DIY #1: Homework Message Center
DIY #2: Brighten Up Car Headlights
Use toothpaste on a cloth. Run it on in little circles then rinse off.
DIY #3: Dora Sundress
I found the perfect material for making a sundress at Joann fabric store! I sewed it up by hand and sewed on the ribbon straps. It was a quick project that I was able to (mostly) get done in one night. And it was a big hit when I finished it. :)
DIY #4: Glo-Stick Bathtime
Another idea I found on Pinterest that had to be done. :)
Target sells packs of 15 glo-sticks in their Dollar Deals section from time to time. One of the last time I saw the $1 glo-stick packs, I bought one. Then we ran the girls a bubble bath that night and cracked half of the pack. We tossed the sticks in the bath tub then turned out the lights. It was seriously fun. :)
DIY #5: Book Nook
Abby grew out of her crib sometime ago and so we've had a useless crib sitting in the playroom that just kept having stuff thrown on it. It was just wasted space in a small apartment that can't afford wasted space. I found a really neat idea for Repurposing A Drop-Side Crib on Pinterest. But I didn't have the money to spend to turn it into a desk. So using what I had around the house, I went a different way.
DIY #6: Make Your Own Party Decor -- The Very Hungry Caterpillar
I needed a way to have bottles of water and juice boxes readily available to my party guests and keep them cold at the same time. I went to the dollar store with the intent of getting some small styrofoam coolers to paint...however, the coolers were too tall and not as wide as I needed. I improvised and bought some white bowls that were a good depth and had a really wide top. I brought them home and painted the rims to match the dots from 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' story.
After the dots the dry, on one bowl I painted the sun from the story. On the other bowl I painted the caterpillar. They make great decorations on the table while being useful.
