Book Page Art
You don't have to be a brilliant artist to produce pleasing artwork to display around your home. This is just one quick simple idea that anyone can do.
Paper Plate Jelly Fish Decoration
Fun for children and adults to make. These look pretty hanging in the house, or even better on a sunny day blowing in a gentle breeze in the garden.
Autumn Arrangement in Twig Wrapped Jar
If you are fortunate to have a tree lined or wooded area in your vicinity, then on the next bright autumn day that you come across, take a walk of gratitude and collect some twigs, preferably straight ones. When you get home you can then make this lovely autumn vase and fill it with beautiful things
Amber and Pearl (Chickens)
My daughter bought the chickens for us from a rescue centre a few weeks ago. These ladies are only just starting to learn how to have fun after being kept in tiny cages. They like to hide under bushes and come out to eat grass and scratch around in the autumn leaves.
Simple Pennant Cake Topper
So pretty and easy to make and you can use recycled fabric from pre-loved garments to make these delightful cake toppers. Older children can join in making these for a tea party. You can cut out the fabric and they can get busy glueing them onto the sticks.
Exceptionally quick to make and so tasty. Have 1-2 each for a lunchtime snack, or 3 or more for a main meal. Eat with a salad or make it into a roast dinner with potatoes, vegetables, gravy, and Yorkshire pudding.

Growing Tomato Slices
I don't mean you can get ready sliced tomatoes off a plant that would be silly. However, rather than pay for an expensive pack of seeds, or go to the trouble of picking seeds out of a tomato and drying them, you can actually plant slices of tomatoes.
Post-it Note For Cleaning Keyboard
Before you throw out a Post-it Note, use the sticky side to clean around small hard to access places such as under the keys of your keyboard.
Chicken Amongst the Vegetables
Every now and again, a naughty chicken will escape into the vegetable patch. Also every now and again I let them in there on purpose. They do scratch about a bit and nibble at the leaves, but they don't do as much damage as the little bugs that they pick off and eat. It's free nutrition for the birds and better eggs and less damage from caterpillars and the like, plus a little extra fertilizer in the process!
Paper Fortune Cookies
These paper fortune cookies are quick and easy to make and a fun feature of any party or gathering.
Recycled Paper Pendant
These pendants are easy to make out of old envelopes, magazines, or gift wrap. They are sturdy, solid, and very pretty. If you love to construct beaded jewelry you can make a stash of them to incorporate into your designs or simply thread one onto a chain or cord for a dainty necklace.
Button Hair Ties
This is such a simple idea and lots of fun for little girls to make their own. Have a good search through your button box and see what you can find to make these super easy hair ties.

Fabric and Button Tic-Tac-Toe Game
Here's a simple little version of the popular game of tic tac toe, also known as noughts and crosses. Of course you can always play this at any time with just a pen and paper, but this pocket game is pretty and fun to carry around. I have used floral fabric.
This is so cute and super easy to make. Children will love to keep this in their pocket to show others at school. Older children can make one themselves. In fact even adults think this simple toy is totally awesome. Everyone who sees Jack's happy face pop out can't help smiling.
Birthday Parcel Card
You can make this card to match your gift by using a leftover scrap of wrapping paper. Or you can make a smaller version for a gift tag.
These are great fun for children to make and play with. Younger children can wrap the maracas in pretty tape instead of using the strong glue. Use the plastic eggs with a lid that little toys often come packed in. Mine is from the centre of a chocolate egg.
Statement Pendant Necklace
Collect a pile of colourful plastic lids from food tubs and you can easily make this bold and bright pendant. Make sure the plastic is not brittle. You need the flexible type that can easily be cut with scissors.
