80 High Fashion DIYs

These DIY Craft Projects are Chic and Budget-Friendly

— December 19, 2014 — Art & Design
These DIY craft projects are inspired by the world of high fashion and range from re-purposed statement clutches to runway-resembling stiletto heels. High fashion can often be pricey and unattainable for most but these budget-friendly styles ensure that one looks chic without breaking the bank.

Fans of DIY craft projects will enjoy these fashion-forward clothing and accessory ideas that are easy and inexpensive to make. When it comes to clothing, DIY shirt dresses, zippered sweaters and studded blouse garments are all styles one can recreate for a fraction of the price.

On the accessory front, statement clutches and jewelry pieces are no longer an investment piece and are being recreated using household materials and recycled fabric swatches. If you're a fan of creative crafts, give one of these high fashion DIYs a try.
