1.Repurpose cupcake cases.
Imagine the scene… it’s been a long day. You are tired but you have returned home and the sun is still shining. Gripped with excitement you decide to indulge in a drink on the patio. Total bliss. So you pour your favourite drink into your favourite glass and take a seat in your deckchair. Within seconds you regret your decision because floating in your drink are the struggling, sodden bodies of several small flies with their little wings helplessly flitting against the last ice cube you had in the freezer. Even after you’ve fished them out, that drink has lost all appeal. Easy solution; pop a cup cake case over the top of your glass and pierce with a straw for easy sipping. Voila!
2. Use a cup as a speaker.
Your quiet beach meet-up has evolved into quite the soiree but there’s one thing missing…. CHOONS.
Full volume on your phone doesn’t really cut the mustard but the solution is wonderfully simple. Just drop your phone into a cup and marvel at the vessel’s amplifying qualities… just be sure to empty the cup of liquid first as that would have the opposite result.
3. Make a bottle sprinkler.
We know that you probably have a similar, more effective version of this in your shed already; one that you bought from a proper shop. But this is better for several reasons. Just imagine the fun you’ll have during construction and the sense of pride you’ll feel as you watch the kids jump through the mediocre fountain you’ve made out of a bottle and some sticky tape. Priceless memories.
4. Make a garden throne.
Your rotting garden bench not that tempting this summer? Well how about you put together one of these bad boys? You might call it an empty paddling pool with a few cushions and blankets, but we call it an ‘inflatable orb oasis’. The best thing is it’s portable! Imagine turning up at the beach with one of these?? You ‘d be the envy of all your friends.
