Sometimes you just want to craft, but you don’t want to leave the house to buy supplies. No problem! Here are four fun upcycled craft ideas for you, using stuff you probably already have at home, either in your kitchen cupboards, your junk drawer, or your kids’ toybox! I don’t know about you but I totally want to clean my junk drawer out and make that fun charm necklace!
1. Cupcake Liner Party Hat by Jaderbomb:
I am sooo guilty of collecting cupcake liners (here’s how I store them, by the way!). Now I know what to do with all my extra cupcake liners: make a jaunty party hat!
2. Recycled Jar Candle Holder by Cathie Filian at Handmade Happy Hour:
Everyone has a few empty jars waiting around in their kitchen — why not recycle one into these adorable candle holders? This cute design is perfect for a patriotic holiday, or for any day!
3. DIY Father’s Day Frame by Margot Potter for iLoveToCreate:
This adorable Father’s Day frame can be made with your kiddo’s extra cars, or you can get the cars and the frame at the dollar store like Margot did! I love the saying “Nice guys finish best” but I think any dad would also love to see a photo of himself with his children in this frame. Need more Father’s Day craft ideas?
4. Junk Charm Choker by Mark Montano:
In his Make Your Mark video this week, Mark teaches us how to make this amazing statement necklace by cleaning out your junk drawer. I’m not kidding, I’m going to make one of these necklaces as soon as I get done writing this!
