Somewhat Quirky: The "H" Project - More Pinterest Inspiration
Love this as a family collection. Use a picture of each person doing their own unique pose. Cut it out (resize on copy machine if needed.) Use this as your template to cut out a sillhouette on black paper. Attach sillhouette to white paper. Frame in black frame. Something the kids will always treasure and your guests will talk about.
Candle Stick Apothecary Jars. You will need 3 candlesticks. These came in a set at Ross for $10. They were primed, then spray painted green. The jars were old salsa jars soaked in bleach solution and labels peeled off. The lids were spray painted to match the candlesticks. Lastly, the jars were glued onto the candlesticks with gorilla glue.
Poster paper cut in circles, spraypainted, layered into a fishscale pattern on fiberboard, trimmed out, and hung in a dining room. Great (and cheap) graphic statement!

Glowing Outdoor Orbs: You need opaque glass shades, & christmas lights: Just stick the glass shades anywhere you want & stuff them full of mini lights. Attach an extension cord if you need to & hide it under your garden dirt or mulch. I have my lights on a timer so they come on every night at dusk.
