The end of summer is the perfect time to start planning and preparing projects to get us through the upcoming winter. I have been reading about a number of inspirational projects the last few weeks. Here is a sampling:
DIY School Supplies
One of my favorite things about school was putting the brown paper grocery bag on all my schoolbooks – I could then decorate it any way I wanted. Why not go DIY with all your needed school supplies? Reuse binders, bring in a reusble snack bag, and more. Crafting a Green World has some more ideas…
Sheets into Tanks
One of our favorite blogs, New England through Yummy Mommy’s Eyes, recently featured a great project on how to take bed sheets and transform them into comfortable tank tops. This is a great idea for those vintage patterned sheets you often find! The tank looks super comfortable and is perfect for hot weather.
Apron Thrift Girl shared a beautiful dreamcatcher her daughter made using an old embroidery hoop, yarn and odds and ends. This is a great project for kids and adults and allows you use anything you have around the house. Imagine how nice these will look in your windows all winter!
I LOVE THIS PROJECT! Crafting a Green World featured this very easy project. It is a great way to reuse old toothpaste tubes. Though the project calls for Colgate tubes, use any tubes you have around the house.
