Easy Watercolor Garland

This craft is a quick DIY that can easily involve kids of any age. I wanted to try it out simply because I love experimenting with watercolors and this is a perfect way to have some fun just making brush strokes and in the end you have a fun piece of decor for a party or a kids room.

Ice Cream Pint Koozie

By Sewing Contributor Courteney from the blog Crafting with Court.

Ice Cream Koozie

I love eating ice cream straight from the pint while I binge watch my favorite TV shows.  The problem?  My hand always gets so cold!  In the past, I’ve used a washcloth to keep my hand from touching the freezing cardboard, but it doesn’t fit very well and almost always ends up with ice cream on it.  The solution?  I made my own Ice Cream Pint Koozie.  It fits all my pints of ice cream perfectly, is colorful, and keeps my hand nice and comfortable while I’m enjoying my favorite pint!

Kids’ Crafts: Back to School

It’s getting to be that time of year again. Even very young children can feel the hectic excitement in the air and anticipate the approaching change to their schedules. It can be a scary experience, especially for kids just starting school, but it can also be exciting and fun. As you’re navigating back to school shopping for school supplies and clothes you can also help your kids prepare for the new school year with crafts, activities and imaginative play!

If you haven’t made a time capsule with the family yet, the end of summer and start of a new school year is a great time to do so. Encourage the kids to choose trinkets from the summer, photos and notes about yourself (favorite colors, best friends, new friends, goals for the school year, favorite joke, etc.) These will be so much fun to open next year (or at the time that you choose).

Simple Butterflies Card Using the Faux Tile Technique

Adding texture in some way to a card always makes it pop.  A great way to do this is to create a background with different elements such as embossing and inking.  This great faux tile look is perfect for that “pop” on a card and it’s easy to do even though it looks difficult.

Geometric Design

By Craft Trends Contributor, Lacey. Check out our Craft Trends board on Pinterest!

I am a big fan of minimalist design and straight lines. I cannot say if this is a nature or nurture as recently this type of decoration is everywhere. This fact can be seen in the recent craft trend of geometric design. Whether it’s furniture, art, or accessories, a minimalist design dependent mostly on straight lines and shapes can be seen far and wide. I am a fan of this and here are some projects I found that could help me share my enthusiasm.
