There’s a good chance that you—yes, you!—might be feeling a little down this time of year. The holiday parties are over, the days off from work are pretty much done, and the nights seemingly stretch on with not much to do.
While we absolutely suggest using the cold winter months to catch up on those books you’ve been meaning to crack (Gone Girl won’t read itself, people), or tucking into a season of a buzzy show (What? You still haven’t started “Homeland?!” ), there’s also another fabulous way to pass the time that’s both easy and fun: DIY projects.
All it takes is a quick trip to your local crafts store and access to a computer to check out the seriously amazing do-it-yourself blogs that are out there, and you’re all set. From making your own wrapping paper, to creating cool jewelry for yourself, the hours will fly by—and you’ll have some cool stuff to show for it!
We scoured our favorite blogs for 15 amazing and easy projects to tackle this winter—and also provided bookmark-ready links to the project’s tutorials. Happy DIYing!
