H&M just recently released its spring Marni collection and already intrepid fashion DIYers have found inexpensive and eco-friendly ways to recreate the look.
Marni at H&M features bold prints, summer colors and DIYable accessories like plastic necklaces and sequined collars.
Marni’s plastic leaf necklace sells for $49.95. The DIY fashion blog A Matter of Style features a DIY version using a plastic orange soda bottle.
Marni’s ribbon-tied sequined collar sells for $19.95. Rachel at Transient Expression offers this eco-friendly DIY option – make your sequined collar using fabric from a thrifted sequin dress or skirt. Get a Peter Pan collar template from Lucky magazine or Transient Expression.
Marni’s white plastic flower necklace sells for $39.95. A Matter of Style shows you how to make a similar one by recycling plastic from a chewing gum container.
Each project costs no more than a few dollars to make and all can use recycled or upcycled materials.
