Dye a scarf or bandana: This is a fun and colorful way to add a pop of personality to your outfit. You can use tie-dye, dip-dye, or even shibori techniques to create unique patterns.

Embellish a pair of jeans: Ripped jeans are still in style, so why not DIY your own? You can rip them yourself or use a seam ripper to create a more controlled look. Once you have your rips, you can add patches, embroidery, or even paint to make them your own.

Embellish a pair of shoes: Add some sparkle to your shoes with rhinestones, studs, or even paint. You can also personalize them with fabric markers or patches.

For intermediate crafters

Refashion an old garment: Give new life to an old piece of clothing by turning it into something new. For example, you could turn a dress into a skirt, a shirt into a bag, or pants into shorts.

Sew a simple skirt or top: If you know your way around a sewing machine, you can easily make your own clothes from scratch. Start with a simple pattern and gradually work your way up to more challenging projects.

Dye your hair: This is a great way to change up your look without spending a lot of money. There are many different hair dye kits available, so you can find one that’s right for you.
