5 DIYs to try this weekend

May 24, 2012

Thanks to Pinterest and a wealth of crafty bloggers, DIY projects are everywhere. Here are a few ideas to try over this long holiday weekend, whether you’re staying home or have a few hours to kill in the car or on a plane.

Hurricane Bracelets via I Spy DIY

I spent many, many summertime hours in the early ’90s making lanyard bracelets and keychains. They say everything comes back in style, right? Give it a try again – I bet it’s like riding a bike.

Citrus Coasters via The Purl Bee

These felt coasters are perfect for a Memorial Day BBQ. No sewing machine required.

Homemade Nut Milk via My New Roots

I made my own almond milk for the first time last week, and I may never go back to the boxed stuff. It’s definitely worth trying. This video is styled so well – who knew a video about nut milk could be this charming!

Rope Bracelet via Honestly WTF

Honestly WTF has so many great DIY ideas, especially for on-trend bracelets and necklaces that look just like the pieces you’re seeing in boutiques right now. You can get everything you need at the hardware store – a perfect roadtrip project!

Makeup Brush Holder via Centsational Girl

You’ll need a sewing machine to attempt this one, but it’s such a great way to store makeup brushes, especially for travel. This would also be a really cute crayon or marker holder for kids. I’m going to dust off my sewing machine and give this one a whirl this weekend.

    I’ve gotten into making barefoot sandals. I’ve made two already, and I’m just getting started. They are extremely easy. I can rock the heck out of a lanyard key-chain and/or bracelet. Also, I’ve gotten into origami recently.
