Debs is a master at finding old things and turning them into something new! Her DIY projects often center around upgrading Facebook marketplace finds and making beautiful yet simple homemade gifts.

When it comes to DIY, what could be better than learning how to mend things that you already have at home? Lily’s colourful feed is here to inspire you to mend your clothes with a twist and to cherish the things you own for longer.

Amber’s feed is filled with fun and easy things to do around the home that are as perfect for gifting as they are to keep around.

For those of you who love colourful and thoughtful interior design, this is a must follow. Lisbeth does small and fun DIYs around the home with everything from cute christmas tree decorations, to paper art and easter eggs. She is from Denmark, which you notice in the combination of minimalism and maximalism she favours, and although her captions are in Danish, she is well worth the follow and to just press translate on instagram to get the full gist.
