Creative Ideas to Inspire Your Next DIY Project

  • 25 Jun 2024

Personalising your belongings is a great way to express yourself and stand out from the crowd. Whether you’re looking to refashion your wardrobe, create a unique piece of jewellery or customise items for the little ones, here are some fun and creative ideas to inspire your next DIY project.

Add Some Flair with Patches

Easy to apply, iron-on patches are a fantastic way to jazz up everyday items. They can turn a plain jacket, backpack, or hat into a personalised statement piece. Find the coolest iron-on embroidery patches at Target.

Make Your Own Jewellery

Whether it’s for a birthday or a special milestone, creating a custom jewellery makes any occasion even more memorable. Design your own bracelets with a variety of charms and beads with kits from Lovisa.

Tie Dye

Turn your basic cotton tees and accessories into a one-of-a-kind piece by giving them the dip dye treatment. Most kits come with all materials, just let your creativity flow. Find tie dye kits at Kmart and Target.

Customising for Kids

Creating something unique can be a fun project for kids to do at home. Refashion a t-shirt they already have with stencils and fabric markers from Big W, or find funky shoes accessories at Platypus.
