We discovered the amazing printing projects on Finnish photographer Kreetta’s blog Gretchen Gretchen, when browsing the Remodelista blog – and fell in love.

So creative and such simple printing ideas that are so very effective in creating beautiful modern print led patterns.

Create your own fabrics from her tutorials to in turn, make into table cloths, cushions, napkins, or even curtains – the ideas are endless.

Every so often we come across a truly beautiful diy project and this from We Are Scout is no exception.

To take such a simple idea of printing with leaves and fabric paint and produce such beautiful homeware is very clever

Follow their simple tutorial and get creative. This process will produce modern organic printed fabric – it could be used for a table cloth, curtains, cushions, tea towels – the options are endless.

It would also make a lovely design for a wrapping paper.

Love this great little DIY from A Pair And A Spare to make handy (and on trend) little concrete desk organisers.

It’s a simple and straight forward tutorial and can be adapted for your needs – just change the size or shape of the moulds.

A date for the diary if you want to give a new lease of life to old crockery. Get creative at these up cycling workshops at Heals. Book in for one of the two available September dates via Eventbrite

They say;

Give life to your vintage china in our upcycling class at Heals. First choose a pre-loved plate or teacup from The Indytute’s very special vintage china collection. Each piece has been rooted out by the Indytute china scout, who has scoured garage sales, antique stalls and junk shops to select the ideal pieces to upcycle. The idea of this workshop is to give you plate a new lease of life and turn it into a work of art you might spot in Harvey Nics. These plates make great presents and they also make a shelf very happy
