DIY Photo Collage
This photo collage is perfect for your room if you have a basic plain wall and you’ve been wanting to do something with it. This collage is really easy to make. 

You’ll need: 

- Photos
- Masking tape
- Double sided tape

 1. All you have to do is pick some of your favorite photos and just print them out. 

2. Then you want to go ahead and lay all of your pictures on the floor in shape of a heart just so you can get an idea of which picture you want to go where. 

3. Put a little bit of masking tape on each picture and hang each of them on the wall to map the collage out. 

4. Once you have them all up take a double sided tape and stick them on the wall permanently and remove the masking tape. This is a great way to display your favorite photos.

DIY succulent holder
You’ll need:
- Looking glass spray paint
- Glass bowl
- Spray bottle

1. Start off by heading over to the sink. 

2. Take your spray bottle and mix in a concoction of half water and half vinegar, close it up and give it a good shake.
