There’s always a double use for something! DIY projects are always an awesome and productive way of getting creative!
Suddenly, a stack of old-magazines becomes a table when kept together with string.
A can of soup, without the soup, can be used as a cookie-cutter.
A cup-cake stand can be used to display knick-knacks or to stack whatever you want on it! Candles, keys, jewelry…
A chain can become a multi-purpose hanger when you place hangers down the links.
Wine bottles can be used for water jugs, vases, candle holders or you can turn them into lamps.
Beer bottle lids can become decorative magnets.
Mason jars can become so much more – wind around and attach a piece of wire and presto! You’ve got a lantern. Or you could make a string of lanterns and place the little bulbs from a string of fairy lights inside the jars, or even the LED pretend candles! (Yay lights and shiny things)
If there’s nails on the walls that you don’t wish to use for pictures, you can hang your jewelry, coats or hand bags on the nails that is great for storage and decoration…
Old buttons can be made into earrings by gluing them on to earring backings that you can get from a craft store…
The list goes on!
Oh yeah… Getting inventive and re-purposing things definitely is AWESOME!
