There are thousands of types of DIY projects to do at home, from creative and decorative projects, to functional projects that improve the efficiency of the house. The good thing about these projects is that there are all kinds of things and we can choose the one we like the most or the one we like best, and even adapt it to our needs and tastes.
Here you have 15 fun and functional DIY Crafts and Creative Ideas your home the way you like it:
1.- Bird eater
With a circular mold, bird seeds, a ribbon and liquid sebum, we can create an extra food for the birds that will come to them in winter time.
2.- Tomato inverted
Instead of throwing bottles of soda and other 2-liter drinks, we can cut the bottom of the bottle and hang it inverted so that the bottom is up and the part of the cap is down. What we will do is fill the bottle with earth and tomato seeds (spices and peppers are also worth it) and we will water regularly. With the passage of time, the plant will start to leave the part of the stopper and we will have our tomato inverted.
3.- Vases of light with different drawings
Wrap some rope around each jar by drawing different shapes for each one. Then paint the jar of the color you like the most and remove the string. Now when placing a candle inside the jar, we can see how the different shapes and drawings that we made with the rope light up, giving a very cozy atmosphere to the area of the house where they are.
4.- Baked labels made of salt and flour
Ideal to give as a gift on Valentine’s Day, or for any other special occasion.
5.- Customized garden stones
We can make a path of custom flat rocks to walk through our garden using large leaves (like those of rhubarb), cement and a palette.
6.- Vertical garden made with shoe organizers
A shoe organizer is excellent for planting and cultivating all kinds of aromatic plants, spices and other plants.

With a flowerpot and a bit of rope or wire we can make a very fun floating pot. We can plant things like lechiga, spices, tomatoes, strawberries …
