For those of us with little money I made a mini money belt for your ankle or wrist. This is out of t-shirt material and the whole inside is a pocket for your spare change or keys or i.d. It closes with Velcro and is stamped with my own scooter stamp.
I know everyone has one of these in their house because I see them at garage sales all the time. I painted a few pretty flowers on this one and hung it on the wall. It makes a great earring rack and so easy.
Wash and turn your potato chip bag inside out. Now you have another bag to gift wrap or storage. This one I turned down the top a couple of turns and use it for storing things. It is strong and pretty. Some chip bags come in really pretty silver and make great gift bags tied with a ribbon or twine.
I wish you could see this on because it is really cool for kids. I took an extra large t-shirt and cut it as shown. I left the collar to fit over the child's or adults head so the cape can flow behind. I added a peace turtle but any super hero symbol will do. Fun fun fun!
This is a very easy conversion from an empty gallon milk jug to a reusable snack or sandwich box. All that is needed is scissors and sticky Velcro dots. You might want to add some cooler stickers than my "3x" but that is what I found first and it decorates it a bit.
My daughter used to bowl a lot and we went through quite a few bowling balls. I ended up just stacking them in the garden and they weren't real exciting. Well now they are. I glued glass rocks to the one on top and is it dazzling? Oh yeah. I can't wait until the sun shines on them.
I have a bunch of bamboo stick place mats. I used to use some as curtains in a small window. I took one apart and made this to hang outside from the tree. I need a lesson in knots because mine are pretty rough but I like how this looks hanging up. Any other suggestions on what to do with these sticks?
I took wine corks and sliced a wedge off the bottom for stability and then cut a slice in the top for a name card or business card. I used a bread knife to do the cutting. This could be very useful for displays.
This purse used to have a peace sign on it but now it is completely different. I painted the handle gold and added a lot of scrap material fringe. I love it. This purse might look a bit like a little dog, and as a matter of fact it does shed little hairs, but it is fun.
I found this old bottle out in the woods and I cut off the bottom. I used a bottle cutter and some very helpful instructions on u-tube and I got a pretty clean cut. It just sits on this base I found at Salvation Army and looks great. I am going to make a bunch of these for my sons wedding out of wine bottles. They will look great on the porch during the reception. I am going to have someone slice a log up for the bases. Pretty cool.
