Exorcise your collection of outdated, scratched cds.... exercise those tired old dogs or guns or whatever they're calling biceps these days.... do both at the same time by making a dumbbell out of old cds. It's easy as can be, check it out here at Daily Danny.
Oh my... I'm a little turned off by the sports insignia and the idea that this guy probably drank all the beer in each can responsible for each tab himself, but who am I to be dismissive of this fine lad and his meticulous skills. Maybe he got all these tabs drinking Tab with his church group. I actually am coveting the chain mail a lot myself, simply because I think my kids would dig it. Suddenly imagining myself scavenging a whole lotta tabs.... if only for the head piece... Found at makezine.com.
I'm so excited about this oh-so-simple and extremely beautiful creation made from... you'll never guess it... plain old average egg cartons. Another great project for kids and adults alike. Thanks again to the awesome peops over at craftzine.com.
This is really cool. I've oft wanted to do make kaleidoscopes with the kid makers and tinkerers that I work with sometimes, but I've never seen a project that seemed quite manageable enough to do with nine year olds. But this one definitely is, and it's all reuse, to boot! Find yourself an old cd case, a yogurt lid, and a few other odds and ends, and you're in business. Found at makezine.com.
Oh MY yes, please please do and do NOT buy cheap, tacky, plastic crap from Hobby Lobby or Target or wherever to make your season merry. Not when you can make your own cheap, tacky, plastic crap! Well, it's cheap and it's plastic anyway.... More ideas for reuse wreaths at Alphamom. I especially like the white one made from plastic milk jugs... it looks so nice you'd almost think she bought it at Target for $19.99. Found at craftzine.com.
