Put your kids to work and paint something together. It's fun, cheap labor (hah!) and you can get as creative as you like with bright colors and patterns. My daughter and I painted this chevron-striped nightstand together, and made some fun memories at the same time. You can click on the link to see what it used to look like. Find out what my favorite product* is that I rely on to paint perfect chevron stripes every time!


4. Decorate a Hat

Boutiques are fun to visit and browse, but the prices often deter us from making a purchase. Create your own boutique-style hat in just an afternoon and wear it proudly with a feeling of accomplishment! Start with a cute hat* and take it from there with my easy tutorial!


5. Bake Something New

Put a yard or so of your favorite fabric to use (no sewing required!) and weave a fabric trash can or basket. It's a great way to pull colors together in a room, as well as keeping small pieces in their place.


7. Paint an Abstract

Pick up an ugly thrift store painting (or use one you no longer love) and get those creative juices flowing with a DIY abstract painting! It's not nearly as hard as you think...and if you use this tool*, you won't even need to pull out a paintbrush!


8. Tie-Dye a Tee
