If recession hit you hard it's time to be creative and save some money. It's quite easy to make your own unique accessories or even clothes, although it make take you a lot of patience and some time.
I just finished my first project; first if I skip all the clothes I made to my dolls during childhood, because hey I was my doll's designer :)This is what came out...
Money spend on doing it: zero. Surprising huh? I made the flowers from an old top, used a simple necklace that I have and made quite a statement accessory.
I'm also working at another diy project here's a sneak peak. It might take me a while but you'll be the first to see it as soon as I finish it.
