DIY Projects

DIY (Do It Yourself) has become very popular in recent years, with project ideas & instructions widely available on the internet (such as Pinterest!).

Do you know what’s great about DIY (Do-It-Yourself) projects? Everything. When you make items yourself, you can choose projects that suit your tastes, create them in your choice of colors/textures, and then use them to your heart’s content.

At first, you may have the sense of being out of your comfort zone, but the joy of successfully completing a project on your own can be quite a boost to your confidence.

Examples of DIY projects may include any type of home improvement such as painting, remodeling, tile and mosaic art, furniture building, or fabric arts. The Habitat for Humanity ReStores are a treasure chest of things to buy and create projects with.

Some Ideas Are:

  • Painted Tiles (you can use them as wall décor, beverage coasters, and more)
  • Bedazzled bowling balls (for your garden or landscaping)
  • Painted Doors (headboard for your bed, wall art, benches, etc.)
  • Wreaths (you can use practically anything now and make a cool wreath)
  • Vintage Tea Cup Birdfeeders

The list can go on and on!
