Need some music in the house? Try making your own crafty speaker with a toilet paper roll and two paper cups. Trace the radius of the roll on the side of the two cups then cut it out to make two holes. Once it's firmly attached, carve out a niche that matches the size of your phone or music player on top. If your device is snug enough, hit play, and have some fun. You can do this project with a larger paper roll and paper cups for better sound quality.

3. Desk Organizer
