Junk Drawer DIYs: make these crafts from things you already have around your home

I don’t know about you guys, but I am itching for a good project. With the current cost of lumber, I have been struggling to find ways to scratch my creative itch.

I’ve got a few scrap wood projects and pallet projects in mind, but until then, I’m making things from what I already have. I’d love to share some of those things with you.

1. Desk storage boxes

I have two daughters and a love for shoes…so you better believe I have a collection of shoeboxes. Get some paint, some metal bookplates and some glue…and you have yourself some new desk storage boxes.

2. Farmhouse candlesticks

If you have some candlesticks, some plant pot saucers, white chalk paint and a drill, you can make these candlesticks.

3. White mason jar succulent planter

If you’re like me, you have an assortment of mason jars lying around. Take a small one, paint it white and pop a succulent in it.

4. Picture frame tray

All you need for this one is some drawer pulls, a drill, a pretty piece of paper and some chalk paint.

5. Scrap wood shutters

Do you have some scrap wood lying around? Just use it to create some faux shutters!! You will need wood, drawer pulls and hinges, and paint or stain.

I hope these five easy and cheap DIYs inspire you! Maybe you can scratch your creative itches, too.
