Hello, beautiful people and welcome back to my corner of the web! Today, we’re countering the Monday blues by skipping work and crafting – so chuck on some comfy loungewear and join me! (Kidding, kidding – I renegotiated my weekly day off to be on a Monday because . . . well, okay, kind of because I wanted to craft. So sue me.)
I’m so excited for today’s post. It’s a perfect combination of my two loves, bullet journalling and crafting, and hopefully you guys are going to love it too. Now, I just want to preface this post with an apology – I got the idea for this off another blogger’s Art Bucketlist post, but didn’t save the link and can’t properly credit. If it’s your post, please let me know and I’ll link the original!
That said, the purpose of today’s post is two things:
My crafting bucketlist is exactly what it sounds like – all the crafts I want to attempt (ideally in the next month or two!) and the inspiration behind them.
Firstly, let’s chat about today’s spread!
WHAT I USED:
(Yes, I bought the stickers from the stationery wishlist I posted. They’re fabulous, I adore them and I fully intend to post a haul about it.)
If you’re interested in bullet journalling, or if you just enjoy videos, please check out my Bullet Journal Set-Up Video! I basically just go over everything in this post but audibly. (If you watch it, I’d love some feedback! I’m always looking for ways to improve my video editing and creation.)
Now, what you’re all here for . . . the upcoming crafts!
I stole this inspiration from an old Urban Outfitters room divider and I am excited. Have I ever attempted macrame? Nope. Have I already got the IKEA IVAR units I need to recreate it? Absolutely.
Are you all as obsessed with these vintage apothecary drawers as I am? I am getting all the witchy vibes and I’m all the way here for it. Personally, I’m going to make a couple of tweaks to this DIY – crsytal handles and a darker wood finish to name a few! – but I really love it as a starting point.
Admittedly, this is far less glamourous than the other DIYs – but it would be really damn useful. I live with my boyfriend and as *legitimate adults* we have things like receipts and cleaning rosters that we need to keep track of.
I want to create something super cute and ideally with a climbing plant . . . but I need our foster dog to get adopted first because the wire mesh I bought for this is currently being used as a doggie gate.
Next up on the list is possibly the easiest DIY planter of all time (behind my mannequin planter, of course). All you need are five tiles, some hot glue and that’s it! I love this because, while you could go for the whole Moroccan theme, you could easily pick tiles that suit your own colour scheme too!
I love a good upcycle. It’s challenging (in a fun way) to repurpose an old item and give it new life – but it’s good for the planet and your pockets. Again, this is a craft that you could so easily customise with different handles, a lick of paint or even some wallpaper!
If you enjoyed this post, make sure you’re following my Bullet Journalling and DIY Pinterest boards for more like it!
Alright loves – that’s about it from me today! Which of these projects are you most excited for? Would you try any yourself? Let me know your thoughts down below!
