When entertaining guests, it’s important to create an atmosphere that makes them feel at home. How do you do that besides cooking and cleaning? One way is to incorporate subtle accents in a room, such as candles.

Go a step further and craft some homemade candleholders that are certain to create a warm, hospitable room.

You will need four small vases/cups, a pack of rubber bands, spray paint and small candles.

After gathering your supplies, simply follow this three-step process:

  1. Wrap the rubber bands around the cups.
  2. Spray paint the cups.
  3. Remove the rubber bands.

As a result, the candlelight will peak through the cup creating a warm scene.

Dusting is a dirty, daunting task. With the changing seasons, spring-cleaning is inevitable.

If you are going to clean the house, why not do a thorough job? High places, such as ceiling fans and the top of bookshelves, can be impossible to dust without help from an NBA player like Kevin Durant.

Luckily, even without the reach of an NBA star, you can still reach for the broom. All you need is a broom, a roll of paper towels and a rubber band.

Wrap a paper towel around your broom. Then bind it with a rubber band.

Enjoy having the reach of a professional basketball player as you dust this season! Just don’t be disappointed if you don’t receive any calls from the NBA.

Quick! Make a deal with your friends/family that you will treat them to a home cooked meal as long as they do the dishes. Who is going to turn down a meal prepared just for them?

As you prepare the food in the kitchen, wrap a rubber band around the sink sprayer. Then after dinner, just wait for it.

You may witness a scene like this one:

Everyone has a habit that is unique to him or her. It can be something little like biting your nails or scratching your nose. For Robert Barone from the TV sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, it was touching his food to his chin before each bite.

Some habits, however, can be harmful to your health or self-image and need to be stopped. Many people try to cut bad habits, such as cursing, smoking or nail biting, but they can be difficult to break. Cutting a bad habit requires effort and can take time. However, the crafty use of a rubber band can help speed up the process.

Try wrapping a rubber band around your wrist, as pictured below.

Next time you catch yourself cursing, biting your nails or partaking in the bad habit you’re trying to kick, lift the rubber band and make it snap against your wrist. Soon you will find yourself not wanting to experience that sting and will cease your bad habit.

Have you ever overcome a bad habit? If so, how did you do it? Tell us in the comments section below!
