52 Weeks of DIY Projects and Ideas

Hello and welcome to Drawn to DIY!

Last week, I posted a brush lettering printable for small letters

Today, I'm sharing 52 projects and ideas for a whole year's worth of DIY-ing and crafting!

This week marks Drawn to DIY's one year anniversary (hooray!) and while it's still hard to believe it's made it this far, more than anything I want to share with you some inspiration to continue to live creatively.

52 Weeks of DIY Projects and Ideas | @DrawntoDIY

I have so much respect for DIY bloggers, especially the ones who have been doing it for more than a year. In itself, blogging regularly is already a huge feat but when you consider all the effort that goes in — 1.) constantly coming up with ideas, 2.) scouring for materials, 3.) gathering props, 4.) making the actual DIY, 5.) photographing the process AND product, and 6.) editing the photos — you can't help but appreciate DIY blogging a lot more... and wonder how they do it and how they make the time!

For this reason, I thought to share 52 DIY projects and ideas categorized according to the material used. This way, even if you're not a DIY blogger but simply *drawn to DIY* ;) , you can be inspired to come up with your own projects after going through this list. 

After all, DIY-ing doesn't always mean creating brand new things. Sometimes, it's a simple matter of using the same material in a different way. Just take it from me — If I can do it, then I'm 100% sure anyone can DIY and anyone can be creative. :)
