It’s starting to look like we’ll still be hanging out at home for most of the spring, so I wanted to gather some fun craft ideas that you might actually really like. I really try to avoid Pinterest fails, since I’ve spent a lot of time and money in the past trying to DIY something that I should’ve just bought.
These DIYs are great for yourself or to make as a gift for someone special. Now is a great time to show appreciation for the people in your life. Most of these would cost you $20 or less to make as well!
DIY Spring Wreath: I love the idea of making your own customized spring wreath. These would be so cute for in your office or a kitchen window. You could also get a pack of a few mini hoops and make multiples! The florals and leaf elements are totally up to you to customize, so get creative!
Hand Painted Terra Cotta Pots: I saw these on etsy and thought it would be such a cute idea to DIY. White paint looks really cool on terra cotta, and you could customize however you wanted. You could even add words with a paint marker. Add a plant to give to someone special as a gift!
Biscotti: Can food count as a DIY? I saw this biscotti recipe and knew I had to try it! It’s a great treat for your morning coffee or an afternoon pick-me-up.
Hand Pressed Coasters: This DIY tutorial is actually for ornaments, but I thought it could be a fun idea for coasters too! You could actually use this technique for other décor items like decorative trays or bowls too. How pretty would that be!
Valentines Treats: Adding these because these wafer cookies were my absolute favorite when I was a child. Don’t they just remind you of childhood? I love making these ~fancy~ for Valentines treats by dipping them in chocolate and decorating with sprinkles and candies. Treat someone or treat yourself!
