DIY Projects

I don’t know about you, but I have a habit of saving lots and lots of nifty little DIY projects from Pinterest onto a board for when I have another life! That life will be when I don’t work, when I have a modicum of creativity, when I know how to use power tools or in fact when I have any spare time at all!

Earlier today, I was browsing this board and reminded of some of my better ideas (well, not really mine, only what I’d saved!)  and I decided to share some on here.

Now (much to my daughter’s dismay) I do love fur! So it seems only right and proper to share a couple of my favourite furry projects! You might think it’s a little early to mention the ‘C’ word, so I won’t say the word, just show the pictures!

This looks so easy to do, even for someone creatively challenged like me! And the only power tool need ed is a hot glue gun, which I have mastered! Well, when I say mastered, I mean that I can switch it on but haven’t mastered how not to get glue all over everything in sight!

Another fur project is this fab stool. Now this one does involve the use of a jigsaw so is a little more complicated, but well worth the finished result!

I won’t overload you with more fur, so here’s another project I’ve been meaning to try! These gorgeous bead trivets would be perfect in my new kitchen and I know you can buy them on Easy and other places, but how much more satisfying to make them?

There’s a very simple how-to from Apartment Therapy here.

Last of all, a little bit of plant inspo. Now you know I’m trying to Scandify my house, and in lots of the Scandinavian homes I’ve seen on Pinterest, there are simple vases and wild flowers and I’m a little bit in love with these ones:

These hanging plant shelves are a great way to add more plants to your home without cluttering up surfaces.

So, watch this space! Maybe, just maybe you might see some of these in my house soon!
