Take things slow throughout the first couple of weeks of January by creating these five simple makes
Ever wanted your own personalised mug without having to splash the cash? You'll be delighted to know that with watercolour paint, a couple of brushes and a little imagination you can create a make that's truly original. Maybe you like a particular animal or scenery; whatever design you choose you're sure to have a blast with this project.
A simple word that means a lot to you can be transformed into a work of art using just push pins. Source cardboard, a marker, a box cutter and push pins in your colour of choice. Using a marker outline a word on cardboard, then cut out. Start to outline each letter with the push pins, focussing on the edges before working your way in. Once done, hang your make with pride.
This project will be great to get the kids stuck into. You'll need a balloon, confetti, mod podge and a pin. Blow up a balloon to your desired size, then cover the bottom half with mod podge. Dip the balloon into a bowl filled with confetti until completely covered. Once dry, use a pin to pop the balloon before filling it with odd crafty bits.
A plain kitchen towel can be decorated with little symbols or any other decorative element to suit your mood and style. Get a variety of watercolour paints and paint brushes, channel your inner artistic capabilities and create something you'll be proud of. Leave to dry before displaying proudly in your kitchen.
Got more crafty Christmas gifts? In need of additional storage space? A simple box covered in patterned fabric is all you need for a jazzed-up effect. Cut desired fabric to a size that you feel will cover the interior and exterior of the box, then using craft glue, adhere the fabric to the box. Leave to dry before placing all your craft bits inside.
