Since February, I’ve been the DIY contributing writer over at The Happy Housewife. Since then, I’ve shared a few quick and easy projects–each a little different, but with the right supplies, all can be done for under $5!! How nice is that?! They’d make great gifts or just quick summer projects! 
Click any of the titles or pictures for full details and tutorials.
Perfect for summer–such an easy way to spruce up your Old Navy (or any other) flip flops!
You’d be hard-pressed to find a DIY or craft project easier than this one!  I think I may need to make one for 4th of July! 🙂
There are so many different things you could do with a little wire holder like this one! Other embellishments, colors, different shaped wires, etc.

  1. Frugal crafts run in my blood (of course) but I love these, especially the recipe/photo holder. HOW CUTE!

  2. I love all three of these projects, but since I AM the flip flop queen, I am partial to that project. Very cute, thank you for sharing!
