DIY Craft Bucket List

You could be "so Pinterest" too.

For those who don’t know me that well, I love to craft. Only problem: I’m not that crafty. BUT that doesn’t stop me from trying every once and awhile. This past weekend I was on Pinterest, as per usual, and came across some crafts that made my heart skip a beat because it made me so excited to try them out. So here are six DIYs that are perfect for a sunny afternoon and super fun to finally cross off of your DIY bucket list!

1. Balloon Dart Painting

This has been on my bucket list ever since 2001 when I first saw Princess Diaries. It is a bit more work than some of the other crafts but it is so worth it! I mean who doesn’t want to skip princess lessons for some dart painting?

2. Coffee Themed Mugs

Making cute mugs are one of the easiest DIYs that are affordable and enjoyable. So how can you make it better? Express how much you love coffee on your own mug! For my own taste I love writing funny puns or if I’m feeling especially motivational I’ll try out an elaborate design.

3. Crayon Art

This is such a cool experience! I will warn you though that it is a lot of work. I made my sister a crayon art project last year for her birthday and while it turned out pretty well, I was a bit in over my head. I highly recommend using a lighter to melt the crayons instead of a blow dryer unless you want the melted crayon to splatter everywhere! Otherwise it is a really fun craft and the outcome is legit.

4. String Art

I’ve never attempted this craft mainly because I was told it takes an exceptional amount of time to make, especially if you are a perfectionist like me. However, I am determined to try it out because the outcome is out of this world. There is also a scale of easy to difficult types of string art that you can find for your choosing.

5. Chalkboard ANYTHING

If you didn’t know, chalkboard anything is a huge trend right now. We are craving a time where times were simpler with just a piece of chalk and chalkboard, plus it looks super cute. What is even better is that they have made chalkboard markers so you don’t have to listen to that cringe worthy sound of chalk on a chalkboard. I highly recommend this activity because my sister is proof of making anything on chalkboard look amazeballs.

6. Shadow Box

I love shadow boxes and the meaning behind them. I’ve never made one myself but I have such respect for those who make them because the sentimental value to each of them is all unique. I know it can take some time to gather up materials to set out so that can be hard, but otherwise it is a priceless gift for anyone who receives one.

I hope this has encouraged y’all to find your nearest craft store, grab a friend, and make something during a sunny summer afternoon!

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.
