Ordinary Box As A GiftHere's a great way to save money on gifts and get the kids involved too. This particular gift idea is so easy and says "I love you" so well. Make several of these keepsakes and give them to grandparents, aunts, uncles, and anyone who needs a smile.
Gooey Gummy CandyMany kids love the gummy candy you buy in the store, so why not make your own for less money. You can also use small Halloween cookie cutters to make them into cute little shapes for Halloween!
Convert Belt Into A Dog CollarA good way to recycle old belts is to turn them into dog collars. Measure your dog's neck, then add 3-4 inches to the measurement. Cut the belt to the appropriate length, rounding the end. Make new holes using an awl and a hammer.
"Mouse" PadKids will enjoy making this cute mouse pad to decorate their desktops. A great study buddy that will be quiet as a mouse!
Bunny Plant PokeCreate a cute bunny from a wooden spoon and insert it into a plant or bouquet of flowers at Easter.
Ribbon Shamrock PinCreate a shamrock from a 12-inch piece of ribbon that is at least 1/4 inch wide. I found that the wider the ribbon, the easier it was to create. Now you have no excuse for not wearing green on St. Patty's Day!!
Recycled Zipper Flower PinUse old zippers to create flowers for pins, shoe clips, photo frames, etc. I prefer the zippers with silver metal teeth, but the nylon zippers also work for this project.
Easy Owl ValentineKids will enjoy creating these quick and easy valentines for their friends. Best of all, they're inexpensive to make!
Pumpkin RollsGive your extra toilet tissue a festive look this fall with some fabric and a few craft supplies.
