Easy DIY Crafts:
1. Tie-dye mugs, cups and plates
If you want to give a new lease on life to your old, white mugs, cups and plates, you may want to consider using tie-dye to turn each mug, cup, and plate that you want to transform into a unique, work of art.
If you’re interested you can use your favorite nail polishes as dyes. Simply fill up a bucket with warm water and pour your chosen nail polish into your bucket of hot water. Just make sure to hold your nail polish under the water as you don’t want your nail polish to sit on the surface as your water and need your nail polish to mix into your water.
Then use a toothpick to mix your nail polish into your hot water, before dipping your mug, cup or plate into the water. Once you remove your piece, let it dry properly. If you want your piece to feature more than one color, simply let it dry before repeating the process above with a new bucket of water and nail polish color.
Whether you’d love to personalize your own coffee cup or you’re looking to DIY a thoughtful gift for a loved one, it’s well worth experimenting with nail polish as a tye dye ingredient.
2. Create a decorative frame for your flat screen television
If you’d like to be able to disguise your television when you’re not using it, it’s well worth measuring your flat screen television in order to create a frame for your television, which will make your television look like a piece of art, rather than an eyesore.
If you’re interested in using your DIY skills to build a custom-made frame for your television, just be sure to make your frame 1cm bigger than your television, so that it will comfortably fit inside its new frame, without incurring any scratches.
3. Give an old chaise or ottoman a new lease on life with brand new fabric
Instead of simply throwing out a chaise or ottoman which has faded or ripped fabric, you’ll easily be able to give your piece of furniture a new lease on life by reupholstering your item with an attractive, eye-catching fabric. If in doubt, you can’t go wrong opting for a luxurious velvet fabric in a dark hue such as navy or burgundy or opting for a classic floral print.
4. Sew your own cushion covers
If you don’t have the skills necessary in order to reupholster a chaise or an ottoman, you may want to work on your sewing skills by creating brand new cushion covers. That way you’ll be able to change your sofa’s cushion covers on a regular basis, which will change the look of your lounge, for a small cost. If you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on a new sofa, it’s really worth creating an assortment of varying cushion overs.
