It's not unusual to wander the aisles of IKEA looking for ideas to make your home better. But have you ever thought about turning items you find in IKEA into things you can wear? We've gathered the DIY projects of eight visionary folks who took unusual IKEA items and turned them into fashion statements!

We just love the imagination every one of these projects exudes. And although some of the exact prints and products featured in these projects might not be available anymore, we hope these spark some ideas for you!

Pictured above: Turn a faux sheepskin rug into a vest! Via Brit + Co.

This perfect-for-lounging-by-the-pool long skirt is made from a some bold black and white striped fabric from IKEA. Spotted on Kristi Murphy.

Would you prefer a shorter skirt version of that dynamic black and white look? We found a project on Funkytime.

Or how about a yellow and white striped fabric turned into a chic bag you can tote your things in? Seen on Say Yes.

Those cozy, warm fleece blankets perfect for curling up with on the couch can now be a cardigan you can wear all day long! Seen on Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom.

Turn cute kids beads into an exciting, grown-up necklace to wear. Seen on Is Laura.

This cute summer dress is made from a shower curtain! (There don't seem to be very many instructions on the link, but the idea was worth sharing.) Spotted on Fehr Trade.

Whoa! High fashion and neat angles found in this skirt made from heavy, printed and bold fabric at IKEA. Seen on Trinkets in Bloom.
