Top 10 Crafts to Make This Week {2/5}


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 976 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!

72.  Handcrafted Pendants – Look at these lovely silver handcrafted pendants!  It’s hard to believe that they are made from salt dough.  Yep.  Salt dough.  Even adults still like to play with dough. {wink}

111.  Party Favors Tutorial – These party favors are absolutely adorable.  You can make these for any party.  Wedding.  Baby shower.  Birthday party.  Simply choose card stock that coordinates with your theme, cut and assemble.  They are perfect to hold mints or other small candies.

153.  Mommy Photog Class {free} – Do you know what aperture, ISO or shutter speed means?  I don’t know what half of the buttons and features on my camera are for.  You can learn how to take phenomenal photographs that actually show water droplets.

249.  Newest Revamp Chair – The transformation of this chair is phenomenal.  You wouldn’t recognize the old chair.  The frame was painted black and re-upholstered.

362.  Chocolate Ravioli Hearts – These chocolate ravioli hearts look absolutely delicious!  Sinful too!  We all need some sweet treats for our sweets, right?!  It’s only once a year.

459.  Handkerchief Skirt Tutorial – This handkerchief skirt is seriously adorable!  I *heart* it!  Wouldn’t this be fabulous for an adult?  There’s a tutorial to learn how to do pin tucks and the handkerchief skirt.

595.  Ombre Yarn Letters  – L*O*V*E!  Two-toned bright and vibrant love letters for Valentine’s Day.  Simply wrap yarn around cardboard or wood letters.

692.  Springy Silky Scarf Shirt – I simply adore this scarf blouse!  The lightness of the silk scarves will make this a perfect spring of summer blouse.  The tie in the back will also accentuate your waistline.  You don’t have to be an expert seamstress for this.

857.  Herringbone Color-Blocked Wall Pattern – This color-blocked herringbone wall pattern definitely makes a statement!  A major transformation for a laundry room.  It would be fabulous in a family or living room as well.

953.  Family History Report – Isn’t this family history report fabulous?!  Not your ordinary report.  I love that newspaper articles are the background.  The way the timeline is formatted is genius.  This project will help your children learn about their heritage as well as organization and time management.

Wondering what was the most popular {or most clicked on} idea from the linky party? Well… it was Fun Valentine Ideas. Thanks Ladies. I just adore these ideas! Feel free to grab my “I was featured on Tip Junkie” blog button. You earned it! {{knuckle bumps}}

    I was really missing the “ideas” linked up so I could scroll thru and see them ALL without having to click to a new page. Glad to see it again. 976 ideas linked, should keep me busy for awhile. The reason I love this feature so much is that you do not have to hunt down who did it & how to do it, it is right there. Thank you! I love your site!
