Occasionally the weather keeps you stuck inside. For those days when it’s raining but you don’t want to read a book or binge on Netflix, consider a fun DIY or craft project to keep you busy. Most can be done with things you already have around the house. If you find yourself running low on supplies you can always order from an online craft store to make sure you are prepared for the next rainy day.
Low maintenance and visually appealing, beach terrariums are a great way to use any shells and sand you have stored around the house from your last vacation. Moss or air plants make great green additions. Get creative with the container and consider using an old burnt out lightbulb.
Painted Coffee Mugs
Go freehand if you’re feeling confident and artistic. Otherwise, opt for a stencil or simple design to spice up your morning coffee cup. Don’t forget to seal the mug once the paint is dried to make sure your masterpiece lasts through multiple washes.
Crochet Washcloths or Hot Pads
Use up spare scraps of yarn to create useful everyday items. Washcloths are a great way to practice fun new crochet stitches before you commit to a bigger project. Just make sure you aren’t using acrylic yarn if you plan to use your creation as a hot pad!
Coiled Rope Basket
You’ll be able to tidy up some of the clutter on your desk after you finish your mini coiled rope basket. Or you can opt for a larger size basket to store bulkier items like dirty laundry or throw blankets. The project is easy to put together and doesn’t require any sewing skills. Just grab some rope and some glue and you’re ready to get started.
Wine Cork Crafts
Enjoy a refreshing glass of wine and put the cork to good use through crafting. Corks can be repurposed into trivets, bulletin boards, or even wall art. The only limitation is your imagination, or how many bottles of wine you can drink.
What happens when you mix a box of crayons, a hairdryer, and a canvas? Art is what happens. Use the hairdryer to melt the crayon wax onto your canvas to create a unique piece of artwork that is truly your own.
These ideas are proof that with a little inspiration and a few supplies you can be well on your way to having a successful day of crafting indoors.
