Craft Roundup: Legos, Pinecones and NYE Cupcake Toppers

We made it – 2013 has only hours left on the books, and 2014 is perfectly in sight. Looking back on last year, what were some of your family's favorite craft projects? Was there something you were hoping to try but didn't get around to it? If you're lucky to have a few days off as the holiday season winds down, hopefully you and your children will be able to enjoy a craft project or two. This week's Make It has some last-minute party ideas to send 2013 out in crafty style.

Jingle Bell Ankle Bracelet

While you might think this bracelet was for Christmas only, I have a feeling they'd be great for celebrating the New Year as young visitors to your home enjoy the holiday weekend. Try this tutorial from Twodaloo.

Lego Snow Globes

Snow globes are always fun to make – especially in January, when it's actually snowing outside! On minieco, Lego fan Kate shows you how to make these small snow globes using one of your child's favorite minifigs.

Hosting friends and family at your house tonight for the big celebration? Try these simple cupcake toppers by Oleander + Palm that are perfect to present right at midnight.

For any last-minute visits to holiday parties as 2013 winds down and 2014 begins, present a small hostess gift in one of these easy-to-create pinecone boxes, as dreamed up by Sugar and Cloth.
