Today I'm sharing with you a great, inexpensive way to spice up a boring tank top.
One of my all time favorite bloggers has shared this genius idea with the world. Erica Domesek is the author of the P.S. I Made This blog, as well as the P.S. I Made This book. GB's wonderful sister KC gifted me with her book over Christmas and I've been so inspired to try many of her inspirations.
I decided to give Erica's Safety Pin Tank a try. Check out her wonderful idea!
I bought a cheap tank from Target and some gold safety pins from Joanns (my favorite store.)
Check out that clearance tag!
I used the large pins and clustered the smaller pins. I will add that I spent a good 15 minutes on hands and knees searching for a lost pin. So if you give this project a try - DON'T DROP YOUR PINS. I never found that little guy...
WARNING: It really hurts when you stab your finger with one of those big daddy safety pins.
When I completed combining and clustering the pins I attached the pins to the tank.
I then began attaching the pin clusters to one another.
When I was finished I held the top up and adjusted some of the placement of the pins.
All done! I really think it looks edgy and cool.
Then I tried it on. The placement was all wrong! I should have placed the pins at least 2 inches higher.
Safety Pin boobies is not where it's at.
Good thing safety pins are removable.
I love this look - but when I'm ready to rock this look - I'll be sure to put on the tank - then adjust the pins.
