Don’t get me wrong, I love a good labor-intensive DIY project. Sometimes, though, life just gets a little too crazy to bust out the staple gun and power drill.
Such has been the case for me lately, so I’ve been getting my DIY fix when I can by doing a bunch of small, easy projects.
I started with a classic: the old paint-the-inside-of-a-jar/cup/vase.
I never knew how much I needed a match-striker in my life until I read this tutorial by Jenny Komenda of Little Green Notebook. This is super easy – just throw a bunch of matches in a container and glue a piece of the striking paper on the bottom. The end.
As a kid, I used to spend hours making beaded earrings and necklaces. Over the long weekend, I finally dug out my needle nose pliers and put together a simple pendant necklace using pieces from a pair of old earrings.
Can’t beat instant gratification.
