Top 3 DIY Websites That Will Inspire You

Wondering how you can get in on the DIY fun? Check out the sites below for oodles of crafty creativity and divine DIY inspiration!

The term “do it yourself” was initially coined in the 1950s. It was first used to describe home improvement projects that people could do on their own, independent of contractors or professionals. In more recent years, however, the term DIY has taken on a much broader meaning, referring to everything from the alternative, indie and punk rock music scenes to pirate radio stations and the diverse underground zine community.

Cut Out + Keep is an online community that allows users to make and share craft tutorials. From fashion (clothes, accessories and even the decoration for the dogs’ collars) to food, this site has tons of user-inspired designs and patterns (with step by step tutorials and lots of helpful pictures!) that you can try out on your own. Ever wanted to crochet yourself an iPod cozy in the shape of a cat? There’s a tutorial for that!

Natural products

DIY Natural 
presents great alternatives to the usual consumer consciousness. Offering natural (and typically equally as inexpensive) options for beauty, health, household cleaners, décor, food, and gifts. Due to the comprehensive search function, you’re sure to find an earth friendly and environmentally conscientious substitute for almost anything you can think of. For example, did you know that you can make your own effective and organic toothpaste simply by mixing together baking soda, sea salt, peppermint extract and water? Want to support the DIY efforts of others?

DIY Project

Etsy is a nerve center for the handmade hero and creative visionary. Offering an array of handmade items (including supplies!), no matter what you’re after, you’re sure to find an alternative to almost every mass-produced item you can imagine.
The resources of the Internet are enormous: there are plenty of other webpages for you to download numerous models and instructions or simply browse the creative craftiness and admire resourcefulness of others. Just do a quick Google search and unexpectedly you will open a whole new world of unusual things for yourself. Finally, be sure to check out local craft fairs and bazaars in your area, as these places are usually full of seasoned do-it-yourselfers offering handmade masterpieces.
