Shelf Sitter from New or Recycled Scarves
Sew cute scarf decor from old scarves or $1 store scarves. I had some felt laying around and an old scarf and decided to make a cute shelf sitter for my daughter's new baby room. Her theme is "owls". This took hardly any time and it looks great.
Fabric Scrap and Recycled Clothing...
Old shirts or leftover fabric make great coasters. Braid strips of 1 1/2 inch strips of fabric and tie several together if you want larger coasters. Take the braided strips and lay them next to each other creating circles.
Magazine Cover Bows
Did you know that magazine covers can be curled just like curling ribbon? I'm sure you have tons of magazines around. Get cracking with the strips of paper, scissors, and glue sticks. It looks fabulous especially when some are left straight.
Prevent Cabinet Doors from Slamming with Glue Drops
Make drops from hot glue as seen in the photo. Let dry. Glue the glue drops to the corners of your cabinet doors. The doors now shut with a soft sound.
Make Home Decor Crafts from Bed Springs
Purchase old bed springs from a thrift store. Decorate to your desire and give as gifts or use as decor in your own home.
PVC Pipe For Deep Watering
By sawing a piece of PVC pipe that can stick up from the ground about 5 inches and have about 7 inches below the ground you can have a great watering/fertilizing gardening helper.
