The Best DIYs Of The Week

So many times I have been asked how I keep from running out of ideas for my DIY posts on my blog. And all I can say is, “How do any of us not run out of ideas?!” It seriously boggles my mind sometimes, but then I just brush off the boggled and embrace the crafty creativity! I don’t think I will ever tire of seeing all of the genius that floats around the internet week after week.

This week’s roundup of DIY projects is eclectic, funky, fun and just rad. There are party supplies and decor, games and a few useful things too. My favorite this week though is definitely the papier mache string of lights. Really? How could I not become immediately obsessed? You could use them for so many things! Hang them up for a party or a nice dinner at home, or hang them in your bedroom or nursery. No matter where you put them, I am pretty sure they will make your life better. Even though the lights are my favorite, the rest are all a close second and definitely worth taking a look at.

If you are feeling crafty, or even if you aren’t, this week’s best DIY projects are sure to please. Check them out!
