Inspiring DIY Projects (with Pinterest)

Hello everyone! Thank you for your encouraging and sweet feedback under my last blogpost, you made me happy! :) This time, I have a great collection of DIYs for you for your next creative afternoon or craft party.
Yippie! I am teaming up with Pinterest to show you some of my DIY boards in order to give you some inspiration for upcoming projects. As most of you know, I spend much time on my own Pinterest profile, collecting and curating inspiring content and browsing for upcoming projects.
Thus, my collection of tutorials has grown and I want to share some of my fave boards with you, paired with matching DIY ideas which I have already done in the past. :)

Last spring when it became warmer, I have turned my balcony into a green oasis and planted lots of colorful flowers and fresh herbs and veggies.

For more balcony, plants and garden inspiration, have a look at the board which I have created for this topic and which has helped me to improve my green thumb. :)

What about an upcycling pen holder as a quick afternoon project? This one is made from a bottle.

If you are simply looking for a random DIY project, you can find hundreds of wonderful ideas on my board. There's everything from making bird houses over concrete tutorials to weaving DIYs. Simply have a look and get inspired.

Another easy and quick idea is making a faux leather envelope, for example as business card holder.
Find more inspiration for (faux) leather projects on my board which is full of accessory tutorials, jewellery DIYs and other pretty craft projects.

Having a crush on felt as awesome material to work with? Learn how to make a felt kitty cat needle case.
Find more cool felt DIY projects on my board.

Learn how to make your own geometrical wooden necklace.

If you can't get enough of jewellery DIYs and want to see many versatile projects, look at my pinboard.

Last year, I taught you about the nautical rope bracelets. They are still part of my fave DIYs so far. :)

On Pinterest you'll find a lot more wonderful projects with ropes and knots.

What about making a tulip paper flower bouquet in spring?
Here you'll find many inspiring DIYs with colorful paper flowers in all kinds of shapes and sizes. This is so much fun!

Eeeeks, one of my fave DIYs ever: a handpainted camera pillow.
Wanna learn about how to make plushes, toys or dolls? ;) Check out my board.

One of my fave weekend projects for a long time has been making rubber stamps myself.

Get inspired by all those rubber stamp tutorials and inspiring images.

Let's go and make your own drop shaped rattle or pillow case.
Here's the right place for sewing love.

Spring and summer are coming soon, my bright handprinted textiles are just perfect for the warm season!

Yippie, I'm super inspired and wanna start crafting immediately.
