DIY Chanel Espadrilles

It might not be clear from all the luxury products I DIY here, but I truly believe in investing in a few high quality pieces to keep and cherish forever.I was seriously considering buying a pair of genuine Chanel Espadrilles, convinced that I would wear them everyday and it would be well worth the $800-$1,200 to investment […]

DIY Perfume Vase

Are we all soooo glad it’s friday? Today’s DIY project came about because I really just missed having flowers on my desk. I love the idea of repurposing old perfume bottles and putting a few small flowers in them, but I really wanted a ton of flowers, so I thought of this! It takes only 5 […]

DIY Braille Wedding Nails

With wedding season here I’ve been trying to think about creative new ways for brides to show their style. Along with ma-luxe intern Claire (who is an amazing nail tech) we created a subtle and sweet way to show your love: spelling “I love you” in braille! We used silver nail beads and a handy […]

DIY Alberta Ferretti Party Shoes

When I spotted the beautiful heels at Alberta Ferretti’s spring 2014 runway show my heart skipped a beat! Not only are they seriously perfect for holiday parties, but they are soooo easy to DIY! I found these black heels in the wardrobe room at work, and spent about $5 on satin ribbon. Easy. Tools needed: a pair […]

DIY Paper Flower Wall

Today I have the pleasure of sharing a DIY I spent months making. It’s not a hard DIY, just time-consuming when done to scale. We decided to make the wall after one of our favourite ladies, Nina, created the most beautiful paper roses for my Lancome shoot back in April. I’ve always been obsessed with statement walls, […]

DIY Glitter Coffee

It might be a good time to confess, I’m basically a three-year old. I love board games, cartoons and anything that makes me believe in magic. One non-inspiring monday morning I started wondering how to make Mondays more exciting. I had some left over edible glitter and decided to make my own sparkling coffee sweetener, […]

DIY Perfume Clutch

 The perfume clutch. An accessory that I initially thought to be too campy became an obsession. Seen above, Nicole Warne from Gary Pepper rocked the Charlotte Olympia clutch and subsequently rocked my world. The clutch retails at $1,200 and the Chanel perfume clutch retails at $9,500….prices I’m NOT willing to pay for an accessory that may or may not […]

DIY Chanel/ Pamela Love Crystal Cuff

Happy Victoria Day long weekend to all my Canadian’s out there! Here at Dream Create I like to celebrate with gifts, first the gift of sharing a DIY, and then an actual gift! Today’s DIY was inspired by the crystal cuffs pictured below, the left from Chanel, and the right from Pamela Love. Apparently both were inspired […]

DIY Starfish Cuff

If my dad has taught me anything it’s that any sort of mold is bad! Mold on food, BAD! Mold from a house leak, VERY BAD! Enter silicone mold, GOOD! I saw this picture, and somewhere deep in my soul I knew that I needed a starfish cuff, so I decided to make one myself! I started with Easy […]
