Posted by Meghan Quinones

It's Monday, which means it's time to be inspired for the week! We pulled 3 projects for you to add to your must-make project list. This week you can find an upcycled home decor project, a birthday banner so easy your kids could help make it, and a special tote fit for a teacher!

Just a reminder, if you want to see '3 Things To Make This Week' live in action, make sure you check us out on Periscope every Monday morning at 9:3am CST. You get an up close look at all three of the projects and can ask questions about each!

Let's dive in!

If you have managed to collect an insane amount of clear vases throughout the years, you are going to love this project. You can completely transform your vase with some paper and Mod Podge! Just think of all the customization you could add to your plain clear vases. You can finally give your clear vase collection a makeover and actually turn them into functional vases. If you do not need any more vases in your home, you could transform a vase, add fresh flowers from the grocery store, and give it to a friend as a housewarming gift. So many possibilities! See the full tutorial here.

Party decorating has never been easier! Laura shows you how to easily create your own party banner with a little help from the We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board. She went with a 'Happy Birthday' banner, however, you could customize your banner to any event you may be hosting. With the We R Banner Punch Board, you can make your phrase as long (or as short) as you want!

It's that time of year when kids collect all of their new supplies and head back to school. Claudia made this adorable tote bag that is the perfect back-to-school gift for your child's teacher. The size is perfect for hauling papers and books to and from school, while letting all of the other teacher's know who is #1. ;) Paint and painter's tape give this tote its oh, so cute stripes!
