10 Creative DIY Project Idea

  • Paper towel
  • Large stamp pad
  • Cards, stationery
  • STEP 1

    Cut off stem end with a sharp knife, and stand stem on a paper towel, cut-side down, for 5 minutes to dry.
  • STEP 2

    Press cut side onto a large stamp pad, then onto cards, stationery, and more, blotting on paper towel between presses. Vary stamp shapes with other vegetables, such as romaine lettuce stems or even brussels sprouts cut in half.

Toilet Paper Roll Art
Gather your supplies. For this project, I used plain old toilet paper roles, (the number you need depends on what design you decide on for your project, mine used around 13 I think...) glue, and a bushed metal appearance spray paint.Crush your toilet paper roll in half, and cut it crossways. You could measure if you like, but I just guess-timated based on the look I was going for. For my project, each toilet paper role yielded 6 "petals".Keep cutting until you've got tons of these, the basic unit for your piece. Begin glueing the "petals" together. How you do that depends on what kind of pattern you're going for.I found that using bobby pins (any type of clip would work too) to hold my pieces together was helpful. It gave the glue between each segment a chance to dry while I continued glueing...
Since a 5 petal flower shape was the basis for my piece, this is what most of my base units ended up looking like. After I made a bunch, I glued them all together in a pattern I liked, and also added a few other viney/leafy looking segments here and there.Once you're happy with how your piece looks, time for spray paint! (I used a metal finish paint, but any color will do!)

Make cherry blossom artwork with a recycled 2-liter soda bottle as a stamp! Here are the detailed instructions.Start by using dark paint to paint a branch on poster board. Branches are easy to paint. If you can’t paint in a straight line, it looks even better.I cut this piece of poster board in half lengthwise because I want it to look more like an art panel than a poster.
Once the branch is painted, let it dry before continuing with the stamping.Now let’s do the stamping. Pour some paint on a paper plate and dip the plastic bottle.

  1. Unzip and separate zipper.
  2. Form a belly button shape with one end of the zipper & hot glue to center of pin
  3. Twist and turn zipper around center shape, hot gluing as you go.
  4. Final touches…tack zipper down with hot glue to fill in any gaps
 Tips:Try using multiple colors of zippers. Don’t forget to twist and vary the zipper’s folds and widths.


Make your own modeling clay with 2 cups baking soda, 1 cup cornstarch and 1 ½ cups water. Combine ingredients in a saucepan, stir until smooth, then cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thick and smooth, about 4 minutes.

Cute Albino Animals

Albino Animals
Today me and the kids went online to my Pinterest  and I was trying to find a new animal unit and my 10 year old noticed a picture of an Albino goat which led us to looking up Albino Animals and we found a vast amount of animals pictures more than I could have imagine. This coming week we will be studying about albino animals and I wanted to share with you some of the animals we found.

Albino Animals are not like the others in the wild they are seen peculiar by their own species and noticed by predators they may end up with health problems and vision problems. Their rate to survival in the wild is virtually zero and as to finding a mate can be slim to none for most species. Here is a link for more details
