The Living Category is a wild, vast frontier where we can learn so many things. This year taught us how to pick locks, count on our fingers, make candles out of compost, and how to pack booze in new and subversive ways. We learned how to braid, how to smelt, how to sew adorable stuffed animals, and how to grow a whole mess of plants. And even if you lack a green thumb, you can still make realistic roses out of duct tape for your sweetheart!
Here are the top 20 most viewed Instructables in living from 2012. I hope they entertain and inspire you to try something new in 2013!
