You don’t have to spend a fortune to have fashion looks that you’ll look and feel great in. Check out this guide to 5 fun DIY fashion hacks to give a try!
Feeling sick and tired of the clothes currently in your closet but running short on cash to buy a brand new wardrobe?
Maybe you have a fun event coming up where you want to portray your fun personality. Perhaps you have a blind-date only days away and you have no idea what to wear.
DIY fashion can be a great hobby, so if you want to feel better about how you look and have some fun while doing it, these simple DIY fashion hacks can help you freshen up your clothing options in no time:
Bleach Paint Pens
Such a simple, inexpensive little tool can help you create a personalized top with a favorite saying, quote or nickname.
Bleach paint pens can be used on shirts, leggings, scarves, socks, canvas shoes and more. Kids can join in the fun by drawing shapes or pictures on an old t-shirt.
Make your canvas sneakers your own by adding some studs around the base with the help of some E6000 glue and a little creativity.
This DIY fashion hack doesn’t take much time and you can experiment with studs in a variety of finishes from gunmetal gray to gold. You can use this hack to express your personality, an approach the folks at Elfann promote.
Trimming With Tassels
Take any plain t-shirt, skirt or dress and add a little tassel trim to take it up a notch.
Tassel and fringe comes in a wide variety of colors and textures and can either be sewn at the hem or even hot-glued on (for those of us who aren’t handy with a needle and thread!)
Tassel trim can also be added to the bottom of a large summer tote, to the ankle strap of your sandals, or around the collar of a t-shirt.
Update a tired old sweatshirt with a flashy sequin word or pattern in any color you choose. All you need is some pretty sequin trim and fabric glue and you’re minutes away from the perfect DIY fashion favorite.
Practice laying down your trim in the center of the shirt first to make sure it looks right before you add any glue.
Make a stand-out denim jacket with the help of easy-to-use iron-on patches for adults. Add just one or iron-on several for extra impact.
Iron-on patches can be added to canvas bags, denim jeans, t shirts and more. Some patches are extra large and can cover the entire back of a shirt or jacket, or you can choose to add dozens of smaller patches to the pockets, sleeves or chest of an otherwise tired top.
Iron-on patches can also be a lot of fun for little kids who want to create clothing pieces of their own as they pick patches of their favorite superheroes, animals or shapes.
