Top 10 Crafts to Make This Week {12/23}


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 434 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!

Candy Cane Crumble Cookies

28.  Candy Cane Crumble Cookies ~ Soft, chewy, chocolate-y and mint-y.  Sounds like the perfect holiday cookies.  Did I forget to mention that there’s Nutella in them also?  Yumm-o!

Winterized Dollar Store Vases

47.  Winterized Dollar Store Vases ~ Turn dollar store cylinder glass vases into festive winter vases by adding snow effects.  They are quite versatile which makes them perfect for decorating your home or giving them as gifts.

It Takes a Glitter Village

123.  It Takes a Glitter Village ~ Transform dollar store village pieces into bright and glittery ones.  The glitter makes them look like they have freshly fallen snow.  Beautiful!

Nutty Maple Muffins

193.  Nutty Maple Muffins ~ Don’t these maple hazelnut muffins look absolutely scrumptious?  They’re soft, moist and full of fall flavors.  They would be a terrific addition to a brunch or even Christmas morning breakfast.

Leather & Lace Bracelet

264.  Leather & Lace Bracelet ~ The combination of these two hot trending items is simple yet fashionable.  Simply weave suede cording through some lace.  If you still need to make some last minute Christmas gifts this is a perfect and quick tutorial.

No-Sew Leather & Wool Flask Sleeve

290.  No-Sew Leather & Wool Flask Sleeve ~ This leather and wool flask sleeve is a perfect gift for the favorite man in your life, father or grandfather.  It would also be great as a groomsmen gift.  The best part is that it’s a no-sew project.

5 Free Printable Gift Tags

305.  5 Free Printable Gift Tags ~ Five beautiful holiday gift tags to download, print and attach to your packages.  They’re all free!

5 Easy Holiday Garlands

333.  5 Easy Holiday Garlands ~ Five simple holiday garlands that are no-sew so they are quick and easy.  The tutorials are for an ornament garland, flag garland, snowflake garland and a paper chain garland.  Using different colored card stock you could make these garlands work for any holiday or occasion.

Faux Fur Infinity Scarf

345.  Faux Fur Infinity Scarf ~ This gorgeous faux fur infinity scarf looks warm and cozy!  The pattern is for a woman sized scarf, but could easily be used for a child.  Only 1/2 yard of faux fur fabric and 1/2 yard of lining is used.


415.  Homemade Makeup ~ Make your own mineral powder for a fraction of the cost.  It’s made with organic cornstarch, French green clay and cocoa powder for a little tint.  If you have oily skin then this is perfect for you because the cornstarch absorbs oil.  {wink}
