I’ve been writing this craft blog for 10 years and I’ve loved it! Writing is only half the fun though. Coming up with new and exciting craft projects to share and creating new things is even more enjoyable. That’s why I wanted to share this post with all of my favorite crafts from the last decade! I hope it inspires you make new things and maybe even spend time with friends while you do it.
Ok let’s get started!
DIY Glass Keychain
These DIY glass orb keychains are quick and easy put together. They also make a cute gift! Customize them however you’d like. I used scrapbook paper in mine, but you can add pictures, maps, or anything else that might be of interest.
DIY Succulent Planter from Beer Cans
If you know me, you know that I love an upcycling project! These adorable succulent planters are made from old beer cans. They’re perfect because there’s always a beer can in someone’s house and people love plants. Be sure to pick a can with cool art. They look great on the windowsill also!
DIY Car Garbage Bag from Duck Tape
I made this Duck Tape garbage bag in 2015 and still use it to this day. It probably needs a face lift now but it functions well and fits perfectly in my car. If you haven’t made one, I highly recommend it.
Polka Dotted Gift Card Holder
It seems like everyone I know likes getting gift cards and I really hate handing someone that store-bought packaging. A couple of years ago, I decided to make my own gift card envelopes and I’ve never looked back!
Painted End Tables
I’ve had these old end tables since college. They still serve their purpose, but they’re a bit of a time warp. I decided to give them a makeover and love the result! Look at the image above. The left is the before and the right is the painted end table.
Upcycled Travel Tin
Convert any old Altoid tin into a travel case for small items. I use mine for hair ties and added a magnetic strip for bobby pins. This lives in my purse or on my dresser and get used daily. Oh, and it still looks just as good as the day I made it.
Citrus Mint Lip Balm
I started making my own lip balm in 2013 and never looked back. This is my favorite recipe: Citrus Mint.
Manly Beard Oil
It might seem odd that as a woman, one of my favorite craft projects is beard oil, but I’ve actually learned that I can use it as a facial moisturizer as well. I’ve made this for my husband and have stolen it multiple times. It smells wonderful!
Photo coasters are the cutest! Know someone who is getting married? Get their engagement photos and make these. Same with having a baby, going to college, or any major life event. It’s a sentimental gift that will be much appreciated.
I hope you’ve found a craft project in this list to do on your own or with friends. It’s always fun to do these types of projects with other people while listening to your favorite music or watching a series.
