10 Creative Ways to Wrap Presents Without Wrapping Paper

10 Creative Ways to Wrap Presents Without Wrapping Paper

I thought these were really cool ways to wrap gifts that didn’t involve gift bags and tissue paper – my go to.  I haven’t wrapped with paper in years and one of the gifts I bought this year needed to be wrapped and I failed miserably!  But wrapping gifts in a creative, DIY way seems to be a good final touch to whatever it is you are giving someone – that extra little oomph of care.  So, I hope that you will enjoy this article and take some ideas and apply it to your own gifts this season.

The Best DIY Shoe Storage Ideas

The Best DIY Shoe Storage Ideas

I don’t know about you, but the bottom of my closet is a madhouse of shoes for all seasons and there doesn’t seem to be a way for me to organize them in the least.  So, I came across this post and I thought that I would share it, since I’m probably not the only one with this shoe dilemma.  Some of these ideas are really ingenious and I’m just trying to figure out which one would work best for me in my closet.  I don’t have a lot of extra room which is why they are all on the floor in their boxes and I have to root out the pair I am looking for.  So, pick whichever one of these ideas works best in your home and get those shoes organized!

I thought I would share an all-encompassing article for DIY projects for every room in your home.  It has so many great ideas that you are bound to find at least one that you will want to do.  I love the whole DIY thing, got that from my husband – he can create anything out of the most basic things.  Besides, you give it your own twist and it is a unique piece of furniture or accessory instead of some store-bought item.  So, have fun and make something great for your home.
