Mason jars are a staple in every home, so grab a few that are a bit tatty, swirl some paint around, inside them, then leave to dry and et voila! You have pretty vases and plant pot alternatives! This might be our favorite project to try and it's so simple!

2. Brilliant bike storage.

Urgh, how annoying are bikes, in terms of storage? This brilliant shelf, crafted from a pallet, is inspired and can be hung on any wall. We think it would be great for the hallway, so your bike is always in easy reach.

3. Wall planters.

Why waste lots of money on expensive wall planters, when you can simply hammer some hooks into your walls, then twist wire around your pots, SECURELY, and hang them up? They look rustic and stylish and won't cost the earth!

4. Alternative art!

You can't frame every picture your little ones produce for you, but you can display them, on rotation, if you try this brilliant technique out! Coat hangers, with trouser clips, make for perfect display items and you could have a whole gallery wall! So even your children can get creative in decorating the home. 

5. Vertical garden displays.

You can probably already tell, but all you'll need to recreate this gorgeous garden addition is a couple of old pallets, some nails and a little determination! You could paint it up as well, as a finishing touch.

6. Funky lighting.

You don't need to be a master electrician to be able to wire up a string of lights! Grab a hot glue gun, a string of bulbs and some old crockery and get creative! Here's a quick tip for you though: when it comes to drilling your crockery, make a cross in masking tape and drill though the center, slowly!

7. Handsome hanging space.

What could actually be simpler than creating a stylish hanging bar with a large twig, some rugged rope and a wall niche? Utterly perfect, easy and quick and a lot of fun, your friends and family will have you making them some as well!

8. Stack the crates.

For a feature wall with a difference, you can't go wrong with stacked wooden crates! They offer a rustic aesthetic, can be great for storage and naturally tesselate together, so all you need to do is add a few screws and wall fixings.

9. Pretty garlands.
