This would be way better than keeping grandma's old watch in the jewelry box! Reuse vintage watches with old family photos.
25 Awesome Craft Ideas (recycle old watch bands ... my dad did this for my grandma with a picture of my grandpa and she wears it everyday).
Upcycled vintage watches! This would be pretty for some of my Grandma's old collection of broken watches.
A neat thing to do with a vintage watch that no longer works. @suzibh I have one of grandmas old watches I need a picture of her.
What a fun way to recycle vintage watches! Great gift idea. #DIY. Idea for a preteen or teen girls gift. If you have pretty old watch bands, put a cool family photo copied in a reduced size to fit where the clock part of the watch once was. Then it becomes a cool bracelet.
Repurpose vintage watches as jewelry memory photo bracelet: would be great heirloom gift idea. Endless possibilities: redo grandparents watch with their photo or add kids photo & gift back to grandma, etc.
Love this idea! Up cycle vintage watches - what a great idea! Could use grandma's old watches that don't work.

Petite Michelle Louise upcycle silver tray for Christmas chalkboard decor
Kitchen decor. Chalkboard paint on a silver platter. Or flat black paint with white paint for something more permanent. If you have stamps for the design, verbiage, you're golden. I would not make this a holiday theme as I like it for all year long. Magnetic?
Chalkboard paint + silver tray>> I wonder if this would work with work Dollar store cheapies?

(Pb) Garden: DIY Crafts on Pinterest | @djohnisee ~ PIC: The seeds from maple trees form the dragonflies wings. For each, place 4 maple seeds on your work surface with their ends meeting. Add a drop of tacky glue to each end, then rest a 4-inch twig on top. Let the glue dry. (or hot glue gun, if an adult helps.) Turn over dragonfly, add a line of glitter glue to the edge of each wing. Attach two small glass bead eyes with glue. May also use acrylic paints. ~ Idea by Shanti Nordholt

Back when I was experimenting with how to make candles, I got discouraged with the pillar candle molds that you can buy at the local craft store. Whenever I sealed the opening for the wick (at the bottom of the mold) so when I poured the melted wax, it would eventually leak and make a big mess. So I wound up find some cute tea cups at various places like Marshalls, Ross or TJ Maxx and making container candles with them. Since I took the Eco-Friendly Candlemaking Class at The Nova Studio my interest has been renewed to make candles. I found these instructions on how to make the tea cup container candles project from Martha Stewart that I wanted to share. These would be cute gift ideas Here is cute gift idea for Mother's Day or really any day of celebration (Bridal Showers, Bay Showers etc.). Tools and Materials Nested pans Partially burned candles ( or soy candle wax from your local craft store) Candy or candle thermometer Tongs New wicking Teacups Wick sustainers Wooden skewers Scent and Colorant (optional) Teacup Lights How-To 1. In a small pan set over a larger pan of simmering water, melt down old candles; clip the thermometer to the upper pot, and keep temperature at about 185 degrees. Remove old wicks with tongs. 2. Cut a piece of wicking to the cup's height plus 2 inches. Clamp one end to a wick sustainer; tie the other end around a skewer. Dip wicking and sustainer into melted wax to coat them. Remove and stick sustainer to cup's bottom. 3. Pour in the wax, stopping 1/2 inch below the cup's rim. Allow wax to set, about 1 hour. The candle will harden with a well in the center. To even it out, use another skewer to prick a circle of holes about 1/16 inch deep around the wick. Pour in melted wax until surface is 1/4 inch below rim. Cut wick.

Magnetic Mousetrap Clips Tutorial So I was perusing the dollar store the other day and ran across the mouse traps. After staring at them a bit, I threw a pack into my cart and was met by my husband’s questioning stare. “Crafts”, I said. He shrugged and moved on. Yep, my husband has gotten used to my weird way of thinking. Most folks look at these little wooden traps of springing metal and think “dead mouse”. I, on the other hand, think “cool looking refrigerator clip!”

10 Common Thrift Store Finds
And Ways to Use Them for DIY Projects
1.Dishes: You can find mismatched dishes in a range of colors and patterns at any thrift shop. Use them to build a collection, hang a wall of plates, or make them into mirrors.
2.Artwork: If you're thinking of hanging a wall of clustered artwork, thrift shops are a great place to build a cheap, out-of-the-ordinary collection.
3.Shelves and Secretaries: Storage pieces are always useful around the house. Clean up shelves with paint or wallpaper. Although old-fashioned, secretaries are really useful pieces that can easily transform into a home office, bar, or linen closet.
4.Sweaters and Blankets: Have these dry-cleaned, and then use them to add some coziness to your home by reupholstering a chair seat or covering a footstool.
5.Trunks, Suitcases, and File Cabinets: Industrial trunks and storage pieces or vintage suitcases are easy to find at flea markets and thrift shops. Clean them up and use them as occasional tables.
6.Dining Chairs: Whether you're looking for a whole set or a single side chair, dining chairs are always waiting to be scooped up at second-hand shops. If your chair needs a little love, try painting it, reupholstering a seat, or staining it.
7.Dining Tables: Simple thrift store tables can be used for kitchens, dining rooms, or repurposed as a desk. If the table is scuffed or needs some DIY love, try restyling it with paint, fabric, or even just a tablecloth.
8.Lamps: Sometimes all a lamp needs is a new shade and a good cleaning to make it brand new. If you find a broken lamp at a thrift store, you can always try rewiring it.
9.Rocking Chairs: We can't tell you how many Thonet rocking chairs we've found at thrift shops around the $30 mark, usually in excellent condition. Rockers are great for a child's room, a porch, or even a corner that needs a big piece. If your chair is a little dull, try painting it.
10.Fabric: If you've got basic sewing skills, thrift stores are the perfect place to look for fabric scraps to use for pillows, napkins, tablecloths, curtains, and any other project that could use a stash of mismatched prints. Just make sure to wash your fabrics before using them.

We often hear people complain that they're no good at thrift store shopping—they have an aversion to dirt, no patience, or just bad luck. The truth is that anyone can be a good thrifter if they keep an open mind. It's as simple as recognizing when an object needs a good cleaning, a coat of paint, or even just a new context. Here are a few common items to keep an eye out for the next time you're at the thrift store.
