because it makes me feel feminine when I’m lounging around or in the most casual situations. I love the contrast and extra detail the embellishments add. What do you think?

You’d never guess where these embellishments came from.

Go ahead. Take a guess!

It’s from my old broken jewelry!

If you don’t have broken jewelry lying around like I did, you can always pick up some beads from a local craft store or use rhinestones, studs, or even printable t-shirt transfers to make a look that’s totally your own!

Tip: If you’re going to use a Printable T-Shirt Transfer, be sure it specifies the colors you can use it on so your project comes out the way you envisioned. 

Supplies To Make This DIY Beanie

DIY a trendy embellished beanie from an old necklace

DIY Beanie Steps:

  1. Remove the chain from the necklace using jewelry pliers (there is a link above for the ones I love)
  2. Place the jewelry across your beanie and decide what looks best. You may separate each pendant more to create a more interesting look, or choose to only use the center stone. It’s your beanie. You decide what looks best!
  3. Thread your hand sewing needle
  4. Starting from the inside of your beanie, attach the embellishment in place.
  5. Slide on your new embellished beanie and enjoy!

Tip: By looping your thread in between the stones, the thread will stay less visible

This little beanie would pair well with the Velvet Infinity Scarf DIY from earlier last month or the No-Sew Jacket tutorial. Since all of these projects take no more than 20 minutes, you could have a jacket, scarf, and hat all in less than an hour!
