I don't know about you but I am always forgetting my reusable grocery bags. I needed a hook to hang them where I would see them. I cleaned up this old garden tool and screwed it into the wall. Very useful and cool..
The outside of this book looks like a regular book. But when you open it up a secret compartment is revealed. I used a jigsaw to cut the through the pages and them applied a sealer around the inside. Just don't forget what book you put the stash in.
I glued some milkweed pods together and then painted them a soft pink. Red would look great but all I had was pink. Then I added some beads in the centers and stems. The piece of birch bark makes a great looking vase.
A rose is a rose is a rose.. unless it's a maple leaf. With a little folding I turned some beautiful fall leaves into some beautiful roses. I don't know how long they will last but even a real rose doesn't last forever.
If you break open a glow stick you get a little glass vial with the liquid glow. I poured that into a jar and now it glows. The stuff is non-toxic but be careful with the glass vial. These glowing jars will make great Halloween decorations instead of candles.
These aren't pretty but they work great. I saved the lint from the dryer and put it in cupcake wraps. Then I poured melted wax from broken candles over it and let it cool. When I put in in the wood stove and light it I get a good long lasting flame to get that sometimes damp wood started.
I have pine trees so I have pine cones. I dipped these in some wax from some broken old candles. They are very pretty and I think they make good fire starters. I do have a wood stove and they may be used for that.
I used five of somebodies grandmothers doilies for this lamp. I soaked them in a paste mixture and applied them to a blown up balloon. When it was dry I popped the balloon and put a string of lights inside. It is very pretty. I wanted to make it hanging but I didn't have the right kind of light fixture.
These are water bottles cut down and taped on the top to make a smoother edge. I added some decorative paper inside and punched holes for handles. You could write on the paper before being inserted in the bottle. Just fill with candy or a small gift or a trick or treat.
I really love"picnik" photo editing and when I have a photo that is really kind of boring I like to spice it up. This is a premade birdhouse that I put a new roof on. I used circles of drink cans for shingles. Then I put some wire that I spiraled on the top for pictures or cards. I glued some can parts to the bottom to add a little more color too.
