When it's spring, I can't wait to make everything colorful. I usually collect some jars that were used last year and rework them. I want to add enough colors to the old glasses to do justice to the spirit of spring.
I'm trying to turn my used glasses into beautiful glass vases through some DIY projects. You know that DIY projects can always help me a lot. The results of the craft can decorate my home very well. I put flowers in the colorful glass vases and the flower arrangements successfully embellish the room.
Today I'm going to share some practical DIY projects with you. I don't think you will miss her. You can first browse the post and see how to recreate the old glasses at home.
Last weekend I cleaned up my house and found a few old mason jars and other used items. I have an idea. Why don't you turn all these old mason jars into DIY vases or something useful? Then I looked for significant projects to finish my DIY craft.
By the way, I will also show you other simple DIY projects to make a busy weekend. I choose two tutorials to make a mason vase and a soap dispenser. Both ideas don't take up much time.

My wife wants a rustic look for our new house. Thankfully, living in the suburbs of a large city means plenty of pallets, which you can get for free or for just a few dollars. And free pallets means pallet projects, mostly for the backyard, now that I've completed installing a sprinkler system. Here's a great guide for how to pick suitable pallets and to tell whether they are heat or chemical treated, which can affect the quality of the wood. Disassembling is a snap, so you'll be ready to start building in no time.
After you have disassembled the pallet, however, there is an additional step. Whether you have reclaimed wood in the form of a pallet, a local wood seller, or from your own tree cut down in your yard, be sure to clean and sanitize the wood. Not doing so runs the risk of carrying germs into your home. An added bonus, cleaning will also help eliminate potential slivers. After the wood is dry, stain or seal to your tastes, and you are ready to start your projects.

We’ll start off fairly simple and work our way up to the more involved, wishlist items. We're first replacing regular wood boards in the instructions for pallet pieces to make a loveseat. Cut a template for the seat portion. You can make sure it will be a comfortable seat by comparing the curves to a couch. What you are paying attention to is the angle of the backrest joining the seat. Next, seal and stain the wood. Nail and / or glue the slats to the two template sides, and you have a nice loveseat to sit on and take a break in your garden.
If you have more room, say on a patio, for something bigger than a loveseat, then it's time to upgrade to a full L-shaped couch. This won't look as polished as the loveseat until the end. Start by cutting slats to size to hide the fact that the base is a pallet. This forms the seat and backrest. Add armrests and pillows, and get some cocktails – your couch is ready.
What's better than a day, especially if you have a sturdy tree or a covered porch? A pallet swing bed. The best part is that screwing together two pallets to make the bed and adding pallets for a backrest is half the project – almost as easy as the couch. Strap some rope to the four corners and hang the bed up, making sure it's level. Grab a book and get ready for a nice nap.

Speaking of beds, a pallet headboard carries the pallet theme inside the house. Another simple project, begin by measuring how big you want the headboard, ripping the pallets apart and sawing to size. Form a box with supports, nail the slats to the box, and hang the headboard on the wall next to the bed.

