Show your creative side by trying out these easy to do homemade crafts that you can enjoy as an activity with your family without hurting your pockets:
- Wire mesh bulletin board—this bulletin board can be achieved by using simple tools like spray paint, brackets, and wire mesh. You can also add fairy lights to make it more stylish.
- Storage ottoman—there’s nothing like building your own stylish piece of furniture, especially if it’s multi-purpose. This project may sound hard, but it is definitely doable for beginner crafters. You may repurpose your wooden crates and from there you can upholster and even add wheels to make it easier to move.
- T-shirt throw pillows—if you have t-shirts that you don’t use anymore, you can repurpose them into decorative throw pillows. The best part about this project is that you don’t need a sewing machine (although you can use one if you have one) as all you need to have is a needle and some thread.
- Canopy nook—if you (or your kids) dream of having your/their own secret space to read books, watch movies, play with dolls, etc., make use of your extra curtains or blanket, quilts and pillows to create a nook. You can also add colorful lights to make it more aesthetic.
- Clipboard wall organizer—can’t get enough of organizing? This project is perfect for you! Make use of clipboards that are no longer in use and from there you can paint or decoupage or even wrap in wrapping paper.
- Hanging picture display—this crafting activity is ideal for those people who like Polaroids or just displaying photos in general. You can make use of yarns, twines or even Christmas lights to make your room brighter and full of memories.
