One of my favorite things about New York City is the abundance of street vendors and flea markets. Not only are they awesome to find unique pieces, but they also inspire creativity and motivation to create my own DIYs.

If only I had unlimited hours to sit around and craft, create, sew, etc… Here are a few things I’ve been wanting to try lately, but just need an extra day off (or two).
I found this picture of these shorts on tumblr and think they’d be really easy to DIY. I’m sure you could either sew the jewels on or just get some fabric glue and apply each one. I like how these are done with different tones on a pair of white shorts and how the waistband was left plain. I just need to find a good pair of white shorts, then I can get to bejeweling!
This bracelet DIY is on Pinterest and the step-by-step pictures make it look pretty simple, just time consuming. I want to make this bracelet in every color imaginable though. They’d be great for layering or just wearing on their own to keep it simple.
I found this DIY through Stumble Upon at anniespandex.com a long time ago and never got around to it. These no-sew tanks are perfect for summer and the possibilities are pretty much endless. Definitely want to try this on my next day off!
I love DIYs and am always looking for more to try. Are there any DIYs you’ve done that you recommend?
What you’ll need:
1.) A lace fabric (I used an old, lacy hand me down blouse)
2.) Pair of old denim jeans
3.) Razor knife or box cutter
( pins/chalk to mark and hold down the fabric in place )
Start off by cutting your old jeans into a new pair of shorts (see Easy Boyfriend Short DIY here)
If you’re like me, at one point or another, your jeans will eventually rip in the inner thigh. It doesn’t matter how expensive my jeans are, they will always do this. So when this recently happened to yet another pair of my favorite jeans, I decided to try something new and turn what was left into a wearable pair of shorts. (This DIY can also be done with a pair of jeans that haven’t ripped).
