Fringed: DIY Fringe Skirt
Fringed!!!! This project is actually a throwback… will the internets allow for a #ThrowbackTuesday?!? Anywho, three years ago when Beyonce told us who was running the world (girls!) I was inspired to create my own version of the mini fringe skirt she wore in the video (here). Well that was three years ago and to be honest “mini fringe” doesn’t work for me anymore. I’m really crushing on fringe and wanted to recreate this skirt for my Summer wardrobe in a more age appropriate length. Fringe skirts for the grown and sexy, y’all!
Obviously I would recommend wearing a skirt underneath when you’re wearing this fabulous lady out in public, but you know I had to give y’all the full effect for these photos.
Use your glue gun apply a healthy amount of glue to the inside of your belt. Apply a layer of fringe to the glue and let it dry. Once it’s dry, apply more glue and another layer of fringe for a fuller skirt.

NOTE: If you’re having a difficult time locating long fringe, try calling my local fabric store directly. International Silk + Woolens (323)653-6453. Ask for Nabilla or anyone in the notions department. They’ll ship it directly to you if you live in the USA. I purchased 2 years of the 24 inch black fringe to complete this project. Enjoy! xo
