1. DIY Clothespin Lamp
My teenage daughter was so bored last week she wanted to go shopping and buy a lamp for her bedroom. The weather was terrible and there wasn’t any way I was getting out on those roads. So we started looking online for projects we actually had the materials for. Then we found it! A DIY clothespin lamp, it turned out so cute! She said I didn’t need those clothespins anyway, shes such a character!
2. Pretty Earrings Holder
I am so excited to show you this simple DIY earring holder today for three reasons. It’s simple, it’s inexpensive (under $3 to make) and it’s useful! Earring holders are not that easy to find. And when you do….they can be pricey! So, we thought it would be fun to come up with something an adult or child could use that was practical and not breakable. I found a plastic frame and a plastic canvas I found mine at Michaels. You can spray paint them different colors as well! DIY decor for teens does not get any cuter than this project idea.
3. Pom Pom Mouse Pad
I’m always on the hunt for more ways to use one of my favorite crafting supplies, and I ran across these colorful DIY mouse pads to make as gifts. I made several for friends over the holidays, and of course had to make one for my desk too! Because everyone needs their own pom pom mouse pad, right?! A cute DIY for tweens or teens to make and decorate their desk now that school is back in full force. Now that your computer is set with creative accessories, why not make a DIY laptop bag next?

5. DIY Mini Spring Succulent Planter
What do you do with a bunch of leftover plastic Easter eggs? This mini planter is DIY succulent idea and just may be your perfect answer. If you need some gifts for a group of teachers or girls at work this will work brilliantly and is cheap and easy to assemble. I used some old Krylon spray paint I had in the garage to paint the egg halves and glued them to little stands, then used succulent clippings I got from my garden. The whole project cost no money at all and looked like a really expensive, well thought out elegant DIY gift idea for teens to give or receive. You can’t go wrong with this DIY mini planter idea.
6. Anthropologie Inspired DIY Turban Headband
I’ve been seeing so many types of these headband turbans on Anthropologie. I just had to try and DIY one myself, it seemed easy enough, the only problem was that I didn’t have any nice fabric to use. So I just grabbed my plain white fabric, and tried some patterns and textures to see which one worked best. As you can see I went for a colorful brushed look, and I’m pretty happy with the result. DIY decor ideas for teen girls should start with colorful projects like this one.
7. DIY Neon Triangle Photo Frames
This is an awesome DIY photo project idea, like the Great Pyramids Of Egypt, except with photographs. They look so geometric and modern! If you want simple table art that really makes a grand statement, this is your DIY! Take your favorite Instagram shots or just print some colorful stuff you find online. The triangle shade makes colorful photos and even black and white photographs look really. Cool. With manly photos, I love this as a DIY idea for teen boys room, don’t you?
8. DIY Modern Navy White Cross Pattern Wall Art
Since the holidays are just right around the corner, I find myself wanting to buy a ton of seasonal stuff like things to make holiday wreaths, wrapping paper, and I even almost bought a whole basket full of mini pumpkins I saw at the market today. But no! I was able to resist and only got a few. But anyway, I told myself I won’t buy any more craft supplies, even from the dollar store, until I’ve exhausted some of the stash of crafty stuff I already have. So this project uses up some of the same exact materials I’ve used for my recent DIY art project, but in a different way. I was inspired by the Swiss cross pattern that you might typically see in black and white, or maybe in red in white. To mix it up I chose the color navy, which to me kind of gives it a more masculine feel, don’t you think? You could also do this project in black and white, or even a bright or pastel pink or yellow would be awesome I bet!
9. Cute Floral Brooch
In the old vintage style dapper gentlemen would wear a flower on their lapel on any given day. Brooches are always a fun fashion accessory for me, so why not combine two of my favorite things together into a floral brooch? With a small vessel for water, it can be worn for both a special occasion or really for any day you just feel like bringing a little sprig of sunshine wherever you go. It’s extra fun when you can pull the flowers from your own garden too!
10. Colorfully Painted Lazy Susan
Almost everything in my craft room is colorful as all get out. I’ve had a hand-me-down raw wood lazy susan on my craft room desk for years, and just now got to Mad in Craft-ing it up. I love my craft room decorating projects because I tend to take more risks on projects that will be confined to my workspace. These projects can be as garish and crazy as I feel like because I’m the only person who has to look at them. Hence this colorfully painted Lazy Susan project was born!
10. Giant Bow Necklace
Today I am sharing this super fun Giant Bow Necklace with you. I wanted something fun and festive to wear for my birthday and what better than a giant girly bow, and since I don’t do a ton of hair accessories I figured a necklace would be perfect! I love how this piece turned out, I can’t wait to wear it! So check this DIY giant bow necklace out, it’s sunning!
