7 Pinterest Projects You Have To Add To Your DIY To-Do List

Ah, Pinterest. We love it for its endless DIY inspiration, but when it comes to actually making Pinterest projects ourselves? Well, let's just say we are more likely to keep those projects pinned to our digital boards rather than create them in real life. As much as we're all about going the DIY route, too many times those great ideas we gush over go by the wayside, for a multitude of reasons — we are too tired, too busy, or don't have the right supplies. But as these Hometalk bloggers prove, there are certain Pinterest projects you seriously have to try — they are too simple (and way too cute!) to pass up.

We’ve all been there — you are sitting and scrolling through Pinterest, when one perfect project stands out and shouts, “MAKE ME!” There is no need to feel guilty. It could be a geometric planter made from cocktail straws spray painted gold, or an easy arm knitted blanket made from cut-up old t-shirts. Whatever your Pinterest craving, we've got seven more Pin-spired projects that you must add to your list. How do we know they are amazing? Because seven Hometalk Bloggers decided to answer Pinterest’s call, and the result was awesome. See for yourself:

1. A Table Runner Made From Vintage Doilies

5. Large Wooden Growth Chart From A Pine Board

OK, this one is a favorite for every parent or award-winning aunt, but as simple as it is to make, for most of us, it just sits on our Pinterest page. No more — time to add to your decor and enjoy watching your kids grow all at once.

7. Himmeli Geometric Sculpture

We knew that cocktail straw planter idea sounded too good to be true, so we had to prove we weren't making it up. Gather your straws and shake up that spray paint, because you're about to have an Anthropologie-approved piece of decor for almost nothing.
