Finnish design bloggers Riikka Kantinkoski and Susanna Vento have collected tips and ideas for unique DIY projects in their book OK Omin Käsin. The Finnish phrase omin käsin roughly translates to “handmade” – a fitting title! The book is filled from cover to cover with easy to follow how-to’s on everything from organizing storage to making clothes with our own two hands. How about candle holders made from cement blocks or a small tree log transformed into a lamp? The two ladies make sure to make as much use of natural materials as possible, and encourage readers to do the same. All 125 pages are beautifully styled in fresh and original colors, carefully chosen typography and stunning photographs.

Susanna, who runs the blog Varpunen, is a stylist by trade while Riikka works as a photographer when she isn’t posting to her blog Weekday Carnival. OK Omin Käsin is currently only available in Finnish, but can be bought online and ships worldwide. Even for non-Finnish speakers, it makes a beautiful gift!
