Ah….Old Man Winter. You either love it or hate it. Whatever camp you fall into, you might as well lean into the season. Craft projects are one way to pass the extra time spent indoors — and make your home a little cozier at the same time. Here are a few ideas to get in touch with your creative side:
Store-bought candles contain lots of toxins that can create indoor air pollution. (Ain’t nobody got time for that!) Instead, you might consider making your own. This blogger shows you how you can use a slow cooker to make such a sweet-smelling addition to your home.
There’s something about textiles and their ability to make a house a home. A cloud-shaped faux sheepskin rug may be just what you need to bring some warmth and style to your space.
Just like the rug adds texture, a furry stool has next-level design appeal, too. All you’ll need is an IKEA Marius stool, spray paint and some faux fur of course.
Call it a bright idea. lighting can really set the mood in a space. If your vibe is feeling a bit tired, maybe it’s time for some new-to-you elements. Whether new, used or some combination, you can really tie a room together on the cheap with lighting fixtures.
You know that friend whose home always smells amazing? Well, this might be her secret. Take a cue from this blogger and use fruit and spices to make a sweet-smelling concoction on the stove that will make your place smelling like a dream.
We spend about a third of our lives in bed, so yours might as well do it in style. This DIY headboard is sure to create a focal point in your bedroom.
Some people find knitting to be relaxing, almost zen. If you find yourself drawn to this art, making this chunky knit pillow might be up your alley.
