To save you the time, here are some creative ideas about DIY projects you can start implementing today.
Plastic Bottle Insect Traps
This is a very simple and effective idea. Use a large plastic bottle as an insect trap by cutting the top part and turning it upside down to fit into the now large hole. That way you create a funnel for insects to step into your trap. The bait, for the most part, can be beer and sugar, as both of those substances attract insects. This trap is especially effective if you live in an area with dangerous insects such as hornets.
Old suitcases with hard sides can be great tables if you add some legs to them. They will probably not be the largest of tables, yet you can store some things inside and still have enough room for a tea party or a card game. It is the best of both worlds if you have an old, charming suitcase lying around. For that extra flare, you can also paint it to match your room’s color scheme.
Wallet Made out of Cassette Tapes
For those who were living in the 90s, cassette tapes were a thing of both pleasure and pain. Getting the tape mixed up and in a knot usually meant the end of a cassette, your favorite album. The plastic cassette covers can still be reused to make wallets. Adding a zipper and some cloth here and there could make a very simple wallet for your basic necessities like ID cards and credit cards. That way, you keep the memory of your lost album with you.
Jar Candle Holders
Using old glass jars as candle holders is an amazing idea. But, if you want the jars to make an even more interesting atmosphere, you can wrap them in yarn partly and paint them. Removing the yarn once the paint dries should leave interesting patterns on the jar, where the light will shine through. That ought to make the atmosphere in your room more interesting and likewise, find a new purpose for old jars.
Glass Bottle Vases
Glass bottles, like wine bottles, can easily become vases. All you need to do is paint them in a way which suits your environment. You might not be a great painter, but with some practice and patience, you can make the perfect decorative vase to hold your flowers and make your room prettier.

You will likely have some stuff that was sitting for a while and with these ideas, you might just come up with some of your own as to give that stuff a new look and purpose.
