3 Bank Holiday Home Crafting Ideas

When it comes to preparing your home for your guests this bank holiday, it’s the little details that are the key to achieving the perfect look!

This week we have gathered some of our favourite simple craft ideas that will help you add those unique finishing touches. It’s also the ideal way to get the children involved in some crafty bank holiday activities.

Fabric Fairy Lights


Why not line your guest’s headboard with a string of handmade lanterns? These fairy lights are a delicate way of creating ambiance in a room.

Glueing an assortment of small fabric pieces to clear plastic party cups creates a display of light that can be tailored to match the existing colour scheme.

Painted Pots for Table Décor and Gifts


If you’re planning on making the most of the late summer evenings, you may wish to create an array of table decorations.

Continue your garden’s greenery theme by using stencils to produce floral embellishments. Paint on glass mason jars for candle holders, ceramic pots for delicate planters, and clear wine glasses to complete your look.

Marbled Coasters


If you’re anything like us, you’ll tend to find that the more guests you have, the more cups of tea you find yourself making!

These gorgeous marbled coasters look elegant and artistic, and work well with a modern décor. Experiment with colour combinations by choosing bright contrasting nail varnishes to cover brilliant white tiles.

These coasters also make the perfect gift for friends when tied together with matching ribbon.

Find the method here, and try it for yourself!
