I’m so excited to bring back one of my favorite series on the the blog where I share the latest artists, makers, trends and products I’m Head Over Heels for. Today, I wanted to share a fabulous DIY blogger whose photography and projects almost always make me think “oooh! I want to make that.” Marlene, creator of Idle Hands Awake has got easy and modern DIY projects to make us all feel like creative super stars! I adore Marlene’s clean aesthetic and simple style, and I think you will too!
It was hard to limit my love, but here are my Top 6 DIY’s that I think you must try:
I love the how the combination of brass and leather textures compliment each other. It’s the perfect balance of modern and minimalism. Maybe if my keys were this lovely, I wouldn’t lose them so often!
Who doesn’t love to take something old, and make something new? It doesn’t have to be a big change either. Adding a simple touch of leather to these wooden storage boxes results in something lovely.
How about starting your day with a breath of fresh lavender and eucalyptus? Simple store this sweet smelling sachets in your dresser drawers and getting dressed every morning will be a breeze!
Who wouldn’t love to have these trendy triangles dangling from their ears? Marlene may have created them for St. Patty’s Day, but I think they are the perfect splash of color for anytime of the year.
I love these coasters because of their modern graphic feel. They are a perfect way to spruce up your living room without much effort at all!
Finally, how cute would this little jar be on your counter? Keep it out in the open to remind you to spend time with your someone special. And of course, doing something better than a Netflix binge of your go-to show.
In conclusion, need ideas? Marlene at Idle Hands Awake has got a whole bunch of modern DIY projects you!
