Homemade Wine Cork Coaster or Hot Plate

Wine cork coasters or homemade hot plates

I love this simple, but oh-so-useful homemade hot plate you can make from wine corks. The suggestion to ask around at local bars is brilliant. I’ve loved the wine cork crafts but wasn’t sure where to get them or how to keep them together.

See the tips at Sweet Paul Make.

(PS if you can’t find a local source apparently you can get them on Amazon. Who knew?)

Homemade Garage Tool Hanger on a Budget

Homemade Garage Tool Hanger on a Budget

This is super simple and less than $10 to make. Space your large nails how you need them for the tools you keep on hand. Get them off the ground for longer-lasting tools and easy access, not to mention less clutter in your way while you’re trying to work! Brilliant and inexpensive version of storage racks that cost too much from the store.

See how they did it at Our House of Paint.

HOME Draft Excluder So Cute

I love this cute draft excluder idea – better than just a random length of fabric, this draft dodger spells out the word HOME. You could also do a child’s name or your family name if you preferred. Cute idea for making a traditional energy-saving idea a little more personalized.

See how it was done at Starrilicious.
