This week’s milk themed DIYs include how to make oat milk, how to make a lavender milk bath, how to use milk cartons for organizing, how to crochet a milk can and how to sew an easy nut milk bag.
June 1st is World Milk Day, so I thought it would be a fun tribute to share milk related projects.
World Milk Day is observed every year on June 1st since 2001. It was established by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations to acknowledge the importance of milk on a global level not just for those enjoying milk products, but also for all those associated with the milk industry. You can learn more about it, and see just how you can celebrate by visiting World Milk Day.
On the third Tuesday of each month, I participate in the Pinterest Challenge. Our theme for this month was “Father’s Day”, so I shared an Easy Candy Sampler Box.
I also shared a fun Etsy collection featuring 10 Buzzing Bee Plant Holders Under $25.
And last week’s Weekly Dose 13, which featured floral DIYs.

Let’s See Those Milk DIYs!
How to Make Oat Milk from The Green Creator:
Typically, I drink lactose free milk. One of the girls at check out recommended I try oat milk, and I was a little skeptical despite how much she raved about it. I went home, and gave it some thought, and decided the next time I went back to grocery shop, I’d take a look. When I did, it was double the price! And so many options made me anxious, but I went with a brand that I knew (Chobani), and opted for the vanilla flavor, and was delighted when I got home and tried it! Not so much for the banana milk that I also bought to try. Oat milk also have 0 cholesterol, compared to the 30 grams in my lactose free milk, and it’s got lots of nutrients and vitamins.
I have been tempted to try my hand at making some so I am really glad I found this guide to make it. Seems pretty easy to do.
DIY Lavender Milk Bath from Three Little Ferns:
I am not a bath person at all. Some people I’ve mentioned that too have been surprised, but I don’t like to sit for anything length of time not being productive. Even when I used to go to the gym, I would have a small bag of yarn, and would be crocheting something as I rode the bike or walked on the treadmill – apparently it was a site to see!
But I can see how baths can be relaxing, especially when you add in some lavender scented oil. In my research, I’ve found that milk can make your skin feel softer, smoother and silky because of the fats in the milk.
How to Sew A Nut Milk Bag from Hello Creative Family:
The first find in today’s weekly dose was how to make oat milk, and to strain it, you’ll need a nut bag, so I thought this was a great sewing tutorial to share, and it’s suitable for a beginner!
Milk Can Free Crochet Pattern from Highland Hickory Designs:
This milk can is such a lovely decor piece! Perfect for a country style, primitive or farmhouse home. If you prefer, make it in grey for a galvanized look!
Milk Carton Pantry Organizers from Sewlicious Home Decor:
This idea to reuse milk cartons for storage in the pantry is such a neat idea! It really transforms the look with a little paint making it really appealing. Between this, and the beautiful painting Creative Jewish Mom does on some, I’m tempted to dig some of mine out of the recycling bin, and get creative.
