Unleash your creativity with DIY arts and crafts projects

Calling all DIY enthusiasts! Are you struggling to find inspiration for your next project, even after hours of online research? Don’t worry, Goodwill has got you covered!

As a DIY paradise, Ohio Valley Goodwill is packed with hundreds of materials and supplies for just about any craft or art project in the sun. If you feel like you’re running out of ideas, here are three simple examples to help jumpstart your creativity:

DIY jewelry tray

Nothing is more frustrating than realizing that your necklaces are tangled or that your favorite pair of earrings are missing. To keep your jewelry organized, untangled, and handy, try designating a special tray for the pieces you wear most often.

Ohio Valley Goodwill offers a range of wood, glass, metal or plastic serving trays that can be reused exactly for this purpose! Once you’ve found a tray in the size and shape you’re looking for, you can even customize it to suit your decor. One idea is to tape some sections before painting to give your tray a geometric design. For another fun look, use self-adhesive wallpaper to line the inside of the tray. You can now display your jewelry with pride!

In addition to dyeing the clothes, you can also reimagine the fabric pieces in completely new ways. How about a super soft comforter or pillow made from t-shirts from all your favorite sports teams or music artists? A cozy flannel can also be made into a stylish headband, a clutch for your morning coffee or even a cozy scarf. Fall is coming soon, so be sure to check your local Goodwill store for supplies you can use for spooky crafts and Halloween costume ideas for the whole family!

Perfect photo gallery wall

Do you have a blank wall in your house that you don’t know how to fill? Create a DIY gallery wall!

A gallery wall is a perfect solution when you’re feeling indecisive, as you don’t have to settle for just one or two pieces of art to hang. The goal is to fill the wall with as many coins as you want! However, finding all the frames and artwork to create your gallery wall can quickly get expensive. To save money (and time), shop at Goodwill for a selection of photo frames, canvases, posters, and creative wall art. You are sure to find a ton of great and inexpensive options for your wall!

To give your gallery wall a cohesive look, try painting the frames in coordinating colors. Or go the elegant route with all the gold frames. A little spray paint will go a long way!

In addition to Goodwill’s reused paintings, posters and artwork, you can also collect your favorite photos, sentimental memories and postcards and display them in the frames. When deciding on a layout, a good tip is to stick sheets of paper the same size as your frames on your wall to achieve the look you are looking for. So when you hang up everything, you won’t have to move your nails or make any rearrangements!
