(Better yet, post these photos on your social media, share what you learned and create a little positive reinforcement for yourself that you went outside and got yourself "off the couch")
1) Close-pins: Have a few wooden close pins lying around? Find something to decorate them with..paint..stickers..glitter..markers... then take a hot glue gun and add them to an old canvas print.. a wooden sign (You know that one you compulsively bought at Ross).. add close pins to magnets on the fridge for notes and so much more! Use whatever glue source you have and are comfortable using. These velcro strips come in handy for crafting and easy take down projects too!
