Sketch out your leaf design on one sheet and cut it, leaving it uncut in several places. Then, glue your cut-out to the other color piece of paper. Fold out sections of the leaf to give it a 3D effect. Glue the dowels at the top and bottom of the sheet, and use the string and push pins to hang your art.

3. Upgrade Your Rug with Tassels

Here’s an easy and quick idea to give your area rug some extra oomph. You can use an existing rug or purchase a chunky rug at the store. Then, you’ll trim out your rug using store-bought tassels(available at sewing or craft stores).

Or, to get even more DIY, make your own tassels like Earnest Home Co. Simply wrap some crochet yarn around a piece of cardboard or clipboard roughly 60 times. Then, use another piece of string knotted around the center on the front and back to cinch the wrap.

Snip the tassel at each end to remove it from the board, then use yarn to knot around the top and create the “head.” Finally, attach your newly created tassel to your rug using the ends of the top knot. Repeat at regular intervals on your rug with as many tassels as you want.

4. Make a Rustic Vase

You can repurpose any container into this rustic-inspired vase using plain rope. Charleston Crafted uses a mason jar, hot glue, and rope to create the perfect addition to a farmhouse-style design. It also works well with nautical styles or a coastal theme. You can take the same idea and create other looks using colored rope, string, twine, or yarn.

5. Turn a Shirt Into a Pillow

Don’t toss out that old button-up shirt! Instead, grab a pillow form from the craft store or an old, worn-out pillow from home, and make a trendy throw pillow. The SpruceCrafts shows you how in their step-by-step tutorial. They use a 14-inch pillow form and a men’s large shirt.
