It seems the United States has been hit with ALL the snow and ALL the cold. You might be back to work today, but if you’re still bundled up inside avoiding the insane windchill, I bet you’re getting a little bored of your Netflix queue right about now. If that’s the case, I suggest getting crafty. These 10 easy DIY projects will update your wardrobe without taking too much time or effort. Plus, you’ll get the bragging rights of saying “I made this!” once you can finally wear your awesome creation out of the damn house.

1. Lace Shorts via Sincerely Kinsey

OK, you’re probably not going to wear these for at least a few months (unless you live in Key West), but there’s nothing wrong with looking towards spring!

2. DIY Elbow Patch via Honestly WTF

This tutorial is for a felted patch, but you could easily just cut a shape out of fabric and sew it on to a shirt!

3. One Minute DIY Boot Socks via Endlessly Inspired

5. Bandana Back Shirt via A Beautiful Mess

    I am so bad at DIYing stuff, but THOSE BOOTS. Ahh! I actually have a pair like that I would love to glitterize if I didn’t already like the color…

      The DIY boot socks are so great. I never would’ve thought of those!

    I love the heart on the sleeve…and that sweatshirt back is awesome.

    I’m really feeling #6, although I might wear it backwards.

    I wanted to look up the boot tutorial but I clicked on the link and it took me to shirt weaving? :/ Am I missing something?

    I just learned to sew and got a sewing machine, so you pretty much just made my life that much more awesome.
