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?)

HOME Draft Excluder – So cute!

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.

Budget Friendly Kid’s Desk Organization DIY

Budget Storage for Kids Desk Area

Love these budget-friendly tin cans-turned-desk-organizers. Perfect for a kid’s room desk, art station or homework area to keep things organized without spending too much money. Indoor activities keep your child busy but don’t let that turn your house into a mess. The website didn’t specify but I’m guessing these cans are nailed to the board from the inside so they are study enough to hold everything. Clever!
