17 fun colour-dipping projects to do this weekend

Posted in DIY Activities & Play.


Colour-dipping is so hot right now and nothing is off limits. All you’ll need is a few cans of spray paint, some pots of paint and masking tape to turn drab into fab.  Here are our top 17 colour-dipping ideas you can do over the weekend.

1. Touch up the tool box

Gardening tools can lose their lustre quickly if left outdoors over time. Sarah Hearts shows us a great way of re-vamping the gardening tools and making them worthy of a spot in the sunshine. A quick paint-dip and new leather handles is all it took to turn these into a gardeners dream!

2. Paint dip pots

Your plant pots just got prettified! HelloBee shows us how to make these nifty neon planters in six simple steps. We reckon the kids could even help with this one! It’s a great weekend project for the whole family.

3. Colourful toy storage

Toy Lid Glass Jars

This is one for the kids! Spend an afternoon going crazy with colour on their plastic toys and create funky jars for storing craft supplies! Lolly Jane gives us a step by step guide on how to jazz up our jars.

4. Give the laundry a lift

If your washing baskets are looking a little worse for wear, take a tip from Seeds and Stitches. The pairing of white or natural wicker with popping colours will brighten up any room, and if it makes doing the laundry a tad more bearable we’re definitely down with that!
