DIY art and craft projects are a great way to keep your creative juices flowing! However, the projects that are overly complicated or take an inordinate amount of time to complete bore people, resulting in a significant exodus from the crafting world! However, many people want instant gratification and want to create things that will work quickly while also making them feel proud! So, we’re here to help the beginner skill level or beginner crafters by sharing these 5 DIY art and craft ideas for home that you can whip up at the drop of a hat and the items you’ll make will astound you!
Denim sling bags
How crazy would it be to try this DIY art and craft that would give you a sling bang? Do you have a pair of jeans in your closet that you haven’t worn in years? Why not make good use of them by upcycling them into any fashionable bag? Cut out your jean pocket and stitch the other end with any piece of designed cloth and attach one long piece of belt to the ends to make an instant sling bag that can hold your phone or a small wallet. Pearl rivet embellishments add a touch of glam.
Glowing mason jars
For a variety of reasons, glowing mason jars (also known as fairy lights) are out of this world fun. They’re simple to make, add sparkle to a porch or any space you use at night, and only require inexpensive materials. To create the illumination, you can use glow-in-the-dark paints, glow sticks, or tea lights, depending on how you decorate the mason jars. Glitter and glue can be used to add even more pizazz to the project.
Making your own candles not only saves you money, but it also allows you to know exactly what you are burning in your home. Instead of chemical-laden candles, these DIY art and craft Beeswax Candles in a Jar are completely natural and smell divine. These candles are completely customizable and can be poured into any glass containers or Mason jars. It is a three step DIY and It is as easy as it gets! Make sure to buy some wax and a wick from a local store, some essential oil for the special scent and a glass container to pour it in. Put the gas on, melt the wax and drop in a generous amount of your favorite essential oil and mix it for a while. Once that is done and there are no lumps, put the wick in and pour the melted wax in glass jar and there you go, your scented candle is ready!
Recycled Wine bottles
These are probably one of the best DIY art and craft ideas for home decor! If you are wondering how to begin, well just gather all your paint tubes with brushes, take a clear wine bottle and start pouring your imagination on it. The easier way to do this would be by using glass paints and a marker pen. Use the marker pen to draw an outline of your design and just fill it in with the glass paints and you are done! You can also put some fairy lights into the bottle to make it glow and give that oomph factor to it.
Pressed flower frames
This season, cutting gardens are all the rage. There’s something magical about growing flowers for the sake of their beauty. While fresh flowers from the garden or cut and placed in a vase are lovely, they are, sadly, transient. By pressing your favorite blossoms and displaying them in frames, you can preserve the delicate beauty of the flower garden. In order to begin with this, arrange your favorite flowers. Take the first third of a large, thick book and open it. Place a piece of printer paper on one of the pages and arrange the flowers so that they do not touch. Place another piece of paper over the flowers you just laid out, sandwiching them between both sheets. Close the book by carefully grabbing the next one-third of the pages and closing it so that the flowers are sandwiched between the printer paper and the book pages. Place more books (or a cinderblock) on top of the pressed flower book to keep the pressed flowers evenly weighted. Carefully open the book in two to three weeks and remove your dried, pressed flowers. Carefully place the flowers on a piece of paper and set it on the frame. This could be a great DIY art and craft décor for the walls!
All of these projects are simple but effective, and they will brighten up your moods in these locked up times.
