Have you realised how much trash you generate as just one individual? I never thought of trash or its consequences or the sheer size of it until very recently. In a bit to recycle and repurpose trash, I’ve been making small changes at home, hoping that someday it will all add up.
For starters, I’ve been collecting plastic boxes and glass bottles to repurpose them around the house. While reorganising my jewellery shelf, I put some of them to use. No, they aren’t ground breaking ideas, but I want to share them with you to get the wheels turning, to inspire you to repurpose.
For my bangles, I used a cider pint. It’s so handy and you can see all your bangles at one glance.

I can’t begin to tell you how easy this DIY really is. So I love beer/cider bottle caps. I used to collect a few, admire them for a while and trash them. Mainly because I didn’t know what to do with them. Lately, I’ve been trying to be conscious of the trash we create in our home and have been actively seeking ways to recycle and repurpose things.
The other day while reorganising my accessories I put an apple cider bottle and an egg carton to good use. It was a Little Creatures Pipsqueak Cider bottle that’s a beautiful brown. It also has the cutest little bottle cap and I couldn’t help but save one. I love the illustration on it.
I contemplated making a keychain, pendant or whatnot out of it. But I didn’t have any of the tools and buying them just to make one pendant seemed like a lot of work. So I thought of this easy DIY.
Also when I say it took me 1 minute to make it, I’m totally overexaggerating! It literally takes a few seconds if you have the things handy.

Does anyone really use salt and pepper shakers at home? Well, we don’t and I can’t remember the last time I felt the need to either. But they sometimes come in RIDICULOUSLY adorable shapes and you have to have them!
I love pandas and general panda-shaped paraphernalia. And years ago when I collaborated with Flipkart for this outdoor picnic for one, I couldn’t resist picking up these panda salt and pepper shakers. Look how cute they are! I’ve been using them as random decorative pieces (one of them broke recently) around the house.
But the other day I finally found a massive value pack of incense sticks at Little India, only to realise I didn’t have an incense stick holder when I got back home.

I started something new recently. For every birthday, anniversary and random celebratory day, I’ll DIY a gift for close family and friends.
No doubt, it shall be supplemented with a practical and useable store-bought gift. But I love the idea of spending the time to creating something with my hands for people who mean something to me.
And with Valentine’s day around the corner, I thought I’ll share a cute and romantic gift you could make for your Harry Potter loving partner.
I made this little artwork for my husband for his birthday earlier this month. Like every child of the late 80s-early 90s, he grew up reading books and watching movies about JK Rowling’s fascinating world of wizards. If you’re dating or married to a Potterhead, you know in your heart this little DIY will make their day.
