25 Most Pinned DIYs

The internet is a-buzz these days with DIYs, tutorials and clever ideas on how to make things.  From crafts to preserving wood, the information is endless and inspiring!  I recently was going through my pins over on Pinterest and I was reminded of the incredible amount of inspiration there is online and have put together a list of some of the most pinned (or more popular) DIYs on my boards out there.  Things like porch brackets that become magazine stands, a how-to on how to make a beautiful paper orchid, origami bows for gift wrapping and a quilt you can make in as little as one day! Click below to see!
