Here are a couple of crafts I've done. The pens can is something that I did months ago but forgot to post it. As you can tell our pen holder was pretty ugly before(it was the holder for my silverware when I first came up to college). I really like how the one I made matches my magazine holder that I made previously. I made it by using an old formula can and some twine I got at DI. The basket I also got at DI for 50 cents and with the decorative balls many people use styrofoam balls but I didn't want to spend money on those because they are really expensive. So with the brilliant idea from my Mom I used newspaper and taped it together in the shape of a ball. Then I just used tissue paper to make the roses. I really like the outcome and love that I didn't spend barely anything to make these projects.
