Dollar Tree $7 DIY Cactus Globe Terrarium

Hey Everyone!
Well today I have an easy $7 DIY for you.
I was looking at Pinterest the other day a saw the cutest cactus plants.
Well I'm not a flower or cactus girl, I literally kill every plant I come in contact with. You can say I have a "Black Thumb", LOL!  No Seriously.

I'm either in Walmart, Target or the Dollar Tree and came across these faux cacti, well you already know my mind started churning. I picked up 3 glass vases in different sizes, 3 cacti all different and a bag of rocks. It took about 5 minutes from start to finish and the results are very dramatic and realistic. It would look nice in your bathroom, on a side table, on a shelf, just about anywhere. Dollar Tree has alot of easy, fun and cheap DIY projects that's just waiting for me to make..

Inspired Faux Leather Square Obi Belt

Hey Everyone!!! Today, I'm coming at you today with an accessory an Obi belt to be more specific. I've been obsessed with Loewe's Wide Obi Belt since I've seen it on one of my favorite Youtubers.  As some of you all already know, I love to recreate designer fashion but give a twist to it.
I love doing this at a fraction of the cost to tell the truth I actually did this for FREE..
Yes, FREE with faux black leather I purchased from Wal-Mart years ago.

I love how the belt cinches in your waist, making your silhouette even more dramatic.
Can you say Statement Piece?
It feels more like art to me, such sculpture statement to make.
