I have been hanging on to some gems the last few weeks! From soap dispensers to citronella candles, here are the latest repurposing projects circulating on the web:
DIY Soap Dispenser
This project really struck me, because I have SO MANY bottles lying around my house, stored away for future…something. Anyways, now I have some inspiration! And, this is super cheap to do!
The T-Shirt Shopping Bag
I’ve seen this done before, but I’m highlighting this certain post, because it has clear and concise video instructions…and it’s Martha Stewart! Is she cool these days? You have to fast forward through a gourd tutorial (which i admittedly watched) but stop around 5:30 for the t-shirt-bag instructions. Thank you to Crafting a Green World for the link…check out their site for some other ideas, too.
Ceramic Bowl Planter
This project is a little trickier, but only because you need a drill, which I don’t own, but it’s probably a good excuse to go out and buy one. If you are looking to get away from plastic planters, but cannot afford the expensive ceramic ones, head out to Goodwill or a local thrift store and search for a ceramic bowl. You are now a few steps away from having our own homemade planter. Visit the Thrifty Chick’s site for detailed directions.
AND last but certainly not least…Homemade Citronella Candles
We all know these are desperately needed during our New England summers. Investing in those candles can be expensive, but not when you make them yourself! Once you have the supplies, you can make dozens of these at once. Visit Design*Sponge for detailed instructions.
