Top 50 DIY Trends in July

From Confectionery Cacti Crafts to Handmade Cup Cozies

— July 25, 2015 — Lifestyle
DIY culture is somewhat unique in that it can be seen converging with innovations in almost any other realm. Whether to get a runway look for less by creating your own necklace or to make your cocktail truly handmade by making your own bitters, there are seemingly endless applications of maker culture that may involve technology or may not.

As upcycling continues to permeate a youth culture once defined by its assumed opulence, many individuals and organizations are adhering to a lifestyle that is easier on the environment and encouraging others to do so.

Whether you are looking to make your own dog treats or hoping to kickstart your kitchen-grown mushroom garden, there is always someone on the Internet who has done it first and can likely offer guidance.
