Another beautiful Friday, and that means some more DIY know-how. This week I highlight some simple, fun, and cheap DIY projects to fuel your creativity! Enjoy!
- Paper Flower Tutorial: This project from Dozi is so neat! I love flowers, in fact I’m wearing some right now. This paper flower tutorial is simple, quick, and cheap to make. In fact you could turn this project into a recyled/upcycled project simply by using something like an old mailing envelope (you know the yellowish-orange kind), or some old greeting cards. I made mine using a sheet of my kids art paper, and though the paper was rather thin, the flowers still turned out looking as they are supposed to. This project took only a couple of minutes to make, and now I’d like to make some more in the future using better, heavier paper.
- How to Decoupage a Notebook: I’m a sucker for pretty notebooks and journals, but who wants to spend a bunch of money on one when you can make it yourself? This is a project I’ve been dying to try for some time, and this tutorial from Grace Violet makes it look super-duper easy, and pretty. A great back-to-school project for older girls too.
- Recycled Craft Supply Organizers: I love recycled stuff with a passion! This project from Recyclart is the perfect way to organize your kids art supplies while getting rid of those dreaded half-gallon plastic milk jugs. There aren’t any instructions with this project, but the photo is pretty self-explanatory. A very creative and useful project.
