Craft Roundup: On-Hand Crafting with Decoupage, Socks, More

When your family is in between play dates, appointments and school functions, what kind of activities do you like to do? As the weather slowly starts to cool down in September, thoughts of fall days and crisp, quiet afternoons aren't that far off. Keep your craft closet stocked with some basic supplies so that when a bit of much-needed downtime arrives, you and your children can kick back and craft. This week's roundup features a few simple projects with items that either are in your house already or could be after a quick trip to the store to stock up.

Decoupaged Magazine Boxes

Plain paper magazine organizers tend to be relatively inexpensive at the store. Personalize a set for your own organization, or your child's papers, from the beginning of the school year with favorite papers, pictures and decoupage paste. Taylor Made shows off her project using a new line of decoupage supplies from Martha Stewart.

Sock Puppets

Over on Freshly Picked, Heather has some wise words with this tutorial. Are we forgetting about the simple crafts of our youth, like sock puppets? Turn to your sock drawer and pull out those mate-less socks and have your children give them new life!

Paper Stripes Favor Boxes DIY

No wrapping paper at home? No problem. Give a plain box a neon update by adding paper stripes just like Oh Happy Day has done.

DIY Neon Finger Knit Statement Necklace

For the up-and-coming knitters in your household, have them try creating this chunky necklace without needles. With a nod to camp survival bracelets, Flax and Twine shows off this project that requires just a roll of nylon paracord.
