Perhaps you’ve already turned to Pinterest for ideas and DIY projects and are looking to take things up a notch. Maybe you’ve tried making some of these Pinterest-worthy DIYs but looking for the right supplies—or just figuring out where to start—is keeping you from finishing them. Luckily, there are tons of DIYs you can make at home, many of which are quick and easy to make.

The best part of DIY projects is that they usually require very little investment. The tools required are usually something you already have lying around your house. And most DIY projects can take less than a day to complete. So, what do you do when you want to create something but don’t have the time or money to invest in something custom-made? Well, the answer is DIY.

Here’s What Can I Make at Home DIY:

  • Paper Towel Roll Castle. 

Have you ever wanted to make a paper towel roll castle? Well, here is your chance. All you need are paper rolls, tape, and scissors. Cut an arch out of the middle of the toilet paper roll and cut out the end of the rolls. One of the most important things for a toddler is entertainment. As a parent, you want to provide as many outlets as possible for your little one to explore and have fun. Paper towel roll tubes are a great DIY toy that will take your little one’s imagination to new heights. There are endless possibilities, from houses to food to animals.

  • Newspaper Seed-Starter Pots. 

This time of year, the weather is cold, days are short, and there’s still a lot of work to do. You don’t want to spend a ton of money on new seed-starter pots (let alone the cost of growing seeds), but you still want to be able to grow your favourite plants. Stop buying those expensive starter pots! You can make your own seed-starter pots using recycled newspaper. It’s a fun activity, cheap, and is a good way to recycle. No need to buy that expensive seed-starter pot! How about starting your growing adventure with newspaper seed starters? These pots are easy to make at home with newspaper and are just the right size for starting seeds. The pots provide great drainage and an inexpensive way to try your hand at starting seeds indoors. Best of all, you can create a backup supply using the newspaper you already have lying around.

  • Blue Monogrammed String Art. 

String art is a craft that can be easy to do at home. The supplies are simple, the process is fairly easy, and the results are beautiful.

  • Picture Perfect Pom-Poms in Minutes. 

Pom-poms are an old-fashioned craft found in every craft store’s crafting section. But they’re making a comeback, appearing in everything from DIY home decor to “pom-pompuccino” drinks. They take minutes to make, so they are a great activity for younger crafters. They’re also fun for older kids who want to make their own gifts or decoration.

  • Cardboard Tube Seed-Starting.

We often know what we want but can’t buy what we want. We have ideas for household DIY projects but lack the time and skill to take on a big project like a kitchen or bathroom remodel. And, sometimes, all you really need is a few small changes to turn your house into a home.
