To make thumb tack word art, start with a piece of foam board that is at least 1/4 inch thick. Print out a word in your desired size and font. Letters that are at least 3 inches tall work best. Tape the printout to the foam board and, using a utility knife, very carefully trace the letters. Make sure to cut all the way through the foam board. Then, press thumb tacks into the letters to decorate them. For a uniform look, start the rows of thumbtacks from the outside and work your way toward the center of the letters.

To make Sharpie mugs, use Sharpie markers to create designs on white oven-safe mugs, then bake the mugs at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately one hour.

To make a one-of-a-kind jeweled phone case, start with a case that is either clear or one solid color. Gather some rhinestones or other costume jewelry. Disassemble old, unused jewelry for the stones, or purchase faux gems at a craft store. Use jewelry glue to affix the stones to the back a phone case. Allow the glued stones to dry before using the case.
