Do you still have candle waste from candles you have used in the last few weeks?
You can melt it and produce some new candles! 🙂
You don’t always have to buy new stuff to decorate your home!
If you want it or not: Christmas is in 7 weeks! 😀

In two weeks it’s already easter again!
And it’s this easy to create little easter baskets from old egg-boxes:
- Tear the egg containers apart and let them soak in water over night.
- On the next day shred the material further with a hand blender.
- Squeeze the unnecessary water out.
- Shape the paper pulp to your wishes (i.e. press it in a small bowl).
- Finally let it dry for at least 24 hours.
- Decorate 🙂
You have some paint chips left and an old frame in the attic?
Than you are lucky because you can easily construct yourself a reusable calendar or timetable.
As an alternative to paint chips you can also use scraps of paper or fabric!
You can find a step-by-step-tutorial here

Did you know…
…that you can reuse old wall calendars every 28 years?

With the peel of an orange and a bit of olive oil you can easily make a candle.
