3 DIYs, 1 Post

Me, A, and M went to JoAnn Fabrics and each bought
1 yard of sequin trim in our favorite color. Then
we went back to my house and measured our heads w/
the trim, cut the trim to fit, and hand-sewed the
two ends together.

Later that week, A and I went to Target to buy cheap
t-shirts (my yellow shirt was on sale for $1). Then we
went to Michael's to buy paint (no need to buy fabric
paint, which is about 5 times the cost of regular paint,
because regular paint stains the t-shirt anyways and won't
come off). Then we went back to my house, laid newspaper
on the grass in my backyard, & splattered the paint
w/ 3-inch paintbrushes.

On my own, over the course of a few days, I decoupaged
an old photo box. This is the cheapest DIY ever, because
it's totally free! All you need: an old box (any size or
shape, but preferably w/ all flat surfaces), magazines,
scissors, Mod-Podge, and foam brushes. I cut anything that
appealed to me out of about 6 magazines & decoupaged the
cut-outs to the box w/ the foam brush & Mod-Podge.
