2. Dotted mug

You don't have to color inside the lines. You don't have to stencil anything yourself. You just make dots around a sticker — we can handle that, right?! Get the full directions here.


3. Painted Mason jars

If you can paint your fingernails with your left hand, you can do this. Just paint the glass Mason jar and then sand it down to make the lettering stand out. Get the full directions here.

6. Colorful firepit

Spray paint some bricks and stack them lego-style. Of course make sure you have gravel, sand, or some other inflammable base — you want to spruce up your backyard, not burn it down. Get the full instructions here.


10. Colorful cup lights

Buy some cute (probably not Dora The Explorer themed) bathroom cups, poke a hole in the bottom, and insert your Christmas lights. This creates a colorful glow. However, this one might be a potential fire hazard so turn em' off when you leave the room. Full directions here.

12. Gold and solid colored canvas

"Ooh I love that piece, who's it by?"

"Oh... you wouldn't know them."

Impress your friends for a next-to-nothing price. All you need is a solid base color and bright gold or silver acrylic paint. Get the directions here.


13. Nail polish keys

The days of fumbling looking for the right key are over. All you need is a bright nail polish, your key, and 5 minutes of patience so they can dry. Get more directions here.

16. Wooden coat rack

Who knew and old piece of wood and some branches could look so cool? This piece has a rustic feel and a margin for error (you can kind of just nail the branches in wherever). Check it out here.

17. Makeshift sprinkler

Why go out and buy a sprinkler when you have an empty 2-liter bottle in the house? This super easy hack will make you look like the most innovative person on the block. Get the directions here.

For this DIY all you have to do is place one vase inside the other, add colored water, a candle, and you'll have the perfect centerpiece. See the full instructions here.

21. Lightbulb vase

All you have to do is rinse out an old glass light bulb, fill it with water, and add flowers. To keep it upright simply place it inside a napkin holder or something similar. Get the full directions here.

23. Watercolor Mirrors

Adding color stain to your mirrors can add some fun to your place. As an added bonus, every time you look at yourself in the mirror you'll remember that you conquered a DIY project. See the full instructions here.
