DIY Embellished Tank Top

So in Wednesday's post, one of my Spring must have's was an embellished tank, which I claimed was "totally easy to DIY!" Well I got to thinking about that statement, and decided to find out if it was as simple as I thought. Here's my result:

I used an old Target tank top, beads from a costume jewelry pearl necklace, and some scrap muslin to make the flowers. I finished the whole thing while the baby was eating her lunch, so not too shabby! I had so much fun, I decided to make another one:

This time I used a piece of the necklace and made rosettes out of some scrap white fabric. (I was inspired by this Charlotte Russe necklace). I'm thinking of wearing it on Valentine's Day with a cardigan. Yea or nay?
So...what do you out there in blogland think? Did I capture the trend, or am I just wearing scraps sewn on a ratty old tank top? (Which is kind of how I felt when I took these pictures...)

***Stay tuned next week, when I detail another amazing trip to the American Cancer Society Discovery Shop. Seriously, if you live in my town, you should go there asap!***

Those are super cute!! I originally thought those were pictures you got from like J.Crew or some fancy place before I realized that it was actually your finished work!
