I think this terrarium could be my favourite one yet; it's beautiful as well as having just the right amount of novelty value. Click here to see you can easily make one yourself with a coffee pot, some air plants, sand, moss and various other decorations.

This wooden message board is simple to construct and could be made as large or as small as you wish. My favourite use for it is as a perpetual calendar, but you could instead display any short message, from 'Heck Yes' to ' Go Get It'!

This bookcase project cleverly uses wood and crown moulding to transform basic bookshelf units from IKEA into this grand piece of furniture which looks 'built-in'.
As a side note, I've always wanted a bookcase with a ladder!

Usually clay bowls are made with neatly cut edges, but I like this idea for just tearing the edges to give a rough look.
I particularly like that this technique makes the bowls look very much like egg shells, which is handy for Easter crafts!

Create the attractive 'letterpress' effect on your card crafts by making your own letterpress plates...using shrinky dink plastic.
You will need a die cutter machine, but it is definitely cheaper than real letterpress that's for sure!

It's heading towards Spring now, but I had to feature this project anyway because I know it would have been very useful to me when I attempted igloo-building a couple of years ago - at that time I only had one old plastic bucket!

Such an elegant and sophisticated way to display tea! This would be a lovely gift for any tea drinker, and I particularly love the inclusion of the 3, 4 and 5 minute tea timers in the middle.

You have to take a look at this clever idea for marbling ; instead of marbling the notebook directly and making it soggy and warped, apply the marbling to clear contact paper THEN stick that to the notebook. Smart!
