Crafting and DIY projects are a hobby for so many people these days. Thanks to Pinterest and Etsy, the crafters and DIYers are just about taking the world by storm. I must admit, I absolutely love taking part in these creative ventures. In doing so, my goal is always to create something worth keeping and worth while. In other words, I always make sure it is something that will add value to my home, and cost me less than if I were to purchase it pre-made. I want to share 5 fabulous DIY projects that are easy to create and will be sure to enhance your home. I hope you will try a few!
