In our opinion, there are some things that simply must come from the store (ahem, fall-season FENDI handbag), but when it comes to accessories, we’re quickly becoming fans of the homemade variety. We’ve all seen our fair share of DIY projects gone wrong, so in lieu of trial and error, we’ve weeded through some of our favorite bloggers and hand-picked the sweetest of the sweet:

Wire Ring
Like the delicate ring above? This wire bow ring from I Spy DIY is relatively easy to pull off and is just about the prettiest ring we’ve ever seen. Who knew jewelry pliers and artistic wire could come in so handy? Get ready for an influx of compliments.

Braided Belt
Say Yes to Hoboken shows us an oh-so-easy way to make our own braided twine belt with only a few household tools. The best part? We can make this accessory as versatile as we want with different-colored twine and cotton tape in varied widths.

Tube Bracelet
We’ve seen gold tube bracelets in little boutiques everywhere, but had no idea they were so easy to make. Honestly WTF shows us how to easily put them together. We suggest you make a lot – heavy arm candy is the only arm candy.
