Growing up around creative people as I did, you can begin to see how simple things are the raw stuff for making magic. And that’s what’s so fun about crafts and diy, you really create something out of “nothing;” suddenly you have a new favourite dress, where before it was just sheets of fabric, flowers where there was a blank canvas, a coffee table with old boards of wood … and on.
We promise you some innovative projects to come on Hello Creative Family. And we’ll bring them to you minus the intimidation factor that can keep you closeted as a crafter.
Recently we rounded up our top recipes for your sweet tooth. Now let’s take a look at our favorite craft and diy projects from Sew Creative Blog.
How to Mount a Photo to Canvas
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and this is an amazing gift idea for Grandma! With less than $5, you can create a meaningful and impressive present for a special woman in your life. This is an easy project; one you can tackle any day of the week.
DIY Paper Wedding Bouquet and Matching Flower Girl Barrettes
Ah, we love weddings and we love flowers (and we also love the Cricut Explorer). That’s what Crystal used to make these beautiful, vibrant paper flowers (and matching barrettes) as part of the Cricut Design Space Star Challenge. They won’t wilt and no matter the occasion (my husband made me paper flowers for our paper wedding anniversary) they will be there to commemorate it for years to come.
DIY Pallet Mason Jar Herb Garden
Here’s a great weekend project for the whole family and it remakes the versatile pallet into something so functional (and pretty). It is also a great way to grow herbs, especially if you are low on outdoor space. Love it!
Photo to Wood Transfer Tutorial
This is one of the most popular posts from Sew Creative and with good reason. It creates a unique, and beautiful, handmade item and it makes a great gift (Father’s Day is also just around the corner!) This is an easy-to-follow tutorial.
How to Make DIY Giant Tissue Paper Flowers
I’ve seen Crystal whip one of these up in about 5 minutes. It may not take long (and cost much – about 50 cents per flower) but the results have BIG impact. These are great as decoration for a birthday party.
