About Morgan

Hi there! I'm Morgan, the summer intern at Create For Less. I've tried my hand at scrapbooking, sewing, and knitting. After a bit of trial and error, I've finally decided that up-cycling and repurposing is my favorite type of crafting. When I'm not at the office or my other job at a tavern, I like to travel, take photos, and hang in the great outdoors.

Paper Frame Magnets

Paper Frame Magnets

I love preserving memories in photographs, it’s one of my favorite things to do. However, I’ve kind of gotten to a point where I just have TOO MANY bulky picture frames. Solution? Smaller picture frames! I had so much fun making these that I actually ended up with a ridiculous amount. But hey, what can ya do?

Kids’ Crafts: DIY Puppets

Is it just me or do sock puppets always look like they’re judging you? I didn’t realize this until I was scouring Pinterest for this post and started to feel really self conscious. Worry not, this post includes the least-judgey looking characters for you and your kiddos.

Sock Puppets

It must be the googly eyes, because this sock puppet looks exactly like the sweet lil’ pupper I hope to come home to every day in my future. Not even a little judgey. Go check out our tutorial on Think Crafts!

Kids’ Crafts: Home Decor

As a parent you have to appreciate your children’s artwork. I know this because I recently found approximately 10-15 framed portraits of “mom” and “dad”  by yours truly that look like deformed potatoes. My parents actually went through the effort to frame these. That is true love, I tell ya. However, some kids crafts can actually turn out pretty cool, even if they haven’t discovered their artistic ability yet. Check ’em out!

“Where I’ve Been” Map

DIY a push pin map to keep track of your travels!

I’ve been lucky enough to have seen quite a few countries at such a young age. I’m currently on a mission to see 30 countries before I reach age 30. Because of all these adventures on top of being in college, my bank account is a little tight. So, when I was looking online for one of those fancy push pin maps that show off where you’ve been, I was super bummed to see how expensive they were. Then I realized that I could very easily just make my own!

Kids’ Crafts: Apples for Teacher

I grew up with a teacher for a mother, so naturally I got to eavesdrop on her and her teacher friends. Rumor had it that teachers like getting chocolate and other unhealthy goodies over apples, but these cute crafts are far better than a healthy snack – probably still not as good as chocolate – and will add a bit of character to any classroom!

Puffy Paint Window Clings

I adore these little window clings! They would be a perfect back to school gift for your kiddos teacher, or if you’re a teacher of kiddos, a super fun beginning of the year project!

Back to School in DIY Style

It’s about that time when the air gets a little crisper, and your kiddos get a little busier. That’s right, back to school! I’m headed off to my senior year of college in a couple of days, so this blog post was extra fun for me to do. (Cute organizational ideas anybody??) I hope you find some inspiration here to send your kiddos – or yourself – back to school in DIY style!
