Put ‘craft ideas’ into Google, or better yet journey into the time-suck procrastination machine known as Pinterest, and you’ll quickly be greeted by just about every home DIY craft idea that you can possibly dream up. If you can think of it, someone has done it, and someone else has created something that may never have popped into your head. It can be somewhat intimidating, especially if you’re one of those people who find it hard to know where to start and end up staring at tutorials you’ll never actually get around to following. However, the key is that the inspiration has been planted in your brain, and even if your design turns out nothing like that sparkly craft you saw on Pinterest, at least you’ll have given it a shot and hopefully come up with something as equally as creative.
So you don’t HAVE to try the bathroom craft ideas I’ve collected here. Even if it only kick-starts you into doing something unique in your bathroom, my work here will be done. You can go out and buy a thousand and one décor products for your bathroom, but that’s never going to be a satisfying as something completely unique that you created with your own hands. Just try it, even if you’re not that creative all the tutorials – and the millions more out there – tend to be easy enough to follow that you’re not spending weeks on the same project. Your bathroom will thank you for it!
Cute Laundry Hamper
My first pick is this wonderful Laundry Hamper from Design Love Fest. It’s incredibly simple, yet it will go great in the neutral surroundings of a white bathroom. It’s made by creating small stamps and hand-stamping them on your chosen fabric to create a polka-dot effect. I keep telling my other half we could do with a laundry basket in the bathroom, as otherwise we’ll keep dumping bath towels in with the clothes sat in the one we have in our bedroom. This design will be right up her street, so we may have to try making this over the weekend!
Pedestal Sink Skirt
Sometimes a pedestal sink in your bathroom can look downright ugly. That’s the case when there’s no actual pedestal and all you can see is the pipework leading into the floor. One way of hiding this – save getting a pedestal – is to build a storage cupboard around it to hide it and create some extra handy storage space, but if that’s not something you want to do then you can try this solution. Jenny at Little Green Notebook had the same problem, so she decided to create a ‘skirt’ for her sink. It’s a simple and easy-to-craft solution, but the results look pretty good to me.
It won’t be up everyone’s street, but if you want that real ‘DIY’ look solution then you can see the full tutorial here.
Mason Jar Bathroom Organiser
I’m not entirely sure if we use mason jars here in the UK, but I suppose any glass jar of a similar size will do. It’s a real ‘DIY’ way to provide some storage for all those little bathroom essentials that can just end up cluttering up your cupboards or bathroom surfaces. Four jars attached to a block of wood that sits on the wall somewhere in the bathroom is more than enough to keep those tiny things, and as The DIY Playbook describes it it looks very ‘farmhouse chic’. Fantastic!
Mosaic Tile Bathroom Mirror
Why have just a simply mirror on your bathroom wall when you can go wild with the frame around it? The always fabulous Centsational Girl shows us how it’s done with her incredible Mosaic tile frame. Obviously you’re going to have to go out and buy some tiles for this one, but if you have some left over from a previous bathroom project then you’ll already be quid’s-in!
This is probably the hardest to get right of all the crafts featured here, but if you follow the full tutorial on Centsational Girl then it shouldn’t be overly-complicated.
Pipe Shower Curtain Rod
Although I’ve been talking about hiding pipes earlier in this post, it turns out that putting them on show can also look great too! Why have naff plastic shower curtain rods when you can make one out of a pipe instead? The rod here, created by Desert Domicile, kind of has a steampunk vibe to it. Its industrial look is perfect for the modern urban home.
You can see how Desert Domicile did it to try it for yourself here.
I love a good nautical theme in the bathroom, and these rope shelves perfectly suit it. It’s such a basic idea, yet it will create a standout look in your bathroom. It’s also a great splash of personality if you’re into your climbing or sea-based activities, but you don’t have to be one for those! All I’ll say is that you should know your knots first.
Find out how to make these rope shelves over on Design Sponge.
