More on the outfit, I adore the tulle skirt trend. You can dress it up...or dress it down like I did here. The sweater is so inspiring, a mix of shapes and textures. I can't wait to incorporate this style into some of my designs.

You'll need: Acorns, Glitter, Jewel It Glue & Modge Podge
Simply brush on the Jewel It glue to the lower part of the acorn and then dip into the glitter. Roll the acorn around a bit to make sure it's covered. Let that sit to dry. The final step is sealing the glitter so it doesn't fall off and make a mess. Just cover the glittered part of the acorn with a thin layer of Modge Podge. Add these to any display and they will be sure to add a bit of Fall glam.

Have any old sweaters that are just taking up drawer space? This cardigan was a little too plain for me, the style isn't anything special so I decided it was time for it to go...NO wait!...it was time for me to get creative and turn it into a trending look. Glam it up!
I've been waiting to do a patterned piece with sequins for a while. So glad I chose this. It's such an easy DIY with fabulous results!
Sequin Ribbon (as seen above)
Felt circles (you can buy them precut or cut your own circles)
Simply glue the sequin strand down while winding it around the felt circle. I starting from the center, made sure the sequins slightly overlapped so it covered the entire felt.
Once you have as many sequin dots as you'd like, you can start figuring placement on your sweater. I played a bit with this, trying to get the dots a good spacing from one another. Then either glue them down with the fabric glue or sew them on. I decided to glue mine.
I love the results! So glam!

I've become quite fond of my journey through life and growing older. I seek and value growth. A lot of times when people get older they tend to 'settle down' in a sense of steady routine based on comfort. I'm one who likes to challenge that. Stepping outside of one's comfort zone, even in baby steps, is a good continual way to learn about life and different perspectives.
