Porcelain rice bowls are as interesting as the plain white rice that it is destined to hold for the rest of its existence. Luckily, a simple DIY that requires only these bowls, opaque ceramic paint, paint brush, and a gold sharpie. Once baked, these are dishwasher proof, so you can use them as dipping bowls or for snacks as well as for storage and decoration. They also make great personal gifts because who doesn’t want to receive something handmade from your friends.

Let’s be honest, tissue boxes are a little dull.  But it doesn’t have to! Don’t look at an ugly and brown tissue box on your desk for the next few weeks, an alternative exists! Did we mention that it sparkles? Bust out the pink (or whatever color) spray paint and rhinestones and go crazy!

Marbleize anything with this DIY! It is too simple. The three things required are a project to marbleize (tiles, S&P shakers, mug, whatever…), nail polish (don’t want to waste your favorite shade? visit your local dollar store for a buck or two each!), and water (in a large tub is best). A clear sealer is optional (if you’re worried about wear and tear).

These three DIY craft projects are simple, affordable, and look great! You don’t always have to break the bank to pursue a fun and engaging craft project. Take a look around your home, in your old drawers, or in your storage rooms. There’s a project waiting to get started somewhere. A Pinterest pin is waiting to be born. Whether it be old and boring bowls, cups, or tissue boxes, your creativity and imagination is the limit to what you can do and accomplish.
