We've all got a crafty DIY side to us. If only we could think of some fun and easy home improvement projects to complete in order to zing up our homes and up the cute factor a little bit.

Well, you don't need to be an expert to be able to complete any of the projects we're showing you today. Whether your sofa needs cheering up with some new cushions or your bathroom floor could use a flash of colour, we have the right project for you.

Let's get crafty!

1. Get your garden in on the fun by building a handy seating arrangement

2. Macramé is easy to master
