The slump of winter is but a distant memory now, and with the return of the sun, you have plenty of energy to spruce up your nest, make beautiful and creative knickknacks for yourself, gifts, or parties. For the DIY-er who’s ready to stretch their creativity this season, Magic Pony has got you covered! If you’re looking for a weekend craft, or want to flex your imagination, here are some artistic products that allow you to completely personalize them!
Kidrobot’s DIY Munnyworld figures are incredibly fun. If you have not tried customizing one of these figures before, we suggest you make sure to pick one up ASAP! The figure is provided as a mere base that the artist can customize without end. The vinyl surface of a Munny takes pencil, pen, markers, paint, stickers, and almost any media you can use. You can carve into the vinyl, or glue 3-D additions onto your Munny as well. Clay, like Sculpey, is easy to mould and bake in your home oven.
Munnyworld figures are available in a variety of characters beyond the humanoid Munny. Raffy, a giraffe-like figure, is great if you want to create a 4-legged figure. Other 2-legged variations include Trikky, Bub, Kracka, and Foomi. The figures are available in 4″ or 7″ sizes. Each figure allows endless creativity. If you’re not already addicted, after trying one of these, it’s easy to understand why all ages love Munnyworld toys.

Shower curtains are the biggest and best way to personalize a bathroom, so why not personalize your shower curtain? Grain’s Ty DIY Shower Curtain is a canvas you can simply draw on with a permanent marker. Create patterns, illustrations, messages, inspirational quotes, anything! Or, gather a bunch of friends together to doodle on your shower curtain and make a party out of it.
Ty is a type of plastic that is more environmentally and health conscious than traditional vinyl. It is a stronger material than vinyl, so it will last longer, and harmful mould and mildew are less likely to grow. As a bonus, this shower curtain is recyclable! After you are finished with it, cut off the metal grommets and you can easily throw it in a blue bin.
This creative and nature-friendly curtain is available in store and online.

This is a the only book a DIY-er needs, whether you’re a veteran crafter or newbie State of Craft is one of the most popular craft books available, and for good reason too: it has over 60 projects to choose from for your own use, or for any occasion. Every craft is clearly explained, has helpful illustrations, and allows a lot of room for personal customization. Also, it teaches you how to sew, knit, and crochet!
Some of my favourite crafts are Victoria Woodcock’s “Big Jumper Pouffe,” which is shockingly easy to make out of an old, large knit sweater; Coralie Sleep’s “Barrel Bag” which proves just how simple it is to make a duffle bag; State of Craft has A LOT of decoration ideas, and Catherine Miller, from craft-centic blog Little Glowing Lights, teaches you to make lovely garlands which are easy, inexpensive decorations from supplies found around the house and at dollar stores.
