Posted by Yasha Wallin

But just in case you don't have a stockpile of these to dive into, here's a round up of awesome DIY craft ideas that will make your staycation feel ten times more productive than drinking margaritas on the beach for a week (though admittedly, I wouldn't complain if that were my fate).
