DIY projects are great for so many reasons. For the family to have fun on a weekend when nothing is planned.

Or perhaps to keep your creativity afloat, wishing to spruce up your living areas.
These top 10 projects for your home have terrific little ideas that will not mean loads of special tools, money, or time. Most could be done in one day or at the most a couple of days depending on your wish to finish it.
We hope that this will inspire you to get your hands a little dirty, and be proud of something you have done yourself, saved money, and talk about.
How to Paint Crisp Stripes

If you’re after adding a little 3D effect on your walls without having to spend your life’s savings, then adding stripes onto the wall really does the trick. Any colors, any thickness on any walls around the house, let your imagination loose with this one. Preferably, start on the main wall first before wishing to cover all the walls with the same stripes artwork. It could soon get too much, recommending to leave the others pain but to dress up the one. This could all be done in the morning, so get the coffee on.

We are getting used to the fact that at work, we tend to be more organized than in our home. And why so. We reckon we should be even more organized in our home to ensure perfect serenity and communication making everyday life better planned, with obligations out of the way before things pile up. So, this is a fun way to get creative and to make sure to always be on top of our paperwork. Might not fit in a closet so put it somewhere where you are obliged to pass it many times a day!

If you have a spare weekend from going to many places making the most of it and opting for a quiet morning and afternoon at home, then this is a great little project. And one your kids will love. So we believe there is no excuse not to give this a go! Super easy and super satisfying. This wreath would make an empty wall look rather cool, especially having made it yourself. Get the creativity out of the children too and make them understand the importance of recycling at the same time.

If you have children then without a doubt they’ll be spare crayons for this one. What is great about this craft, is that you could also use the used crayons without necessarily buying new ones. So, the recycling challenge is accepted. And, this too can be done with the kids at home. A perfect way to synergize a hobby and a great way to find out on a personal level things about your child or children while playing around melting things. Lovely! This could look great on a white wall that derived a little sprucing up.

Some of us might wish to opt for a more minimalist approach and wish to do something with the overflowing creams, hair products, toothbrushes and so much more all within your bathroom sink! We have all been there, trying to pile up “cleanly” and effectively so much stuff onto such a tiny space. Well, no more! Get organized by having a little DIY couple of days. This can be life-changing. It will look great and you will be proud again to use your personal beauty creams and your general bathroom items you may hold. You could even look at wooden boxes for wine for example to put your linen…just another idea.
Mason Jar Lights
There are so many jars one person can have. Every now and then we find products we require in the most beautiful mason jars. But, you ran out of space in your kitchen on the working surface! So next, we hit the ceiling lights! This is a superb way to recycle, do a little DIY, and also add an industrial touch to your living space if this is what you wish to go for. Choose the perfect LED light bulb being bright or natural sunlike to have a space to be proud of.

Have you ever been to the beach and looked for seashells on the seashore? How many did you pick up as a souvenir? And where are they now? Could be in a draw somewhere one sees every so often. But if you find a gem of a shell and wish to put it forward in a living space, what better than gather the white sand, and build it up in an apothecary jar. It would look great in any room being a bedroom or in a living room as the table centerpiece. What is great about this, is that you will always see the memory of the provenance of the shells and the sand. Happy memories.
