Jewelry Hanger: Pick up you favorite rustic-looking broken branch from outside, hang it from a wall, and hang your necklaces and bracelets from it.
Handmade Dream Catchers: Conjure your stitching skills to make this beautiful ethnic piece out of string or yarn. All your dreams will come true that same night
Garland: Look around for strips and shreds of fabric and hang them from a string, suspended from the sides of a wall. It’s almost no cost and recycles some unused items very nicely.
Colorful Stones: Find some paint that you already have, and rounded stones just outside to create a real organic set of paperweights. Or even make them into magnets
Bookends: If you recently had a plumbing project, then there may be some leftover pipe. Get, cut and just paint them gold to make these, or create standalone décor on shelves.
Mobile: Tie together pipe-cleaners or tree-twigs, hang paper airplanes and hang the whole thing from the ceiling to create this awesome abstract center-piece.
Colorful Mug: Get any white cup or mug and make it more exciting by splash painting it with bright colors. Use either water-color for temporary stay, or acrylic paint for a more semi-permanent stay.
Feather Garland: Go to a pond or park and find feathers of geese and ducks or of other birds, spray or dip them with gold paint or glitter and hang them from a string to make a wonderful shiny décor item.
Colorful Arrow Tassel: Checkout some little craft-arrows from a shop, and re-purpose them with paint and a few pom-poms, and them everything from a string.
Color Vases: Ombre is the coolest new way to mix and create gradients of colors together. Give new life to old jars by turning them into ombre flower vases.
Enhanced Military Wear: Attach some earrings, buttons, colored ribbons and a piece of lace or doily to a vintage military shirt or jacket to produce a chic outer garment.
Fun Fruity Shorts: Get some worn white jeans, cut off their legs and dip them into some different color dyes and spot them with seed shapes to produce these cute shorts.
Tie-Dye Pull-Over: Grab a plain white long t-shirt, tie-dye, cut, and braid it to make a super cute summer slip-on blouse, slash, skirt.
Bold Bra: Take an ordinary black bra, and add a few vertical and horizontal straps to it and you’ll have a great fashion accessory for backless dresses and gowns.
Lace Short Shorts: With a pair of light shorts, roll of lace and some glue, you can create these awesomely attractive shorts.
