  • A washi tape mirror

Any plain mirror will look more fabulous with this very simple trick. Decorate its frame with colorful, washi tapes, and you might choose a rainbow combination. Then, give this to your best friend, little sister, or another family member who might like this.

The first step you have to do is glue the mirror inside the frame using painter’s tape.
Paint the wooden frame from the gold mirror and let it dry. You may need several layers.
If you are following the same pattern, you can use this as a guide to help you draw the lines.
Continue gluing the strips of washi tape, overlapping each section as you do this.
When you glue the cut edges all you need to do is cut along the joined part of the frame to guide you with the x-acto knife and remove the access.
When you have the lines all spaced the way you want you can rotate and press all of them firmly and cut the mirror sides.
  • Embroidery headphones

The wear and tear on the wire cover tend to happen to headphones. Unless you purchase the high-quality version, a neat embroidery to cover the wire will help better. Plus, the headphones will look prettier with embroidery covers and make nice DIY gifts.

When you’re starting out, make sure to choose embroidery threads that have a close variation of colors, using four colors gives a more even transition from dark to light but 3 will work great too.
Place a small drop of glue on the base of the earbuds near the plug, then take the lightest or darkest colored embroidery floss and tie a knot just above the drop of glue.
Hold the loose end of your knot to the cord and start wrapping the thread evenly around the loose cord and thread. This will slip the thread securely.
If you’re feeling brave try making some pom poms. Whichever you choose, be sure to leave about an inch and a half of thread on top.
Lastly, you can tie the embroidery floss here and secure it with a little glue on the knot. Or you can quickly wrap it back into the tassels and tie the thread behind the tassel so it’s less visible.
  • A decorative signboard

You do not have to own a coffee shop or a restaurant for something like this. You can even hang this in your kitchen or give it for someone else’s kitchen. Paint the background and the fonts according to your taste. Choose a famous, inspiring and uplifting quote. It will be the first nice thing to look every morning in the kitchen.
