DIY Scarf Organizer


Here is a super easy and inexpensive DIY! We will file this one under the “Dollar Store Craft” section because everything you need to complete this craft can be found at your local Dollar Tree.  You can also make this in about 5 minutes or less….less if you choose to forgo wrapping the hanger in ribbon or cloth.


What You Need:

Plastic Hanger

Ribbon (or strips of cloth)- optional

Plastic Shower Curtain Rings

Clear Tape



Tape down one side of the ribbon up near the top of the hanger.


Wrap the entire hanger in ribbon and tuck in the end.


Add the shower curtain rings.


Thread through your scarves and hang.

DIY Gel Air Fresheners (Spring & Summer Scents)


Spring is here! I am ready for some warmer weather (though I will miss my sweaters and boots.) It is time to change out the scents too! This week I made these fun DIY Gel Air Fresheners. I did these in Spring & Summer Scents. (I did a set for Winter. You can check it out here.)


These are actually super easy to make. These are a great handmade gift idea too. You can use almost any glass jar, so it is a great upcycle project.  (I used old baby food jars.)


You can also use mason jars if you prefer.

DIY Fabric Covered Pin Board


For the last 3 years I have done ALL of my own DIY projects on the site; however, this project is actually from my friend Allie!

I always admire the fabric covered pin board in her kitchen. A couple weeks ago we were hanging out at her beautiful home and she offered me the pin board she used to have in her closet. I mentioned it would make a great DIY for my site and she told me how she made it.

I am not going to deconstruct the board, but I think you will be able to make this yourself if you see a few close up photos of the board.

DIY Cat Ring Dish



Here is another fun and super easy craft- DIY Cat Ring Dish. If you can color and glue…you can do this!


Not a fan of cats?….you could just as easily make a dog ring dish or a dinosaur ring dish! Just keep in mind you will need a plastic figure that has a long, thin and upright tail or neck so you will be able to stack rings onto it. (i.e. cat or dog tail or brontosaurs neck)

DIY Decorative Clothes Hangers


This was such an easy project- DIY Decorative Clothes Hangers! I have done so many DIYs here on the blog and I have to say this is one of my favorites.

Another great things about this project- you can totally make these on the cheap. I don’t know if you have ever priced decorative hangers- OMGoodness! I have seen decorative hangers priced as high as $25 each! I made these for around $2 per hanger.


I think these would also make a lovely gift idea….housewarming, shower, just because…..

I decided to make each hanger different, but I wanted the colors/patterns to compliment each other. I went with a romance theme.

DIY Picture Frame Storage Bins


A New Year is a great excuse to get organized! Here is a fun storage solution for little ones. These Picture Frame Storage Bins are so easy to make. My version is super inexpensive too… around $2.50 per bin.

If you have a child that does not read, then a photo bin is a great way to give him or her a hint where things should go. Since I have a 5 year old who does not read and a 7 year old who does read…I went ahead and added text to my photos.


I grabbed the plastic bins and the plastic frames for only $1 each at my local Dollar Tree. Your only other expense will be your photo and your glue or velcro.
