Is your head in the clouds? Mine too! At least it will be with these cloud crafts – I absolutely love these unique project ideas, and you will too!
I’m not sure if it’s because I’m originally from Seattle, but I absolutely love clouds. I saw a DIY cloud light that I had saved in my internet bookmarks recently, and from there I was inspired to find more cloud projects to make – so I decided to round them all up into a collection!
Clouds and their formation can be complex, but the truth is that the crafts are relatively simple. Given their shape, you’re doing a lot of freeform round shapes for your projects . . . and that makes them easier.
No very specific and precise right angles here. Because that wouldn’t be very cloudlike, now would it?
I’m excited to share these ideas with you, ranging from things for kids to adults (think home decor and gifts). If your children’s room has a theme that lends itself to weather formations, I think I’ve got some good ideas for you.
I’d love for you to check out these cloud crafts, because I think you’re going to love these picks. I can’t decide which one is my favorite, but I’m definitely going to make a light and some shelves.
Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried any of these projects. I’d love to hear it! Now onto the DIYs and here’s some good news. None of them are rain clouds. So you’ll stay dry during your crafting. Nice, right?
