Creative Bucket List 2016

I enjoy creating lists. Lists of fun activities, to-do list, blog ideas, errands to run for the day, grocery lists, and goals. I decided to write down a bucket list of creative projects I want to work on during 2016. I thought that sharing my ideas could help inspire you to work on creative projects of your own throughout the year.

When I sat down to write this list, I wanted to add a few different type of creative crafts for the year. I have a mix of sewing, painting, a button craft, a wood DIY project, paper craft, and photography. I'm excited to work on these home decor projects and gifts.

These are some of the fabrics I will be using for the scrap quilt for my daughter. I have slowly started to cut out the squares and rectangles for her quilt and she likes to check in on the progress of piecing blocks together.

Our Christmas tree skirt is going to have a Doctor Who theme. I linked above to my inspiration for this project. I am changing the design quite a bit and adding different appliqued figures to make this my own project.

These thrift store wood finds will eventually end up being boards painted with a simple message for my girls' rooms. They picked out these bright paints last year for a different project we worked on, and I think they will love them on the decor for their room.

I have quite a large button collection that will be perfect for the button tree that I want to make. I have a whole drawer full of different shapes and colors to choose from.

That's it for my creative bucket list for 2016. These are the creative projects I am really looking forward to this year. I hope that you received some inspiration and want to start creating for your own home as well. I would love to hear in the comments about the crafty or creative projects that you want to work on this year.
