Welcome to DIY 'N Fashion!

If you're an art lover- or maybe a fashion obsessionist, you've come at the right place! I personally LOVE fashion!!! I think fashion is not just in your taste of clothing but, your room aswell! It is like art, it has patterns and really defined designes that covers up the fabric! It can change almost anything boring to look fabulicious!

3D Flower Picture Frame

How to make a 3D Flower Picture Frame using a paper cup?

A 3D Flower Picture Frame is a really cool and a beautiful wall decor for your wall! You can create this easily with just a few simple steps!

*Paper cup
*Index cards-1
*Paper flowers
*Paper (White/Blank)
*Paint brush
*Paint-you'll need Blue, White, Brown, Yellow, Green and Red
*Black gel pen
*Super Glue (Or glue gun)

-Cut out the top of the paper cup- the part where you drink from.
-Glue the ends together-make sure you don't put access glue since the paper cup will melt. Wait till it's dried completely.
-Next, adjust the index card  from behind correctly so it fits in. This will be the tricky part, you'll have to glue this on.
-On a blank piece of paper, trace the circle once. Using the tool to draw circles, adjust the length from the point to the pencil which touches inside the frame (the blue part inside on my picture) and draw the circle of the length you measured on the blank paper.
-Now glue this inside the frame.
-It's time to paint! I recommend you start to paint the borders first. Don't paint the back.
-Once you've painted this three times, paint the inside. Then paint a scene!
-Glue paper flowers and you can also make a gorgeous sign too!
Here's a list of things you can put:
*Paper butterflies
*Draw birds and clouds!

Funky Picture Frame

How to make a Funky Picture Frame out of foam paper?

A Funky Frame Picture Frame can make your room look fashionable and crazy-fun! At the same time it's cheap and affordable for anyone!

*Foam paper
*1 Index card
*Colourful pompoms
*Super Glue (or glue gun)

Instructions for Back part:
-Cut out a rectangle-this will be the back part of your frame! It has to be 6cm x 8.2cm.
-Now, cut out the Index card-the size is the same as the rectangle. Glue this on-this is where you'll be gluing the pompoms. (but, first you need to cut out the frame strips).
-On the index card start from each corners and mark with a dot-they should be 1cm. Then connect them and that should form a smaller rectangle.

Instructions for Frame parts:
-Cut out two 1cm wide and 8.2cm long strip of foam paper, and two 1cm wide and 6cm long strip of foam paper.
-Now, from the corner where you created a line which connected the smaller rectangle corner, press the strip firmly to create a print behind it.
-Lift it off and trace the invisible line. Cut out the triangle you've traced from top and bottom and use this frame strip for the opposite side. Do the same for the rest.
-Now, glue down your frame strips with super glue. Make sure to press firmly and don't let the glue touch your skin.
-Next, glue down the pompoms anyway you wish, choose any size. (I used small pompoms and had them in one colour in each row.)
-Almost done! Decorate your frame strip with nice stickers!

Decorated Quote

How to make a Decorated Quote out of an old binder?

A Decorated Quote is a fine way to express anything you like or maybe enjoy. This is a art work which can be placed in your room anywhere you desire.

*Old Binder
*Paint brush
*Paint-any colour
*Decorative stickers
*Pen-Coloured (glittery-if you wish)
*Black gel pen

-Using scissors cut out the binder's covers. Then remove the part where papers go. This might be a little painful so make sure you be careful.
-Once that's removed, cut the long cardboard piece into 16.8cm long and it's already 3.3cm wide. I recommend you start cutting from the bottom.
-Paint only one side of the cardboard and, make sure you paint the sides as well. Paint it twice more for it to look better.
-With the black gel pen draw a border line. It should be 0.4cm wide.
-Next, write one of your favourite quote you really like or just make up your own quote! You can write this in a special font, ex: Graffiti, Cursive writing, All caps...(etc...)
-Now for the final touches decorate this with decorative stickers!
Have fun decorating your Decorated Quote!

Splash Art Picture Frame

How to make a Splash Art Picture Frame?

A Splash Art Picture Frame creates a beautiful creative messy art which looks great on a plain white wall! Make this in just a few minutes! All you need is some paint brushes and splash your way!

*Paper- any size is perfect (or a index card like I used)
*Paint brush
*Paint- any colour...(I used Blue, Red, Yellow, Pink, Purple)

-Cut out the amount of space you'll be using from your paper by tracing a line with your pen using your ruler. (If you are going to be using an index card then make sure you've cut it nicely.)
-In a paint palette pour the right amount of paint needed in separate sections.
-Dip your paint brush so that the tip is only with paint.
-With quick motion spread the paint by slapping down your paint brush. Don't sweep your brush.
