DIY Craft Project Ideas

Thanks for Sharing!

Welcome to Crafty Creators Link Party #26! As a guest host for the month of July, I’ve featured 5 talented bloggers who shared their DIY craft project ideas with us at last week’s party.

Niki, from Life as a Leo Wife, invites bloggers to share all of their wonderful crafts, DIYs, fashion, and recipes. Link ups are shared every Thursday through Monday.

To our readers and subscribers, we hope you enjoy visiting all of the blogs for lots of inspiration!

Julie, from Sum of their Stories, has upcycled plastic food containers into pretty storage. You can make these containers to match your office or another room that you need something to store small supplies in.

This looks like a very easy craft project idea to try out, so grab some pretty scrapbook paper and Mod Podge and you’re all set for creating your own unique storage!

Gail, from Purple Hues and Me, has created an amazing looking tin can flowers wreath. She made it using aluminum soda cans!

It’s a copycat version of an Anthropologie wreath she saw and, of course, it’s much less expensive than the original. Hop over to her blog to see how she made the flowers!

Since so many grocery stores require you to use your own bag these days, T’onna from Sew Crafty Crochet crocheted her own shopping bag to use on the go.

The colors she chose to use are so pretty, aren’t they? She provides a link to the craft project pattern, so if you start crocheting now you can make some for Christmas gifts!

Do you enjoy making your own greeting cards? Meg from I Teach Stamping, has handcrafted a sweet card using blending brushes.

She used an umbrella die to craft this pretty card to send to a friend. Visit her blog to watch the video so you can follow along to see how the card is made.

Lisa, from Condo Blues, teaches us how to switch out the printed portion of those inexpensive bamboo hand fans. This is a very clever DIY craft project!

Think of all the fabric color or print options you can change the look to. Drop by her blog to get all the craft project details!
