Crafty Geek Corner: Doctor Who’s TARDIS DIY

In this new blog series, Crafty Geek Corner, I will highlight my favorite pins each Monday.  This will hopefully accomplish two of my goals: 1) continue time management & blog consistency, & 2) share more ways to geek out over fandoms with all of you!

Okay, last week I was on a much needed vacation; hence, the lack of Crafty Geek Corner goodness. Fear not, we are back on track. This week’s installment is all about Doctor Who‘s TARDIS! Doo wee oooooh!


DIY Doctor Who‘s TARDIS

Crafty Geek Corner: Doctor Who TARDIS DIY edition

I’ve already talked about this in a previous post, but it bears repeating: I started watching Doctor Who (the reboot) simply because of the sheer magnitude of pins related to it in the “Geekdom” category on Pinterest. I have seen every episode of the reboot series (or seasons for non-Brits), but haven’t ventured into classic Doctor Who out of already meager time management when it comes to keeping up with my current TV/cable/streaming shows. I’ll get to it eventually. As you can tell from my blog’s header, one of the things I geek out over the most is Doctor Who. In fact, that is my hand-drawn sketch of the TARDIS in flux.

So, what has caught my eye as far as Doctor Who‘s TARDIS-related DIY crafts on Pinterest:

TARDIS key

When I originally saw this pin, I was instantly intrigued by the sheer genius of it. It is fun & cheeky, plus you will never again forget which key is the one to your front door.

As you can tell from my blog’s header, one of the things I geek out over the most is Doctor Who. In fact, that is my hand-drawn sketch of the TARDIS in flux. This craft seems like it would be something I could knock out in not that much time. Once you have the outlines drawn, it is mostly filling in with the blue. This would look great on my desk in the petite home office I am planning on creating.

TARDIS Murphy Bed

For when you need to maximize the space in a room, a Murphy bed is always a great idea: it’s bigger on the inside! Yup, I’m still thinking of my upcoming home office/guest room. This would be great in that setting, albeit as a strong focal point in the room.

While the shoes in the pin are TOMS, I could definitely see this idea being tweaked & looking great on a pair of white Chucks, which would also be very Ten! I love comfy shoes, so this could be modified to various different shoe types.

I would most definitely need to put the TARDIS on my left hand, as I am a righty.  I like this subtle nod to the Doctor Who fandom.  Whenever I can fly my geek flag & still be work appropriate, I am a happy geek.


Well, that is all for today!  In the meantime, feel free to share links to your own Doctor Who inspired DIY posts in the comments.  I’ll gladly pin them to my Crafty Geek Pinterest board!
