With the arrival of good weather and, for many, the holidays, we like to do handmade things we are bitten by the bug of preparing beautiful things and if they can be with the kids in the house, better than better. There are many free hours in the summer of children that we can occupy with crafts. They love them and so do we.
Therefore, reviewing one of the blogs that I like the most to inspire me, Design Mom, today I propose a DIY ideas MIX , which are perfect for sharing time with the kids, and also, they will make our homes look very personal and low cost. Do we start
Tutorial to make boxes for fruits, snacks ...
We are in summer and want to eat out. A good idea to renew the utensils that we use in the tables of terraces and gardens, can be these handmade boxes, made from paper plates. Perfect for kids to get their hands dirty and we "decorate" without fear a fun series to use this summer. Suitable for kids!
Spoons and decorated wooden forks
These wooden spoons for the kitchen we had already shared on one occasion, but they are so beautiful to take them out in summer, it is worth remembering this DIY. They are made with an engraving punch. A tool that heats up (eye, which can burn and is not suitable for children) and with it we can do different shapes in the wood, getting amazing drawings and figures. For the initiation in this technique, a good idea is the points, which remain as moles on the wood. Very original, right?
Lowcost tip: If we do not want to make the investment, because it is something that we will use only this time, another option is to use a normal punch that we will heat, for example, with the flame of a burning candle. The technique would be the same, but a little slower, since we will have to heat the tip every little while.
Tissue Paper Bowls
It sounds incredible, because it is a material with very little consistency, but it is as I tell you: paper-based decorating bowls. The truth is that it is a simplest tutorial and that depending on the colors we use of tissue paper, they will be perfect for different uses. Colorines, for casual spaces; gray and black, for more sophisticated or Nordic environments.Suitable for kids!.
Simply I imagine this idea in an ephemeral decoration, to surprise at a dinner or lunch on the terrace, or place lights strategically in the garden. Summer invites everything related to ice and this tutorial, where they tell us how to make a garland of lights with ice balls, is really great. Suitable for kids!.
Boxes for a lowcost shelf
Firms like Mutto or Seletti make us fall in love with their designs and with those modular shelves to which we give ourselves the form that best suits us at home. Boxes and more stacked boxes, of different sizes that end up forming a perfect set. If we like them, but we want a low-cost idea, this tutorial where they teach us how to make the boxes, is perfect.
Nordic tea towels
We have more than seen the clipped potato tutorial. This time what used to stamp is pen paper, that cut in circles, zigzag ... Then place the silhouette in a tampon, and voila! With a bit of textile paint, they make perfect tea towels to renew household linen. Original, simple and easy. Of course, Suitable for kids!.