There's something to be said of just putting liner on a pallet and calling it a planter. An actual planter takes a few more steps, but isn't much harder – it's essentially making a box with wood. To give a planter the pallet look, leave gaps in between boards. As with the strawberry planter at the link, you can let bark and the plant fill in the gaps, or use planter lining to stop dirt and soil from spilling out. Bonus points for planting edible flowers for not only practical but aesthetic purposes – which is what I'm going to do to keep my wife happy.
Dog bed frame
While you are napping on the bed swing, your canine companion can have his own bed outside. A dog bed frame, meant to hold a cushion and some blankets, will ensure your pooch can enjoy the great outdoors from behind eyelids at the same time you do.
Pallet shelving outside can be used to store anything from gardening tools and toys to barbeque utensils or potted plants. Inside your home, they fit nicely in a pantry, ready to hold canned goods. Or, they make the perfect place to display art – or collectible figurines, for me.
My wife wants a pool. I don’t want to rip up the sprinkler system I just installed. Enter the above-ground pallet pool. Though they use towels to cover any jagged edges, I'm thinking I can get away with diligent sanding before putting the liner in. I probably wouldn't make the pool as wide, though, so as not to block sprinkler heads. Otherwise, this simple-but-time-consuming project adds a water feature to your backyard for a fraction of what it would cost to install an actual pool – or buy an above-ground pool.
The grand finale, and the most complex project by a wide margin. But, it's extremely practical, and can fit some of the previous projects inside. I present the pallet shed. Buying all the wood for a shed would be expensive. But pallet wood is anything but costly, leaving plenty of money for cinder blocks for a base, nails and screws, mortar, shingles, hardware to mount a door, and glass for windows. I also suggest insulation, which is not included in the instructions at the link. The original builder made a 20’x8’s shed for about $ 500. A shed from Home Depot will cost double that for half the space. The major question you have to ask is whether your time is valuable as opposed to having a smaller shed, but not needing to build it – which will probably take at least a weekend or two. For me, I love the thrill of completing a project, knowing I built it – and that’s what will motivate me to build this shed.
One of the most important decisions you have to make on your wedding day is: How do you go where your hair is? Ok, it's not the most important decision you'll make, but it's still a big one!
Whether you are trying to grow your hair out (like me) or are getting extensions to achieve that nice "do", you still want your hair to be as healthy as possible. Healthy hair = beautiful hair!
Fortunately, this earth has given us so many natural ingredients that can help our scalp and hair look soft, feel soft, silky, and smooth!
Most of these natural elements can be combined to make as many different hair care options as masks, scrubs, heat protection agents and more. And they're pretty cheap too (which is a big plus!)
Here's a graphic picture that lists 8 of the best natural ingredients to get beautiful hair!
Another great oil and a natural ingredient that is not on this list is coconut oil! Coconut oil is generally just a great beauty item (in fact, on nights when I feel super lazy, I skip my usual skin care routine and just rub some coconut oil on my face)! Coconut oil contains ingredients that promote the general health of your hair! It makes hair strong and shiny and at the same time stimulates hair growth!
Some of these things can be used alone or mixed together to solve a variety of your hair care problems.
Clean your hair
Apple Cider Vinegar
There are so many reasons why ACV is good for your hair, but I'll give you the short version. The ACV's enzymes and acidity help balance your hair's pH and leave your scalp clean and healthy!
All you need is to mix 10 parts water with 1 part apple cider vinegar. Massage the conditioner into your scalp after regular shampooing and leave it on for about 2-5 minutes. After the minutes have passed, rinse it out and then condition it as usual!
Fix your hair
Honey is an amazing product that not only tastes good, but also has health benefits! When it comes to your hair, honey is a natural hair softener and binds moisture into your hair! Let it be super soft! This is a great solution for damaged or brittle hair.
It's really easy for this honey mask! All you need is honey! You want to make this mask after washing your hair normally. If the hair is still damp, massage about half a cup of honey into your hair. Leave it on for about 20 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water.
Sometimes honey can be so thick that it is difficult to work with. In this case, just mix in a little coconut oil to smooth the honey and give the mask even more benefits!
Moisten your hair
Another product that is great in itself! No need to mix this with anything. However, keep in mind that you want to use the coconut oil in liquid form. So if yours is firm, put a couple of tablespoons in a microwave-safe bowl and warm them up!
Then just cover your scalp with the mask and comb it through! You can only leave it on for 20 minutes if you are in a hurry, but I will be happy to leave it on overnight! If your mixture has been bought long enough, shampoo it out! After this mask, you no longer have to shampoo your hair!
Strengthen and grow
Both ingredients are POWERHOUSES when it comes to hair care! And when used together, they're perfect for getting strong hair that grows like Rapunzel's!
Olive oil is another emollient that makes hair strong and shiny! While egg yolk contains an element, is called lecithin, as well as protein,which are perfect for strengthening and moisturizing the hair!
You want to start with wet hair. Then combine 1 egg yolk with two tablespoons of olive oil. Apply this mixture to your hair, avoid the scalp and concentrate mainly on the ends of your hair! Let it rest for about 30 minutes, then rinse it off with warm water and shampoo to remove egg yolk and oil from your hair.
