DIY Vases

 

This is a great DIY craft with a beautiful end result! Buy plain, clear vases from a craft store, spray paint (these were spray painted white, but you can do any color that matches your home decor) and rubber bands. Arrange the rubber bands in random design, and spray paint away! It’s as easy as that. When you add a candle in these beautiful vases it has a gorgeous effect! 

Lost Socks!

I feel like I’m ALWAYS losing socks between different loads of laundry. Sometimes it almost feels as though my dryer eats a sock every now and then. This is a perfect wall-hanging for a laundry room! A plan board of wood can be painted white and you can attach clothespins to the bottom of the board (I would use wood glue, or something strong). The clothespins can also be painted for a little added effect. You can also write “lost socks” on the board with paint of a thicker permanent marker. 

Family Calendar

This is a fantastic family calendar/weekly planner. Find a picture frame with 7 or 8 smaller 4 x 6 openings for pictures. Then go to a craft store and pick out some fun scrapbook papers and cut them down to 4 x 6 to fit in the frames. You can use a whiteboard marker to write on the glass of the frames and it’s super easy to remove! Write out your families events for the week and everybody will always know what’s going on!

Cake Stand

I found a GREAT way to use a run-of-the-mill cake stand! Use it on the counter by your kitchen sink to hold your soap dispenser, sponge, lotion, etc. I suggest adding a washcloth underneath to prevent water from pooling. This spices up the area by the sink! I love it.
