Today’s post is from a little project I put together back in 2012. It was very simple to do and fast forward 5 years and it’s still going strong. The plants have changed and the outside is a little faded, but the coffee bag planter is still together. All it takes is a little twine for the hanger, some drainage holes in the bottom and a small hole cut in the side for planting. Get creative and see what you can come up with!
I’ve run out of paper plates many times and in a pinch have used paper towels instead. Only for sandwiches and dry snacks. A easy solution was to cover the plates holders with new $1 shower caps from Dollar Tree! I wouldn’t recommend using this method with hot foods but it works great with snacks and sandwiches! When dirty just toss them into the washer with your cold wash items and line dry.
Take one terracotta planter, insert a Walmart bag so that the planter will hold moisture and the terracotta won’t dry it out too fast.Continue reading
Well I got a little thrifty this weekend. I emptied the rice I’d purchased into glass jars so that it stays fresh and doesn’t attract any pantry moths. Since the rice came in its own burlap bag with a zipper top and handles I couldn’t just throw it away. I decided to repurpose it. Added in a little cotton liner and now you have your very own bag for keeping your Kindle or Nook safe from scratches!
All in all it took only about an hour to do by hand since I don’t own a sewing machine. Wash by hand and dry the bag before starting to remove any left over rice dust.
