DIY for the home

These days we see so many exciting new books, magazines, apps, pinterest on the "Do It YourSelf."  How fun is it to save money in this economy, but better than that, do it yourself. I have learned so many fun tricks from my co-worker who has a magazine,  facebook and a  group I am on called, Pinching Pennies.                              

Here is a fun idea to do yourself if you like to host/hostess parties at your home. I love to entertain and have two-100 guests attend.   Check out this DIY.

Step 1:  Go out and buy Mason Jars at a garage sale, thrift  or grocery store. (can you tell I could not wait to open this case)?
Step 2: You will need to purchase glow in the dark paint and a paint brush at your local craft store.

Step Three: Paint quarter size dots all over the inside of the jar and let it sit under lights for 1 day or put outside in the sun light.

Step Four: Put it out on your walk, in your back yard, anywhere you'd like decorative light. You can hang them up as a string of lights too. 

Fun, Easy & Do It YourSelf


  1. Or, you can set them outside in the sunlight for an hour.

    I'm loving all this DIY stuff and happy to learn all the things that our Grandmothers knew....
