Some simple DIY craft projects include customized welcome mats, photo frames made with foam stickers, and creative chalk boards made from mismatched plates. Each idea requires limited materials and only a small amount of time.
To make a custom doormat, purchase a plain fiber doormat, a stencil, acrylic paint and a paintbrush. Using the paint and stencil, create a design on the doormat, and allow it to dry. Place the doormat outside as an attractive greeting for guests.
To create customized chalkboards, buy chalkboard paint and a paintbrush at a local craft store. Choose one or more old plates then apply the paint to the plate, ensuring that there's a large enough area to write on. Keep the customized plate as a memo board for your home, or create several chalkboards to give as gifts. Consider adding additional embellishments with hot glue to further customize the plates.
Decorate unique photo frames by purchasing wooden photo frames, foam stickers, acrylic paint and a paintbrush at a craft store. Paint the frames, allow them to dry, then use the foam stickers to decorate them. Consider using hot glue or craft glue to attach the stickers so that they are more durable. Add a favorite photo then display the frame at home or give it as a gift.
