1. Whip up these creamy, booze-optional tequila pops and freeze them in paper cups.
To modify the recipe so it doesn’t include booze, add an 1extra 1/8 c lime juice and 1/8 c condensed milk to keep the flavors even and balanced.
2. Thread inexpensive perler beads onto wire to make this chunky tricolor statement bracelet.
It will probably take you less than an hour to make from start to finish, which makes it the perfect craft for a weekend afternoon. Measure your wrist before you begin so that can be sure that your bracelet doesn’t slide off in the middle of the day!
3. Trace your way to a two-hour accent wall using a cardboard stencil and a paint pen.
Use a sharp craft knife to cut out your cardboard stencil to make sure you have two lines. And follow the instructions to attach the stencil to your wall each time you use it — this isn’t a project where you want to accidentally let the stencil slip partway through.
4. Update your old night light with vellum to make it look modern (you don’t ~have~ to cut out a diamond shape) so you can always see when you make your 3 a.m. trip to the fridge.
You can always cut out a shape that you (or whoever’s bedroom it’s headed toward) like. Instead of free-handing, you can print out a piece of clipart to use as a stencil, if you’d like. Then, because it’s simply secured with a wire to the nightlight’s base, you can change it out whenever you redecorate.
5. Cover inexpensive spiral notebooks with pretty wrapping or scrapbook papers to make classes (or journaling, or budget-keeping) a little more exciting.
Getting the paper just right is a classic case of measure twice, cut once. You can fudge this a little by creasing the paper around the edges and taping it down on the inside cover, but the Mod Podge technique shown in the tutorial will keep the paper more secure for longer.
