How to make a foldable tractor out of a cardboard box with free printables is a paid collaboration with Halfords #ImaginationStation. One of my best ever gifts was a bike and this is the same for lots of children, but also kids LOVE cardboard boxes. So why not reuse the cardboard box that comes with your child bike and make a brilliant cardboard tractor, even better this cardboard box tractor folds flat for storage.
Tissue Confetti DIY Decorated Photo Frame is a paid collaborative post with Bostik. This is a super simple craft DIY that is a perfect group craft for tweens and teens. Just imagine doing this as a birthday party craft or with a group of beavers or cubs. Alternatively, you could make this for the birthday boy/girl and pop a picture of them in it.
This DIY Terrazzo polymer clay ring dish is a simple way of using up leftover coloured polymer clay. You can really mix things up by using different colours. Not only are they really simple to make they look fabulous. Plus Terrazzo is making a real comeback, in fact, I think it might be the new DIY marbling! This would be a really great handmade homemade gift.
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine. These DIY Applique Monstera Leaf Cushions were cut out using my Cricut Maker and its rotary cutter blade. The game changer for me between the Cricket Maker and previous Cricut cutting machines is its ability to cut fabric unstabilised with ease, accuracy and speed.
DIY Painted Terracotta Plant Pots – with Herb Puns is a paid collaboration with Bostik. If you are anything like me then you will have some of those supermarket herbs on your windowsill and these DIY painted plant pots are a great way to keep them, rather than in their sad black plastic pots with cellophane wrappers.
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine. This Iron on Umbrella DIY is a quick project and a great way to put a happy slant on a rainy day. I have always been a fan of personalised items and love how easy and quick it is to make my own customised umbrella using iron on vinyl with the Cricut Maker and The Cricut EasyPress 2.
Magnetic Pin Bowl Tutorial is a paid collaboration with Bostik. I have been lusting after a magnetic pin bowl for my sewing for ages, but at around £15 for a pretty pink or blue polka dot one, they were out of my price range, especially when you can pick up a deep red car parts dish for less than £4!
DIY Leather Wrapped Hip Flask is a paid collaborative post with Bostik. I love adding handmade touches to gifts or even better making them from scratch but I do find guy gifts really challenging especially as I want to gift something that will be used and not just popped in a drawer until declutting takes place.
DIY Cord Tacos or Cord Organisers are a super fun gift to make and so useful. I love making personalised homemade gifts and these cute little DIY Cord organisers are so simple to make and handy too. They are perfect for storing your earbuds or charging cords and stopping them from getting tangled up.
As my boys’ get older encouraging them to be creative is becoming harder and hard but they both loved making these DIY etched wooden heart keyrings perhaps it had something to do with the fact that they were using a burning tool! I am warning you this is so addictive we now want to etch everything that is wooden! So hold on to your hats folks as this is a great craft for older kids and adults alike.
These DIY name key fobs are paid collaboration with Sugru. I am delighted to share with you a fabulous DIY name key fob made from Sugru, which is a fab mouldable glue that turns to rubber, which means that the key fobs are really hardwearing and look amazing. Plus they are so much fun to make with the kids.
