River Stone Door Mat
Buy yourself a plain door mat with no decoration. Make sure it has holes to let water drain through. Gather a bunch of river stones (wash them before use) and use silicone to attach them to the door mat. Let that dry and you’ll now have a surprisingly good-feeling door mat underneath your feet.

Fruit Collage
The great thing about this project is that it’s really cheap. Go to your local hardware store and just grab some paint strips and then cut them up into triangles of different shapes. You really just have to put them in the rough shape of the fruits to get the idea of which it is. Simple, cheap, easy, and looks really nice.

String Star Art
Begin with tracing a pattern on paper. Lay the paper on your board and start nailing in the nails of your choice. Smaller nails are typically better. Once all the nails are in that you want to use, tear the paper away so only the nails are left. Then use the colored string (of your choice) to run the string through the nails and wrap around. Make sure to leave enough space so that it’s not too full.
