You know you have a knack for crafty items. That’s why you’re here in the first place. If you’ve been feeling that itch to get started with a new project at home, here’s a list to inspire you.
From painting to paper, sewing to wall art, you’ll find plenty of ideas to get started with, regardless of your interests.
Faux Cotton Candy From Fabric
Who doesn’t love cotton candy? They are sweet, colorful, and fun to eat. Well, you can’t indeed store them, for they may rot over time. However, you can create faux cotton candies at home.
Pick up some old sheets or pieces of fabric. Unravel all its threads, spray some soft glue over the threads, and blow hot air over them. While you’re blowing hot air over it, make sure you wrap the threads around a wooden stick. And there you have your faux cotton candy. Make sure to spray some clear glitter on top to keep it glistening.
Air Brushed Wall Art
Want a beautiful wall art, but worried about the cost? Well, fear not. You can create your own wall art on any wall in your home. Just pick up some colors, an air blower, and a brush. And yes, you might also need a stencil if you’re not so good at drawing.
Place the stencil on the wall, and secure it in place with the help of paper tapes. Dip your brush into the paintbox. Make sure you pick up a lot of paint. Then blow air over it, and you’re done. You can even mix and match different color combinations.
Well, jewelry pieces are meant for you to flaunt your fashion sense. But, buying one could be very expensive, regardless of whether you’re getting a diamond one or some Bohemian street jewelry. Don’t worry, you can make your necklace at home as well.
Bring in all the sequins, beads, stones, and faux gems you can find in your home. Now, you’d need to tie them all up together. Pick up a triple-plied thread of at least 20-30 denier. You can also get a metal wire if you like. Anyway, string all the beads and sequins together but make sure you include stones at specific intervals.
Think of fine prints on tumblers, and you’d certainly want one for your kitchen. Well, to put it simply, printed tumblers are fabulous and come in a variety of prints. And the best part is you can create one at home. All you need is a sublimation sheet, some designer print, and a tumbler. And don’t forget a heat press.
Place the sublimation sheet on top of the tumbler you want to print. Place it inside the tumbler heat press machineand make sure that it is snuggly fit inside the cavity. Turn on the device, and it’s done. Within seconds your personalized sublimation tumbler is printed. Enjoy your daily brews in it or carry it around the town in your handbag. It is sure to grab the attention of everyone you flaunt it before.
Recycled Wine Vase
This bohemian art is sure to allure your guests. You need not invest in a costly glass or ceramic vases when you can easily create one at home.
Pick up some empty wine bottles and clean them up thoroughly to get rid of any odor or residue. Fill it up with clear water and place some daisies, or any flower you like for that matter, inside the bottle. And it’s done. To take it a step further, you can also add some food color to the water. Or you can use some water-based permanent stains to paint them in solid colors. The choice is yours, but this recycled wine vase is sure to invite appreciation from your guests.
If you’re somewhat into vintage craft ideas, then this one should surely intrigue you. Saucer frames not only look great on walls but also can be placed over your fireplace mantle. And they are sure to create an old-school vintage look for your living room or your bedroom.
Pick up some printed ceramic saucers. You can choose any shape if you wish to be a little more creative, but we suggest going for a rounded saucer. They are more vintage-like than other contemporary shapes. Nonetheless, take out some old photographs, trim them to fit in the center, and fix them with glue. And you’re done.
Paper Towel Castle
We all loved castles, from cinderella or other Disney motion pictures. Well, you can create a miniature replica of the same with paper towel rolls.
Collect some emptied paper towel rolls and place them together on a board vertically. Use hot-glue to keep them in position. Next, you’d need to make cones with colored paper. Make sure you choose pastel colors or vintage shades for cones. Paint the empty paper towel rolls in the same color, and you have your miniature castle. Place it in your common room or by the side of your kid’s bed.
Wine Cork Pin Board
Need a pinboard to place all grocery shopping lists or any other important notes? Why buy one when you can easily create one at home. All you need is some wine bottle corks, hot glue, and rope/thread.
Arrange all the corks on a flat surface and stick them together with the help of hot glue. Make sure to pack them as tightly as possible. Next, tie a rope or thread around the whole arrangement. And there you have – your very own personalized cork pinboard.
Scented Nail Polish Candles
Last but not least, get ready to indulge yourself in some relaxing sessions with aroma candles. The best part is you can make them at home.
You’ll need some empty nail polish bottles, wax, and lots of natural oils. You can choose any fragrance, from lavender to sandalwood, and even tea-tree extracts. Melt your wax and mix it with the essential oils thoroughly. Pour it into the empty nail polish bottles and place a wick in the center. Light them up while enjoying a dip or before you plan to sleep. You can even choose to add some colors to the wax to make it more attractive.
