Tutorial: Flocked Easter Bunnies from Eggs

Have you ever tried a new-to-you product and wondered how you lived without it?  I bought a lot of Martha Stewart Flocking Powder on clearance last year, unsure of what I’d do with it.  I started playing around with it and I’m hooked.  It’s such a fun product to work with!  I like using it on cards, but I especially like the look achieved when …

Tutorial: Scented Plush Easter Animal

This is the perfect gift for someone who wants the fragrance of a candle but can’t use a candle.  Some of these places include nurseries, children’s rooms, Senior Care facilities, the office, and I’m sure you can think of a few other places.

Tutorial: Easy Shamrock Bow

Shamrocks, shamrocks everywhere – it’s that time of year again!  I dug out all of my green craft supplies recently in honor of St. Patrick’s Day and came up with this easy shamrock bow made out of ribbon.  I used burlap ribbon, which is a strip of burlap that is finished on the sides so it won’t unravel, but you can use any green ribbon …

Tutorial: Celtic Knot Art

A Celtic knot is a great addition not only to your St. Patrick’s Day decorating, but also to your year-round home decor!  The eye-catching, complex designs of Celtic knots are almost mesmerizing, but creating this knot art is a lot easier than you might think.

Tutorial: St. Patrick’s Day Headband

Have you seen the long, skinny scarves that Dollar Tree had for St. Patrick’s Day the last couple of years?  I realized that they are absolutely perfect for making fabric flowers, which inspired me to make this fun headband!  If you can’t find these scarves (the best seasonal stuff usually sells out pretty quick), then you can also substitute any long, skinny strip of fabric.

Tutorial: Mini Easter Wreath

Dollar Tree is a great place to find inexpensive styrofoam pieces for crafting.  I like to stock up on the egg shapes when Easter is here.  I combined several small styrofoam pieces to make an adorable mini wreath for Easter.  This would be cute on a dorm door, in a window, on an office bulletin board, or any other small space that could use some …
