Sure purchasing a new bauble is fun and all, but MAKING one with your own hands is way more satisfying. Same goes for experimenting with funky at-home manicures. For this week’s links we compiled a list of totally doable – and practical – DIY projects including a step-by-step tutorial on sprucing up your rusty old bike with a fresh paint job, three inspired manicures (we REALLY love nail art) and a few rad home-made accessory ideas. Check out our list and let us know if you try your hand at any of these projects over the weekend (we’re psyching ourselves up to attempt the Comme des Garcons inspired manicure). Happy crafting!
