I think it’s time for some DIY. Have you been inspired to create anything lately?
Maybe these DIY projects might get the creative juices flowing …
From top left to right:
- Can you believe these Cosmos flowers are made from paper? Susan from A Petal Unfolds (with whom I did an interview here) shares her paper artistry tips on how to make them on her blog. Here she’s teamed them with sprigs of rosemary to make them look deceptively real.
- I love a beautiful napkin but am always too lazy to always wash and iron fabric ones! These colourful tie-dyed watercolour napkins may look so pretty you only want to have them on show but they are easy to make and, I reckon, if you’ve made them yourself you’ll be more than happy to take good care of them. Find out how at I Spy DIY.
- How delicious and healthy this salad looks! Made from roasted carrots, beetroot and fennel with a carrot leaf, orange and hazelnut pesto dressing, it’s inspired by a sustainable ethos of using veggie scraps and leftovers many of us would throw away. Get the recipe and read more about the concept ‘WasteEd’ based in New York at Move Nourish Believe.
- There’s no getting away from the trend of hanging indoor plants and macrame hangers. A 70s craze that shows no signs of fading, macrame satisfies the rope-twister and knot-maker in all of us! Find out how to make your own macrame hanger at Nouba.
