Terra Cotta Pot Ashtrays

Today I put together two adorable ashtrays to use outside. I am not a smoker, but we have guests often in our backyard and I wanted somewhere for them to put their ashes and butts. For this, I simply turned over two Terra Cotta pots. How easy is that?

They already have a hole in the bottom and you can just drop the ash into the hole and then clean them out. I love these!

Duct Tape Rose Hair Bow

My daughter made an adorable duct tape rose hair bow today that I had to share with you. It is so cute! She made the rose out of duct tape and then used hot glue to put it on a clippy. Check it out below!

Duct Tape Dresser

My youngest daughter had decided to cover her dresser in stickers at one point. They were half torn and peeling off and it looked awful!

My wonderful 9-year-old decided to fix it up with some duct tape. Check it out!

Duct Tape Umbrella

Since Duct Tape is waterproof, it is the perfect thing to use to update an old umbrella. We had one that was Disney Princess, but neither of my girls are into that at all. My 9 year old daughter updated it with some duct tape and now it looks great!

Check it out!

Keep Your Area Rugs in One Spot

I have found the secret to keeping your area rugs from moving. Someone posted this on Facebook and I had to try it. You take either caulking or silicone and put it on the back of your area rugs in lines. They will not move!

I tried this one two different ones. One is on my wood floor and the other is on tile. Neither one has moved at all since I did it! I would highly recommend doing this at your house.This has saved me a lot of headache because I was always fixing mine.

Check it out below. You should try this one at your house.

Duct Tape Backpack

My daughter is only 9 years old, but she is really good at making stuff with duct tape. This is a simple backpack that she made herself. The only thing she used was duct tape and Velcro! Here are the steps.

Step One: Make two sheets with twenty strips of duct tape each.
Step Two: Take a textbook to see how wide you need to make the bottom. Tape the bottom onto the sheets.
Step Three: Tape the sides of the two sheets together.
Step Four: Use sixteen strips of duct tape to make the flap and then tape it to the top of the bag.
Step Five: Add a strap.
Step Six: Feel free to add a design or pockets to your backpack!
