Every year, I look for new and exciting DIY projects to make during the holidays.
I love to craft new and festive decorations for my home. The focal point of any wintery house is the Christmas tree. This year, I used blue lights to give off a chilly feel, and I’ve been looking for the perfect ornaments to celebrate all things winter.
That’s where this tutorial by Dave Hax comes in. He’ll take you step-by-step through creating an amazing DIY snowflake ornament, and all you need is a glue gun, some glitter glue sticks, and wax paper. It couldn’t be simpler!
You can trace pre-printed designs, or go rogue and design your own snowflakes.
Having roommates can be one of the most frustrating living situations ever.
I moved in with a couple of friends when I was younger, but that only lasted for about two months. Not only did they go into my room without my permission, but they never cleaned up after themselves. I always wanted to make our house look organized and pretty, but that wasn’t really possible with slobs hanging around.
Redditor NotElizaHenry knows my experience all too well. She even got rid of her messy roommate so that she could have the kitchen of her dreams! Two weekends and $100 later, she’d transformed her boring kitchen into a beautiful space.
She hated how the room looked while she was living with her messy roommate, so she first got right to work on scrubbing everything clean.
Something tells me that NotElizaHenry is going to keep that kitchen looking gorgeous. If you love what she did with this space and want to replicate it yourself, you can find the full instructions here.
IKEA is known for its huge selection of simple furniture options. Well, that and their notoriously impossible directions for assembling said furniture.
But if you’re looking for something a little more high-end (yet can’t bear to part with half of your savings), you shouldn’t overlook the big-box store. With a few key upgrades that are quite easy to execute, you can turn your run-of-the-mill dresser into an epic bookcase.
Have a look at how you can give your boring furniture a new life!
