Everybody knows somebody who always has to have some sort of DIY project underway around the house. Whether it’s turning the cupboard under the stairs into a multi-shelved storage haven or painting the doorknobs in cute patterns, here are some cheap, easy, quick and satisfying ideas for you to get stuck into when inspiration runs dry. Chop chop, those old curtains aren’t going to turn into sofa cushions by themselves!
Collect wine corks & stick them together to make coasters (it’ll be fun building up the collection too…)
Paint wooden spoons different shades of the same colour to create an ombre set (or go rainbow!) and brighten up your kitchen.
Remove the bottom and innards from old lightbulbs and fill with water to create mini-vases. Use pieces of wire to turn them into hanging plant pots!
Pick a bright picture frame (or paint your own), attach hooks to the inner frame & mount on the wall for a unique way to keep your keys organised.
Cut plastic bottles in half and wrap the top half in string. Use a small low watt bulb (otherwise you’ll met the plastic!) and you’ve got a cheap and colourful alternative lampshade.
Add double sided tape to pebbles and stick them to your walls to make natural jewellery hangers.
Gold (or whatever colour you like) paint and some masking tape: voila!
