If you're a sucker for vintage blue opaline but don't have the patience to slowly curate a collection, consider the DIY route. Little Green Notebook blogger Jenny Komenda scooped up an assortment of miscellaneous glass dishes at Goodwill and covered them with oil-based enamel spray paint — in the perfect shade of bright blue, of course. Check out her spray-paint tutorial to give your jewelry collection a streamlined pop of color!
The New Inspiration Board
If the back of your door is already occupied by hat hooks or a mirror, there's another smart and equally stylish solution! Apply the same principle to a framed and fabric-lined board. Customize your own version, or take a shortcut by buying this cute jewelry organizer board ($64) from Etsy user ShopSuiteV!
Mirrors aren't the only useful things that can hang from the back of your closet door. Try mounting a skinny wooden dowel equipped with cup hooks on the back of your door for instant organization. For a breakdown of the process, visit Martha Stewart Living.
If you're trying to figure out what to fill someone's stocking with, why not save your money and make these stocking stuffers instead? And don't worry if you're not a crafter; many of these DIYs are easy and don't take up too much time.
We all have that token Christmas sweater party that works its way into our party circuits each year –– so we decided to DIY our own sweater for this festive occasion.

On Allison: Dolce Vita
While stencils have long ruled the roost as the best paint-driven alternative to wallpaper, we've discovered a much more efficient way to get the same results. After stumbling upon dated versions of patterned rollers in an antique shop, NotWallpaper founders and DIY designers Dan and Michelle decided it was time to bring the concept back.
Filled with patterns that range from feminine florals to faux bois, these rollers can transform your powder room, cabin, and anything in between. Heck, if you're feeling extra creative, you can even try layering the same pattern in two colors. Starting at $19 per roller, two will seem like a steal compared to a single roll of wallpaper – forget the entire room.
