Get Your Craft On: The Best DIY Tutorials of 2014

December 26, 2014

best wedding diys of 2014

Wooo Boxing Day! The traditional lie-down-all-day-and-eat-leftovers day. Is there anything good on the telly?

I hope you all had a glorious Christmas. We were at my parents’ house (as usual). My dad cooked, wine was drunk, Trivial Pursuit was played. It’s funny, as much as I might dislike traditional weddings I sure do love a traditional Christmas!

It may be a little quiet in blogland over the festive period, but if you’re anything like me you’re still going to need things to entertain you. So instead of indulging in yet another mince pie, why not cast your eyes back over some of the the best wedding DIYs of the year?

I’m no crafting expert, but DIY tutorials are one of the things I know my readers love, so I’m going to put at least one in every issue of my new magazine (issue 1 is in stores 8th January – put the date in your diary!) If I tried to create them myself I’d probably glue my eyelashes together though, so I need your help! If you’d like to see your name in print (EEK!) and create a DIY for the new magazine I’d love to hear from you. Just drop me an email with your idea and some sample photos of past projects and we can take it from there!
