March 27, 2020
If you’re spending more time at home and having a hard time staying busy, you’re not alone. Many people are turning to crafting to stay occupied! If you can’t stand to watch one more hour of Netflix, try one of these easy DIY projects. Chances are you already have the materials you need to make at least one of them.
Paper Flower Garland [Lia Griffith]
If you have some twine, a hot glue gun, and a printer, you can make this flower garland. Simply print out the PDF on colored paper (or color the flowers one by one), cut out the faux blooms, and affix them to twine using a hot glue gun. Then hang them from another piece of twine and use the garland to perk up your apartment.
Woven Fabric Necklace [A Beautiful Mess]
An old t-shirt and a pair of scissors are all you need to create your own colorful piece of statement jewelry. This tutorial leads you through the simple process of shredding the t-shirt (the brighter, the better), and then weaving it into a chunky necklace, the perfect statement piece for your spring wardrobe.
Penne Statement Necklace [Don’t Mind If I Do]
Hear us out: pasta jewelry. It’s not just for kids anymore. No one will even realize this trendy chevron necklace is secretly made out of pasta. If you have penne, nail polish, a hot glue gun, and a chain (or really any type of string) on hand, you can recreate it with ease.
Hand-Embellished Mugs [A Beautiful Mess]
This craft is perfect for the freestyle artist! All you need are a few spare ceramic mugs—white is ideal, but any neutral hue will really do—and a permanent marker or paint pen. Simply decorate the mug however you like and let it dry. The resulting masterpiece will be both dishwasher- and microwave-safe!
