Much like the donut has become just as cool as the cupcake, copper is quickly creeping up to be the new gold in town… and I like it. These ten crazy, and I say crazy because of how insanely genius some of them are, copper DIY’s will have you on the decor forefront in no time! Just don’t be mad if the guys in Home Depot happen to look at you funny as you strategically pick out your favorite pieces of copper, all of the cool kids are doing it too.

A little insider tip: Did you know you can polish copper with ketchup? It’s true! If the smell of that much ketchup doesn’t make you nauseous, you can save yourself a lot of money cleaning up your DIY projects with it instead.
