Fancy Tea Lights
It's easy to bling up plain tea lights with fancy tape. There is such a lot of choice and so many designs, colours, and patterns available that you can make them up for any occasion. Add sticky gems too for a bit more sparkle.
Organizing Handicraft Projects
Dollar stores are great. I rely on them to help keep me organized, particularly when it comes to handicraft projects. If you enjoy variety in your creative endeavours, you might like to keep projects and supplies organized by using the large plastic trays from your local dollar store. One tray, one project.
Easy Bead Sorter
If you work in beads, you know that certain sizes should stay together, even within their color. But who wants to hand-pick through beads just to separate them. I sure don't. So I was recycling one of the Dollar Tree scented bead air fresheners the other day and kept this handy little lid. Today it hit me like a big bag of beads!
Easy Headrest Pillow for Your Chair
I buy afghans to "frog" (unravel) for the yarn. Most are good quality yarn but sometimes I buy something that I find later, isn't worth the time. Tonight, in my $1.00 chair from Goodwill As Is, I made it worth the money.
Candy Box Into Treasured Keepsake
Often during special occasions and holidays we get rich, chocolatey, flavorful boxes of chocolates. The boxes are often tossed! Here is how to upcycle a favorite gift that keeps on giving.
Tissue Box for Managing Yarn
I use an empty tissue box to store my yarn in while knitting. The plastic around the pop up opening holds it in place and helps to keep it from tangling.
Clay Pot Craft For Valentine's Day
I made these clay pots for Christmas. You can change them up for Valentine's Day. Just change the colours and use Valentine candy. I used candy hearts. The girls loved them.
I store my ribbons in this Sterilite 6 Qt./5.7 L storage box container. You can purchase this container for $1.00 or less - at your local Walmart, Target, or Big Lots.
