Buying craft kits from a retail store can be quite expensive, unfortunately. We have some cheap and easy do it yourself crafts that will impress all of your friends and neighbors.

Marbleized milk paper

Marbleized milk paper is a good do it yourself crafts that combine creativity and science. The ingredients that you will need are almond milk, card stock, dish soap, toothpicks, food coloring and a baking dish. Trim your cardstock to a size that will easily fit into your baking dish. Keep all of your paper next to the tray to quickly dip into the milk and color mix. Add 4 tablespoons of almond milk to your tray and add in drops of food colouring. Next, add a few drops of liquid dish soap to the milk and food coloring. A chemical reaction will start happening between all of these ingredients. Swirl the drops of food colouring together using a toothpick Once everything is a vibrant mix of colors, lay a sheet of cardstock into the tray. Press down and gently lift the paper and set aside to dry. You can usually get 3 or 4 prints out of this mix until the colors get too muddy to continue. These can be displayed all by themselves or can be used for doing it yourself cards and letters to relatives. After a few days of drying, you can place the paper between two pieces of blank card stock. Use a hot iron to flatten the paper.

Marbleized coffee or tea cups

Another interesting do it yourself crafts project is making marbleized coffee or tea cups. The super easy craft can yield very beautiful results. All you really need to purchase is white mugs from a local dollar store. You can also use an off-white or light yellow. Make use of your old nail polish that went out of style or started to get old and hard to apply. Using an old large Tupperware bowl, warm water in the microwave. Next, add drops of nail polish into the warm water. You can use multiple colors or stick to just one color for a more subtle design. Gently move the Tupperware bowl around to swirl the nail polish into the water. You have to move quickly because the nail polish starts to harden in the water if it is left for too long. Dip the mugs into this water and polish mixture. You can dip the full bottom of the cup for an overall color design. Also, you can dip just the side of the mug for a creative wave effect. Experiment with different ways to dip your mugs. Don’t fear mistakes or a pattern you do not like. You can easily remove all of the nail polish with nail polish remover once its dry. These mugs are not dishwasher or microwave safe. You will need to hand wash your mug after each use. This technique can be applied to other glass items. For example, it can be used on vases, decorative plates or even old bottles used around your house as an interior design piece of art.
