Top 100 DIY Trends in 2014

DIY Geometric Paper Masks to DIY Dry Shampoos

— January 11, 2015 — Art & Design
Like last year, fashion and home decor are two industries that are heavily referenced in this collection of top 2014 DIY trends. There are many reasons why this is the case. Not only are they the most convenient areas to focus on, they are also very subjective. Personal taste often plays a huge factor in "do it yourself" projects, which makes fashion and home decor top contenders for 2014 DIY trends.

Yet since the economy has become more stable over the months, the top 2014 DIY trends involve many passion projects that bring a sense of individuality to people's lives. By tweaking clothing designs, furniture pieces and other items themselves, people are able to lay claim to such creations in a way that signals accomplishment and skill.

The top 2014 DIY trends show not only how much people are interested in individuality, but ownership as well. To delve deeper into this topic, check out Trend Hunter's DIY Trend Report.
