Diply 28 Jun 2018

Who else has an abundance of things at home that they want to make things out of? I have a ridiculous about of craft supplies that just need some love, you know?

In the past, I've made a bunch of recycled DIYs out of junk I have at home, but I haven't looked at all the supplies I've accumulated recently! So, here are some great examples of ways you can use the stuff you've already got!

1. This key chain totally makes this clutch pop!
