5 Handmade Valentine Cards (and how they can make a difference)

Winter can be a long and lonely time of year, especially for older folks who have a harder time getting around.  In many parts of the country this has been a particularly cold and snowy winter, leaving even more elderly members of our communities homebound and isolated.  To help lift the spirits of these people, DoSomething.org has partnered with Meals on Wheels for a campaign …

Make Metallic Striped Candle Holders

I love tall white candles. But sometimes they are so….plain. Luckily, it’s nothing a little masking tape and spray paint can’t fix! Sara from Pop Sugar dressed up these plain candles with different pattern to give them some real personality!  The variety of colors and patterns that you can put together with this idea give it nearly endless possibilities, making it easy to work them …

Make Confetti Sticks

I have a love/hate relationship with confetti.  At the right place and time (and with the proper vacuum attachments), confetti is a fun addition to a celebration.  But storing it, and distributing it for throwing, can be just as messy as the aftermath.  Eliminate some of the mess with these confetti sticks from Jessica at Best Friends for Frosting!   Each stick is filled with a …

Tutorial: DIY Jewelry Organizer with Plastic Canvas

When I saw these sweet unfinished wood hearts in the Valentine section at Michael’s, I bought them without knowing what I’d do with them.  I really don’t need anymore frames, but I could use a lot of help getting organized.  That’s when I decided to turn it into an earring holder.  Instead of the usual chicken wire, I opted to use plastic canvas, which can …

Tutorial: Valentine’s Day Infinity Scarf

Every time the holidays change, I make a point of visiting Dollar Tree to see what’s new for the season.  This year I spotted something that I was instantly drawn to: lightweight fabric scarves.  They were obviously made of cheap materials and weren’t much of anything special on their own, but I had a feeling that with a little DIY they could be transformed into …

Make Felt Animal Envelopes

One of my favorite cheap craft supplies is felt. My local store has a price break when you buy three sheets, so every time I go in needing a sheet of one color I come out with two extras. Which, of course, has added up to quite a large felt stash over the years. So, what can you do with felt? Well, Eva at Handmade …
