These are just the 10 tutorials that I had time to highlight right now, you’ll see many more on this and the other Tip Junkie sister sites as well. So a huge thank you for those who took the time to link up their fabulous tutorials!

Dresser Makeover

36.  Dresser Makeover ~ The transformation of this Hepplewhite dresser is absolutely amazing!  It’s hard to believe that it once was in a dark stain.  It was sanded and repainted in a bright and vibrant Swiss Coffee chalk paint.

Perfect Fried Chicken

112.  Perfect Fried Chicken ~ This recipe is guaranteed to deliver the most amazing fried chicken you have ever had!  It’s tender, juicy and bursting with flavor!  Wouldn’t these be perfect for Super Bowl Sunday?

Twirly Dance Skirt

133.  Twirly Dance Skirt ~ A perfect gift for your little twirler!  Imagine how fabulous these light sparkly layers of fabric will look when they spin in circles?!  It’s a simple skirt to sew from a version of the circle skirt.

"Be Mine" Mason Jar Lid Garland

151.  “Be Mine” Mason Jar Lid Garland ~ There are so many uses for mason jars and this one tops the charts!  I love that you can customize the paper and letters for any occasion.  It’s definitely unique and super simple to make. Round up your vintage mason jar lids because you are going to want to make this.

Organized Mini Office

187.  Organized Mini Office ~ Keeping a home organized is tough, this DIY project will help in that quest!  Ikea rails with pails for organizing stationary supplies, paper trays and a “to do” list are some of the great organizing tools.  If your space is organized and pretty you are more likely to work in it!

Ruffled Pillow Tutorial

203.  Ruffled Pillow Tutorial ~ You’d never know seeing the finished product that this pillow started as a drop cloth! With the help of this great tutorial you can create this ruffled pillow thats perfect for a sofa or even a bed! Easy and inexpensive to make yet looks fabulously stylish!

Cherry Cream Cheese Heart Pies

233.  Cherry Cream Cheese Heart Pies ~ A fresh baked batch of Cherry Cream Cheese Heart Pies makes the perfect homemade valentines gift.  Teachers will love them, kids will devour them, and all of the sweethearts in your life will feel special after you bake this easy to follow pie recipe.

Interchangeable Holiday Wreath

364.  Interchangeable Holiday Wreath ~ “Love is all you need” and man do I love this wreath!  It’s a simple styrofoam wreath form wrapped in lace that’s both darling and interchangeable.  All you have to do is swap out the decor elements.

Band Aid Valentine's Day Cards

371.  Band Aid Valentine’s Day Cards {free printable} ~ Band-aid’s for the love sick kid!  How cool is this Valentine?!  It’s a terrific alternative to passing out candy and we all know how much little children love putting them on.  {{wink}}  All you have to do is print them, attach a band-aid and let your little doctor sign their name.

DIY Curtain Rod

393.  DIY Curtain Rod ~ If you have extra long windows or just don’t have a lot of money to spend on a curtain rod, this tutorial will show you how to make your own for around $10.  This beautiful curtain rod was made from vintage drawer pulls, metallic electrical tube conduit, square dowel and curtain brackets.
