You are never too old for fun cute jewelry, especially when it looks good enough to eat. Have a blast and brighten your craft day up by making your very own rainbow cake jewelry. This would be a great activity for an older teen sleep over.
As it has annually for the past 21 years of my life, Father’s Day 2016 has snuck up on me. In my defense, I didn’t really care much about holidays for the first 5 or 6 years. However, now I don’t have an excuse, and with these awesome DIY gifts, neither do you! Disclaimer: I sought out all of these crafts with my own dad in mind, because I think he’s pretty cool, so they all have a little Papa Hill essence to them!
Is it a rule that all dads have about a million pairs of reading glasses? Or is that just mine? Papa Hill buys multi packs or readers about once every month or two because he either loses them or ruins them. Problem solved with this nifty craft that keeps your glasses free from scratches and easy to find!
Father’s day is just around the corner. This year instead of going with the universally accepted and oh so very common Father’s Day gift, a tie, I decided I would make my dad something to organize all those ties he has received in the past.
A few weeks ago, my mom called me with a wedding present idea for a wine loving cousin that is getting married this fall…a Wine Cork Bath Mat. She asked for help making it, and as any good daughter would do, I took over and decided to make it for her. This bath mat is a little time consuming, I mean you do have to drink a lot of wine to get the corks, but so much fun.
PS. You can buy used wine corks online so you don’t really have to drink all that wine, or just use new cork stoppers.
PPS. If you know said cousin getting married, please don’t tell.
We love making wreaths for all the seasons. You can get pretty creative when making wreaths with kids and use a variety of household and crafts materials to make some unique seasonal decor. Here are some of my favorites.
Dip Dyed Craft Sticks create a beautiful sunburst effect which is fun to make and guaranteed to brighten any door this season. This would also work well for making a sunburst mirror for the kids’ room.
Whether you’re experiencing the unseasonably warm weather we’ve been having here in Portland or the strangely chilly weather in the NE these bright tie dye crafts are sure to be a crowd pleaser. Traditional tie dye can be kind of messy so I’d recommend a warm day in the backyard for those projects, but the Sharpie tie dye experiments and the tie dye clay can definitely be indoor activities as well. I hope you enjoy these Tie Dye favorites!
Clay is fun and easy to work with for kids and adults. The bright mix of colors is fun to create and use to decorate clay pots and coasters. These would also make great gifts for teachers and grandparents!
