DIY Faux Fur Wine Collar

Faux Mink Wine Collar 4 Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend.  I was surprisingly productive despite my family being under the weather.  I was flipping through holiday catalogs over the weekend, and was inspired by this cute faux mink wine collar from Grandinroad. I thought it would make a fun bar cart accessory or hostess gift.  However, at $19.00 I could live without it. Mink Wine Collar I started to think about purchasing some faux mink fabric to do a knockoff, but it was upwards of $20 per yard everywhere I looked.  That is when I realized I had this old toddler coat my girls had outgrown (sorry for the lame iphone pic.) Perfect, right?  I also ended up using the rest of the coat as a tree skirt on a mini tree I am decorating for Christmas.  Stay tuned!! photo I used a seam ripper to detach the collar and then just pinned it and sewed a few stitches with my sewing machine to close up the frayed edges.  I also had an old brooch my grandmother had given me a few years back.  I think it adds just the right amount of sparkle and has special meaning to me. This is how it turned out.  Not bad for free!! Faux Mink Wine Collar 2 . If you are not in a DIY mood you can get a very affordable version at World Market for only $6.99.  It even comes with a hat topper! *_478067_WINE_BOTTLE_FUR_HAT-SHAWL Did you tackle any fun projects this weekend?  Stay tuned in the following weeks as  I have a ton of easy holiday DIY’s coming your way.  In the meantime, you can check out my DIY faux fur tree skirt from last year!
