As long as I can remember I've been crafty, cutting, pasting, beading, sewing and making a fabulous mess! When I was nine, I set up I cardboard box in the corner of my room, draped it with fabric and turned it into my beading work station. Needless to say, my mum was forever vacuuming beads out of the carpet. In the same year (this was the mid 90s) I became fascinated by recycling and tried for hours to make my own recycled paper. Inspired by the things I loved to do in the 90s, here is a little collection of nostalgic DIYs and lovely things to do, perfect to do with kids on holidays, just to do for a bit of fun or to brighten your day!
Make handmade paper
Make a friendship bracelet
Make homemade chalk and draw rainbows on the pavement
Make your own fort (here's mine)
Make library card notebooks
Paint your nails like strawberries
Make your notebooks pretty (my DIY on One Sheepish Girl)
Hope you have a wonderful day, whatever you get up to! I'm off to Spotlight to buy some beads and try out this daisy chain bracelet.
