How to Take Apart a Pallet Without Using Power Tools

Twinkling Fall Topiary With Lights in Just 30 Minutes!

Fall has always been my favorite time of year -- between the crisp weather, the coziness of the season, football games, and good food, what's not to love?? More than all of those things though, I am a color girl -- I love color in my life -- so when the trees are turning, I start getting giddy! This project livens up my living room, and I'm so surprised of just how quick and easy it was. (I did this in just 30 minutes!)We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.

Upcycle Your Popcorn Tins Into Unique Storage

Discover the easy steps to turn empty popcorn tins into useful storage containers with several compartments! I use this technique to keep my accessories and tools in one place where they are easy to access. You can use the finished tins at home to keep all sorts of items neatly stored away and ready to use whenever you need them. This is a very simple DIY project that anyone can complete successfully with no fuss.

The Cheapest Closet Space Saver Ever!

I don't know about you, but my coat closet is always a wreck. There's just so many coats and so little space. Even after I go through our stash and clean out what we don't use anymore (which I have to do often now that my kids are growing so quickly), the closet is still a mess. I found out about this hack and was quite dubious if it would actually organize my closet, but I gotta tell you, it really works! And you know what I used to organize it? A soda can! Yup, you heard me. A soda can is what saved my closet.
