10 Amazing Things You Can Make With Duct Tape

I love this article.  I did not know you could make all the things listed with just simple duct tape, or that duct tape had become so artistic.  I love the different ideas and the different styles on the duct tape that are used.  I know there is at least one of these I’m going to try, I’m thinking the tray.  But these are really great ideas and I hope that you are inspired to do at least one of them.  Have fun!

I love this idea!  And I will be absolutely doing these.  Right now, my coasters are just blah and these are really cool looking.  Directions are given, even where to purchase the agate coasters.  Buy the coasters, paint with gold leaf and presto, fancy schmancy drink coasters.  As soon as I saw this, I knew I had to share the link.  That’s how cool I think this idea is.  Have fun!

DIY Mini Flower Garden Pots

DIY Mini Flower Garden Pots

I guess I’m on a role with the kid-friendly stuff.  I just thought this was a really cute idea and it is something to get your kids in on and gives them something to do one summer afternoon.  The project includes washi tape and markers and just letting your creative juices flow.  The final suggestion is to make a fairy garden using them and I think that is a cute idea on how to use them.  Or make a display of them on your patio.  Regardless, this is a super cute idea that seems really easy to do and so have some fun and do a few of these.

15 Yard Games You Can DIY

15 Yard Games You Can DIY

Here is a link to some really cute and fun-looking yard games for you and your kids.  I don’t mention kids a lot because I don’t have them.  I have a very high regard for parenthood, I’m just not cut out for kids, what with my mental illness and other quirks, it’s one of those blessings in disguise for me.  But, I wanted at least one post to be something for kids and adults alike, because the adults can play these games too.  They look like a lot of fun to make and to play, so I hope you choose one or two and have fun in the sun!
