Even in art, where it is accepted that there is a certain element of cost involved we all feel virtuous and good when we are able to create something good out of something that does not have much value. There is a certain joy to be had from do-it-yourself kind of projects. That is why when people come across projects like do-it-yourself candle centerpieces made easy, they get very excited.
When it comes to craft ideas that you can do at home by yourself using daily everyday things, it need not be very complicated.
