These DIY Squishes Are a Kawaii Crafter's Dream Come True

If you love crafting all things "kawaii" (or "cute"), then you'll fall in love with these DIY squishies by YouTuber Ketchupgiri.

What are squishies, you ask? Only the most fun and interactive accessory you can make out of foam and paint. Prepare to obsess over these little squishy toys that can be attached to keychains, backpacks and cell phones.

Homemade Squishies listed on my storenvy ???? tbh my feed is a mess ????

Donut Squishy

We just can't stop glazing—I mean gazing—at this foam donut. The attention to sprinkle detail is just foam-omenal.


M&M Cookie Squishy

This M&M cookie puts the "good" in baked good! I hope you like your cookies chewy because this squishy is served super soft.

Onigiri Squishy

Soft Pretzel Squishy

Soft pretzels are a staple snack for every mall or movie theater trip. To really take this purse accessory up a notch, try making a Wetzel's Pretzels-style dipping sauce to accompany the salty treat.

I mean, need I say more?

Sweethearts Squishy

Just because Valentine's Day has passed doesn't mean we aren't in immediate need of these mini squishy hearts. Attach a ball chain to each heart and you have the perfect BFF present for every girl in your gang.
