Who does not want their home to have a lovely scent?

This method is even perfect if you have anyone in your family allergic to perfumes or strong scents because it is made out of natural ingredients.

You can use an orange peel, just cut the orange in half first, then remove the pulp and fill the peel with salt.

This will bring out all the nice zesty scent of the orange, you can even stick a candle in the salt and use it as a center piece for a rustic dinner.

You can do the same with flowers as well. Just layer the petals with non Iodized salt in a small jar.

The salt will bring out their natural scent and help freshen your entire room.

It is better to keep a lid on the jar when you are not around to make the scent last even longer.

Use different colors and sizes of tape, you can get as creative as you want with the frames, from simple rectangles to whatever complicated arrangement you may like.

Make some beautiful string art

You do not need to mess with hammers and cutting wood and all that.

You can make it easier for yourself and use cork board instead, it is easy to work with and cheap.

Print and cut the word or the shape you want to make and nail all around it on the cork board, after you finish tracing all the letters or the sides of the shape remove the paper.

After that, start stringing. Tie the string firmly around the first nail and go on weaving back and forth. If you do not like how a certain part looks you can simply unwind it and redo it.

Turn your Instagram photos into coasters

You can use any other photos for this DIY project if you want, but instagram photos are already in a square shape, plus, they print out nicely.

You may vamp up your old coasters with this trick, buy cheap ones and work with them, or if you really want to go all the way you can use square ceramic tiles.

You can even print your photos using a color printer  for minimum hassle.

After printing your photos, stick them on the coasters then cover them with a piece of clear plastic paper cut to the appropriate size and glow the edges.

For a cleaner finish you can either paint the whole thing with some sort of glue finish and let it dry, or if that is too much work for you can decorate the edges with washi tape.
