If you’re like me and change your mind on what you like every five minutes, art hangers are a great way to decorate without fuss. Hang a few of these glitter covered hangers on your wall and swap and change your favourite pics to suit your mood or decor!
Though for some people doilies bring up memories of visiting Nanna’s dusty house, they are really fun to craft with. From lacy earrings to lacy bunting, they can bring some retro fun to your home (and ears). I’ve seen bowls made before from doilies but what I like the most about this DIY is the added pastel colour to the edges. Great for holding all your little bits and pieces, these would also make a great gift!
This is such a beautiful pendant, and honestly, if you can use a hot glue gun then you can create it. The trims may be a bit pricey but for a feature piece, it’s totally worth it! If you’re not familiar with Moroccan Wedding blankets, try Google image search- there are so many gorgeous pieces to take inspiration from!
I’m not sure why I love this little chair so much, but I do. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s upcycling something in a way I would never have thought of myself? For whatever reason, it’s so much fun and would make a great kids chair.
p.s. Home Story is a German website, so the link to the DIY is translated through Google but the link to the website will point to the original German site. Just paste website into Google and you can have a look around!
I know that a lot of people are probably over mason jars, but I still love them! They are so easy to craft with and you can generally buy them pretty cheaply in bulk. The project above that I love the most is the hand wash jar - all you need is the pump, a hammer, a nail and some pliers! So easy and much cheaper to make than buy. Click through for links to all the above projects and get inspired!
Felt bows must be one of the easiest things to make - all you need is felt, scissors and a hot glue gun. But what to do with your little felt bows other than put them in your hair? Brit + Co has your answer - attach them to everything! I particularly love the dog bow tie - great for when your dog is going for an important interview or attending a wedding!
I’ve quite often seen those DIY clock kits at Spotlight & Lincraft and wanted to try one but hadn’t had much inspiration as to what to turn it into! Well this is perfect and so easy to make too. Simply download the incredibly cute free cuckoo clock printable from HC, and then follow the directions to make your own faux clock.
Just like fashion, what’s popular in crafts always comes back around. Macrame was once huge in homewares - then it was incredibly daggy - now it’s back baby! Granted, it’s usually in it’s simplest form and in neutral colours (or sometimes with a bit of neon chucked in there), unlike the earthy orange, brown and moss greens of the 70’s. This fantastic curtain is great to separate a room or as decoration on your wall - just don’t combine it with wall to wall shag!
I’m a bit in love with this side table - especially those studs! like that this piece would work so well in so many different decors too. I know that where I live I could find a tree stump from friends with farms, but maybe check with your council before you start grabbing things off the side of the road!
Here’s another fantastic concrete DIY, this time in the form of some super cute gemstones! Before they set, super strong magnets are popped in to create some truly unique magnets. Even better, AHIL has made a ‘You’re a gem’ notecard so that you can make these for someone special for Valentine’s Day!
This year I have decided that I’m going to invest in craft & DIY books and just purchased Lena Corwin’s ‘Made By Hand’. So I was excited to find that there was a project from the book featured on Design*Sponge (but excited!). I can’t wait for the book to come, but in the mean time I’m going to have a go at these amazing bowls - they would be an awesome house warming gift!
I love mid century modern anything, but I don’t love the price tag that usually comes with vintage pieces! This is a great tutorial on getting that mod look without the dollars - you can use glasses you already have or grab some cheapies from IKEA or similar - and download the template to make your own sparkly stunners. By the way, if you’re as obsessed with those gumball stirrers as I am, you can get the tutorial here!
If you’ve got a jumper you can’t bear to part with but can’t bear to wear, here is a way to keep them close to you - stitched into some big, warm, fluffy hearts! This would also be a really sweet project to use with kids clothes that they’ve grown out of that you want to keep too!
If you can cut triangles and glue them down, you can create an equally amazing piece of art just like the one pictured! Modern & geometric design generally fits in with most interiors, and of course you can customise the colours to suit - I would do pinks, greys, and of course… gold!
This is such a clever idea! The ‘aida cloth’ for this project is made out of…felt! That’s right, felt! Once you’ve drawn up your grid, you then punch the holes to cross stitch through. This is such a fun project and would be great for kids to have a go at. My mind is brimming with the different designs you could achieve with this - think 60’s mod flowers, zig zags, words, multi-colour squares - check out Etsy for inspiration and Pinterest for free cross stitch designs too!
