DIY For Dummies (Just 2 Ingredients!) – 8th Edition

Welcome to the 8th edition of my annual DIY for Dummies list!  Every summer during my vacation week, I like to take a quick look back at the previous year and find some of the easiest ideas I’ve shared.  These are the recipes that can be made by just combining a couple things and you’re done!

Quick and simple ideas are always my favorites. Time is a precious commodity and if we can make homemade items that enrich our lives and solve our problems – AND do it without much muss or fuss and without wasting our time – those are the ideas that often stick and that we find ourselves making again and again.  I always remind myself that “Homemade Doesn’t Have To Be Complicated” and I like to put this annual list together to help reinforce that idea too.

You can check out my previous DIY for Dummies lists too for even more 2 ingredient inspiration.  Enjoy!
