Cheap and Easy Projects

Thursdays always turn my attention to the weekend.  I have a rare free weekend coming up, so am excited to find a project to do.  Perhaps you also have some free time...or are at a loss as to how to keep that play date a fun experience.  Enter DIY blogs!

Dollar Store Crafts has a great idea if you still have leftover plastic eggs from Easter.  They show you how to make a fun centerpiece with tealights.

Are you feeling a little ambitious?  Build an ottoman!  Thanks Home Life.

Do you have a bunch of old t-shirts that haven't made it to your donation center?  Maggie Makes has guidelines for t-shirt yarn, and so does Polka-Dot Pinapple.

Katie, what can I do with t-shirt yarn?  Oh, the possibilities are endless, but here is my favorite - just look at those colors!
