Hobbies of all kinds are the best way to utilize free hours of the day and usually are cathartic. My hobbies are Art and Craft besides few others that make me forget time and help in keeping depressed mood away.
I keep posting my one odd painting and craft projects on and off on my social media and it gives me immense pleasure when people praise my work.
And so Arty Smarty of Bangalore decided to send me a few of their DIY Craft projects. Arty Smarty creates easy to do-it-yourself craft kits for children as well as grown ups. The projects are smart and look good. I crafted a ‘wall clock’, a small ‘table lamp’ and an Eiffel Tower.
Wall clock kit contains a square base with an option to chose the art one would want on its face, a set of clock arms, a clock mechanism for cell and arms and a hanging hook.
I chose to have a compass on the clock surface as it symbolizes my love for outside, for travel.
Did a quick makeover of the white base with mountains, sea, desert and forests to depict all cardinal directions that we can explore and I have traveled to.
The wall surface is perfect for acrylics and oil paints. I have however used oil pastels as I wanted a rustic finish. With other designs available on website solid colors could also be easily applied.
A bedside table lamp kit comes with a base unit and adapter for electrical connection and a perspex sheet printed with a design of one’s choice. The sheet goes into a slot on base unit.
Just paint away with colors you love and and voila! your own hand-painted bedside table lamp is ready for use.
I chose a simple mandala design and added a some dash of color. I purposely did not color the entire design to let the original design show. I have used washable glass paints so I could change the color whenever I want to.
The lamp DIY kit is for ages seven years and above. There are numerous images to choose, from cartoons to mandala designs. The children would find cute little cartoons quite attractive to paint and have their own art work light up as a lamp in their rooms.
It is quite easy and child friendly project.
Small individual elements can be glued together to make this iconic structure of Eiffel Tower. It becomes a good show piece for decor at your home.
The DIY projects by Arty Smarty come with a link to the instructions on their website and are fun way of utilizing the time.
I quite enjoyed assembling and coloring the DIY projects.
