Top 10 DIY Posts of 2021
While cooking is my first love, I really enjoy being crafty and creative, too. Over the years, we've created so many projects but these are the ones that YOU, our awesome readers, loved the most in 2021.
1. DIY Cedar Planter Box
DIY Cedar Planter Box Tutorial - this project was created by a contributor and takes top honors as being the most popular DIY project this past year.
And while I like this project very much, my most favorite outdoor decor has got to be our DIY Pallet Planter.
2. Beach and Bote Tote
Make your own Beach & Boat Tote - I created this when my kids were little and have used a version of it ever since. This tote is perfect for on-the-go summertime fun at the park, beach or on the boat.
3. Pool Pallet Storage
Simple DIY Pallet Pool Storage - the only cost to make this fun project was for hardware to mount it, and hooks. It's a great way to store pool noodles and other toys and a a great spot to hang towels, too.
4. Canvas String Art
String Art on Canvas - This has always been a fun project for teens and adults. Last year, we added instructions for how to make it a bit more kid friendly by using washable paint instead of spray paint.
5. DIY Flannel Coasters
How to Make Fabric Coasters - another amazing contributor created these several years ago and they've been a hit since day one. It's great sewing project for beginners.
You can find even more tutorials for homemade coasters in this DIY Coaster Ideas collection.
6. All Natural Insect Repellent Jars
DIY Natural Insect Repellent Jars - throughout the Spring and Summer and even into the Fall, I love making these jars. They're a beautiful way to help keep the bugs away.
7. LEGO Travel Toys
Make a LEGO Travel Set - all you need for this project is a lunchbox and a few other simple items. It's great for car trips, waiting rooms and anywhere you need to entertain your littles!

8. Elsa Cape Tutorial
Elsa Cape Tutorial - My daughter Olivia was obsessed with Frozen (like every other little girl!) This beautiful and surprisingly easy DIY sewing project has been a reader favorite since 2014 when we first published it. Now that Olivia has outgrown the cape, her cousins in California play with it daily!
9. Tie Dye Onesies
Summer Baby Shower with Tie Dye Onesies - there are so many fun projects you can do with tie dye, but there's something really fun and special about these tie dyed onesies.
And if you're going to throw your own tie dye party, be sure to check out these 15 Tempting Tie Dye Party Recipes.
10. Space Saving Bunk Beds
Space Saving Bunk Beds - when we needed to find a way to create separate spaces for our children, we came up with these built in bunk beds that divided the room in two!
We also built both kids DIY Floating Wood Shelves in their rooms.
