10 of the Very Best DIY Projects on Pinterest

Pinterest is one of the hottest places on the internet right now. But it can be a chore to wade through the thousands of DIY pins to find the best ones, so I’ve done it for you. While some of the following projects are incredibly popular, they’re all really cool. Stop searching and find your next project below.

Windowpane

You can often find an old windowpane at antique stores or even various places online. Once you’ve got your hands on one, find a place to blow up your photo or measure the panes and have your photo printed into six parts (or four parts, depending on your windowpane). The results, like this, can be fantastic – and pretty special if it’s your own photography.

Sweater Pillow Cover

This one shouldn’t be too difficult. First, find an old pillow or buy a new, comfy feather pillow. Second, pull out an old sweater from your closet that you don’t wear anymore, or go to Goodwill and buy one for cheap. Finally, just sew your sweater to your pillow in whatever way you’d like.

Doily Candle Holder

You can find out how to make these candle holders from Dream Weddings on a Budget, but it involves soaking cloth doilies in sugar starch before surrounding a balloon with the cloth. The site even has a step-by-step image to make the directions as easy as can be.

Easy Tie Dye with Sharpies

For directions, click through to The Art Girl Jackie. You’ll need a T-shirt, rubbing alcohol, a liquid dropper, a small plastic cup, rubber bands and Sharpie markers. Not only can you express your creative side, but this is a fantastic project to do with your kids.

Memory Jar

A memory jar like this is incredibly easy to make. Fill it with sand, add some shells and pictures, organize it and you’re done.

Crochet Cowboy Boots

These kid crochet cowboy boots are adorable. Additionally, depending on your knitting expertise, there are a ton of patterns you can make.

Hemp Pendant Lamps

While these hemp pendant lamps certainly aren’t quite as easy to make as some of the other items on this list, they’re definitely worth the effort. You’ll be gluing hemp string to a bouncy ball before deflating the ball to create the finished product.

Crayon Wall Art

Easy, easy, easy – and the results are amazing! Even the directions are right in the pin: “Just arrange in a heart and melt crayons with a blow dryer … add a picture in the middle to use it as a frame.”

Glitter Disco Ball

iPod Valentines

Finally, this one is just in time for Valentine’s Day! Using boxes of conversational hearts, you can make an iPod design and attach candy as earbuds. Much more information is here.

4 Ways to Go Green in Under an Hour

In this hustling, bustling world, even those who like the idea of going green sometimes don’t have the time. Between full-time moms, lunch-skipping executives and clock-watching managers, there just don’t seem to be enough hours in the day. That’s why these four ways to go green take less than an hour per day combined.

20 minutes: Sign up for organic produce delivery

Not only is organic produce delivery going to make you healthier, it’s also going to help you go green. Of course, you won’t be heading to the grocery store for fresh produce every week, meaning you won’t be wasting gas and putting more carbon dioxide into the environment. And with your refrigerator always full, you’ll hopefully cut down on those trips to McDonald’s and Wendy’s. Hey, that can’t hurt the waistline, either.

15 minutes: Get ready for bed earlier

There are a lot of ways setting a bedtime and sticking to it can be beneficial to the environment. For starters, you’ll turn off that television sooner and save some energy. But more importantly, a better sleeping pattern can help you be healthier, thus avoiding medicines, medical equipment and hospital facilities. So do whatever it takes to get enough sleep, and let your green head rest easy on that comfy feather pillow.

10 minutes: Switch to paperless bill pay

Paying bills online has two benefits. First, you’re obviously saving paper, and thus you’re saving trees. Second, that moment every month when your outrageous cable bill comes in the mail won’t put you in a bad mood for the rest of the day.

Remember to set a reminder to pay your bills. Or setup automatic payments – just be sure your bank account has enough money to handle that every month.

5 minutes: Showering

Save energy and take five-minute showers.

Look at it this way: If you normally take 10-minute showers in the morning, you can set your alarm and get five more precious minutes of sleep. If you’re really stubborn, set a timer so you definitely know when to jump out of the shower.
