Girls will be girls, and there’s nothing quite like personalising your space. Here’s 10 incredibly cute DIY projects for girls, from tweens to teens.
1# Flower Lights
Oh Happy Day
These pretty flowery lights are made from coloured cupcakes and a string of plain fairy lights.
2# Hanging Jewellery Organiser
Use a wooden coat hanger to create a jewellery organiser. Just screw in a series of little hooks and eyes to hang necklaces and earrings from.
3# Pom Pom Rug
Make a pompom rug using ready-made pompoms, alternatively make lots of different size pompoms from scraps of wool.
4# Selfie Wall
Create your own selfie wall. Use painted picture frames to hold the selfie-photos or just make a random large wall collage.
5# Chandelier Made of Bubbles
Use clear plastic baubles, (the sort used to make your own Christmas tree decorations), tie them to varying lengths of fishing line to achieve an amazing bubble chandelier.
6# Custom Mirror
You can use just about anything you like to make your own customised mirror. Chose painted clothes pegs, buttons, shells, old jewellery, etc.
Not on The High Street
Actual confetti is a bit small for decorating walls. Make your own from pretty paper or ‘cheat’ and buy confetti wall decals or self-adhesive dots!
8# Coffee Cup With a Message
Get a plain coffee mug and use indelible ink or stencils to write a message.
9# Suitcase Pet Bed
So Creative Things
Use an old suitcase in a size that fits your pet. Cut the lid off, make sure there’s no sharp or snaggy edges left behind. Find a suitable filling, for example an actual pet bed or old duvet etc. and pop it inside. Your pet will love it!
10# iPhone Dock
Factotum of Arts
Make your iPhone a little beanbag to rest on! make a little envelop of rectangular fabric, stuff with little polystyrene balls (or anything else that’s soft and squidgy). Sew a little loop of ribbon on one corner to hold the lead. Nestle your phone into the beanbag so that it doesn’t topple over.
