Do-it-yourself projects don’t have to be daunting. You also don’t need to be a power tool expert. You can whip up something adorable and chic at home. The DIY projects featured here will make you look like a crafty pro. The best part is that only you need to know that you knocked these out in a weekend.
Painted Statement Jars
Using inexpensive glass jars, A Kailo Chic Life, turned what would be boring bathroom accessories in statement pieces. The pops of color and gold lids can brighten up your boring cotton balls. Keeping a clear window for the contents to show through making these unique and functional. Everyone will know what the chic container is holding.
The New Chalkboard
For a cute and functional memo board space, Girl Loves Glam turned to black vinyl. The vinyl is actually writable with chalk and chalk markers. It is also a much cleaner and quicker method that chalk paint. Vinyl comes in a variety of colors to fit any style or decor.
Vintage Windows That Sparkle
Using a set of vintage windows, you can add a touch of whimsy and sparkle to your space. The twinkling windows created by Mother Daughter Projects are perfect for the holidays or a cozy evening. The switches and batteries are hung on the wall and painted for a seamless look.
Faux Leather Tote Bags
Faux leather tote bags can make the perfect gift bag or tote for yourself. Using a paper that looks like leather, they look far more expensive than they are. This paper is even washable. The leather paper comes as cardstock on a roll but after it’s washed it becomes soft like leather. Francois Et Moi even sewed the paper and added a touch of paint to create this unique look.
Gold Foil For The Win
From boring to glam, all by way of DIY. Take an inexpensive bowl up a notch with gold foil paint. Homey Oh My used gold leafing to emphasize a uniquely shaped bowl. The gold leafing instantly upgrades an otherwise plain dish. Once the bowl is painted, finish it off with food-safe sealant. This will protect the dish and your food.
