The coronavirus has completely turned the world upside down. And although it’s starting to get back to normal, there’s still a long way to go. Which is why it’s a good idea to find things to keep you occupied each day. Especially important if you’re isolating with your family, these activities will prove to make every day as fun as possible.

Alongside baking and cooking, there are other extraordinary activities that you can fill your days with. But if you’re stuck for inspiration or you’ve simply run out of ideas, then you might not know what to do next. To help with this, here is a list of 5 fun and unique DIY projects you can take on:

Transform Your Backyard 

Is your backyard in dire need of some TLC? Then maybe take this time to start to transform it. This transformation can be as small or as big as you want – whatever you can do to give it that much-needed reinvigoration. Even purchasing a few plants/flowers and potting them will make all the difference.

Of course, if you want to take on a bigger project you could always create a patio or deck and purchase some outdoor furniture. Contact Tree Service Madera for your tree service needs.

The smaller projects within the garden (i.e. planting flowers) can also be a wonderful family activity. A lovely way of getting the kids involved, when the project is complete you can all sit back and admire your hard work!

Print Pictures on Wood 

If you’re looking for a truly unique DIY project, then why not try your hand at transferring pictures to wood? Whether you’re looking to decorate a vegetable box, chair or another wooden item, this beautiful craft is not only satisfying to do but incredible once it’s finished. It’s also very easy to do – meaning that you can take it on as a solo project or get the family involved too if you want!

Create A Macrame Wall Hanging 

Alternatively, if you’re looking for a chic decor piece for your home, then why not create a macrame wall hanging? Something that can be created with any colour of cotton, it’s a fun and relaxing activity to undertake. Far more satisfying than purchasing a ready-made one off of Etsy or a similar shop, there are plenty of tutorials online that you can use to create one. 

Upcycle Furniture 

Or perhaps you’re looking for a project that you can do over several weeks? If that’s the case, then maybe try and upcycle a piece of furniture? This can be anything from a set of drawers to a chair or lamp. Whatever piece you want to transform, you can do so with the right equipment and vision.

You can then proudly display your item of furniture in your home, ready for when friends and family can finally come round to visit.

Paint Your Floorboards

Are the floorboards around your home looking drab and unloved? Then it might be time to do something about it. With the spare time that you’re facing during the lockdown, you could get a paintbrush and bucket of paint and give them a beautiful makeover. 

Brightening up the room and making it feel far more spacious (especially if you opt for white paint), it’s a simple hack that can prove to be very beneficial in the long term.

Final Thoughts

So, there you go! Those are 5 fun and unique DIY projects you can take on during the lockdown. What you decide to take on, of course, is up to you. But whatever you choose, you’ll have an end result that you’re proud of and can’t wait to show off!
