My favourite DIYs are the kind where everyday objects are used in inventive ways to create something new. Not only are these projects super clever, they're also a great incentive to repurpose items that would otherwise gather dust in my store room, which is great for my hoarding tendencies!
Click through to see some of the DIYs I've been bookmarking to make on a rainy day - I can't wait to try them out and put my old junk to good use.
