If you do any kind of crafts, or have lots of smaller things you need to keep separated, you need organizers. There are all kinds of organizers that you can buy, but if you are like me, you find they are never the right size or shape or have the right number of compartments. It is so much better to make your own and it's easy to do. Let me show you how!
So many people are home from work these days and they are not used to having so much free time. Boredom is rampant! If you are looking for some fun things to do that don't require going out, I have some great suggestions!
Today I have a simple, easy to make recipe for chalk paint. Why spend the higher price to buy chaulk paint for your country project? Make your own! It is not complicated or expensive!
I really love Gingerbread Ornaments on my tree. Not only are they cute, but they smell great! If you want to make some for your tree, here is the simple, 4 ingredient recipe. You don't even have to bake them, just roll them out, cut and let dry! It's a fun family activity that is inexpensive and kids love doing it!
I have a cat that is really feisty. He is an 18 month old ginger cat and he is as devilish as he is lovable! He loves to play, but having all his claws (four wheen drive, as my husband calls it) he is very hard on his toys. He can rip a catnip mouse to bits in record time. He also has shredded his little cat house, along with several scratching posts. After a while it started to get a little expensive, replacing toys and playthings for the little furball!
If you are like me, you have a lot of left over tin cans. They have a lot of uses, pencil holders, craft organizers, I have even cut out the top and bottom and screwed it to the barn wall to hold brooms and rakes! However, today I am going to share a much more fun use for tin cans. Check out these cute cans!
Fall is my favorite time of the year for crafts. I know its not really fall yet, but I can wish, can't I? I can also get an early start in making some end of the summer and autumn projects. Nature is just full of things that are great to use for crafts like pine cones, branches, leaves, pussy willows and my personal favorite: corn husks.
and Fun Things To Do With Them
Wooden gift tags are very inexpensive and there are many fun crafts you can make with them. They are enjoyable to decorate and can be used for so much more than just tagging gifts. I bought a bag of them to use on my jar gifts as tags because I found that cardboard tags are easily damaged or lost. I had quite a few left, so my crafting mind went into overdrive!
I love sock animals! I think the thing I love about them the most is the fact that they are almost always handmade. You have to love something that is made by hand, especially if it is a gift. I keep a file of sock animal patterns, and since the holidays are coming up, I thought I would share them with you. They are such thoughtful gifts for new babies, little girls or boys and even for the elderly. People love to receive things that are hand made because it shows that you are willing to spend time making a gift especially for them. It is more personal. Trust me, I have given sock animals as gifts for years and they are always well received.
Gourds have been used for a variety of things for hundreds of years. They have been used as bowls or cups to serve food and drink, the carving of sculptures, decorations for the home, storage, masks and even musical instruments. Gourds are used for many things even today, though they are usually more craft or decorative oriented. If you are interested in working with gourds or growing them, read on!
