Editor at Large Jodi Levine lists these simple, versatile dishes as one of her favorite projects this year. "We don't really think in terms of trends, but the label 'granny chic' kept coming up," she says.
Our crafts department upcycled last year's clothing and accessories to make them new again. "It's fun to upcycle something you might have loved last year, but seems tired this year -- especially with such little effort and supplies," says Silke. One of her favorites was the cardigan update.
Silke also added beads to bags for an upscale look -- without the upscale price tag. Silke encourages crafters to take the sparkle as far as they'd like: "Since it's so inexpensive to make, get inspired and go a little more out there than you would if you had to pay for it from a designer's collection."
