Five DIY and crafts projects you can make in an hour or less

I love seeing a custom painted accent wall or piece of furniture I’ve built turn out beautifully in the end. Sometimes, though, the small projects that take a whole lot less time turn out just as great.

Here are five DIY and craft projects for your home that you can complete in an hour or less.

Bottle into a lamp

Did you know you can take just about any bottle and turn it into a lamp? That’s what I did with this vintage wine bottle I found at The Insyde Outsyde Shop.

Fringe it up

Embellishing things like pillows, lamps or other small home accessories adds just the right amount of punch to a space. I love making fringe from duct tape for embellishing.

Faux jadeite

I love vintage jadeite, but it gets pricey. I came up with a way to get the look for way less.

Custom lampshade

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve found the perfect lamp, but then finding the perfect shade to go with it has taken forever. One fix for that is making your own custom lampshade using any material you want.

Custom knobs

Ever since I discovered how easy it is to make your own custom knobs for furniture, I haven’t stopped thinking about what all I can make into a knob. Read this tutorial to start coming up with your own ideas for custom knobs.
