published on July 17, 2020

This is overcomplicated lifehacks vol 3 where we take a problem with a simple solution and operate on it like we're doing brain surgery nurse pass me the scalpel so you just scored a sweet set of knives but you don't have a suitable knife

Block to hold your new treasure typically you just stick them in your spoon drawer and let them get cozy or you might even take the box they came in and use that as a makeshift knife holder these solutions are one-dimensional and

Don't give your shiny set of blades of the home they deserve so try this instead get yourself a large glass fishbowl and about 10 pounds of long grain rice liberate the contents of the rice packages directly into the glass

Vessel of your choosing go ahead and fill it up until there's a little bit of room left at the top grab your knives and insert them directly into the rice using any configuration of your choosing when you're done proudly display your

Fashionable knife holder on your countertop because you've just achieved perfection there's absolutely nothing wrong with drinking wine from a mason jar assuming its hobo bathtub wine that you made yourself but when it comes to a

Fine bottle of fermented grapes you need a chalice a true testament to your elegance and refinement give this a shot get a small plastic bottle from your recycling bin the more elongated the classier grab a rotary tool or a sharp

Blade and carefully separate the top half of the bottle from its lower counterpart take your time with this and try and make a nice smooth cut to avoid any jagged edges it's not a bad idea to smooth it all out once it's removed you

Don't want your lips getting plastic slivers in them now go ahead and cut away the midsection until you're left with just the base or feet of the bottle this will serve as a nice stand but we're gonna need a little hot glue to

Make it all work screw the cap onto the bottle and slam a hearty glob a hot glue right in the center of the base while it's flipped upside down now carefully connect the capped end of the bottle to the glue and make sure it's all centered

Hold it in place until the glue takes hold and voila you've just created one of the finest wine glasses the world has ever seen go ahead and pour your choice of fine wine and enjoy table for one please if you're having a party then

You've got to have balloons but blown up countless amounts can really take your breath away the obvious solution is to create your own balloon pump using items found in your kitchen get yourself an empty 2-liter bottle and using a funnel

At about 4 tablespoons of baking soda directly to the inside now you're gonna need some vinegar 1 or 2 cups should do utilizing a water pump fill a glass with vinegar and transfer it to the balloon until you have a decent

Amount stored inside now pull open the end of the balloon and quickly snap it over the opening of the bottle having the vinegar in the balloon ensures we don't lose any pressure when you hold the balloon up it'll begin

Filling immediately allowing you to take a much-needed break while the chemical reaction does all the heavy lifting just repeat this process until all your balloons are filled with that sweet scent of vinegar so ya go to fill up

Your ice tray only to find that it's leaking like a wicker canoe this is why we can't have ice things here's a solution that's sure to get you that cool payoff you're looking for grab an egg carton and carefully remove all the

Eggs from their slots and storm in your broken ice tray now pull out some aluminum foil and begin to cut out 12 small squares one to fill each slot in the carton once you have your stack carefully place each cutout into the 12

Dimples of the egg box if you have a rounded tool like the back of this margarita muddler then use that to ensure full coverage you can use your hands as well just make sure there's no holes in the foil now head over to your

Sink fill up your improvised ice cube tray and toss it in your freezer for a couple hours when it's done you should have 12 lovely individually wrapped ice cubes just begging to serve you pop out the foil and unwrap your frozen delicacy

Until you have the amount you're looking for toss them in a cup and fill er up it's time to enjoy the fruits of your labor you found the perfect spot for that picture but it happens to be a corner

Don't let this deter you because we've got a solution get yourself a simple wooden frame it has glass I suggest removing that now we don't need it get out a ruler and figure out the midpoint of the frame this one's at 4 inches

Great now go grab your miter saw you have laying around and cut that rectangular beast in two while you're at it cut the matting and frame back in half as well you should now have two equal

Halves of the frame so it's time to set it all up grab your frame matting and place each half into its wooden counterpart now press the frame together and lay the photo that you want to use right over the top keeping it centered

The whole time alright now grab the backing board and put it on top of the photo when it's all in place push down on the prongs to hold everything snug and with a sharp blade slice right down the center so you can cut your photo in

To find the most choice corner in your home and put up some nails or frame brackets on each wall make sure that there is closely aligned as you can possibly get as it's extremely important that the two halves line up now just

Hang each side of your frame you may have to wiggle things around a bit until it lines up but you'll end up with an ingenious cornered photo frame that'll blow everyone's minds remember all work and no play makes Jack

A dull boy so have fun with your creations and be sure to subscribe thanks for watching and we'll see you next time
