This week’s Roundup of DIY Projects from around the web is a little bit fun, a lot playful, and definitely colorful! I love some of these new uses for items I hadn’t ever considered…you will see what I mean…

Fabric Printing is something I am eager to dive into. Not only for the creative outlet it brings, but also for the dramatic savings involved in creating my own patterned fabric. I love a good thirty DIY Project, and of course I am a starving artist at heart, just dying to break free and join the ranks of the indie handmade creatives. I know you all love the paper poms and flowers, so why not wool?

This coffee filter lantern takes coffee filter crafts to a whole new level and as far as I can tell from the ingredients involved, seems like it will actually function as well! Yahoo! Yarn, oh bright, sweet, fun yard used as a decorative touch on these fabulous gift boxes. I adore this idea and think it’s a fun and inexpensive way to add something really interesting to a simple box.

That Martha, she’s such a genius with her craft punches in patterns… it makes a traditional paper link garland something special, does it not? Cute for a spring time garland or party decoration. Don’t even get me started on this shoe organizer planter, vertical gardening, here I come! I mean… if I remember correctly, I am fairly certain some of them are lined with a waterproof lining? Even if they aren’t this is such a fabulous idea for small space gardening or patio gardening! Or gardening in any form, for any darn reason…

I adore this fabulous felt garland and I think this idea would make a incredible children’s mobile if done in varying lengths! I am in love with the hex nut bracelet, and can say it’s not only an amazing bracelet but would also be wonderful as a necklace or little belt. This takes hardware store chic to an extremely fashionable end of the spectrum.
