Pinterest DIY Series: Crayon art
So, let me just say it, (because we’re all thinking it,) I LOVE PINTEREST!
I have more boards than I care to admit, with storage ideas, life hacks, recipes, and – my favourite – DIY projects. My DIY Pinterest board is craft’s answer to MacGyver, (TV’s resourceful hero of the 80’s).
There are pins about how to make a light fitting using only toilet rolls, and recycling tins to create terrarium fridge magnets for mini air-plants. In fact, it turns out that pretty much anything can be upcycled; from old shoes and corks, to broken crayons and wine bottles, and don’t even get me started on mason jars!

So 2016 brings an exciting new year’s resolution: to pull out that DIY Pinterest board and to give it a go! What’s more, the team at Made It invite you all to do the same!
We have set up a Pinterest board
of some of our favourite projects. Each Month we will be having a crack at the DIY Project of the Month and we would love it if you played along too. There’ll be giveaways each month for those who get involved, so get your creative juices flowing, pull out the PVA glue and let’s get crafting!
THIS MONTH: CRAYON ART!

Get your thinking hat on, work out which wall needs a little colour, and get creating. Don’t forget to share your work with us (the wins and the fails), by tagging Made It on Instagram and Facebook! Plus, our favourite photo shared this month will win $20 credit to spend in a Made It store of their choice.
We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
