  1. Jute rope placemats

This is so simple but stylish- you only need rope & glue- I’m a little envious I didn’t think of it first 😉 You could use the essence of the tutorial and make trivets to protect your tabletop from hot pots too 🙂 Full tutorial and credit to

2. Bling napkin holders

I normally prefer more durable DIYs but these really don’t look anything like the toilet rolls they are made of and are pretty close to the real thing so I couldn’t miss it in this round-up 🙂 Personally, I’d probably varnish the toilet roll before sticking on the scrapbooking rhinestones so that they are a bit harder and can withstand more wear and tear 🙂 Full tutorial and credit to http://ourpinterestingfamily.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/pottery-barn-knock-off-napkin-rings.html

3. Mercury glass containers

Shabby chic decor is everywhere these days and the price is anything but shabby. It seems silly to pay so much for new stuff that is made to look old, don’t you think? So why not DIY it yourself? You can use it to store trinkets or place tea lights inside! Full tutorial and credit to http://boxwoodavenue.com/blog/diy-mercury-glass
