Apartment dwellers and those who do not have enough outdoor space for a garden can make several of these baskets to grow organic produce in their homes.
This is another craft that can be given away as gifts for birthdays, holidays and weddings. You will need to use coarse sea salt or Epsom salt and mix with an essential oil of your choice. Add some food coloring to make the bath salts more luxurious and vibrant.
Wall Paint Swatch
Are you tired of looking at those bland white or off-white walls but you are not sure what color you should paint them? Why not paint the walls with every color? You can visit any home renovation store like Home Depot or Lowe’s and create an interior decor and craft project with paint swatches. You can pin the swatches to any wall in your home with straight pens to create an instant room makeover.
If you are looking for a unique way to add lighting to an outdoor walking path, patio, interior hall or living area, you can create yarn-wrapped painted jars.
To complete this craft, you will need several glass jars. Mix and match the jars’ sizes and designs and wrap each jar with yarn. After wrapping the jars, paint them and wait until the jars are dry to peel away the yarn. The result will be uniquely designed jars, and you can place candles or tea lights inside to give off a stunning luminary effect.
Hopefully, these five easy do it yourself crafts will inspire your creativity. You can create these crafts for gifts, for profit or for personal use.
