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.
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.
Perfect for fall! This simple glass vase is turned into a pretty fall Hurricane vase centerpiece by using dried beans, popcorn and a fall themed candle.

This adorable trio is made from jello molds, some bolts and a bit of wire. With Halloween just around the corner, it is the perfect project to do now.
See the tutorial at Organized Clutter.This one appeals to the gardener in me. A plain canvas is first sprayed with a solid color, then a leaf is place, and the whole thing painted with a contrast color.
Finally, the leaves are removed and you have great wall art. See the tutorial at My Part of Space.
Looking for a fun way to hold some Halloween candy? This cute candy dish is made from a clay pot and dried flowers in just minutes.
My 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.
These easy DIY candy jars are made from painted wooden candle sticks with glass jars sitting on top.
I can picture them filled with Halloween candy! See them on Bargain Bound.

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!
