Sadly, today is the last day of 12 Days of DIY, but we're going out with a bang. We called in expert Chrissie Miller, who just launched Club Chrissie, a video DIY series of her own. The show is produced by Pharell Williams, who we hadn't pegged as a lover of arts and crafts, but now we're thinking that his iced-out accessories might have been bedazzled by hand. Her special holiday episode is airing today, but first take a look at the exclusive craft project that she made for NYLON. She invented "Christmas cherries," which you'll see is the perfect way to dress up your holiday party shoes. (Since Thanksgiving gets the cranberry, we figured Christmas deserves a sweet red fruit of it's on, right?) We have a feeling you'll be seeing Christmas cherries all over town, so remember that the trend started here.
Watch Miller's latest episode here
and we can only hope that after 12 days straight of glittering, tie-dying, sewing, and studding we hope we've proven to Miller that we're worthy of a guest spot in 2013.
Here's what you'll need:
One pair of heels
Christmas pom poms
Denim thread and a needle
Pair of scissors
"Take the denim needle thread the embroidery thread. Put it though the pom pom. Tie a knot at the end and cut it about 2 inches long. Repeat this step four times."
"Take two of the strings you just made and tie them together."
"Glue the extra string where you tied the knot on the inside of the shoe (front and center)."
