Anyone who likes to reuse and recycle would appreciate this gift!  Create a garbage can made of garbage found on craftster. This would look great in a dorm room and will put all those magazines that have been piling up in your bathroom to good use!

A two in one reuse and cooking project.

Fill an old glass jar with cupcakes and frosting...I think YES!

I'm always trying to think of easy to make gifts. These Mason Jar Cupcakes are perfect gifts for co-workers, a sick friend, or just to say thanks.

Step 2: Repurposed Furniture

This industrial looking ottoman is made from a washing machine drum.  It is small and would fit perfectly in the corner of a living room or bedroom.  Check out garage sales or junkyards for unused washing machines.

Here is some more sleek furniture make out of milk crates.  So many ways to arrange these crates ranging from light fixtures to bar stools to tables.  There are hundreds of ways to use these boxes if you think outside the box!

Step 3: Random Crafting

This, however, is an experiment using dry ice to create beautiful clouds of smoke while filling your home with sweet scents.
