Christmas gift idea- Buy a rough surfaced tile and mod podge pretty scrapbook paper on it. Then mod podge picture over that. Let dry and wrap with a pretty bow. Easy and cheap! You can also include a small stand to set the tile on.
I know this would be an insane project but I think that a giant crocheted rag rug could look pretty perfect in the livingroom. would fit in with the wood beams/tile/adobe western/mountain feel of the house.
A tutorial for a plastic bag basket. Braiding, so no crocheting or knitting skills needed :) This would also work for making a nice shopping bag of all those single use grocery bags - just add handles. (Remember no bio degradable bags!
