top 10 tutorials using items you already have laying around!

you've been here before, right?
then you know how much i love to reuse/repurpose/recycle items around the house.
most of the crafts/diys i do, involves items that i already have handy.

i scoured the interwebz to find my top 10 tutorials that require items that you [probably] have sitting around the house.
all of them take very little time, make great gifts and help save the planet!

here we go : 

2) plant seedlings in toilet paper rolls! 

3) super easy sunshine sugar scrub [this is a great gift for a new mama or a co-worker/neighbor/friend]

4) make leg warmers//boot socks from old sweater sleeves

5) paint-dipped silverware [these would be *so cute* displayed in a shadow box in the kitchen!!]

 6) terrarium made from small jars [i would LOVE to make this!!]

 7) sewn banner made from paint chips!

 8) easy candle upcycle [for all those 3/4 melted candles]

 9) make a wreath from a VHS tape!!! [this is soo clever!]

 10) make a stocking from an old sweater [this is on my list for next christmas!]

people are so creative, i love it.
any of these you plan to try out?
what projects are you working on?

thanks for reading, everybody. i appreciate you!
