Our bloggers rounded up new and exciting DIY hacks that you can tackle in the comfort of your home. More importantly, these hacks are budget-friendly and can help you achieve your fashion designer dream! Keep reading to learn about our favorite DIY hacks for summer 2020.
Cute & Comfy DIY Shorts
Every girl needs a good pair of shorts since they are a summer wardrobe staple. We are all about saving money and recycling our clothes this year, so why not just make them yourself? Shorts are one of our easiest DIY hacks, and they only take a few minutes to complete. Start by finding an old pair of jeans in your closet and mark them up with a pencil to your desired short length. Next, take some fabric scissors and cut both pant legs on the pencil marks and voila! Yes, it’s that simple!
This DIY hack works great with sweatpants too if you want to make loungewear sweat shorts. Making your own shorts helps you save your coins but also adds a unique flair to your style.
Colorful DIY Tie-Dye
Tie-dye clothing has become our new obsession for the summer. Sometimes, tie-dye items can be a little pricy when you buy them in stores; so instead, we make ours at home! Target has an endless amount of tie-dye colors to choose from like red, blue, yellow, tan, brown, black, and more, and they only cost $2.99 per bottle! Consider tie-dyeing a sweatshirt, t-shirt, tank top, shorts, socks, and even jeans for a creative style that nobody else will have.
First, take the clothing item you’re dyeing and scrunch up the fabric to get your desired design. Secure the fabric with rubber bands and go to town with your favorite colors! Next, wait until it dries, throw it in the wash, and you have yourself a brand-new clothing item. DIY tie-dye is an awesome way to explore your hidden creativity because you get to personalize the item to your liking, and it keeps you busy while being at home.
DIY Painted Sneakers
Custom sneakers retail for $200.00 or more depending on the pair you like. This DIY hack will be your money-saving secret to the cutest shoes! Some of us took creativity to the next level with our DIY projects, but whoever started painting their sneakers is an absolute genius! We love our plain white sneakers, but it might be time for a makeover. Painting sneakers have been a trend since the beginning of summer, and it’s a fun activity you can enjoy during your spare time.
Take your favorite colored paint and make patterns like polka dots, zebra print, or even your favorite designer logo. If you want to use your artistic skills, you can paint flowers, butterflies, ocean waves, flames, and so much more. This DIY hack is all about personalization and seeing what you can make with paint and a brush. Painting an old pair of sneakers gives you and other fashionistas a creative way to craft some new shoes.
