I adore making gifts for my loved ones. I actually started making gifts in May because I was so excited. I actually just finished weaving in the ends of my last knit gift and just need to put together a few smaller gifts myself. Even if you’re not like me, and haven’t even thought about what you will be giving this year, you still have plenty of time to make your own gifts. Check out some of my favorite ideas.
One of my favorite things about giving homemade gifts is the opportunity to really tailor the gift to the recipient. Things like monograms or even just the use of a person’s favorite color are so special.
By this time next week, we’ll be eating our Thankgsiving leftovers. Can you believe it’s right around the corner? You still have a few more days to make this year’s Thanksgiving really special with gorgeous decor and special touches for your kitchen table. Check out these DIYs to make your Thanksgiving table memorable.
Keep the kids table happy with a fall themed paper mache box filled with crayons. It’s a great way to make the kids feel included in the festivities with their own decorations, and keep them entertained.
I’m an avid knitter, but I know it’s not for everyone. I have some friends I’ve taught to knit who haven’t even cast off their first scarf. Here are some great alternatives to knitting that give you the look of a knitted project without the needles!
Mosaics are a great craft for any age. There are so many mediums to create them with and so many opportunities to let your imagination go wild. I’m loving the huge variety of mosaic crafts that I’ve seen pop up recently. They make these beautiful pieces of art seem possible for crafters of all skill levels even though mosaics are something I’ve always been a little afraid of. Here are some of my favorites.
This project simply uses Mod Podge and pretty scrapbook paper to create a lovely mosaic look. I think this is a great place to start for beginners because you have a chance to create your own shapes to fit with your designs. I love that Michelle even created a cracked mosaic look out of the florals already on the scrapbook paper. Gorgeous!
Today is Halloween. It being on a Saturday means Halloween parties are a plenty and the kids might be able to stay up a bit later to trade candy. To make your door and house stand apart from the rest, you don’t need to hand out the best candy. Instead, check out these Halloween wreaths that can accentuate your love for Halloween and let your guest and neighbors know where the best Halloween party is taking place.
This owl wreath is not only adorable, it’s perfect for trick-or-treaters arriving at your door. It’s both funny and creative and it won’t scare any younger children. This is the perfect craft to let your wreath also take on a new character and costume.
Halloween is quickly coming upon us. Though I’m not sure how the holiday is already here, I’m very excited for the decorations and discount candy. With it being one week away and Halloween parties being planned, I thought I would share some of my favorite Halloween crafts for decor to wow any guest, young or old.
This fun craft is sure to impress your guest. Putting a light in the center of the bowl would make an eerie glow to the craft and it doesn’t take much time or many materials to make them. It’s easy enough that you could even get the kids involved.
At my school, the acorn is our second mascot. Though this may sound weird, due to the old oaks we have and a perpetual fear of being hit by a fallen acorn when walking to class, the acorn has become a symbol for our school. Needless to say, I am fond of the acorn, which is why the recent craft trend of acorns brings a smile to my face. Here are just some of the acorn crafts I have seen and wanted to make for myself.
These cute candles won’t burn for long, but would make for a great decoration at any fall party you might be hosting. You can also make a ton with not much wax, so replacing them throughout the night would be easy.
