There's a huge trend for all things geometric right now – and we're embracing it! Whether you're looking for a quirky Christmas gift to give, or wanting to add an individual touch to a room, these fab, creative projects are the way to go.
Great for crafting with kids, these funky-coloured pin boards add a bold look to any space. Start with a plain cork pin board, acrylic paint in several colours, washi tape and paintbrushes. Adhere the tape in random, criss-crossing lines across the board (remember to leave gaps that are large enougt to be filled with paint). Then, paint in the gaps with your chosen colours. Once dry, gently peel off the tape and you'll be left with a one-of-a-kind design!
Who'd have thought that finger painting could look so spectacular? Start by getting kids to finger paint large pieces of paper in several colours, or do it yourself. Once dried, cut the paper into equal-sized triangles, then stick them in a geometric pattern. Trim your design to a rectangle and frame, then hang it with pride!
These stunning coasters are a great way to boost your décor with a subtle nod to the geometric trend. Start by gethering some thick felt in 3 colours of your choice, cork board, a craft knife and some strong glue. Create a diamond-shaped template from cardstock, then use this to cut eqaul-sized pieces of felt which can placed together to create a star shape (you may need to download a template for this). Next, lay the felt pieces onto the cork in this shape and draw around them, then cut the cork using a craft knife. Stick the pieces onto the cork using craft glue and then trim any rough edges.
Paint colour charts are transformed to create a fabulous work of art. You'll need a variety of these in the colours of the fruit you wish to represent, plus some white card and glue. Start by cutting random, jagged shapes from the colour charts, ensuring you have a spectrum of hues to represent light and shade. Next, draw a faint outline of your chosen piece of fruit, marking out where the lighter and darker parts should be (you may want to refer to a photograph for help). Then simply lay out your paper pieces to fill the outline, sticking them down when you're happy with the arrangement
Tiny pastel-coloured geodes are perhaps the cutest way to nod to the geometric trend! To make this, it's a good idea to download templates for creating various 3D shapes, then trace it onto different coloured card, scoring the fold lines. It's worth threading your string through before you stick together the shapes completely, or it'll be hard to thread the shapes onto the garland!
