Top 100 DIY Trends in 2017

From Customizable Room Dividers to Homemade Hot Sauce Kits

— January 27, 2018 — Art & Design
These 2017 DIY trends range from homemade hot sauce kits to customizable room dividers. When looking at the year's most notable DIY home decor, standouts include 'Patchwork,' a modern room partition system that can be personalized to meet a user's privacy requirements. For example, users are able to customize the room dividers to not only block out certain parts of a space but can also integrate artwork or shelving into their Patchwork system.

When examining the year's top DIY food and beverage trends, notable examples include watermelon popsicle recipes and at-home Kombucha kits which promote a healthy diet while satisfying budget restrictions. Additionally, examples like Dinara Kasko's 3D-printed pastry mold help bakers create inspiring and sculptural desserts that mimic those offered at Michelin-starred eateries.

Other 2017 DIY trends to note include patch-accented backpack tutorials and versatile lipgloss kits. While Honestly WTF's backpack tutorial helps consumers recreate an of-the-moment accessory for a fraction of the price, Mixify Polish offers a lip color kit with various pigments used to create a consumer's ideal shade.

For more DIY innovations in the year ahead, check out Trend Hunter's 2018 Trend Report which helps readers dive deeper into notable and industry-spanning examples.
