1. Mason Jar Oil Lamp
Mason jars are one of the easiest objects to reuse and recycle. They can easily be transformed into lamps with floating wicks or used as centerpieces on tables.
Start by applying painter’s tape on both the inside and outside of a jar lid, then drill a hole that matches up to the size of your threaded nipple and coupling. Screw in your threaded nipple through this hole before installing its coupling.
2. Photo Booth Props
Photo booths add a fun touch to any event, helping your guests break through their shyness and create lasting memories of the occasion.
Make your own frames by cutting out an outline similar to that found on a Polaroid picture border. Or create them out of paper, tissue, Christmas tree fringe paper, or another decorative material for an original touch.
Be playful by adding props such as emojis, hats, and goofy mustaches on sticks for an entertaining photo booth experience. Additionally, decorate items like brick walls, flower arches or balloons.
3. Prism Mason Jar Candle
Candles are an essential part of making any room cozy and welcoming, yet can be expensive to purchase. Therefore, making your own for less could save both money and effort!
Reuse old mason jars or visit local thrift stores to find unique and vintage ones, then create candles from them as gifts for birthdays, Christmas, or other celebrations.
4. Color Block Crayon Candles
As a beginner to DIY crafting, it is wise to start small in order to hone your craft while building confidence before embarking on more ambitious projects.
Be sure to allow enough time for your candles made from crayons to cool and solidify before handling them, as rushing this process could result in cracked or uneven candles as well as helping prevent your crayon candles from melting too quickly.
