If you have a day off this Memorial Day weekend, or if you are just looking for something to do, why not take on a project? To inspire you, I’ve put together five ideas that are (relatively) simple, (relatively) easy, and (relatively) cheap, and should be doable during the next few days (hopefully).
A simple Zippo trick that takes just minutes to master, but is sure to impress.
This small flashlight is recharged when you shake it, and is a great way to learn about simple circuits.
With an old picture frame, some curtains, sun emulsion, a garden hose, and ink, you can screen print out your very own fashion in just hours. Never wear the same shirt again!
This one requires Photoshop and Flash, but if you’ve got those programs, custom backgrounds are just a vector away.
Take apart an inexpensive clock and turn it into wall art with a subtly changing moire effect that would make any MoMA proud.
Now stop wasting the day, and get going!
