Here are some of the best and worst DIY ideas.
Yes, you read correctly. Cook up some bacon in a pan, collect the fat and pour it into a glass jar or cup with a wick inside, put it in the fridge to cool and harden. Before you know it, you have some… Bacon candles…
Have your favourite cowboy boots sadly parted with you and are sitting in an old corner somewhere. It is not the end of the world! You could turn them into a high-quality wallet. With a little snip here and a little snitch there, it will be done in no time.
Wooden Door Mat
These are super simple to make but look fantastic! If you want to give your home that rustic look, then this is definitely how to do it. Not only that it really comes in use too!
Changing A Lock
Have you ever tried to change a lock before? You got locked out of the house, and you’re just too damn embarrassed to call anyone, so you break the lock thinking it will be easy enough to repair after right? But it didn’t work out, and now you have a big hole in the door! Don’t worry; there are many people to call like locksmith eugene or. They offer a 24-hour service, so no one else will have the know a thing!
Leather Belt Chair
This idea just looks too damn cool not to try. Just grab a whole bunch of old belts (that you don’t use anymore) and weave them in and out and through each other. Keep doing this until it covers up the space you want it to. It is such a unique look that everyone will want to try it after seeing yours.
Secret Storage Book
If you have a big book lying around somewhere that you’re not too fond of, open it up and cut out a deep square through the pages with a Stanley knife or scalpel, (be careful!) And that’s it – to others it will look like an ordinary book, but you know what is really stored inside. (Whatever that might be!)
Bird Feeder Wreath
This is awesome if you like your wildlife! All you need for this is a circular mould, wide ribbon, some bird seeds, and some melted suet. That’s it, now go help feed our feathered friends over the winter months.
Yarn-Wrapped Painted Jars
If you are not too light-handed, this is a really good trick. Just wrap some yarn, string or twine around a jar, paint it (whatever colour you would like,) and then peel the yarn away once it’s dry: you will be left with a gorgeous luminary for tea lights or candles.
Suitcase Dog Bed
If you have a vintage suitcase that you no longer have any use for – transform it into a dog bed with a little tender loving care, some fluffy pillows and your dog!
