Easy holiday party outfits using DIY projects!

We had a bunch of friends over for a dinner party this weekend and it was so fun! Potluck style so the set-up and cleanup was easy, and we just barely all fit around our dining table so we took up the whole dining/kitchen area while eating, and used the living room, all festive with the tree, for the toddlers to play in. It was so fun having people over and seeing friends this time of year (some of them we only see once or twice a year!)

It got me thinking about dressing for holiday parties and I put together these ideas for you--if you want to show off your DIY projects and dress for the season!

No need to stress about making up something new--you probably already have some very cool DIYs that you can make festive!

3 easy holiday party outfits (with DIY projects!)

1. Dress up a DIY graphic tee!

There are so many cool graphic tees out there and I love playing with dressing one up or down. This is one I did with my Silhouette machine, super easy iron-on vinyl lettering. It's a comfy weekend piece but works great with a blazer! This one's knit and has 3/4 length sleeves so it's not too business-ey. (Similar options here, here, and here.)

Plus boyfriend jeans and double necklaces! (Lauren Conrad for Kohl's, she has some great necklaces--similar here, here, here, and here.)

2. Wear a furry scarf (no coat needed) with a bright plaid!

I made a couple scarves with this furry scarf tutorial. I played with the proportions so some of them turned out more collar-like, like this black one below. 

Paired with a Christmas-ey plaid button-down and bright skirt (this one's super nice wool from J.Crew--similar from J.Crew Factory), it's SO festive!

3. Make a summer dress or romper work for winter.

This grey romper I made is so quirky fun to wear! Glad I could make it appropriate for winter, too! You could easily do this with a summery dress, too. Would be cute with a cotton print, or stripe! (Or if you're inspired by the romper... check out this post with 10 romper pattern options and make yourself a black or sparkly one just for winter parties!!)

I paired this one with a comfy boyfriend cardigan and booties (similar here, here, and here).

See, so much you can do with things you've already made!

If you do feel like making something new, I just saw a fun round-up on Kollabora of holiday season/party project inspirations--including this wool plaid jumper and this soft plaid tunic top by yours truly!

Happy crafting, enjoying previous projects, and partying!
