Today we want to present you once again great ideas of easy crafts, handcrafted decorations and functional accessories handmade by yourselves. Don’t hesitate and start taking ideas to make homemade crafts with your family and friends. Sure you will spend an unforgettable time.
Easy crafts with homemade products
Again we can see in the images that it is possible to decorate and give use to products and materials that we think we should throw away, such as eggshells. Look at the design of ornaments in the upper photograph, isn’t it great? If we keep the shells in one piece with the empty interior, these can serve as a container to create mini-scenes inside, it is a really great design.
Crafts with plastic bottles
To be able to carry out the following craft we see above, we will need plastic bottles, glue, and paint. First of all, we have to cut two bottles in half, of which we will keep only the parts of the bottom. To form the piece we must fit the two parts of the bottle with each other, and finally, we only have to decorate it with paintings and place some ornaments on the surface with glue.
Stones decorated with colored mandalas
Another of the easy-to-do craft design is stone decoration. Why not give them more life and color? Above we have a great design of river stones decorated with paintings, but … can you guess what these beautiful drawings are? At first sight, they look like flowers, but in reality, these symmetrical forms are mandalas; symbols of the Buddhist culture that favor meditation in certain religious rituals. You can draw mandalas with acrylic paint pens.
Draw figures on river stones
It is said that when creating and contemplating the mandalas, the human mind gets into a state of relaxation and serenity. The circular drawings of a mandala should symbolize the four cardinal points and therefore the center of the universe. This is a suitable and advisable manual for people of all ages for its healing and relaxing effects.
Simple paper crafts
If a celebration is approaching and there is no budget left for a colorful decoration, it is the perfect occasion to use our imagination to create original and beautiful decorative details. Craft Papers are cheap and easy to find.

If we cut a bottle or a plastic container as we see in the image above we will obtain an original basket to store toys, keys or bathroom utensils.
Vases made with plastic bottles
We often use a plastic bottle cut like a vase, but why not turn them into real vases worthy of guns? In this image, you can see the original ways of doing it. You can use a soldering iron to make designs on bottle. And then a spray paint may do the rest.
Crafts with plastic bottles
For this Diy project, you need a plastic bottle and gift ribbon. The bottle should be cut in half, and then strips, as we see in image number 4. Then we must twine the tape around the strips of the bottle. The result will be an original decorative basket.
Plastic bottles cut and used as containers
This is undoubtedly one of the simplest projects that can be done with recycled plastic bottles. It is about removing containers to turn them into pens or into glasses for hygiene or bath products. For this, we only have to cut and smooth the cutting corners with a plate.

Easy craftsmanship as a family
Small storage for clothes or towels is functional and necessary in every home. We can create a storage box for clothes with a cardboard box and some cloth.
The decorative posters for the wall can be made of all kinds of materials: wood, cardboard, fabrics, etc. We can decorate our room or decorate a birthday party with them.
The centerpieces are decorative elements that embellish the family or friends’ meetings. We can always use our creativity and recycling to make amazing crafts.
It isn’t necessary to spend money to make a beautiful decoration on the table; let’s use the products and materials that we have at home.
We also think the idea of ornamenting the decorative items that we already have is great. Sometimes a touch of paint is enough to give a new life to any object that is aged or worn out by time.
In this image, we can see a great organizer for materials and sewing tools. It is also ideal for bath products, kitchen spices or work tools.
