Fashion comes in many shapes and sizes, and Debbie is back to share some great “do it yourself” fashion concepts!  She loves these ideas, because you don’t have to be extremely to make them happen– anyone can do these!  Read on for four cool concepts…

1.  Party Clutch

When women go to parties, they need a little handbag to carry with them.  There are great ones available at Forever 21 or American Apparel that come in different colors.  Once you pick up a color you like, get some jewels, beads and sequins and with just a glue gun you can created a pattern on the clutch bag and have some fun!  They make a great, personal gift if you create a unique, one of a kind piece for your bestie.

2.  Bringing Back the Broach

Broaches are big right now– Michelle Obama and lots of celebrities are rocking vintage broaches on their scarves.  And there’s a way to make a little broach yourself!  All you need is a little piece of felt– cut out the shape in the size you want your broach, then use beads, sequins and materials to add a pattern or design.  Then just glue a pin closure on the back and voila!  A great DIY broach that’s totally you!

3.  Re-purposing

Going in to a thrift store, there’s lots of cool stuff you can re-purpose.  For example, find some old tea cups and pour candle wax in the middle to give away as beautiful gifts.

4.  Napkin Pillows

Look for square, white napkins at any thrift store or consignment shop.  Sew them together to make a little pillow, stuff it and sew around the edges.  Then buy some sequins or a string of sequins to spell a festive word or message.

These ideas are all easy and simple, for yourself or as gifts.  There’s more fashion inspiration ideas on Pop Sugar and also Pinterest, if you plug in “do it yourself.”  So get creative and make things personal AND fashionable for the holidays!
