DIY modern perforated christmas trees: uses simple paper mache cones found at the craft store, drill a few holes (sand them a bit as needed) and spray paint white. Set a LED tealight (battery operated) under the cone for the lit up effect!
An elephant iPod pillow. Oh, I do appreciate the beauty and simplicity of this idea. The general design might make a good cook book stand or even a picture holder or plate stand. Will have to experiment with this!
