Instead of posting links to Making Do Ideas on this blog now (I'll just post my own projects here though they are few and far between now), I'm now posting them on my Pinterest Board named Making Do Stuff.

Links to Other's Ideas are moving to my Pinterest Board

Follow Me on Pinterest

With the advent of Pinterest, I believe that little slice of social media is much more useful for the quick links I've been putting up when I see someone put up a project that fits the Making Do with the Not so New theme.

I'm now posting them on my Pinterest Board named Making Do Stuff.

You do not have to have a Pinterest account to see it. So you could bookmark it and take a look every now and then.

Of course, having a Pinterest account means you could follow all of my boards and find other like minded "pinners" to follow as well.

I will of course, continue posting here on projects that are my own original ideas though they are few and far between at this time in my life.

Simple Puppet Theater

And you thought I was gone....nope, but two kiddos and all the thrifty things I do makes it rather difficult to come up with more thrifty projects, especially when you add in extra jobs.....BUT

My girl wanted a puppet show - and I'm not adding another thing to have to walk around in my house. So I decided to make one that I could easily make and store.

You'll need:
big pieces of scrap fabric -- my daughter chose from my stash hence it may not be the most pleasant combo
3 curtain tension rods.

I hope most frugal people can make simple curtains. (Fold over the top of the fabric roughly two inches and sew along the edge leaving a sleeve for the rods to go through), so make your fabric into curtains and slide them onto the rods, then set them up in a doorway or hallway.

Viola! Puppet Theater.
