17 DIY Tween Fashions

From DIY Stylish Scarf Watches to Notebook-Inspired Manicures

— July 17, 2013 — Life-Stages
The transition from childhood to adolescence can be difficult, but DIY tween fashions help ease the change by letting burgeoning teens stay fashionable on the cheap. With a rapid physiological and emotional development occurring during tween years, finding a comfortable identity is often a challenge. DIY fashions allow tweens to express themselves in a fun and non-committal manner. Since these projects are infinitely customization, tweens are able to explore and manage their dramatic launch into adolescence.

Chic projects such as DIY superheroine tights and 80s diva stockings can be done with little effort even though they have a big impact. Other DIY styles like notebook-inspired manicures and time-measuring wrist candy allow for self-expression on a smaller scale.
