12 DIYs That Will Take Your Festival Wardrobe to the Next Level

If you haven’t noticed, festival season is upon us and whether you already caught Riri’s surprise performance at Coachella last year or are planning a road trip to Electric Forest this summer, you're likely going to be spending a lot more on outrageous ticket prices than you are on your outfit. These 12 festival wear DIYs are perfect for every budget-conscious festival (and fashion) lover.

1. Flower Crown

Flower crowns will not be going out of style any time soon. So instead of dishing out the cash for a premade version, why not make your own? 

2. Beaded Tassel Necklace

Tassels never looked so good! Check out this tutorial, and you'll have a personalized beaded tassel necklace in no time!

3. Tie Dye and Beaded Fringe Shirts

 

Nothing screams festival like tie-dye and fringe. But leave your ordinary tie-dye shirt at home in favor of this upgraded take on the classic style.

4. Rope Necklace

Who would have thought rope could make a fashion statement? Trust us, you'll be turning heads with this fab accessory!

5. No-Sew Placemat Clutch

This clutch is so easy to make and a complete showstopper—the total package! 

6. Kimono

You shouldn't have to break the bank in order to stay on top of the latest trends. With three materials and three simple steps, Anna Liesemeyer from Verily Mag shows you just how easy it is to make your own kimono. 

7. Embellished Sunglasses

You can buy embellished sunnies pretty much anywhere, but where's the fun in that? 

8. Studded Sneakers

Because no one should be walking around a fashion forward festival with anything less than stellar footwear. Give your everyday sneakers a makeover before you head out. 

9. Macramé Bra

The greatest (not to mention super cute) solution for those open back blouses is an adorable macramé bra. This is one we'll be wearing long past festival season.

10. Braided Cuff

With the weather getting warmer and the sleeves getting shorter, your exposed wrists are in desperate need of some sleek jewelry.

11. Jeweled Sandals

Just like your sneakers, you'll want to give your plain, old sandals an upgrade. 

12. Gradient Blue Shorts

Mastering the art of bleaching cutoffs takes time, but no festival outfit is complete without a pair of gradient blue shorts.
