For many of us, weekends are to relax and recharge after a long week at work. For others, they’re the perfect opportunity to spend time with our family and loved ones. When it comes to spending quality time together, sometimes watching a simple movie together doesn’t cut it. Think about it – would you rather do something fun together, or sit next to each other while your attention is fixed on the movie?
Doing some easy arts and crafts can be a great opportunity to spend quality time with your family. Not only that, but you can also make something beautiful to decorate your home with later.
If you’re looking for lazy DIY ideas, look no further! Keep reading for some of the most fun and low effort things you can make in your free time.
If you’re a fan of creating art in unexpected ways,you should do some texture collages. These collages are a great way to use common materials you’d find in the household like crumpled newspaper, cardboard, old bits of cloth, adn paper mache, and turn them into beautiful works of art that you can display around the house.
Not only are they extremely easy to make, but they’re also versatile. You can make collages that fit a certain aesthetic, shape them into landscapes or more elaborate scenes, or even keep them simple and fun. Add glitter, or ribbons or beads to the collage, or don’t add anything at all and keep it simple. The possibilities are endless!
Customize Your Phone Case
Who doesn’t want a cute phone case they made themself? If you’re free this weekend, get yourself a very basic one and give it your own personal touch. You can get your hands on some basic acrylic paints, get a paintbrush and do whatever you want with your phone cover.
You can make anything from a basic and colorful polka dot pattern, or some stripes, to painting an elaborate scene on the cover. Once you’re done, let the paint dry and then put two coats of transparent nail-polish over it to seal the deal. Now you have an evening well-spent and some cute phone covers!
Making bracelets is some of the easiest craft out there, not to mention that it’s fast once you get the hang of it. There are countless tutorials available online on how to make them, and you can use a number of different materials.
Yoru options range from making bracelets out of ribbons, thread, pieces of fabric, and anything else you can braid together. Some people even like to make bracelets out of aluminium wire, and add beads and gems to their creations.
It depends on how much effort you’re willing to put into your creations, but the end result is going to be beautiful no matter how simple.
Redo Old Clothes
A little fabric paint or dye, a basic t-shirt, and even some needle and thread might be the perfect way to spend your weekend. You can draw flowers, some cool flames, go for something elaborate or just draw your name on your clothes and decorate it.
This is the perfect opportunity for you to add your own touch to something in your closet, and it’s much easier than looking for it online.
