Easter is coming in just a few weeks, so now’s the time to get crafty if you want to give your kids homemade Easter gifts this year.

Did your washing machine bite the dust? Don’t get sad! Before you give the appliance delivery guys your old machine to recycle, remove the drum and turn it into an awesome homemade firepit! I love this idea, because we don’t often thing of salvaging pieces of dead appliances for our crafty adventures. Even better? This is a shockingly simple project. Sarah from House & Fig made her washing machine drum firepit in just one hour, and it only cost $10! If you already have a washing machine drum handy, this project is totally free!
Don’t these cats look cozy in their little hammocks? You can sew these up for the cats in your life or make them to donate to your local animal rescue! Squidoo user (Squidooer?) Pam Irie opted for the latter, and she shares her detailed tutorial in case you want to do the same thing! I love how these cat hammocks give your kitty an elevated place to sleep. I don’t know about your cats, but mine prefer being up high, so they can survey their kingdom.
Kristi at Addicted 2 Decorating shared a tutorial for making a magnetic chalkboard spice rack, and frankly it’s genius. The spices go in small glass jars with magnets on the lids, so you can pull them down and stash them easily. The chalkboard means you can label what’s what and change things up as you replace the spices in your stash. Love it!
