5. Take a note
Want to get the kids pumped for their next school year? Try helping them make their own notepads and notebooks from their favorite food boxes!
Midwestern mom, crafter and Infarrantly Creative blogger Beckie dreamed up this simple tutorial that will help your family turn those old cereal and snack food boxes into truly snazzy school supplies. Don’t worry if you’re a novice crafter. This project couldn’t be simpler, and you’ll only need about 20 minutes to get the job done.
6. Jazz up your garden
Leave it to Martha Stewart to find a creative (and cute!) way to reuse those plastic berry baskets. The DIY maven transformed her baskets into adorable containers for Easter treats. But don’t restrict yourself to holiday crafting for this fun reuse idea!
Use Martha’s method to create pretty baskets to house your children’s small toys or to add a touch of fun to your garden or backyard landscaping. For a festive focal point in the garden, simply upcycle your baskets, fill them with air plants or succulents and place around your plot for a unique look.
