Handsome New House Numbers

New homeowner Maggie, from Polka Dots in the Country, noticed that she didn't have any numbers on the outside of the house that would indicate their address. She set out to remedy that problem with some wood and stain leftover from other projects.

Old Tennis Racket Wreath

If you are a crafter or a maker or a collector, chances are you have enough in your stash to make just about anything at any given time! That's the case for Kathy at Petticoat Junktion, who challenged herself to come up with some spring decor using stuff she already had on hand. Here's what she came up with: a twig wreath form, a flower, and an old tennis racket.

Rescued Planters

"I was in need of some planters for my back patio, but didn't want to spend too much money," says Amy of Sweet 'n Sour Gumballs. Imagine her delight when she spotted these large, decorative planters being put down next to the trash bins on garbage collection day in her neighborhood.

Tea Towel Basket Centerpiece

I love this simple table decor idea from Chiara and Ilene of One O. All you need is a tea towel to make this cute basket centerpiece. "Centerpieces are usually important aspects of the table, whether they’re just decorative or pretty and functional. So having a chance to make one up from things you have at home sounds like savour to us!" they say.

Old Frame Becomes a Blooming Wreath

Looking for a fresh new look for her front door decor, Cindy of Little Miss Celebration was inspired by the silk peonies that she spotted at her local craft store. She thought of a unique way to display them right there, on the spot. She just needed to withdraw a frame from her collection of old ones that is gathering dust.

DIY Rustic Arrow

Scavenger Chic's Joan loves working with pallet wood so much that she started to panic as her stack of pallets dwindled. Luckily, she found three pallets leaning up against a dumpster, so she was back in business! Check out her latest pallet project.

What Could Have Been a Tear Down Becomes a Guest Cottage

Usually the rescues I feature are at least small enough to haul home in a truck. This one, on the other hand, is a bit bigger than that! When Angie at Knick of Time purchased her home, this old outbuilding was on the property. She tells us, "A woman who grew up in our home, came for a visit last year, and she said they told their dad years ago, that he should tear the old building down – that’s how old and run-down it was."

Button Name Sign from Old Fencing

When Ashley's brother showed up with this dingy section of old fencing....she knew immediately what she was going to do with it! She'd been looking for the perfect piece of weathered wood to make a unique baby gift for her pregnant sister, and this old wood completely matched her vision.
