Easy DIY Craft Projects to Brighten up Your Home

It is always fun to find easy DIY craft projects to brighten up the look of a home. 

When a home decor project is easy to do, takes very little time and still looks great, that is a win, win, win my book.

Are you a crafter?  I have been interested in crafting pretty much my whole life.  One of my favorites was always needlepoint projects.

My eyes are not what they used to be, so now when I think crafts, I think something easy to do that is also easy on the eyes.

Easy DIY craft projects to spruce up your home.

Brighten up your home with one of these easy DIY craft projects.

But easy to do does not have to mean that it is not pretty and functional as well. 

Here are some projects that are quick and easy and also would look great in and around your home. See how to make it here.Finished hurricane lamp centerpiece

Finally, the leaves are removed and you have great wall art.  See the tutorial at My Part of Space.Finished clay pot pumpkin

Copper Wire StarsMy friend Jacki at Blue Fox Farm came up with this rustic copper wire star project.  It would make a great decoration for the upcoming festive season.

Jacki suggests using it for a wreath that looks like it needs a little extra something, or in a bare spot on your mantle. 

You can see her tutorial on Blue Fox Farm.

Easy DIY craft projects for kids

Doing kids crafts with children is a lot of fun. It requires some patience, since children like to have things done quickly but it also teaches patience and builds self esteem.

These easy DIY craft projects are fun to do with children.

Here are some cute kids crafts from around the net that you may want to try with your child.  I love the look of all of them. 

My baby is 23, so I can’t do them with her, but perhaps with a grand child one day!
