DIY Laundry basket

This is just a quick project that all ages can do to add some pretty storage ideas to your rooms. I picked up this little laundry basket the other day for $1. The gaps between it are pretty wide and open so I decided to weave some scrap fabric through it so I could store…

DIY- Seedpod sail boats

First, before you work on this project you will need an Australian Kurrajong tree. Hopefully there is one somewhere around your neighborhood. This is a good opportunity to get out there and take a walk early in the morning to see what your neighborhood has. Kurrajong trees are called bottle trees in Arizona. The aborigines…
