Call it a compilation of all the crazy projects I've come up with over the years. Call it a how-to for things around the house. Call it whatever you like :) It's what I do everyday. My blog is really just a way for me to share what I've learned over the years about home improvement, interior design, organization, diy, crafting and home repair. And most importantly it comes from always working on a budget and forever wanting to fend for myself when it comes to anything. I hope you enjoy (and learn a few things along the way :)

Make a footed candle at Ikea for $1.30 : )

My daughters and I went to Ikea for fun over spring break and found an inexpensive way to improve the inexpensive scented candles they have (For .79 cents).  Right next to them were some .49 cent small glass candle holders.  And before our eyes we created a much more attractive candle holder for 50 cents more.

The before and after right in the same photo.  Two people around us commented...what a great idea...and picked up a few of each ).

Use a glue gun to connect the two together (just like my dollar store apothecary jars and Bath and Bodyworks footed candles).

These even look more modern for a home with cleaner lines.

Happy hunting for ideas of your own.
