    A Tube Sock

    Cut the foot from a sock and slip the remaining portion over a vase. Chic shortcut: You can also snip off the sleeve of an old sweater and roll it onto a plain vase.

    Bright Paint

    Wrap utensils in painter's tape, leaving the bottom two inches of the handles exposed; dip handles in different shades, let dry, and remove tape. Be sure not to get paint on parts that touch food.

    Rulers

    Glue old rulers to the face of a wooden picture frame before setting on the shelf. For a more geometric look, cut rulers into different lengths before adhering.
