I wanted a little change in our bedroom but currently, we're on a tight budget. To keep from spending money, I went shopping in what I already had on hand. When it comes to decor, shop your home first is the best policy!
If you're looking for a cute, unique way to consolidate your children's snacks and toys in their overnight bag this is the perfect little DIY project for you. If you have older littles, this would be a great weekend project to do together over a cold glass of milk and some homemade cookies.
Frugal crafts are simply the best. If you already own a few mason jars you are off to a great start. You will need to gather or collect a few more supplies to put together these jar. It literally took me less than 5 minutes to create each jar. Clever and inexpensive
Best part of all… When you are done using, simply pull off the balloon and you have your mason jar back for preserving your apple sauce

Who doesn't love some color in their home especially the kitchen where everyone tends to congregate. I put out a poll as to what colors I should do for some mason jars to add to this super cute dovetailed wood box and got green and coral as the winners.

As most of us know, it is much easier to make an old piece of furniture look new than new furniture look old. I saw an craft article in BH&G using cheesecloth to decorate vases. The idea of using cheesecloth to add texture and age popped in my mind. I noodled over this idea until I spotted a tin heart ornament in the bottom of my paint box. I bought an open web cheesecloth on-line, there are many sizes of cheesecloth (surprise) available so I opted for the largest weave I could fine. I used some end pieces of wood and tried different paints, adhesives etc until I found what I thought would work. It didn't but I was close.Keeping a trial project small is a good idea as I have learned that removing paint/glue from a "fail" is just not all that much fun.
Turn an old window and some tin cans into a gorgeous herb garden for your backyard. Not only does the upcycled window herb planter looks fantastic in my little garden but it's really practical, as I now have my own little herb garden. The herbs are in portable upcycled tin can planters, that can be easily taken into the kitchen when needed. I decided to use old tin cans as planters as I had lot of success with the colourful tin can planter (click here to see) I made last year. />
When our Mom died at the age of 82, my middle sister inherited our childhood home (which is currently 127 years old and definitely in need of LOTS of work). My Mom had a slider chair that sat by the window so she could enjoy the view as she relaxed (and sometimes "go for a ride" on it while the dog was scraping a toy around on the carpeting, which wasn't secured into place. Yes, a BIG dog, all muscle, AND Momma was lenient with all family members).
Do you have some kind of faux taxidermy up in your pad? Have you jumped on board the trend? I happily admit, I love a good white deer head like the rest of them.If you have wanted to get something like that for a kids nursery or bedroom, then this DIY tutorial is for you. Forget the sloppy paper and mis-shapen busts of going the usual paper mache route. This version of faux (!!) mini paper mache animal heads is going to take you no time and look SO cute.
Got any pickle jars lying around? Don't toss them before you see these great DIY's!To begin, take off the label by soaking the pickle jar in a sink full of warm water & add 1 cup of vinegar. After the labels are off wash with dish soap to make sure the jar is clean.
