I love to see media focusing on the steadily-rising bevy of do-it-yourselfers and the art of DIY. From an economical standpoint as well as on a personally creative level, taking a DIY approach to fashion is hugely beneficial and inspiring. There’s no such thing as being too creative. As someone who always felt like a fish out of water in the arts-and-crafts department, DIY bloggers have introduced me to a whole new world of artistic expression and they’ve really mastered the impossible by proving to me that, yes, I can do it myself, too! And now, TODAY.com is shining their very prominent spotlight on the burgeoning craft by hosting DIY Style Week, including a search for the next DIY star. They’ve also invited a few fabulous bloggers to take part by sharing their favorite how-to’s on the site. Here’s the schedule:
- Monday: Bobbie Thomas, TODAY style editor: DIY Your Halloween
- Tuesday: Eric Domesek of PS I Made This.
- Wednesday: Geneva Vanderzeil of A Pair and A Spare.
- Thursday: Kristen Turner of Glitter ‘n Glue.
- Friday: Jenni Radosevich of I Spy DIY.
Now for the part where we all get to join in the fun: TODAY.com is inviting readers to submit their own DIYs today through Friday, where the best submission will win a spot on Today.com to showcase their creation and a prize pack from Bobbie Thomas. You can see the full list of details and enter your DIY over here. To get you inspired, here are a few DIYs from around the web that I’m excited to try in the future…
