It might sound crazy, but these items will help make your home beautiful than you can possibly imagine.
And, examples of such items are tires, hubcaps, wooden pallet, crutches, bottles e.t.c.
However, you should be aware that this cannot be applied to every possible item within the box of your possession; because, there are some items with hidden potentials.
So, with this in mind, we have decided to reveal to you how you can make something beautiful and amazing from objects that can be characterized as useless.

1. Make a mark on the smooth middle portion of the bottle and cut to give an even edge approx 7.5 to 8 cm (3") above where you want the fluted rim.
2. With the aid of measurement, make straight and evenly spaced cuts all the way around the bottle. Cut the segments in half and then cut each of those in half to make even thin strips.
3. With carefulness, you should now press and fold all the strips outward to make a level edge all the way around.
4. Press the bottle upside down on a flat surface to ensure an even edge.
5. Now, proceed by weaving the tip of a strip over the next one and under the next two. Fold and crease it so that the tip is at the place shown here by the arrow.
6. Then, fold and crease the next one the same way, weave this one over two and under one.
7. Fold the third strip and weave the same as the first one
8. Lastly, you should continue around in this pattern until the last three and tuck each one under the next until woven in completely.
Also, for our second DIY, we're sticking still with bottles. Beer bottles to be precise. And we will be showing you how you can transform your beer bottles into beautiful bud vases.

1. Begin with washing the bottles. And in cases where your bottles have labels on them, then you should soak them in warm water until it’s easy to peel the label off.
2. Set up a mini workstation. And in doing this, you should know that it is crucial to work outside when working with spray paint.
3. Spray your first bottle. But if your bottle is printed, you may need two coats. And that is potentially all you need to do.
4. In other to take it to the next level, grab your painter’s tape and start making patterns.
5. You can also create a different pattern by using puff paint to create dotted designs that pop out from the bottle. Let dry for about 30 minutes before spray painting.
Your beer bottle bud vase is ready.
