Now that the blitz of wedding preparations is over, I have to say that I have been missing all the craftiness. Over the last year I was knee deep in DIY projects for the 'big day' and now all I have time for is studying. Sigh.
But that doesn't mean I can't daydream about the projects I would like to do if I could manage to free up an hour or two. Here are some of my current favorites . . . which ones would you take on?
Say Yes to Hoboken has the best DIY projects. Seriously, amazing. I had a hard time narrowing it down, but here are my top four: Leather Strap Heart Tote, Spotty Pillowcases, Leather Fold Over Clutch, Handmade Clay Pots.
Oh Happy Day also has a big repository of DIY-goodness, particularly projects for kids and parties. The Fruit Balloon tutorial and the Magnet Wall are two of the most inspirational.
How cute are these gold leaf bowls? I think I am going to make a ton and give them out as holiday presents.
Also, simple but brilliant these DIY Gold Staples fall into the 'why didn't I think of that' category.
As someone who has a book in her hand for at least several hours a day, these Geometric Bookmarks would help make studying a bit more fun.
I don't have the wall space for this, but if you just moved into a new place and are overwhelmed by the bare walls this DIY Wall Art piece would be awesome.
Same thing here. I think these sparkly mobiles would look lovely against white rental walls, over a baby's crib, in an entryway or to decorate a party.
