Crafting is a way of life. It’s choosing to say yes, maybe it would be more convenient to let someone else make this for me and simply pay them for it, but I know I can make it better and cheaper on my own. Crafters see the potential in everyday objects to become more than they are. These DIY craft projects will inspire you to consider how you can upcycle and repurpose and create. 

DIY Craft Materials

Did you know you can make some of your most used crafting materials from scratch? The majority of the projects listed here can be made with what you already have around the house! For example, did you know you can make a Mod Podge substitute with just water and plain white glue? It’s true, no need to buy the brand name product from the craft store when you can mix up your own for a much more affordable price. Now, not only can you make homemade crafts, you can also make DIY craft materials to make your homemade crafts. 

Craft Decor

A day spent crafting is a day well spent. Check out these great craft projects to add to your craft bucket list. These crafts will decorate your home and remind you of the joy of making them each time you see them.

Create a unique and interesting home decor craft by learning how to get an object into a light bulb. Clean out all the t-shirts in you dresser drawer that you’ll never wear again and sew it up into a homemade t-shirt quilt to warm you and your heart. Turn an orange into a candle (yes, it’s possible). There are so many great home craft ideas just waiting for you to create them.

Useful Crafts

Decorative crafts are lovely, but it’s great when you can make a craft you’ll actually use in your daily life. These home improvement crafts are here to make your life easier. Whether you want to find a quick and easy way to differentiate all your keys, or need a lunch box for the kids but don’t want to buy one, there’s a project here that will somehow improve your life.

I tried so hard to make those marbled mugs. I messed up though because I would dip the mug into a chunk of nail polish floating in the water instead of the water that had only a little bit of nail polish. Luckily, I could just use nail polish remover and now I have pretty white mugs again!
