Turn off the TV and tune into your own imagination. Enjoy each moment, allowing your creativity to unfold in the kitchen, craft space or in nature.

Recycle your old cardboard tubes to create these budget friendly homes for the resident fairies. All you need is a bit of paint and some patterned paper. The windows in these fairy houses make fantastic night lights (using fake tea lights of course).

Allow the paint to dry, then glue on some pretty decorations - you could use glitter and sparkles too.
