Winter is coming and we don’t know about you, but we have this really lame habit of you know, having seasonal depression; the days are short, it’s pitch black by 5:00 PM, it’s cold outside, and there we sit, on the couch with our fuzziest blanket, the remote, and there’s a good chance there’s an empty pizza box somewhere nearby. We’ve decided that this year we need some new hobbies to keep us busy on these cold, winter nights, so we turned to our favorite blog, A Beautiful Mess, for some crafty inspiration. And the best part? These crafts are all super customizable and can be done with just a few materials. Let’s get started!
Marbled Clay Ring Dish
If you have a lot of rings, or small pieces or jewelry, or know someone that does (because these are adorable and would make excellent gifts) then you should try your hand at making a marbled clay ring dish. You’ll only need a handful of materials and these are totally customizable pieces. Check out the details right here!
Yarn Wall Art DIY
This little boho wall art piece is made with yarn and it couldn’t be a more perfect craft to cozy up with of an evening while you catch up on your shows. And of course, we love how customizable it is when it comes to the color scheme, and this is another craft that will keep you busy and it doubles as a great gift! Get the directions here!
Clay Petal Planter
You’ve seen the cakes, and frankly, those look really hard to make, but with a little bit of clay, you can make a planter that will brighten up any dark corner you may have. If multicolors aren’t really your scene, you can go black and white or earth-toned. And if the thought of keeping a plant alive in this thing is already giving you anxiety, no sweat, a fake succulent looks just as adorable in it. Check out the details here!
Quick Weave Wall Hanging
If you are always looking for a way to play with textures or add dimension to your space (or just like woven wall hangings) then this is just the project for you! Planning the various colors and textures of this wall hanging is half the fun, and we would have to say that admiring the finished product is the other half. Get project directions here!
