What to Make This Weekend: Marquee Signs, Clothespin Planters + More

With Valentine’s Day now officially behind us and Easter not quite here, we’re in a bit of a holiday purgatory – and maybe that’s not such a bad thing. Take a quick break from the party planning and holiday DIYs to focus on some projects that are all about Y-O-U (and your humble abode). From a stellar side table to a gorgeous handbag, here are projects to tackle this weekend.

1. Gift Tag Desk Calendar: Dip-dye basic gift tags and use gold rub-on transfers to create the month and day labels. Keep this beauty on your desk or add it to that gorgeous gallery wall. (via Homemade By Carmona)

2. Marbled Notebooks: Take a simple notebook and cover it with contact paper to create a custom journal. Not a fan of marble? Use any pattern that suits your fancy. (via Brit + Co)

3. Mid-Century Coffee Table: Always losing those pesky remotes? Do Don Draper proud and create this custom, ’50s inspired side table complete with some secret storage space. (via Sugar and Cloth)

4. Leather Drop Bag: To anyone who has debated ditching your weekly grocery trip for that beautiful leather bag, we know your struggle. Save a big chunk of cash by busting out your sewing machine and picking up some leather from the fabric store to create this adorable drop bag. (via Brit + Co)

5. Washi Tape Bookmark: Step up your bookmark game with this fun washi tape-covered option. All you need to master this project is an envelope, a few rolls of washi tape and a pair of scissors. (via Zakka Life)

6. Air Plant Magnets: Hold the phone. These magnets are ALIVE. There are so many ways to use the rootless plant, but this might just be our favorite option of them all. (via The Proper Blog)

7. Colored Blocked Shirt: Head on over to the thrift store, pick out two coordinating shirts and mesh them into one super on-trend tunic. If you’re a sewing newbie, this is a great, simple project that offers major results. (via Makery)

8. Patterned Candles: Need a fun, personalized gift idea? Look no further, my friend. We’ve all been kind of freaking out over at Brit + Co HQ about how easy and amazing these patterned candles are. Seriously, it’s so simple it’s kind of scary. (via Brit + Co)

9. Clothespin Mini Planters: The secret material needed for these adorable miniature planters? Tuna cans! This DIYer used a stain marker to give the clothespins a rustic look, but if you’re looking for something a little more colorful, simply substitute with a paint pen. (via The Copper Anchor)

10. Clay Marquee Sign: Okay so we’re not gonna lie, this one’s going to take some time. But is it worth it to have a custom little marquee made from clay? We think yes. (via This Heart of Mine)
