Sewing needles are essential for crafters but they can easily get misplaced. Tired of pricking my finger when another needle fell out of the paper package I came up with a yarn needle case to store my needles safely. Using yarn, plastic canvas and fabric this case will keep your needles in place in a fashionable way.
My parents are taking a big cruise this summer to celebrate their 40th anniversary. I wanted to make my mom a gift that she could use on the cruise, but wouldn’t take up much precious luggage space. This valet tray is perfect because it will keep all her things from falling off the dresser or night stand, but will lay flat in her suitcase for travel. If your mom travels, this is the perfect DIY gift for her, too!
My favorite crafts are Recycled/Repurposed Crafts, so I thought I’d put together a few ideas to inspire your crafting this Earth Day. Whether you’re looking to create recycled Spring decor, upcycle old clothing, or repurpose antiques into new furniture I hope these crafts will inspire you to create sustainably, and craft on any budget!
There are so many ways to recycle Tin Cans. You can decorate them and use them to organize your desk or craft table, you can hang them on the wall in your mudroom or entry way to hold items you don’t want to forget on your way out (keys, chap stick, gloves), or you could fill them with flowers like these! The possibilities really are endless.
My husband tells me I tend to shut doors loudly, or at least that is what he claims when I get up before him. I don’t believe I shut them any louder than he does, but just in case, I wanted to make sure that our baby won’t wake up as soon as someone shuts the nursery door, or really any door upstairs. These cute DIY Door Latch Covers are thin enough that the door still shuts, but the stop the door latch from clicking. These sleep savers are quick and easy to put together.
Many Easter celebrations are centered around a family gathering and meal. Family gatherings can be both joyous and stressful. Everyone knows if Uncle Chuck and Aunt Evelyn sit next to each other at dinner, they will be arguing politics for the rest of the day. This situation can be easily and cutely avoided using place cards. Place cards also add a little bit of elegance to your Easter dinner. So, follow this tutorial to enjoy a beautiful and peaceful Easter dinner.
Easter is just around the corner, and I think even dogs should look dapper for the occasion. I wanted to dress my dog up, without putting him in a full on Easter Bunny costume (although I did consider it.) The Shirt Collar Dog Collar is an easy way to make your dog look fancy without too much to do.
