Top 10 Crafts to Make This Week {11/25}


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 521 posts. Phew!

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!

65.  Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes ~ Nothing says the holiday season is here more than peppermint.  These scrumptious Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes are sure to tantalize your taste buds!  They are semi-homemade from a Betty Crocker cake mix, peppermint bark, peppermint oil and Cool Whip chocolate frosting.

115.  How to Clean Your Washing Machine ~ Who would have thought that washing machines need cleaning too?  This simple 2-ingredient recipe is perfect for bringing your washing machine back to it’s former glory.  I guarantee you will have the necessary ingredients already in your home.  {{wink}}

176.  Felt Circles Pillow ~ Make a beautiful fall felt pillow from felt circles, left over drop cloth, and plain white fabric.  The entire project costs under $10.  It would be perfect for any season just by changing the felt colors.

215.  Dry Dip Mix Party Favor ~ These Dry Dip Mix Party Favors are not only easy, but useful and tasty.  The recipe is for bacon bite dip mix.  The only ingredient the recipient has to add is cream cheese.  Wrap the seasoning packets in kraft paper, burlap and add a simple printed tag.  They would also make fantastic neighbor gifts.

241.  Knitted Bow Scarf ~ Keep your little one warm and fashionable in this adorable knitted bow scarf!  Using chunky yarn will make the knitting quicker and easier.

252.  Fall Family Pictures ~ Creatively Living shows you some fun ways to take family pictures.  And, it’s just in time for Christmas cards.  You can also edit your photos with Picmonkey and Photoshop.

323.  Clothespin Airplanes ~ These little clothespin airplanes are soaring with fun!  They’re perfect for party favors and decorating an airplane themed birthday party (there’s an amazing party post you don’t want to miss).

418.  Free Printable Chevron Party Kit ~ Are you in a pinch for adorable party printables?  This entire party kit is perfect for male or female of all ages.  It includes invitations, cupcake toppers, thank you tags, place cards, gift bags and a banner!

431.  Vanity Trash Rescue ~ The transformation of this roadside find is absolutely astonishing.  Two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Gray were applied.  Gold Rub’n Buff was painted on the wood details and then distressed with a sanding sponge.

518.  DIY Christmas Trees ~ Make your own exquisite Christmas trees from poster size card board, glue, glitter, beads and feathers. They’re so easy and inexpensive to make you can have a whole village of trees.
