Welcome to 31 Days:The No Spend Month. If you are joining for the first time, you may want to start on Day 1.
Since I’m not doing many outside activities this month, I’ve got some extra time on my hands. I’ve decided to do a few cheap DIY projects using materials I already have on hand.
I’ll be doing just a few of these (I’ve ** mine) but I’ve compiled 20 fun DIY projects using materials you might have at home for your own inspiration.
1. Take cute wine bottle labels and put them onto candle holders.
2. Dress up a plain bookshelf with fabric.
