Craft Roundup DIY Headband, Bookplates, Lace T-Shirt, More
Smaller projects can be low-stress and perfect summer fun for kids just getting started with making stuff. Here are four (and more!) ideas from cool blogs.
Are you sometimes overwhelmed when trying to decide on a new craft project? Big projects can definitely make us worry when we think of buying supplies, looking for a place for the kids to work – and then, of course, cleaning it all up. But fear not! This week's roundup features little tutorials that pack a big punch when finished. Make sure to spend some time looking at the results of Martha Stewart's #CraftsForKids contest – some wonderful ideas from some great, crafty kids!
Kids can do the coolest things! Take a look at this roundup of awe-inspiring projects submitted by tomorrow's next generation of crafters in Martha Stewart's contest – including patriotic flip flops, party masks and oodles of small animals and critters.
Give your headband collection a hint of punk flair with this idea from Brit + Co. It combines silver spikes with a softer ribbon wrap for a cute, cutting edge look.
Giving a new craft project book to someone? Print your own bookplates, courtesy of designer Cathe Holden. These pretty printables hail from the Chronicle Craft blog (hang onto them for those upcoming school textbooks, too!).
It doesn't take a lot to turn an old T-shirt into a new piece of clothing. Lovely lace trim is hand-stitched onto a T over on The Polka Dot Chair blog. Maybe add some to a purse or even a notebook, too? Let the kiddos brainstorm.
