I have recently gotten into DIYing, re-purposing and reusing items. For example, I turned an old t shirt into a halter, turned a picture frame into a message board, and made cloth wipes. But I wanted to know more ideas, especially ones that do not involving a sewing machine. Thanks!

What materials do you have available and/or what items do you need or want to make. You can DIY just about anything so it's a big question :-)

As far as not sewing, a staple gun and hot glue gun can be very useful tools for lots of different projects.

You can do a no sew t-shirt tote bag. Lots of variations out there, but here's one:

I have a lot of old clothes that are either too big or small. And many baby clothes that are too small now. So I would like to repurpose and reuse those somehow.

I found this really cute idea to spray the tip of the shoe neon. Maybe not for winter but it's such a cute idea for spring or summer!  http://greenweddingshoes.com/diy-neon-toe-shoes/
