I see a crafty time ahead

Posted on: August 24, 2012

Its hard to beleive, but we are more than half way through another school term.  I know its a cliched thing to say, but its so true – Time flies! That means school holidays are closer to happening than being over!  Yipee!  I have wall painting plans, but I am already thinking of some fun things to do over the break.

Here are some great diy projects that I think we can do very easily over the next break inbetween painting walls

How’s this for fabulous? DIY Giftbags! Click on the pic & it will take you to the awesome Clare’s Craftroom blog tutorial so you to can make some.

DIY gift bag made from an old knitting book – geniius!

Staying with the paper theme for now, and considering my girls’ love of origami, I think this project will be on each of their list of things to do – what a great idea! Clicking the link will take you to the lovely How About Orange Blog tutorial.

Origami Wall Art I love the simplicity of this, but I can also see my girls taking it a step further. It will be interesting to see what they come up with

I love a simple idea that makes you think “Why didn’t I think of that?”.  This is one of those.  Clicking the pic will take you to this super cute I Heart Nap Time blog tutorial.

Cute as a button paperclip bookmarks

When I saw this tutorial, I thought – wow that looks ace!  Then I saw how it was done and I just had to share it with you.  Its fabulous and fast! Clicking the pic will take you to the trick shared on the Curbly Blog

Mini Vase – amazing fast tute!

Now this one is a bit more complicated, and to be honest, I don’t think its in my skill range.  Besides, my sewing machine is not paying nice at the moment.  Still, its so fabulous I had to share it anyway.  Its from the Craft Passion Blog – be careful – you could get lost in an endless loop of “Oh I can make that” & adding things to your to do list.

So there you go.  Lots of things to keep you busy and creative.  Hope you are inspired 🙂
