DIY Drink Holder

I've been searching for outdoor patio ideas for my home and this idea/craft is perfect and practical.

Make your own drink holder by using a used (and clean) soup can. Drill a hole in the bottom and attach a long rod with two washers and bolts on each side.

Turn a Chandelier Into a Dessert Display

If you love taking a vintage item and making it your own - this next project is perfect for you. Take and old chandelier and place it on a table. Attach plates to the top of the stems that are used to hold the light bulb.

Be safe when creating this vintage look - make sure the light is not plugged in!

Pitcture Idea For A Trip

I came across the picture on Pinterest and I had to share it. This is something I've added to my list of "must-do's!"

Cupcake Frosting In Minutes

Who knew?! I may be the last person finding out about this little gem, but it's still worth it's own post. Just before you pop out your freshly baked cupcakes from the oven, place a marshmallow on top to create a simple layer of icing. This is great if you are running out of time or ingredients.


Simple Tray/Centerpiece

Your style changes pretty fast these day, but you don't need to spend a fortune creating a sophisticated or edgy look around the house.

I've posted a few things about different ways to use picture frames, but this one is my favorite. Use the frame as a tray under flowers or any centerpiece to give an extra dramatic look. Use a unique pattern as the picture inside the frame or a simple color to spice up the dinner table.


DIY Tire Ottoman

Using rope and a couple of pieces of plywood - you can create your very own ottoman! If you love to build your own furniture or crafts - this is something that you will want to try out for yourself!
