Bicycle Inner Tube Rubber Band

Don’t throw away your used inner tubes! My friend Frank told me about this great bicycle inner tube rubber band hack. Just cut them into rubber bands (or as some folks round these parts call them -elastics). They are really strong and you can cut them into different widths depending on what you’re using them for.

DIY Phone Charging Station

diy free phone charging station

This DIY phone charging station is made out of a 27.3 oz water bottle, so it’s essentially free! All you need is a water bottle, scissors, marker and measuring tape or ruler. Measure approximately 3″ or more from bottom of bottle `(my phone is approximately 3″ x 5″, if yours is larger you should size accordingly and possibly use a larger bottle). At that measurement draw a half-circle around bottle. At the end of each side of that line draw a straight line approximately 4″ toward top of bottle, then join the lines together at the top. Cut along the marker lines. Next, using your plug as a guide, outline the plug in the center of the back towards the top (make sure your phone fits once you hang it on the plug). Finally paint your charging station as you like, or don’t, it’s entirely up to you!

Chicken Wire Hat Organizer How to, Easy DIY

DIY Chicken Wire Hat Organizer

The joys of chicken wire! This often overlooked raw material is much more versatile than just caging your hens in it. In fact, there is at least one museum in the United States entirely designated to the history of chicken wire. Our chicken wire hat organizer is also great for hanging jewelry and pretty much anything else you can think of. I suggest using a large old picture frame.

The example shown is 18 1/2″ x 22 1/2.” Obviously the larger the frame the more hats you can fit. Be sure to wear protective gloves when working with the chicken wire. Cut the wire to up to 1/2″ larger than the edge of inside the frame, secure it with nails on the back. I also used felt over the edges of wire and nail heads to protect the wall from scratches. I like to use old clothes pins to attach our trucker caps to the wire.

Utility Sink Rack

Reclaim some of the space over the utility sink in the laundry room. I have seen inserts for kitchen sinks, but couldn’t find anything for utility sinks. I discovered that an ordinary metal standing rack fit almost perfectly upside down in the sink; all I had to do was bend the legs back 180° so they wouldn’t stick up and could also grab the sides. The bending was done by hand. Wire shelving can also work with a little adjustment. The results have been great, this utility sink rack is very strong and easy to keep clean.
