Jacket DIY Ideas – Five Amazing Tutorials to Try
My favorite fashion piece for fall isn’t flannels – it’s my jackets. Every person has that item that they cannot get enough of – for me, it is my outwear collection. On my overflowing garment rack hangs treasured investment pieces, thrifted treasures and jackets I have up-cycled from vintage stores. By DIY-ing flair to your outerwear, you are adding a pop of personality, whimsy and style to something that might otherwise hang forgotten.
Over the seasons, I have been inspired to DIY my jackets in a variety of ways. From Cricut vinyl to bedazzling, this list has a creative jacket DIY ideas for any style !
Golden Beetle Jacket from a Vintage Peacoat
I salvaged this vintage peacoat by adding custom cut outs of vintage beetles in a variety of autumnal, metallic tones.
Fringe Leather Jacket
I found this suede black leather jacket in the aisles of the thrift store and knew it needed a little pop of personality to complete its look. I added leather trim to accent the cut and add a little more movement.
Lobster Stencil Elbow Patch
DIY Jacket Idea
Create a cool focal point on a blazer by adding elbow patches. I used stencils and paint to create the preppy look on this striped blazer.
Bedazzled Lapel Peacoat
This was one of my favorite up-cycles (and first)! By adding a little jewel to the lapel, you have a gorgeous piece with personality and a lot of sparkle.
Stenciling DIY Jacket Ideas
Create your own cool, retro piece by using a stencil on the back of your jacket. I sell custom stencils here.

Shame on you Susan for your unkind words! Haters are going to hate I guess- but happily most of us are more gracious to each other, especially in these crazy times.
