Teddy bears on a shelf.

Coordinating DecorThis is my frugal idea for decorating your home. I choose a picture that I like and then decorate the room based on the objects/colors of the picture. The decor that I purchase has been found at garage sales or thrift stores. The end result makes my home look well decorated but I am able to do it on a budget. These are some of the pictures and decor I have used.


The completed tortilla warmer.

Tortilla WarmerThis is a fun way to warm up tortillas and to keep them warm on the dinner table while assembling burritos or tacos.


The completed Crochet Wire Bangle Bracelet with Hemispheres

Crochet Wire Bangle Bracelet with HemispheresUsing wire from old transformers, you can crochet a very beautiful jewelry, for example like this bracelet. The hemispheres look like unusual flowers.

Button Star OrnamentThis craft can be made using collected buttons left over from old clothes to make a star to decorate your Christmas tree. I used wire from an old transformer, so this project cost almost nothing. You can use any other color of buttons.


Using tongs for your toaster.

Use Wooden Tongs on Your ToasterIf you have trouble getting toast out of your toaster because the toast doesn't pop up enough above the top or because you have sensitive fingers I highly recommend using wooden tongs.


The completed sweater

Ugly Christmas Tree SweaterMake your ugly Christmas sweater yourself! The advantage of this project is that the sweater will not be damaged. After the holidays are over, you can rip off the beaded organza ruffles and wear your sweater as usual.


The completed Japanese Style Chocolate Roll Cake

Japanese Style Chocolate Roll CakeMy whole family loves this dessert because of its super soft, fluffy cake and very delicious chocolate ganache. For this dessert you need to spend money on 200 g (0.44 lb) of dark chocolate, but this is the only expensive ingredient and it is only used in the ganache. My family has a very humble life, but I think that it is very important to please our loved ones with something very tasty at least 1-2 times a year.


Finished Ruffle Christmas Tree

Ruffle Christmas TreeThis small Christmas made of organza and hot glue will perfectly decorate your interior. It's lightweight and durable, so you don't have to worry about dropping it. You can insert a Christmas garland inside.

Double Glass Framed PictureSomehow I had collected several pieces of glass from picture frames over the past few years and came up with this idea how to make an all-glass picture frame.


The completed Christmas bulb

Sticky Tape Christmas BulbThe simplest sticky tape is enough to decorate your Christmas tree. I figured out how to make a Christmas bulb out of transparent duct tape only using expired eyeshadow. Instead of eyeshadow, you can use any powder (of course, a powder that is safe for health), for example flour. So it will cost you almost nothing.


A collection of Origami Butterflies

Origami ButterflyWith just a few simple folds you can make this easy and impressive paper butterfly.


Using the gloves while dusting.

Cleaning Dusting GlovesNylon perfectly helps to clean the glass and make it shiny just like microfiber fabric or newspaper. It is quite difficult to clean small curved glass objects with a newspaper or a piece of fabric. In such cases, nylon gloves are simply irreplaceable.

Origami BagThe design of this bag was inspired by origami. The bag has the shape of a regular hexagon. I decided not to overload the design of this bag with unnecessary décor, since the flower formed from the folds of fabric is a sufficient decoration for it. You can change the look of this bag and use it as a purse or a shoulder bag or wristlet or pouch or minaudière.


Protecting the end of your faucet.

Protecting Your Sink FaucetThere are lots of ways to help keep your kitchen sink looking new. Here's one more.



The completed Porcelain Flowers

Porcelain FlowersI had some plaster of Paris and wanted to use it for a craft item. I found out that I could make my own porcelain looking flowers.


A cut banana next to a lid to fit.

Banana SaverYou just need a banana, a knife and a lid that fits the size of the banana from your bag of lids that everyone saves, a cutting board and that's it. First, you cut the banana in half. Eat 1/2 and save the other half for later or tomorrow.



An old wooden chair with a wicker seat.

Information on Wooden Chair?I have acquired this very old looking chair and I have spent some time researching trying to find out when it was made, if it's a desk, dining side, or school chair, and not looking for an appraisal but maybe some educated opinions on the value. Any information would be greatly appreciated or direction on how to find the information. Thank you and have a great day.


Information About Thomas Kinkade Print?

A vintage painted table lamp.

Information on Vintage Lamps?I have two lamps I purchased at a thrift store. I thought they were very unique and different. I have searched and searched but I am coming up empty handed on finding out the makers, age, value, or anything. I have found very little information for the Bohemian one but not in my language. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
