5 Easy DIY Projects

upcycling

These DIY projects are a great way to pass the time and add a new piece to your home without buying anything. Upcycling is not only a fun way to get creative, but it is also great for the environment. Try one of the tutorials below to see how you can upcycle and turn something you already own into something new.
Wooden Furniture Hacks
1. Jersey Rope Footstool

Give a modern twist to something old-fashioned, like this footstool from Wooden Furniture Hacks by Hester Van Overbeek. It looked tatty and unloved, but changing its seat from the old rattan to a brightly coloured chunky yarn gave the stool a new lease of life. Any footstool with a fabric or rattan seat can be given a makeover—you might have a similar piece of furniture in your attic or you can pick them up for next to nothing in second hand furniture stores or online. Try the tutorial here.

Handmade Glamping

2. Upcycled Glass Jar Lantern

Turn old preserve or condiment jars into cute and colorful lanterns with this easy project from Handmade Glamping by Charlottle Liddle and Lucy Hopping. These will look great in the garden on those long summer evenings coming our way! Try the tutorial here.

Handmade DIY Bee House

3. DIY Bee House Project

This is a fun and easy project from Handmade Bird, Bee and Bat Houses by Michele McKee-Orsini that small bees will love. Keeping native non-stinging mason bees is a surprisingly easy way to help the environment, and it’s also an inexpensive and educational project for kids. The best news is that these hyper-efficient pollinators will do wonders for your fruit crops and gardens! Try the tutorial here.

4. DIY Stenciled Cabinet

Turn your hand to some DIY with the help of Nicolette Tabram and her book Modern Stencils. This stenciled cabinet is a great project to start you off. With just a lick of paint and a bit of love, you can transform an old piece of furniture into a real statement piece. Follow the tutorial here.

5. DIY Polaroid Photo Frame
Time to get your favourite pics off your phone and display them for everyone to see in this retro DIY photo frame from Photo Art by Ellie Laycock. We love the vintage look of polaroids, plus it’s simple to swap new favorites in and out when you fancy a change. Use jazzy clips or mini pegs to hold the photos and layer as many as you wish for a totally unique and personalized display. Follow the tutorial here.
