I've been working on making various stuff recently, for example my new phone case:
I don't really know if anyone else here's into DIY and craft stuff, but I thought it'd be kinda cool to have a thread for it if anyone else wants to join in.
(in part to "steal" everyone's ideas )
Ooooh @Tiny_leaf that is so cool!! I haven't really done much DIY (except I went through a phase of making Christmas cards with my mum, I suppose) but it's something I'm keen to explore!
What other stuff have you made/do you want to make?
That is very cool @Tiny_leaf ,
I hope you post a photo when it is finished!
I haven't done a craft project in ages but I once spent a summer decorating a heap of jars with glitter and mod podge to hold my makeup brushes.
Your photo has made me maybe want to start another project. Do you have a suggestion for someone with beginner DIY abilities?
@Tiny_leaf I love your creative instincts! DIY is the best and I love a good DIY craft activity I am really big into making my own christmas decorations, jewellery and other bits and bobs!
Would love to see more of your DIY projects!

@letitgo I've made a lot of stim toys.
This one's going to be a weighted hedgehog lap pad, I made him out of a car sponge and some gravel, I just need to add eyes and reinforce him a bit.
At the moment I'm trying to figure out how to make some knee pads. Because my legs hate me, I spend a lot of time crawling and kneeling to get around the house, so I kinda need something to make that easier.
@Tasi ooh, that sounds fun!!
A fairly easy one if you have pliers is a marble pendant, you just need a marble and some wire (I personally just de-fluffed some pipe cleaners that were lying around)
Here's a closer up view thanks to a random internet human:
If you're interested, I can find the instructions.
Ohhhh @Tiny_leaf that looks so pretty!! I did a class in highschool were we got to make jewelry so if I can find some pliers I might give that a go!
That would also be a good DIY as a present! I think DIY presents are such a nice gift!
Do you know what your next project will be after your phone case?
