I've always been intrigued by jewelry making, but it can be intimidating, and I don't need another crafting obsession to try to organize. So, I think I'm going to try this easy project from Fellow Fellow.
I'm bored. Are you bored? Good, then it's a perfect time to find a new craft project to tackle.
For some reason, I always get crafty in the fall. Maybe it's the chill in the air or the upcoming holidays, but I've decided to just lean into the impulse and get making some things.
There's no real theme to these projects that I found, except that I like them and hope you do to.
That second part may be because I tend to stab myself with pins, but I also like it because it means that I'm not damaging my clothes by poking holes into them.
Does splatter painting count as a project? Well, it includes art supplies and getting messy, so I think so. I like the pop of color, and a whimsy a bit of splatter can add to a space.
I love the detail of dipping the tassels in the same paint. Super cute. This is a great way to save a bit of money by buying something basic and turning it into something one-of-a-kind.
Yarn-based wall decor can make a space feel super cozy, which is perfect for fall, but you don't need to know how to knit or crochet to enjoy it.
Anyone can do that, whether you're good with knitting needles or not. The wooden beads give it a cool boho vibe.
Clearly, I need to look into modern temporary tattoos because these mugs from Sarah Hearts are something I need in my life right now.
By covering them with a layer of Mod Podge, the tattoo is protected and won't just wear right off the surface.
Who says a front door mat has to say "Welcome"? I mean, you can sometimes find ones with funny slogans or something, but when it's my home, I want it to reflect my tastes and personality.
You just need a plain mat, spray paint, and a few tools to make a DIY stencil. Easy peasy.
I may be putting my summer wardrobe away and snuggling into sweaters, but that doesn't mean I don't want to be reminded of warmer days.
You can buy a pack of shells from the dollar store or use ones you collected at the beach. I love the soft glow.
Okay, I'll admit to having a house full of decorative boxes, but at least I use them all. Think of all the clutter that I'm hiding away inside the clutter of boxes!
It's just too cute not to make! Besides being adorable, the little loop handle makes it really easy to open and put things in it.
If you're anything like me, you can pretty much do this project from The Glitzy Pear with the leftover scraps of previous projects.
I think these would be really cute in an entryway, maybe filled with decorative stones and some air plants.
These days, I can't imagine spending money on art for my walls unless it's something really special. Most of the time, I'd rather just make it myself.
And all you need is a selection of free paint chips from the hardware store and a circle punch.
I have a stationery...problem. My collection of pens, inks, and notebooks is bigger than I reasonably need and yet now, I'm learning how to make my own.
What can I say? I love stationery in all of its forms, and I've fallen in love with DIYing it now, too.
My mother tried to teach me to knit many times, but I just never got the hang of it. She did instill me with my love of making things by hand, though — which is more than I can say for my father's attempts to get me to like golfing.
I'm definitely making myself one. Check out the post on Girl Loves Glam for the full instructions.
Swapping out basic hardware is a great way to customize a space, but why not take it a step farther by making your own hardware?
I have a boring Ikea cabinet that I think these might be perfect for!
