Cruelty-Free Creations: 12 Things You Can Make with Faux Fur 

Fur has always been at the center of fashion and home decor, but many people have since recognized that faux fur is a much better alternative, because it doesn’t involve any animals suffering or being killed, but it still gives you the very same look! If you’re looking to make something that feels furry to the touch and has a significantly animalistic look, we encourage you to opt for faux fur and get inspired with these DIY faux fur creations!
