10 Fashion DIYs to Try

Get crafty with these fun tutorials for creating stylish pieces! By Patricia Dayacap

article_fashion-diys.jpgBack in high school, art class was my least favorite subject (aside from math, of course). No matter how much I tried, I just couldn't get my projects to come out looking worthy of an A. Mine usually fell flat, especially when placed next to my friends' impressive works. The fact that I wasn't exactly patient probably didn't helpI was always so bent on seeing the finished product that I would get really annoyed if the process took longer than I thought.

Art class, thankfully, is behind me now. Strangely enough, though, I've been finding myself itching to get crafty once more. I read a lot of fashion blogs, and one kind of entry that's cropping up every now and thento much praise from the readersis the DIY post. While I used to just be a mere observer when it comes to blog entries like these, I've slowly warmed up to the idea of actually trying them out to create something that I could easily find in stores. Truth be told, in the few times I get to look around at the shops, there's always this niggling thought at the back of my head that goes, "Madali lang i-DIY yan."

And the thing is, that little voice is actually right! Love those glitter-heeled boots that's on the feet of almost every blogger? You can easily DIY your own. Want a festive skirt to wear this holiday season? Try a sparkly, pleated one. DIY projects are a creative and fun way to nab the look for less because, let's face it, we don't all have the spending power of an Olsen twin.

Browse through the gallery for 10 oh-so-chic DIYs to try.
