For that last minute DIY gift, think about making this easy DIY rice bag. Use long grain rice – NOT INSTANT – sew 2 pieces of fabric together in a rectangle shape or any shape you want to make your rice bag, fill 2/3 full with the rice. Sew the rice bag cover exactly the same as your rice bag, just a little larger so the rice bag fits inside the cover, insert rice bag inside the cover, sew end of the rice bag cover shut. That’s it! Embellish as you wish (before you sew the cover together). I used the heart for Valentine’s Day! You can embellish as you see fit or not at all!
My First IKEA HACK – Malm table repurposed into a TV stand with shelves underneath. I found an old bookcase in the garage, trimmed it, painted it to match, and slid it under the Malm table to support the TV.
