Feeling Crafty? Here Are 3 DIY Projects Using Minimal Materials

If you’re in the mood to be a little artsy, harness that creativity with a fun DIY project. These projects require minimal artistic ability and few materials, so you probably already have everything you need to make at least one of them.

Paper Dahlias [HGTV]
If you have a cardboard cake circle, break it out. But if not, you can easily trace your own on a piece of cardboard. Beyond that, you just need a few pieces of paper (scrapbooking paper works best), double-sided tape, and a pair of scissors. After you cut the paper into squares, you’ll roll them into cones and then affix them to the cardboard circle. This video tutorial makes it easy to complete the task and create a beautiful new piece of decor.

Vintage Tin Can Vases [The Graphics Fairy]
If you’ve recently used some canned goods, fish the empty cans out of your recycling and upcycle them instead! Once you peel off the labels, use white or black paint to coat the cans and, if you have candle wax available, follow the instructions to distress the cans. Then print out vintage Parisian-inspired labels and use ModPodge to stick them on the cans. Voila! Vases for fresh flowers, small succulents, or anything else that needs storage.

Desk Accessory Set [HGTV]
This is another good option if you’re looking for ways to make use of empty cans or jars—and if your home office needs some help. Really any empty glass, plastic, or metal containers you have on hand will work, given that they’re about the right size for storing your desktop necessities, like pens and pencils. Although this tutorial calls for spray paint, you can use a brush and paint to complete the project indoors. It’s as simple as stripping the labels off of your containers, coating them with white paint (or really any hue), and adding embellishments, like ribbon.
