The top DIY trends this year were more creative and unique than ever before, making a strong case for avoiding store-bought goods.

DIY projects ranged all the way from Christmas decorations to back-to-school nails, proving that there's a DIY trend for every occasion. On the nail front, more brands seemed to accommodate consumers who wanted to be more creative, and sold sets of products that made doing so as easy as possible. In terms of special occasion projects, some of the most creative food recipes debuted.

Personalization and customization are an increasingly important part of the consumer experience, and DIY projects put this aspect in the hands of the consumers. Check out Trend Hunter's DIY Trend Report for a more in-depth look at the trends upcoming.
