Over the last couple of years, you know, during this whole global pandemic thing, we like to think we’ve turned into pretty crafty folks, dominating the DIY’s, if you will. Not to mention seeing everybody else’s projects proudly posted on all of our feeds be it on Facebook or the infamous TikTok. While it does appear that some of us are better than others, and by ‘some of us’ we mean all of us here, and by ‘others’ we mean literally everyone else, apparently, we do still rather enjoy the challenge and to let our creative juices flow. If you’re like us, then you’ve made delicious meals, spruced up some walls with homemade art, organized the pantry, but what the clothes closet? Before you kick some pieces you haven’t touched in months to the curb (not literally, obviously we know you plan on donating them) why not try your hand at working some magic on those threads? Just trust us on this one and take a look at our list of DIY projects guaranteed to revamp your wardrobe. Let’s get started!

We are for any and all of the DIYs that give our clothes retro vibes; not only is the finished product so cute, but the project itself is super easy. First, you’ll want to rummage your closet for some denim you are convinced you no longer want, this can be a pair of jeans that you cut off to make raw edges, shorts, a denim jacket, a mini skirt, whatever you want. Next, check online or at a local thrift store to see what kind of patches you can find that match your style. More than likely, these will be iron-on patches, and all you have left to do at this point is arrange and secure them! This fun and easy project gives so much new life and color to old pieces.

For this next project, you’ll need a pair of jeans, some acrylic paint, and a whole lot of imagination. Can you guess what we’re going to tell you to do? If you guessed paint your jeans, you’re absolutely correct. Here’s the beauty of it, you don’t have to be a great artist and you don’t have to be afraid to mess up. Your design can be simple and still way cute, like painting small daisies all over your jeans or a single jean pocket, and who cares if you mess up? You didn’t really want those jeans anyway!

Call it science, but we’re convinced just about every t-shirt and hoody, especially super old ones, look significantly cooler bleach dyed. This may be a project you call up a friend or parent for because sometimes the most unexpected t-shirts look incredible after a good bleach dye job. Our personal favorite ones are retro athletic brand tees and hoodies, and you can typically find these super cheap at thrift stores if you don’t have any laying around. Old band tees are always a great option too! All you need is some bleach and a squirt bottle, and you’re ready to create some art!
