Not too long ago, I was making a project that required about 30 key chains. I was planning on buying them the next time I went to store. However, I came across some wire, and it hit me. Why not just make them? It was so simple that I couldn’t believe I hadn’t thought of it earlier.
Wire, wire cutters, a cylinder object, and two minutes later I had enough homemade key chains for my project.
Since it was not only super easy but also super cheap, I had to share it with you.
1. Gather your tools. You will need wire, wire cutters, and a cylinder object that is the size you want your key ring.
2. Wrap the wire tightly around the cylinder object
3. Remove the wire from the cylinder object.
4. Cut your wire. For light items, like foil shapes, you only need on loop, but for heavier items you will want two loops.
5. Press the ring together
Now you are ready to start your project.
This bottle display is pretty during the day, but it is beautiful in the dark. Not only does the light make the rocks glow, but it also makes a beautiful design on your table and wall. It will look great in any room, from a teenagers bedroom to the living room.
You will need permanent markers, fish tank rocks, a glass bottle, and a light to go underneath. Here is the battery operated led light I used.
1. Color the rocks with permanent markers.
2. Fill you bottle with the desired amount.
3. Turn on light and place underneath
Enjoy you beautiful light display:)

Here are 30 terrific ideas for entertaining in your backyard.
Summer is my favorite time of the year. It’s the time for family fun, cook outs, festivals, bon fires, and more. Last year we built a wonderful bar in our back yard. It’s a great spot to entertain, but it is lacking in entertainment, other than the fire pit. I wanted some ideas of fun family games that would could play, so I went on a search. Here is a roundup of 30 awesome ideas I wanted to share with you. I know I can’t try all 30, but it will be hard to choose because they are all so great.

During the Winter and Spring kids have so many days where they can not go outside, and these days it usually means they will be stationed in front of the television or some kind of electronic device. This bugs me because kids seem to be losing their imagination. So I have compiled a list of 12 games that can be made by kids (with help from adults for smaller kids) with items you can find around the house.
12 Indoor Games for Rainy or Snowy Days
1. Ball Toss
Use buckets for your targets. Mark them on the inside with
chalk or dry erase marker. Now you are ready to
start tossing balls in.
With Easter right around the corner, I went on my own Easter search. Of course, mine was not for eggs, but for creative decorating ideas instead. I ended up finding a dozen ideas that were not only simple, but they were also extremely creative.
1. Candle Holders
Here are five different vanity set ups that you can make yourself.
Unique vanity lights made with white Christmas lights and ribbon.
I love how the shelf has holders for the straightener and blow dryer. This is a great idea since you could store it while it’s still hot. I would have to add one for a curling iron as well, but worth it.
Love the idea of using an old suitcase as a vanity. I would make it float though; I’m not a big fan of the legs.
Mirror on the wall with two floating shelves underneath. Nice clean look.
I saved the best for last. I love all the storage they have fit into this area. The glass top is an amazing idea so you can see what is there without making a huge mess.
I was challenged by Michelle to find 25 ways to repurpose a dresser. This one was a little hard because most repurposed dressers I found were actually upcycled dressers. In another words, most dressers were still used as dressers they were just upcycled to look nicer. However, after several days of searching, I think I found a good list. Some are used as storage but not for clothes…..
25 Ideas to Repurpose a Dresser

Here they used a long dresser to make a unique
kitchen island with plenty of storage
2. ( right) Bathroom Vanity
A long dresser turned bathroom vanity.
I love this idea so you may see it this
summer when we redo our bathroom 🙂
