We’re back again with our favourite round up of bloggers – this time, we’re celebrating our top 5 UK craft bloggers! Now we don’t know about you, but we like crafts that we can actually do ourselves. Our favourite craft bloggers make simple, fun and effective crafts and DIYs – here’s a bit more about them and why we think they’re fab:
Crafts on Sea
Our favourite post: DIY Pom Pom Garland
Find Kate on Instagram: @craftsonsea
After moving to Cornwall from Southend this summer, Kate and her two kids love crafting as well as exploring and adventuring around the hills and rockpools of sunny Cornwall! Our favourite craft is Kate’s DIY Pom Pom Garland – sure to spruce up any home, office or a great alternative to tinsel come Christmas time!
The Gingerbread House
Our favourite post: Personalised Scrabble Wall Art
Find Jenny on Instagram: @the.gingerbread.house
Filled with family fun and kid-friendly crafts, The Gingerbread House blog is a happy, colourful place to be! Our favourite blog post is Jenny’s personalised scrabble wall art – a great way to take a popular idea and DIY it for cheaper, personalised with your family’s, best friend’s or even your pet’s names!
Our favourite post: DIY Copper Straw Wreath
Find Claire on Instagram: @claireabellemakes
A crafter who took her passion to a full time job, Claire of ClaireabellMakes not only crafts some nifty pretty DIYs online, but also hosts craft parties and has an Etsy shop too (you all know how much we love Etsy)! Our favourite post is the design-led copper straw wreath, which is just as gorgeous at Christmas as it is all year round. Come round and decorate our office Claire!
Inside Out and About
Our favourite post: DIY Room Spray with Essential Oils
Find Esther on Instagram: @insideoabout
The lovely Esther of Inside Out and About blog juggles life with three gorgeous boys as well as throwing in some great recipes and lifestyle crafts! We love the DIY room spray with essential oils – a breath of citrus is a fresh way to welcome guests into your home, or perhaps a spritz of lavender before bed? We think they make great gifts, too!
A Handmade Cottage
Our favourite post: Floral and Faded Wood Tutorial… Using Napkins!
Find Jodie on Instagram: @ahandmadecottage
Last but not least, Jodie of A Handmade Cottage. A countryside lover and keen thrifter, Jodie’s blog is full of fantastic DIYs including this great floral wooden table (which is so much easier than you think)! Take a look around A Handmade Cottage and you’ll also spy Jodie’s wedding – handmade and vintage inspired, naturally…!
