    DIY Cigar Box Ring Holder



    Cigar boxes were all the rage a while back and I bought way too many as I usually do, anticipating getting myself into making money with the new craze. Well, they are currently sitting in my craft room laughing at me!

    My thought has been to use the boxes to store jewelry making supplies, but I love the idea of using them to hold rings that I have collected through the years.  Great idea . . . easy too!

    DIY Shag Rag Rug



    A simple yet tedious project with gorgeous results!  I think it would be worth the time and effort put into it.

    This is one of those DIY projects I love that can utilize recycled items.  As usual, my thoughts immediate go to making one of these rugs out of denim. Also, I have seen curtains made out of open weave fabric that would work as the base.

    Easy Coffee Can Bird Feeders



    This is one of the coolest homemade birdfeeders I've ever seen!

    One of the best ways to observe nature close up is to put up a bird feeder, sit back and watch the birds in action.  They can be very entertaining!

    Here is a recycle crafty project that will take something you usually toss away and use it for an awesome purpose.  Colorful birdfeeders hanging from the trees in the garden add so much color and great for the dormant season when there is a scarcity of color outdoors.

    The birds will thank you!
