DIY snow days
If you’re house bound this weekend (as many of us will be) keep your hands warm and busy by doing some or all of the following DIY projects:
For the house:
Dig through your recycling for leftover paper, grab some scissors and string: these snowflake curtains are a perfect project for a snowy day.
Make your own memory box tabletop – no tools needed!
While you may not be able to go far this weekend, you can at least plan for a vacation! Begin by making these snazzy luggage tags out of recycled yogurt containers.
Salvage an old chair or other piece of furniture with these easy stencils.
Take a break from your day of craftiness and cook with leftovers – depending on what’s in your fridge or pantry, you may have enough to avoid going to the store altogether.
With the kids:
Gather up some pinecones before they’re covered in snow and make these simple but charming bird feeders.
Playdough provides and endless source of entertainment for kids of all ages and it’s very easy to make at home.
Try making these adorable wax decorations (melt some old candles down if you need extra wax) that are perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Hairpins, felt, and glue (or thread) are all you need to make these fun and funky hair accessories.
Coasters made from recycled magazines are suitable for all ages – the little ones can tear the pages while the older kids fold and weave the paper.
