All you need for this a single piece of wood! You may want to stain it to give it a nice finish, but otherwise, it may be the easiest DIY out there.

This fun project can be done in minutes! All you need a blank vase and some temporary tattoos. And the best part? If you don’t like the way it turns out or you get sick of it, you can remove that tattoo with nail polish remover and do it again.

DIY Drawer Dividers

DIY Book Ends
There are many different ways you could go with this one. Creative a unique bookend by mounting a favorite figurine on a wooden slab. Cut up some wooden slab into triangles and paint them fun colors. Use recycled records or favorite CD cases, mount them on a metal or wooden stand to create a meaningful bookend full of memories.
