Surrounding The World With Cuteness (And Saving Girls From Boredom)

A forever rainbowholic and a kawaii lover, Japan-based blogger Kaila / カイラ tries to transform the world into a more cheerful place to live in… with cuteness.


 Kawaii D.I.Y. aims to inspire its readers to make simple yet creative projects while promoting eco-friendliness and self-productivity at the same time.


Save money,

reduce your room junk,

and come up with something quirky or fashionable -

by doing iyour own.

The Idea Inception

I've always enjoyed creating things out of random stuff (perfect example: trash) + personalizing everything that I have.

I do that mainly because... 

  1. ...out of boredom.
  2. I don't have money / too frugal to spend on something I think I could create on my own.
  3. I love all things cute!
  4. It saves all my junk I'd refuse to throw out.

Introducing my matchbox camera I made years ago.

During that time, miniature slr camera accessories were so rare & expensive! I was just a student with sufficient allowance so I had to be extra careful with budgeting my money.

And then.. 

I saw an empty matchbox at home. Did some paper mache and  used the remaining black paint I had from my Prang watercolor (using it way back when I was in elementary!).

The white polkadots were done using a correction fluid / pen.

If you don't have a camera/dslr as at present. here's one for the moment. ;D

Got a second-hand Wacom tablet (my first ever which lasted over 3 years?) from my brother.

It looked too boring + I was so bored so.. : )

Pop Art + Self-portraits were my thing before.

Sewed that camera on the black shirt : )

I couldn't sleep properly because my eye mask had gone missing... so I made one for myself.

With robot eyes! Haha~

Bought a pair of cheap Advan flats and drew doodles on it.

Transformed my dirty and plain chucks to a rainbowholic one ;-D

Bought cheap (around a dollar only?) polkadotted shoelaces to make it cuter.


With just creativity and readily-available stuff from your home, you can modify something using your own style. : )


And I will be your Sensei.
