Trash to Couture

Macramé Back Bra

Open backs and side slits are all the rage, but finding the right bra to play peekaboo while lifting the girls can be a challenge, not to mention expensive. Thanks to Laura of Trash to Couture you can create your own DIY Macramé bra with a few strips from an old t-shirt, a sports bra, and a sewing machine. Wear your new, customized bra under open-back tops and dresses, or rock it for a stylish look at the beach or yoga class.

T-Shirt Dress

A basic T-shirt is a staple in every girl’s wardrobe. A tee is comfy, versatile and easily transformed into a T-shirt dress for summer. We love this flutter-hem dress created by Cathy of Trinkets in Bloom. You’ll need two identical shirts, one in your size and another two sizes bigger.

Nail-Polish–Colored Necklaces

Turn your leftover chains into brightly colored bling with a little help from your nail polish collection. Natalie of Crème de la Craft shares how to customize something new or freshen up your old jewelry.

Sequin Elbows Patches

Take your boring old sweater from drab to fab with sequin elbow patches. Gather up sequin fabric, scissors, a needle and thread, and craft paper. You’re about to have a brand-new sweater in just a few minutes. Geneva of A Pair & A Spare will show you how.

Leopard-Print Shorts

Animal print is a major trend so rev up your denim shorts with a fun animal-print design like this leopard pattern by Geri of Because I’m Addicted

Dip Dye Tee

Grab an old T-shirt—we all have plenty of them—and re-create this look with a DIY dip-dye technique. The girls behind Free People’s Blog, BLDG 25, created this kick-ass tee with a tub, measuring cup, salt, Dylon dye, gloves and a basic white tee.

Flower Heels

Stop stalking those über expensive embellished heels by high-end designers and create your own. We’re coveting this pair designed by Chantal of Cocorosa. You’d be amazed at what a shoelace and floral hair clips can do.

Embellished Sunglasses

Embellished sunglasses are perfect for basking in the summer sun. These were inspired by top designers like MarniDSquared2Anna SuiDolce & Gabbana and Roberto Cavalli. Don’t let the designer name fool you—any girl can make beautiful sunnies like these made by Sam of The Brunette One. All you need are a pair of cheap shades, a few beads and embellishments.

Cutout Dress

Cutouts are a major craze right now, but investing in the trend can put a dent in your wallet. Have no fear: Geneva is here. Check out her tutorial on A Pair & A Spare to make a cutout dress worthy of the red carpet.

Lace-Hemmed Shorts

Bored with your denim cutoffs for summer? Go from ordinary to extraordinary with a little bit of lace. Not good at sewing? No worries. Aimee of SwellMayde shows you that it takes only a little bit of fabric glue to reinvent your denim duds.

Embellished Lace Skirt

We love how Erica of P.S. I Made This can re-create runway looks for so much less. Check out this embellished lace skirt inspired by high-end designer Erdem. You’ll be pleasantly shocked to see how easy it is to create your own look with the help of scissors and a few pins.

Nameplate Wallet

Personalizing anything is just plain cool. But if your name is unique or spelled nontraditionally, it’s nearly impossible to participate in the trend. That’s where a little DIY help from Jenni of I Spy DIY comes in handy. Check out this nameplate wallet she created. Who knew metal house letters could look so chic?

Hair Combs

Hair accessories are hip right now, and you can stay on budget by making your own. We love little details like these hair combs designed by Meagan of Love Meagan. Adorn yourself in whatever trims, beads and embellishments you’d like.
