Save Money With These Creative DIY Ideas

While we spend too much money on clothes, makeup, and sometimes unnecessary things, we tend to get stingy when it comes to buying things for the home. That’s when it’s time to get thrifty with some DIY projects that will save you money (for more clothes), and they’re actually cool.

This is excellent for breakfast in bed! And it’s not like we use folding trays that much tbh, so there’s your chance of changing it into a serving tray.

It might take time, but I can assure you this DIY pipe clothing rack is stronger and steadier than most racks you buy in stores. And it looks good, so, why not give it a try!

If you’re fed up with your plain, white curtains, and don’t want to spend much money, stencils are what you need. Add patterns with stencils and remodel your old curtains.

You only need a button-down top and ta-daa, now you have a new shirt and you didn’t even have to pay for it. This is how you save money, people!

Usually, lawn games are pretty expensive, but it won’t be a problem anymore. Not with this Jenga game you can actually do it yourself. Barbeque gatherings are about to become LIT!

How cool is this! And it even looks expensive! Get some embroidery hoops, any dishware you have at home and there you go, a fancy planter!

 

8. Painted dishware

No more discolored dishware. Paint will make them look anew, and if you’re talented, you can paint some pretty cool designs.

 

9. Picture frame – table tray

If you’re in need of a table tray, don’t go looking for it in stores when you can pretty easily make a new one from pictures frames (not necessarily the same as in the picture).

 

10. Utensil caddy holder

Make sure you don’t throw away old cans, because, with a little paint (or not), you can have a utensil caddy holder, or storage for anything you want.

 

11. Clothespin planter

And if you’re not fond of plants (totally normal), it can also be used for candles.

 

12. Quilt Batting for a new couch

Great solution for a saggy couch, since quilt batting, fluffs it up and saves you money.

 

13. Twine also works wonders

I just recently used twine to decorate a glass vase I had and trust me, no one thought it’s the same vase. The same goes for boxes. They’re bigger and we never actually say no to more storage.

 

14. Another reason to buy more wine (as if I needed one)

Start buying wine with corks and after a few bottles, you can have a brand new bathroom mat.

I already told you the magic of twine! This would also look pretty in Christmas trees, so why not start making some now!

Instead of paying a contractor, you can buy other things with that money. I’m already thinking of a million ways to spend the money.

17. Wall decoration

You probably have paper hanging around the house, so go get them and decorate your wall. This would also make pretty curtains.
