3 DIY Arts and Crafts Projects Using
When I was in high school I loved buying giant wall stickers to decorate my room. Because of
that, I ended up having more stickers that I want or need. I tried looking for different ways on
how I can put them to good use instead of disposing them to the nearest bin.
After browsing through different blogs and videos, I finally found a way on how to use them. On
one of the articles that I read, it was mentioned that wall stickers can be used in different arts
and crafts projects.
Here are some of the ideas that I really liked (most of them are still on my to-do list):
1. DIY planners and notebooks
Planners can be really expensive if you buy them as the new year approaches. During this time
of the year, you have to worry about other gifts to distribute to family and friends during the
holidays. Since I'm not always busy, I can start making DIY planners and notebooks that I can
give away during special occasions.
Using big stickers, cardboard, and unused coloured papers. You can use big stickers (wrapped
over cardboards) as the covers of the planner. Then cut smaller ones into different shapes and
patterns to decorate the covers and leaves of the notebook or planner.
2. DIY Laptop and phone designs
If you have any stickers of your favourite characters, you can use them to decorate your laptop
and other gadgets. This works best for two-tone stickers since these kinds are easier to cut and
redecorate to fit your style and preference.
For phones, you can decorate clear and single colour phone protectors and cases to avoid
ruining the original design of your phone. Depending on the size of your gadgets, you can cut
big and small patterns that you can use alternately to beautify your gadgets.
3. Personalised travel tags
Show your creativity when you travel by creating personalised travel tags for your luggage and
backpacks. For this project, you can recycle and redecorate old tags or create from other
materials available at home.
You decorate plain rubber ones that are available in stationery stores or create a new one using
different kinds of ribbons. If you choose to go with ribbons, it’s best to use iron-on stickers
instead of plain stickers. This way, you won't have to use additional adhesives and wrappers to
make the tags sturdy.
4. DIY Bookmarks
Upcycle your stickers by making items that you can use daily or give away to your friends during
special occasions. For your book-loving friends, you can create a variety of DIY bookmarks
using your old stickers and some recyclable materials that you can find at home.
Make new bookmarks using cardboard papers and colourful paper clips to make adorable
bookmarks that pop on top of the book. You can also attach magnetic sheets to the stickers to
make magnetic (clip-on) bookmarks. If you decided to go with this option, you can also use this
to decorate your refrigerator and other metal surfaces at home.
5. Jar Designs
Be inspired to save for your travel allowance by adding stickers of your dream destinations on
your travel jar. You can also add travel quotes and other messages that can motivate you to
save. If you have children at home, you can use cute stickers to help them make dream jars that
they can display in their rooms.
You can use the same ideas to decorate other jars for ingredients, seasonings, and other small
objects that you can store in jars. Aside from stickers, you can also use decals and DIY
6. Personalised Storage Boxes
Personalise your storage boxes using different kinds of stickers. if you use storage boxes for
your clothes, you can use the free stickers from the shirts and jeans you buy. They may not look
as interesting as customised or store-bought stickers, but you can definitely form them into
unique and interesting designs.
Depending on the size of the stickers you have, you cut them into unique shapes and symbols.
Make cars, aeroplanes, butterflies, flowers, and other things that would portray your personality
(or that of the owner of the box). If you have big sheets of stickers, cut them into big and small
letters to form names and other kinds of labels for your box.
Stickers are also great in decorating scrapbooks and journals. They save you from the hassle of
using messy adhesives and from using too many materials when decorating. Compared to
boards and papers, it is much easier to remove and replace stickers on your journals if you want
to change the designs you made before.
You may use stickers to personalise the covers of your journals. Immortalise those precious
memories by decorating some pages with stickers that remind you of your adventures in
different places or your favourite memories and achievements during special events.
These are just a few of the examples that I found on DIY projects for arts and crafts. I hope this
list will be useful for you, especially when you are planning on starting DIY projects. You can
also use old stickers and DIY projects to decorate your room.
