Bring old-fashioned arts back into your urban lifestyle. Getting your hands dirty has never been more fun!

Remember the time your grandmother made your birthday dress from scratch? Makeovers, the home and fashion kind, have again become the ‘it’ thing to do. People are bringing out their knitting needles and dusting off their tools. Not only are you adding your personality to the objects you use, but you are doing your planet a great service, too, by recycling what already exists. Sales on your mind? Buy basic and classic products at a steal that you can modify for the next season. We asked a bunch of creative professionals to help us with fun DIY ideas that we road-tested for you.

Wild wild vest bag

By Anuj Sharma, designer

You will need

A tank top, poker chips/ buttons, rubber bands

How to

1.    Place a chip at the edge of the tank top’s hem.

2.    Wrap the chip with the top and secure with a rubber band.

3.    Repeat the wrap-and-tie process until you reach the other edge of the hem. The rubber bands and the chips seal the hem completely, making it safe to use as a bag! Pick tank tops in colours and prints; grocery shopping gets a recycled, kooky twist!

Baroque Necklace

By Rixi Bhatia, partner, Attic

You will need

A pearl necklace, broken bits of old jewellery, decorative buttons, velvet ribbon, thin gold wire, pliers and glue

How to

1.    Find matching pieces of discarded jewellery and buttons. String them on to bits of wire to attach to the necklace.

2.    For those bits that the wire cannot pass through, use a strong glue to place them wherever you like on the necklace.

3.    Make bows out of the ribbon and tie them to the necklace. Your ornate necklace is ready, laden with personality and old-world charm.

Galaxy Print Tee

By Nikhil D, Marie Claire staffer

You will need

White T-shirt, colour fast dyes, dye fixer, bleaching powder, white paint, a bucket, rubber bands

How to

  1. Pour your preferred dye colour and the dye fixer into a bucket of hot water.
  2. Pick random parts of the T shirt and tie rubber bands on the area, then dip the T-shirt into the bucket. (You can use your creativity to place different parts of the T-shirt in different colour dyes).
  3. After 30 mins of keeping it dipped in the dye, take out the T-shirt from the bucket and place it flat on the ground. Using a brush, splatter the bleaching powder all over the T-shirt. Use another brush to scatter drops of white paint. (You can use a thin brush to turn a drop of white paint into a tiny star, every now and then.)
  4. The T-shirt is ready once you dry it off; wash once more to make sure the dye holds and the excess bleach is removed. Here’s your ‘starry-night’ tee!
