Getting crafty

DIY beats store-bought any day.

Getting crafty

Why buy it when you can make it? Not only do you save a lot of money by making your own stuff, it’s also a great creative outlet. Plus it’s so much better to create something new. It’s easy to get started:

Inspiration is everywhere
With the internet, you can get ideas without leaving your home. Search for DIY ideas on Youtube or go to instagram and look for #craft and #DIY to see cool ideas. Is your bestie’s birthday coming up soon? Give her your signature handmade hair accessories or jewellery. She will be way happier because it comes from your heart and it’s one-of-a-kind, like your friendship.

Use what you have
Making stuff doesn’t necessarily have to mean using new materials. Get creative and re use things you already have around the house, like turning an old shirt into a neat new bag. Find the instructions here.

Get organised
Collect scraps of material, buttons, ribbons, rope and badges, and organise them in a container of box. You’ll have material to use when inspiration strikes.

See how easy it is? Anyone can do it. There are no rules for DIY. Just jump in and start making things. Plus it’s even more fun when you do it with friends friends, so why not throw a fun craft party?
