DIY may seem like something that doesn’t interest you because most projects seem too extravagant for someone with no experience. However, there are so many incredibly easy projects that you can do that really are for novice DIY-ers and don’t require any fancy materials. Not only is it fulfilling, but it’s a great way to stay green by upcycling materials. Try one of these projects and build up the courage to continue on your DIY journey.


A fun project to do if you’re a student or have a kid is to make erasers! Just mold a shape using sculpting clay, bake for 15-20 minutes and you have a unique eraser ready for class.


If you’re looking to add something shiny to a room, jazz up some old candles with duct tape! Simply wrap a candle in either silver or gold duct tape and you have a brand new candle in no time.

Thumb Tacks

Everyone has a collection of single earrings in their jewelry box that has lost their partner somehow. Instead of letting them collect dust, simply use them as thumbtacks. To make them more uniform, you can paint them all the same color, or leave them as they for something truly unique.
