With these long winter evenings and dull, wet and windy days it's a good time to start getting creative and bring some fresh inspiration in to your home.
There are some great ideas on the internet of simple things to make especially as we have Valentine's and Easter coming soon.
Hobbycraft have some very clever crafts for all sorts of decorations and home decor ideas suitable for everyone, whether you are new to crafting and just want some advice, or a busy parent looking for a school project - or you want to recreate this fabulous headboard featured in the photo from reclaimed wood.

We thought it would be nice to share some of the lovely photos we've received from Mango Tree customers who have done a fantastic job renovating their furniture and adding our ceramic cupboard knobs to give it that extra finishing touch.
Nicci from Leeds put these Alice in Wonderland Black and White knobs on this painted yellow chest of drawers for a great effect. Nicci says 'Love my Alice in Wonderland Knobs'.
Georgia from Bridgend has chosen the 'Saffron and Slate' theme we featured recently by adding saffron yellow and mustard knobs to this grey tall cupboard which really compliments the wallpaper to great effect!
These two fantastic dressers look brilliant and these photos were sent in by Mango Tree customers to show how great the ceramic cupboard knobs look on these beautiful pieces of furniture.
Debbie from Swindon sent the photo of her cream dresser and says: "I had the dresser top for more than twenty years... the sideboard for around six years. I love the shabby chic look and decided to take the plunge, after seeing something similar in a gift shop in Lyme Regis! When I got home, I retrieved the dresser top from the shed, bought the paint... and away I went! The knobs were a finishing touch, which I think look fabulous"..
We definitely agree Debbie!
The photo of the grey dresser was sent in by Niamh from Ireland who also used the grey ceramic spots and stripes along with two of the black and white butterfly knobs.
Margo has used our mixed set of Whisper Grey cupboard knobs on her wooden chest of drawers and the hanging hearts are a great addition - so is the candle and fragrant reed diffuser all adding to the lovely tranquil, calm effect. Margo says: "Thank you.... My new knobs have brightened up my chest of drawers perfectly.... ❤️
Last but not least, Marloes has used the round ceramic cupboard knobs in bright colours and spots and stripes to jazz up this oak cupboard. Marloes says: "Thank you so much for the quick delivery of the lovely knobs! My cupboard looks a lot less boring now!"
We hope these ideas will inspire you to have a go too!
And if you do we would love it if you sent us your photos and we can feature them in another one of our future blogs.
Until next time,
The Mango Tree Team.
