Button Lined Mail Tray

Grab your button collection and create a cool tray to store your mail or office papers!

CreateForLess recently moved our corporate office, and while moving is never fun, decorating a new space is. Right away, I noticed that there was no place for our incoming & outgoing mail and I knew a Mail Box Tray would need to be crafted soon. I love how this Button Lined Mail Tray turned out, and I hope that you enjoy it too.

Easy Fabric Hexagon Coasters

Fabric Coaster tutorial with a free template!

My husband is a card carrying member of the coaster police, which is fine… if you don’t only have stone coasters, a glass coffee table… and a 1 year old. Over the past few weeks there has been a lot of me moving the coasters out of her reach, and the C.P. (Coaster Police) putting them back only to have to stop the 1 year old from banging them on the coffee table. Something had to change, the easy solution fabric coasters!

These coasters are so quick and easy, a whole set could probably be made from start to finish in about an hour.

Wine Cork Bath Mat

Bath Mat 1

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.

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.

These wind chimes give a beachy and boho vibe to any location and are a great alternative to purchasing them for a high price tag. The small copper bells will create noise without being obnoxious and getting to choose the fabric will give it a personal touch.

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.
