You don't need to be a designer or shoemaker to get create your own fashion. DIY fashion is increasing in popularity and it's addictive. Bloggers Shini Park and Kit Lee have recently also published a book titled Adorn: 25 stylish DIY fashion projects.
I've been spending hours on some amazing sites and have discovered some great DIY fashion tutorials. While I doubt I'll be giving DIY a go anytime soon (thanks to my inability to use glue without ruining everything around me), I thought it would be great to share some of these with our readers.
My first piece in this series is off course DIY shoes. It doesn't matter whether your shoes are out of fashion or looking a tad bit worn. There are ways that you can re-add the sparkle to them. Here are a list of ways that you can jazz them up again:
Add some gold studs to your favourite sneakers that look that they have been around the world but still feels like it is comfortable enough to help you take over the world. Take a look at A Beautiful Mess - Make your own studded Converse.
Add an edgy and chic flair to black heels. Dare to DIY have created a video tutorial with details on how to create this.
If your camel colour suede boots has seen better days, why not add some glitter to add some glam? Check out BellaMumma's guide on how to create these glitter boots.
