Bruce Garrabrandt has rightly said, “Creativity doesn’t wait for that perfect moment. It fashions its own perfect moments out of ordinary ones.
” However, with the coronavirus lockdown, you have that perfect moment to innovate and do something creative. Creativity knows no bounds and you can use all your imagination to do something new and artistic.
On this World Creativity and Innovation Day, which is celebrated on April 21 every year, we encourage you to don your creative cap.
Here’s few DIY ideas that you can start with while exploring your artistic side:
Renovate your living room and bedroom
Renovation doesn’t necessarily involve tearing up the walls and building new structures. You can simply re-arrange a few things in your room and feel the change. For e.g. You can change the position of your bed, decorate the ceiling of your room by using glow in the dark stickers, place a hand-made lamp on your bedside table, change the curtains in your living room by replacing the existing ones with the ones embroidered by you and practice the art of origami to have artistic pieces beautifying your living room.
DIYs for your bathroom
You can explore the world of homemade soaps and candles and redecorate your bathroom. You can have any shape and scent for the soaps and candles that you think will give you that refreshing and relaxing feel. You can use ingredients such as Aloe Vera, turmeric, lemon and honey and make healthy and organic soaps and candles for yourself.
Remodel your kitchen
You can make beautiful cup holders, spatulas and spoons holder, creative labels for kitchen jars and containers, customized napkins and towels and many more useful items for your kitchen and change the look of your kitchen. You can enjoy your cooking with these small changes in your kitchen, as you might have to spend a lot of your time there owing to the coronavirus lockdown.
Cardboard art with old boxes
You must have hoarded some of your delivery boxes, made up of cardboard, thinking about using them in the future. Well, that time is here. You can innovate new designs and get creative with scissors and paint. You can also decorate them to make storage boxes. Like, if you want to keep toys in it, you can draw all sorts of toys’ picture on the outside of the box, if you want to keep your napkins neatly folded in them, you can label the box saying napkins with stencils, if you wish to store your electric items like lose wires, extra light bulbs in the box, you can decorate the outside of the box accordingly.
Grow your vegetables
Growing your own vegetables is a very convenient way of producing organic food. It is healthy, fresh, hand-picked by you and always available. In emergency times like these, having home grown food is very beneficial. There are many videos that you can watch and learn to grow tomatoes, okra, fenugreek, coriander, chilies and many more vegetables with just seeds, water and soil. With this innovation, your garden will have a new look and you will have some fresh and green veggies.
These are some basic ideas that you can implement to give a new look and feel to your home. You can always take it up a notch and be more creative. The only precaution that you must take is to use all the available resources that are inside your home. Please do not step outside your home to get the materials required for your innovations. Secondly, make sure that you do not make drastic changes and modifications in your house that might lead to any kind of financial loss.
