DIY Didn't I Think of This Sooner

Don't you just love the "Ah-ha" moment!  Sometimes it's using an everyday item that the rest of the world has been using for years, or sometimes it is using something in a new and different way.  Either way, it's usually something that was right in front of you all along.  So when Wayfair invited me to join in on their "DIY Didin't I Think of This Sooner?" sponsored campaign, I knew that I could come up with a list of those moments...so here are just a few.

Mason Jar Cake plate

3.  Creating a cake plate from a mason jar.

Hopefully these ideas will inspire you to look at things in a different way, so that you too will have some new "Ah-ha" moments.
