Are you stuck in the house? Is it too hot to go outside? Maybe you have cabin fever because it's too cold. Whatever the reason, if you're feeling bored and need a quick easy project idea that can generally be done in less than 2 hours, I have you covered.
Some friends and I have collected our favorite quick and easy 100 projects to do when you're in a rut, or stuck inside due to the weather. You will find home decor projects, holiday ideas and more to spur your creative side.
I'll be sharing a few of my favorites, as well as easy projects I love from my friends. Because our collection is so huge, this won't be an easy task.
Let's start with Five Favorites from yours truly
In no particular order, here are Five Projects. Of course I have tons more I could highlight, so to see my entire collection of easy ideas, click that link.

How to Line a Vintage Suitcase
Old suitcases are readily available at thrift stores. Generally, they are okay on the outside, but the inside is either smelly, torn, or missing. I'll show you step by step how to replace that lining with new fabric.
Pencil Transfer Method
This simple transfer technique can be done on any piece of furniture, or even a framed project. You don't need fancy machines to do a transfer.
Easiest iPad Stand Ever
Oh my gosh, it does NOT get any easier than this easiest iPad stand ever. You can pick up the items at the dollar store, or a thrift store like I did. You will be amazed at how easy this project is.

Remember, these projects are perfect when you're stuck indoors when it's too hot, too cold, or any other reason when you need a Craft Break! Sometimes, we just need to get crafty for a mental health break, right?
Wood Slices | Easy Projects
While we're talking about Christmas, how about these Wood Slices used for Ornaments or Gift Tags? I think it's such a great idea!
If you're reading this in the Summer (when it's too hot) think Christmas in July. July really is the perfect time to make Christmas projects before all the hustle and bustle of the holidays start!
