    5 Gorgeous 5-Minute DIYs You'll Actually Want To Try

    So cute, so easy.

    1. Tie a rainbow of tassels to your summer tote bag for a quick splash of color.

    You use small skeins of embroidery thread that are already looped around, so all it takes is a few strategic cuts and ties. Also, each single skein costs around 40 cents, so this will probably cost you less than $6 total. Here's exactly how to do it.

    2. Wash out an empty glass pickle jar and cover it in a pattern of polka dot stickers to make a modern vase.

    Just the right amount of homemade, and just the right amount of adorable. Read the tutorial here.

    3. Hot glue a stone, a toy, or tbh whatever you freaking want to a cork to make a wine stopper.

    Instant gift, too, when you're running late for a birthday party. Get all of the details here.

    4. Doodle on colorful napkins or tea towels with a bleach pen to make custom patterns.

    Here's how — and you could even get fancier with monograms or more complex patterns, although it might take more than 5 minutes.

    You can get a bleach pen here for $3.02, and sets of 6 brightly colored napkins for $10 here.

    5. Glue two bath mats together to make one big pineapple-shaped spot to dry your feet after a shower.

    You could also do other shapes using the same technique! Here's how.
