I Spy DIY’s Jenni Radosevich’s Sandal Tutorial

Easy Does It: Tribal-Print Sandals

Easy tribal-print kicks

DIY footwear conjures images of postpedicure paper flip-flops and plastic bags taped over shoes in the rain.

Here to elevate the idea is I Spy DIY’s Jenni Radosevich. For today’s Easy Does It video, we gave her a pair of $17 H&M sandals and told her to make them special for less than $20.

The result: seriously cute, tribal-inspired kicks that took about 45 minutes, start to finish, to doll up. All you need is colorful string, glue, scissors, and a can-do attitude. Just kidding — you don’t even need a can-do attitude (it’s that easy).

Her trick can also be applied — literally — to belts, bracelets, hair bands, you name it.

If you want more (you will), check out her new book, I Spy DIY Style, for enough ideas to keep you busy all summer.

No fake flower hair clips as shoe adornments in sight.

I Spy DIY Style is available online at amazon.com, $15. To see Radosevich’s inspiration, go to ispydiy.com. Want to learn to do more cool stuff? Watch our videos on getting Madonna-worthy hair, making a Kentucky Derby hat, or constructing a candelabra from stuff at the hardware store.

How to Create a Wedding-Day Chignon

How to Create a Wedding-Day Chignon

An Easy DIY Updo with Stylist Michael Angelo

There are things you don’t want on your wedding day (rain, red wine stains). And things you really don’t want (bad shellfish, terrible hair).

Safeguard against the latter by doing your hair yourself. (Yes, we’re serious.)

In today’s video, Michael Angelo, founder/owner of Wonderland Beauty Parlor in NYC, creates an elegant chignon that you (or your mom) can easily DIY. All you need are bobby pins, a rubber band, a curling iron, and some sculpting product. Add a special touch with clips or flowers.

What’s the appeal? You’ll look more natural — and the hairstylist is with you the entire reception should any strands fall. Not to mention, more money for the things you do want (expensive booze).
