Have you ever wanted to do something that could change the world? Something where you could buy, sell, and create things you never knew you could? If you have, then this is the right page for you. It offers many projects that you could do, even if you’re a kid. Hey, I’m a kid, and I wanted to make a website so I did. I did what I wanted to do so that means you can too! So you can try these projects if you’d like, no ‘payment’ or ‘tip’ necessary,(unless you really want to) and best of all, you can have fun playing around this page!I will try to update this page every so often, and I hope you’ll like it. Thank you for looking here and be creative!



Spoon Lamp

First, as always prepare all tools and supplies to start your project of a Plastic Spoon Lamp. Using sharp cutting knife, cut out the big hole in the bottom of a plastic bottle.Before you start this step, prepare the glue gun (turn it on) and cut the handles of all your spoons. When the glue is hot, start gluing your spoon to the bottle as shown on the picture.Do it over and over until the whole bottle is covered with spoons.Now it is time to make a collar for the bottleneck to cover it. Glue the couple of spoons together the way it is shown on the picture, then stick it to the bottle so that it fully covers the neck. Put the cable through the bottle inside, install a lightbulb and now just find the right place to hang your Plastic Spoon Lamp.It looks gorgeous when it is dark and modern during the day.

Pebble Placemat

First you need to go to the beach and find a few pebbles, a bit of a lot of pebbles, that you could skip on the water, and bring them home.Use a hot glue gun to glue flat beach pebbles to circles of felt or wood. These placemats are perfect to use beneath teapots and warm serving bowls, and they look great at garden parties.

Fireflies In A Jar

Cut open a glow stick after you have lit it up, and shake the contents into a jar. Add diamond glitter. Seal the top with a lid. Shake. Keep in mind that these only last one to two nights. They are glow sticks after all. These are great for sleepovers and if you want a random art project to do.

Household Stool

If you have old magazines but don’t want to throw them out, this project is perfect for you! First get maybe around 30-40 old magazines, a pillow, two belts and a base. Attach the belts to the base, one on each side. Then pile all of the magazines on top, making sure that they are lined up and then place a pillow on top. Bring the belts up around all of the piled objects and strap them. Then you’ve got yourself a Household Stool to read or sit or do basically anything on.


Clothspin Mirror


Clip clothespins around a circular mirror to ensure even spacing before gluing them on. Place a can, plate or round object on the center of the mirror. This will keep the clothespins aligned evenly along the edge of the mirror. If youd like, before this step, you can decorate the clothspins to give your mirror a touch of your personality. Once you are happy with the placement, start hot-gluing the clothespins to the mirror. Open the clothespin and put a dab of hot glue onto the small flat section as shown. Open and close the clothespin a few times so the glue gets on both sides, and then attach it to the mirror. Repeat for each clothespin, and then remove the can. Hot-glue a picture-hanging hook to the back of the mirror. Then you have your mirror!

Flowery Stationary

Cut off the lettuce stem end with a sharp knife, and stand stem on a paper towel, cut-side down, for 5 minutes to dry. Press cut side onto a large stamp pad, then onto cards, stationery, and more, blotting on paper towel between presses. Vary stamp shapes with other vegetables, such as romaine lettuce stems or even brussels sprouts cut in half.



Recycled Bottle Broom

First get three bottles. Then take off the wrapping on all of them. After that, cut off the tops of two of them. Cut the sides into strips but leave room at the top so they don’t all separate. Then, put them all on top of each other, the one with the top on the bottom. Grab a stick that is about the width of the mouthpiece of a bottle, but a little bit smaller. Stick the stick into the opening on the top and glue it. Then you have your Recycled Bottle Broom!

Waterless Snow Globe

Grab an empty jar, a dollhouse miniature, some glue, and fake snow, and you’ll have a water-free snow globe decoration.First glue your dollhouse miniature and glue the bottom of it onto the lid of the bottle. Pour the salt (or fake snow) in and then screw the lid on tightly. You can decorate the outside if you want to. This “snowglobe” could make a nice, new decoration for your house

Silly Putty

Mix glue with the food coloring until the color is even throughout. Pour the liquid starch into the colored glue mixture. Stir and let the mixture sit for five minutes. Pull the putty out of the mixing bowl and set it on a paper towel. Knead the putty in your hands for five to ten minutes. Then you have your thinking/silly putty!

DIY Doily Pendant Light

First, blow up a ballon and tie it tight. Get a bunch of doilys and modge-podge them on to the ballon. Wait for the modge-podge to dry, then pop the ballon. You can put any sort of light in this ‘Doily Light’. Then, bring a string through the top of the light and tie it, making a string hanger. You can hang this from the celing. It looks very modern and cool 24/7.
