Top 10 Crafts to Make This Week {11/20}


It’s that time again – I’m featuring my top ten crafts to make this week from last Tuesday’s linky party. I hope you find something fabulous that you’d like to make this week as well. I had to narrow it down from over 902 posts. Whew!  


These are just the 10 tutorials that I had time to highlight right now, you’ll see many more on this and the other Tip Junkie sister sites as well. So a huge thank you for those who took the time to link up their fabulous tutorials!  


19. Sewing Machine Tips – These sewing machine tips are amazing!  If you are a {mender} like myself or someone more skilled, you will love these extremely helpful tips on needles, tension, and stitch length.    


54. Broccoli Cheddar Soup – There isn’t a better comfort food for a cold winter day!  Mmm, delicious homemade soup!  I love how it is served in a bread bowl.  


193. Thumbtack Trees – Aren’t these gorgeous silver Christmas trees?  Guess what they are made of?  Just two items, thumbtacks and styrofoam.  These trees would look spectacular with garland around them or even spray painted a different color.  


265. Book Page Flower Wreath – Love. Love. Love this book page flower wreath!  There are endless options with these flowers.  They would look so adorable strung in a garland.   How about a beautiful addition to a wrapped present!   


315. Charming Necklace Tutorial – Look at how lovely this necklace is!  The choice of color with the offset of yellow gives it the perfect touch.  This would make a perfect Christmas gift.  Don’t forget to make one for yourself. {wink}  


448. DIY Padded Camera Bag – Isn’t this an adorable handmade camera bag?  I love the choice of fabrics and colors!   It is not only cute and fashionable it keeps your camera safe and secure.  How fantastic is that!   


555. DIY Media Centre – One man’s trash is another’s treasure!  What a treasure this old chest is!  The old charm was beautifully “recaptured” by turning it into a media centre.   


656. Pumpkin Pie Playdough – You don’t get to eat this pumpkin pie.  Instead, your kids will have fun playing with this yummy scented playdough.  What a great opportunity to keep them preoccupied while you are busy cooking, crafting or cleaning this holiday season.  {Shhh} You may want to play with it too!


 768. I’m {Thankful} – Look at this colorful and festive banner for Thanksgiving!  The striped ribbons are definitely the cherry on top!  There’s still time to utilize your paper crafting skills for Thanksgiving.  


899. Burlap Memo Board  – What a fabulous way to use burlap!  The contrast of white stripes and black lettering give it a vintage feel.  It looks like a Ballard Designs find.
