Kids’ Crafts: Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Make mom feel extra special this year with one of these thoughtful, beautiful hand made gifts. For the older kids I’ve included some multi-step artistic projects which can be modified for younger children (or made with a little help from older siblings and dads 🙂

These shabby chic picture frames are inexpensive to make and the finished product is lovelier than any frames I’ve seen in stores. Kids can even choose their own favorite pictures of themselves for mom.

Geometric Design

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.

T-Shirt Yarn

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

I have too many t-shirts. My t-shirt drawer over flows with a multitude of colors and baggy fits that I never actually find time or the occasion to wear. My mom has constantly over the years asked me to toss some of these shirts out to create space for clothes that might actually see the light of day. Unfortunately for my dresser, I’m much to sentimental and practical to just toss out a t-shirt. Instead of wasting these memories and fabric I’ve been on the search for something to do and create with my old t-shirts. One craft trend that has emerged and has given my old t-shirts a new purpose and a new life is t-shirt yarn. There’s a number of options for this new medium of yarn and I’m excited by the possibilities I have found so far.

I have become surprised with all of the possibilities for these colorful additions. Whether it’s jewelry, home decor, or sprucing up old accessories and clothing, tassels are becoming a craft trend that I can full-heartedly get on board with.
