Since home has been where everyone is quietly hanging out these days, you might be starting to feel a little restless. You’ve likely already cleaned out your closets and binge-watched enough Netflix shows to last the whole year. Perhaps it’s time to try a new project instead?
These crafty DIYs are perfect for afternoons inside and will help spruce up your interiors so you can enjoy quarantine time even more.
10 Minute Pillow Covers

Shibori Tie Dye
Tie dye is back in style and the absolute perfect (and addicting!) project to attempt right now. You can create lovely pillow covers, curtains, linens, or go nuts and dye your socks!
