Top 10 Projects from 2021
When the end of the year comes, I love to look back at all the projects to see what the Top 10 were according to Color Me Thrifty readers.
So, I went into my google analytics to check which projects received the most visits in 2021, and this year, once again, the Top 10 were a mix of indoor and outdoor projects.
Creating these projects was so much fun, and I hope you see some of your favorites.
I used plain old cardstock paper to make these easy roses, and I repurposed something that might surprise you as the stems.
Repurposing things in unusual ways is one of my favorite things to do, and sometimes it’s the things you don’t even really notice that play a crucial part of a project.
This super easy flower was created from some repurposed thrift store finds, and looked great beside the yellow ligularia in my front garden.
This project came out of a challenge that I gave myself at a local thrift store to find 3 things during that shopping visit that I could make into a repurposed garden art flower.
I love to make wreaths all year round, but this heart wreath for Valentine’s Day was especially satisfying. It takes bit of time, but it’s super easy, and it’s well worth it.
This project was part of a quest of mine to make storage out of everyday things. Things that would normally end up in the garbage, or in my recycle bin.
I love crunchy peanut butter, and now I love repurposing the jars almost as much.
I’m not a beer drinker, so I give my hubby John a big assist with this project.
I saved them up for quite a while not knowing what I was going to do with them, and then one day I was playing around with them in my craft studio and… voila… beer cap flowers.
This project just shows that you really can make a tree out of so many repurposed things, like an expandable garden hose that sprang a couple of leaks.
I just couldn’t bring myself to throw it away because I loved the color and texture.
I love to make wind chimes, and this project was inspired by wooden spoons that I found at the dollar store.
With some spray paint and pretty beading, it really makes a statement… and it sounds like those bamboo chimes of old.
In my world there’s nothing that can transform most anything as quickly and easily as spray paint.
Throw some lace into the mix and the creative possibilities are pretty endless.
I am a girl who loves color, and I love mixing patterns in the colors that I love.
So, the fact that my scrapbook stairs makeover came so high in the Top 10 makes my year. I’m obviously not afraid of color, and I want to inspire others to use it more freely because it really can make your home smile.
And the number one project of 2021?
Even though this project was just posted in December it took off and somehow became the most visited of the entire year.
So I guess gnomes really are a thing! lol.
Even though I grew up with gnomes and elves around me during the Christmas season, this was my first DIY gnomes project ever.
You can repurpose used air freshener containers, or you can also use new containers and enjoy the scent while your enjoying your gnomes.
And that’s it! The most popular posts of 2021.
See you in 2022!
It would be greatly appreciated if you would pin this project to your favorite Pinterest board, and also share it with your friends.
Thanks so much for reading and until next time,
