Chalkboard Office Storage Jars

Erica from Craftivity Designs has been working on her home office and found a cute and thrifty way to store small supplies by repurposing baby food jars. Erica made the jars pretty with paint and then added chalkboard labels for organization. And isn’t everything just better with a chalkboard finish {wink}? This is such a simple project that would be useful throughout the house – spices in the kitchen, bath salts in bathroom, game pieces in the playroom…

NOEL Wall Art

Pottery Barn’s Noel Sign has become rather famous in the world of Christmas décor. I have seen it recreated many times, but this DIY from Christa at Brown Sugar Toast is by far the thriftiest! Christa got almost the exact look of those well-known letters by cutting them herself from a large piece of cardboard. How’s that for resourcefulness?

Paper Christmas Tree

“Oh Christmas tree. Oh Christmas tree. How lovely are your branches pages.” Pages? That’s right! This Christmas tree from Dana at Wonder Forest is made from repurposed music book pages. Dana cut paper squares a plenty and then stacked them up to make this pretty paper tree. If you can operate scissors or a paper cutter, then you’re fully equipped to make your own!

Recycled Magazine Storage Box

Using items from your recycling bin, you can turn a plain old cardboard box into a decorative storage bin like Gay from It’s A Hodgepodge Life did. Gay rolled a bunch of magazine pages and attached them to her box and then created a no-sew burlap liner to make the inside as beautiful as the outside. This is just one of many fun creations you can make from rolled magazine pages!

Dictionary Page Pumpkin

Like Jessica from A Smith of All Trades, you may prefer to skip right over the Halloween decorations and stick to fall. When Jessica wanted some inexpensive décor for the season, she grabbed a few foam pumpkins from the dollar store. With some old dictionary pages and Mod Podge, she gave them the more subdued autumn look she was after.
