Hand-painted mandala stool

You will need:

  • light-colored wooden stool
  • A pair of compasses
  • A pencil
  • A selection of acrylic paints
  • A medium acrylic paint brush
  • A white waterproof marker

Instructions:

First, wipe the surface of the stool with a damp cloth, ensuring that there are no stains, grease, or specs of dust. Then, draw several circles on top of the chair, using the compasses. We opted for 6, but you can add as many as you like. With a pencil, make a rough sketch of your mandala’s design on the stool. If you’re not sure how to get started, check out some of our DIY articles for inspiration and tips.

Once the design of your mandala has been finalized, start adding colors of your choice until the entire top surface of the tool is covered in paint. Then, leave it to dry overnight.

When the stool has dried completely, add details, using a white permanent marker. Leave aside for a few hours and then place in your favorite spot!

And to make things easier, here is a comprehensive step-by-step of the entire process:

How to transform your home with DIY:

Keep the summer in room all year round, with these adorable baskets, decorated like fruit! 

What you will need:

Instructions:

Strawberry: Take the green felt and the scissors, and cut 4-5 tear drop leaf shapes. Using the glue gun, attach the shapes to the outer rim of the pastel pink basket. Next, cut out around 50 small, seed-shaped pieces of white felt. Stick them across the whole body of the basket, to make it look like a strawberry.

Pineapple: Using the scissors, cut out two shapes, resembling the crown of a pineapple, out of green felt – one smaller, and one slightly larger. Take the smaller one and stick it on the inside of the orange basket’s opening, near the rim. Try to stick the edges of the felt crown close to each other, so as to create a crease in the middle. Once done, attach the larger felt cutout behind the smaller one, using the glue gun.

Your fruit-inspired clothes baskets are ready! If you like, you can use baskets and felt in different colors, to create various types of fruit, such as watermelon, orange and more.

Easy, fast and very effective!

And now, we have a great suggestion for those of you who’d like to create some unique wall decorations!

What you’ll need:

  • Several sheets of card in different shades of green
  • A pencil
  • A pair of cissors
  • Glue
  • A pack of adhesive foam squares
  • Some white card
  • A photo frame

Instructions:

Draw the outlines of different palm leaves and branches on pieces of card in various shades of green. If you need some help, you can use a stencil. Carefully cut the shapes out with scissors, trying to be as precise as possible.

Take a piece of white card, making sure it is as big as the inside of the frame you are planning to use. Glue the darkest branch-shaped cutouts onto the white card, and then stick some palm leaf shapes on top of them, using adhesive foam squares, so as to create a 3D effect. Once done, frame the collage and hang it on your wall.

First, trace the palm leaf outlines:

  • 3-4 pieces of natural driftwood (preferably smoother, and lighter if possible)
  • A can of gold spray paint
  • Some hemp rope

Select several pieces of driftwood, preferably in different sizes. Take the first piece and, using a mini drill, make holes near its ends. Cut a strip of hemp rope and slide it through both holes.

After the painting process, leave your jewelry stand to dry overnight, and then hang it in your room.  Repeat this process with the other pieces of driftwood until you get the desired number of jewelry stands.
