We all love accessories – who doesn’t? What we don’t love is always paying retail prices for items we can make ourselves. DIY Accessories are a great way to release some creative energy while creating something you can wear proudly.
Just think! When someone asks, “Where did you get that gorgeous necklace?”, you can gleefully answer, “I made it.”
We’ve scoured the Internet to bring you five awesome DIY accessories to put your inner creative genius to work. So, without further ado…
1. Leather Wrapped Bracelets
