This one is perfect for anyone who loves body art but isn’t quite ready to commit to a real tattoo.
All you need is a Sharpie and some baby oil (or hairspray). Simply draw your tattoo design on your skin with the Sharpie, then rub baby oil (or hairspray) over the top.
The Sharpie ink will run, creating a temporary tattoo that will last for days.

Printing Blocks carved stamps are not only easy to make but they can also be used over and over again! All you need is a piece of rubber (erasers work great), a sharp knife, and some carving tools.
Start by sketching your design onto the rubber, then use the knife and carving tools to carve out your design.
When you’re finished carving, use ink or paint to stamp your design onto paper or fabric.
Voila! You’ve just made your very own printing block.

8. Duct Tape Wallet
This project is not only easy, but it’s also practical…win-win!
All you need is a roll of duct tape and scissors. Start by cutting two pieces of duct tape that are about 8″ long. Place one piece of duct tape sticky-side up on a flat surface, then place the other piece of duct tape on top, sticky-side down.
Next, fold up the bottom third of the duct tape so that it covers half of the second piece of duct tape (as shown in the photo above).
Continue folding until all four layers of duct tape are turned into thirds, then use scissors to trim off any excess tape.
Finally, use duct tape to secure the ends shut, and voila! You’ve just made yourself a brand-new wallet.

9. Faux Stained Glass Window Clings
If you love stained glass but don’t have the time or money for a real window panel, these faux stained glass window clings are just what you need!
All you need is some clear contact paper, tissue paper in assorted colors, scissors, and Mod Podge (optional).
Start by cutting your tissue paper into small squares or shapes…the smaller the pieces, the easier it will be to work with. Next, cut a piece of contact paper that’s slightly larger than your tissue paper pieces and peel off the backing.
Begin placing the tissue paper pieces onto the contact paper sticky-side down in whatever design you like.
When you’re finished placing all of the pieces, cover them with another layer of contact paper (sticky-side down) and trim off any excess before hanging them up in your window.
If desired, seal them with a layer of Mod Podge for extra durability.

All you need is an empty toilet paper roll, birdseed, peanut butter (or other nut butter), ribbon, and scissors.
Start by spreading peanut butter all over the outside of the toilet paper roll. Then roll the toilet paper roll in birdseed until it’s completely covered.
Tie the ribbon around both ends of the TP roll, leaving enough slack so that you can hang it from a tree branch.
Hang up your bird feeder and wait for feathered friends to come to enjoy a snack!
