12 crafts to do in ’14
Have you guys checked out my friend Caitlin’s blog yet? If not, you should. She’s just getting things up and running, but there’s a reason I call her my twin. We’re a lot alike, so if you dig my posts- odds are you’re gonna love hers as well.
If you haven’t clicked on that link, I’ll fill you in. Caitlin just created a post highlighting her goal crafting projects of the year. I loved the idea. Like almost every 20-something girl, my Pinterest boards are crammed with a million DIY projects I’d love to tackle, yunno, if I had 90 hours in a day.
Caitlin made things a little more manageable by listing the top projects she wants to complete this year, and encouraged me to follow suit.
1. Typeset jewelery holder
2. Fabric pillow cases
3. Decorative mirror
4. Burlap monogram wall decoration
5. Burlap and muslin wreath
6. Kitchen table
7. Mason jar oil lamp
8. Pallet board spice rack
9. Vanity table
10. Decorative tray
11. Ikea hack table
12. Pillar candle holders
A lot of these have been on my Pinterest boards for quite some time. I have No. 1’s Ikea Lack table, and it would look phenomenal with a facelift. I inherited an empty wreath from my grandmother and recently picked up an old solid wood table off of Craigslist as well. I have several mason jars and tons of scrap burlap as well, so these projects all seem extremely feasible, and many of them I’ve already started preparing the pieces for. It sounds intimidating now, I guess, but let’s look back on all the projects I undertook and finished in 2013.
1. No-sew burlap curtains
2. Pallet headboard
3. Handpainted chevron duvet cover
4. Wall-mounted herb gardens in mason jars
5. Apple crate side tables
6. Upcycled dollar store picture frames
7. Pallet shelves and mason jar dried goods organization
8. Burlap and twine vase
9. Give Thanks woodburned plaque
10. Etched monogram wine glasses
11. Ticket stub shadow box
12. Orange pomander balls
13. Wax candles
14. Chalkboard “I love you because” sign
…And that’s all just since I started my blog back in July. Looking at it that way makes my dozen DIY project goals look totally attainable. (I hope.) Any project recommendations for me?
