Though the Olympics may make gold and silver seem like the most elusive colors, there is a recent craft trend of using copper to decorate one’s home. The color gives both a rustic and industrial look while giving a design aspect to any living space. Copper is large in the craft world right now, and for good reason. Don’t believe me? Check out the crafts below. I, for one, am excited to quickly jump on this band wagon.

Kids’ Crafts: Fun with Stamps

When it comes to stamping the possibilities truly are endless. Whether you’re making your own stamps using everyday materials, or using favorite store bought rubber stamps, stamping on paper or linen, you and your family can create memorable keepsakes, decorate clothing, make presents or just create for the sake of creating!

This first project is a fantastic tutorial for hand stamping linen. This would make a great teen or family craft. Once you make the stamps kids can do the stamping. Everyone can decorate their own scarves with a little help from older siblings and parents.

My nieces love bringing home dandelions, rocks, sticks, and other natural found objects from our nature walks. This is a great relaxing craft to do once we’re back at home cataloging our treasures.

Paint Chip Crafts

As a broke college student, I am a big fan of crafting on a budget. The trend of paint chip crafts is one that keeps the budget low and the results high. Though it’s not cool to clear out the whole paint sample section of your local hardware store, grabbing a few samples for crafting every once in a while is an acceptable practice. Especially when the results look this good. Check out some of my favorite crafts with this technique.

This paint chip bunting is perfect for any occasion. Though the rainbow colors are a great option, using event specific colors could also be a great option. I plan to make one for the “Football Sundays” I’m currently having to attend, because the best way to approach football is with crafts.

Kids’ Crafts: Zentangle

Zentangle has become such a popular and creative hobby and the more I try it the more I understand why! Zentangle is a style of drawing or doodling in which the repetition of a variety of patterns creates dynamic, unique results. Zentangle drawing can also be quite relaxing. This method requires both creativity and dedicated focus. This art form does require fairly advanced fine motor skills so these projects are geared mostly towards school aged children and teens.

This first project is very involved and is therefore age appropriate for older children and teens, but the project is so unique and the results so beautiful that I find this tutorial really inspiring.

3D Wall Art

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

I’m a big fan of filling up the space around me. I tend to hang up too many things on my wall, assuming all space is a good place to add decor. The newest craft trend in wall hangings is 3D wall art which adds both decoration and dimension to an otherwise plain space. These are a few favorites I’ve found.

This is another perfect excuse to upcycle an old t-shirt. Especially for a t-shirt that you love for the design that you may have grown out of or is too big. I love the look of the two embroidery hoops next to each other adding even more dimension and design to this piece.
