Today I’m loving … this advent calendar made from toilet paper rolls and cardboard. And you don’t need to wrap the calendar gifts, you simply lock them inside the rolls. Find out how to make this calendar on Morning Creativity.

diy: making furniture from pallets

Used shipping pallets are great to use for a design DIY project. They are inexpensive, rustic looking and using reclaimed wood/products is evironmental friendly. You can paint them (or not) and pile them up with some lovely cushions to create a sofa. But there is a lot more you can do. Here are some of the best pallet projects that I found online.
