Embroidered screen door
Welcome your guests with a twist. All you need is a needle, thread, and basic cross-stitching skills. Choose a word, phrase, or short quote, and sew it onto your screen door. Check out this example.
Mason jar menagerie
Start your own menagerie by dressing up mason jars with paint and toy animals. Just hot-glue the toys on top and paint it over, lid included, with the color of your choice. Use other decor if you wish -- plastic fruit or flowers, miniature dolls, action figures of your favorite superheroes. You can also opt for a seasonal theme, like using Christmas ornaments instead of toys. Check out the procedure here.
