Here are some fun and fabulous DIY side projects that I am most certainly going to try on my own--need a little fun to keep my mind occupied!

  1. Ooh I want to try basically all of these! I really like that try - I need something to go on my coffee table and that could be a winner.

    I find a lot of my DIY projects on Pinterest. I'd link to my DIY board if Pinterest wasn't down right now. I made this over the weekend - it was super easy! http://alwayswearsheels.blogspot.com/p/diy.html
