DIY Trends: Eco-chic

Eco-chic brings nature into crafting with wood grain, natural fibers, rope, paper and cork. Key green/eco craft elements include raw, unfinished wood with an emphasis on the grain and affordable burlap on everything from pillows to spooled ribbon. Nature is imitated with paper-crafted flowers in tissue, recycled newsprint and scrapbooking papers that seem as fresh and new as the real thing.

DIY Trends: Personalization

Personalization continues strong, with initials and monograms showing up on all kinds of projects. Everyday objects like cell phone cases and shoes become one of a kind with any type of bling or embellishment imaginable.

DIY Trends: Vintage

This vintage craft trend harkens back to childhood and invokes images of grandma’s house, but interprets them in fresh, new ways using dramatic scale, different colors and unusual applications. Key elements include jumbo pom-poms; chalkboard paint and paper; doilies that are dip-dyed and molded into interesting shapes; lace in many forms and materials; and laser-cut frames for art and home décor. Mason jars come out of the pantry and become colorful, fun lanterns, drinking glasses and vases; and vintage book pages and newsprint are re-imagined in banners, paper flowers and home décor surfaces.
