For most college students, shopping consists of scouring stores for the best deals. A great way to save for the upcoming school year is to make some of the season’s most desirable pieces yourself—a do-it-yourself (DIY) project. With many store locations nationwide and an unbeatable selection of products, Michaels’ is the place to go for all your DIY needs.
Recently, a few friends and I made bracelets, head bands, and necklaces using supplies from Michaels’. The endless selection of materials ranged from metallic chains to crystal pendants to even parachute chords and the final products were just as diverse. Some of us created traditional charm bracelets or necklaces while others created headbands consisting of a linked chain intertwined with parachute chord and the best part is each piece was personalized to the individual who created it. While it may initially seem intimidating to create fashionable DIY pieces, straightforward instructions delineating the entire creative process are available through Michaels’ as well as various online sources. Our DIY projects turned out great but the greater reward was the fun that came from making them. We gathered with friends, laughed off mistakes, shared summer stories and left with our own DIY mementos of the day. The experience ignited our creativity, leaving us inspired to create other pieces.
