Kids Crafts: Jewelry Making

This week I got to hang out with my school aged niece who was on spring break and she asked me if we could make jewelry. So, I set out to find some fun, easy to follow tutorials for making jewelry we would both be proud to wear! I found some great tutorials for making jewelry with a variety of materials including fabric, paper, washi tape and popsicle/craft sticks! With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I thought it might be a good time for  crafting presents for the mom’s in our lives also.

 

These fabric bead necklaces are so much fun to make, and to wear! My niece made one for her mom, and I made one for my sister, who is about to have her second daughter sometime this week!

DIY Linen Lined Jewely Box

I bought this jewelry box but found it a bit too precious to use.  So I lined the bottom with some linen and have enjoyed using the jewelry box ever since!

Upcycled Vintage Jewelry

I’ve got a little satin bag full of the sparkly costume jewelry that both my grandmothers used to wear to parties and I love to peek at their elegance, but I very rarely use them. They are a little too fancy for everyday wear for me and I don’t often have a chance to go somewhere where they would be fitting. So I’ve been on the lookout for some projects to use them with. I love their glamour, they deserve to be used and worn and these projects are just the ticket!

Well of course! A sparkly Christmas tree! I love the idea of making a Holiday display that sparkles and shines with the glint of vintage jewelry.

Ok, a bridal bouquet isn’t really everyday, but what an amazing way to carry memories of those who are no longer around for the wedding with you down the aisle? Such a beautiful bouquet!

Trying out Martha Stewart's New Jewelry Line

I recently had the chance to try out the latest from Martha Stewart Crafts – her new jewelry line. I don’t think I’ve ever seen jewelry making supplies quite like these. My two favorites were the enamel and the jewelry glaze. They each add color to your charms and other things to create a piece that is uniquely yours.

Wine Bottle Jewelry Holder

By General Crafts Contributor Melissa, from the blog MeloMomma

I just repainted my bathroom and my old jewelry holder no longer matches. After the expense of the paint and other materials, the last thing I wanted to do was buy a jewelry holder. So I made one!
