These mugs are super easy to make and they’re also pretty inexpensive.  All you need to buy is the mugs, which you can get at the dollar store for under two dollars each.  As the blog says, you need to move quickly when doing this or else the nail polish will dry and it won’t work out for you.  To see the tutorial visit:  http://diycandy.com/2015/04/diy-marbled-mugs-with-nail-polish

These napkins can be elegant, sassy, classy, trashy, whatever you want them t be really.  I tried tie-dying a couple for some casual napkins perfect for summer barbecues.  Then, I decided to go down a more formal path.  Subtly dying napkins pale purple actually makes them quite dressy, perfect for entertaining or Sunday night dinner.  To see the tutorial visit: http://blog.erikarax.com/archive/2014/7/6/di-dyed-napkins

Continuing with the napkin theme, here is a super easy tutorial for napkin rings, because I can read minds and I know that you were just thinking that you need new napkin rings.  Even if that’s not what you were thinking, what goes better with your brand-new napkins than fancy napkin rings?  Also, you don’t even need a kiln to make these, so I really don’t see a reason why you wouldn’t give these guys a try.  For the tutorial visit:  http://www.almostmakesperfect.com/2015/05/27/diy-faux-ceramic-napkin-rings/

What are air plants you might ask.  An air plant, you see, is a plant that doesn’t need soil to grow and doesn’t have any roots, it can grow wherever you place it.   This is a very easy DIY that will instantly make you 10x cooler than all of your friends without air plants hanging on their walls.  To see the tutorial visit:  http://www.homeyohmy.com/diy-air-plant-hangers/
