DIYs for a swell dwelling

If you are totally jealous of your friend's awesome crib but don't have the dough to undergo a major room makeover, raise your hand. We got just the DIYs you need for overhauling your space and we promise you it's not rocket science. So take out your scissors and glue guns and get crafting!

Tassel garland

These garlands add flair to any drab wall in no time!

Materials needed:

1/2 sheet of 20" x 20" or 20" x 24" tissue paper Scissors Ribbon or cord

Steps:

Fold one piece of your tissue paper in half horizontally and then in half again vertically. Leaving about an inch margin from the fold line, start cutting your tissue paper into thin 1/4 - 1/2 inch strips. Carefully unfold along the vertical fold you made earlier and cut the tissue paper in half to reveal two tassels. Then carefully unfold each half, one tissue paper at a time. Take the unfolded tissue papers and roll tightly along the middle crease. Once you are done rolling, fold in half and   twist to create a small loop for hanging. Secure the loop with glue if you want. Create multiple tassels using the same steps. Insert ribbon or cord into the loops to create your finished garland. And your garland is now ready to hang!

Shoe box caddy

If you are a klutz, this DIY is exactly what you need to tame your clutter.

Materials needed:

Large shoe box Toilet paper cardboard rolls or rolls made with cardboard paper Wrapping paper Glue

Steps:

Take a shoe box and wrap it with wrapping paper with nice prints. Colour the cardboard rolls if you want. Arrange the rolls inside the box the way you want. Secure the bottom and sides of the rolls to the box with glue and let it dry. Store all your pens or craft supplies in this cute caddy. You can also store your cords here.
