Give your Mother’s Day bouquet a make over this year and get creative with your gift – your mum is bound to appreciate the homemade effort! This gorgeous string art project looks like flowers in a mason jar, but is made with wood pieces, nails and thread. Don’t be put off if you’re not a woodworking pro; the charm of this project is the rustic, handmade design, so a few wonky nails will only add to the effect!
Do you know a book lover? This project uses folded pages to create a heart shape book display, the perfect homemade Valentine's gift for anyone that loves to read.
Book art sculptures range in difficulty, from simple shapes such as this folded heart to more detailed scenes and intricate patterns. This is an easy book sculpture tutorial taken from Clare Youngs' latest book, Folded Book Art, so it's a great project to get you started!
If you're looking for a simple craft idea to make over the festive break then why not create your own mini winter wonderland with this paper cut project from Clare Youngs? There's still time to make it for friend if you need that extra special homemade gift to put under the tree too.
