Top 10 Crafts to Make This Week {3/4}


It’s that time again – I’m feature 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 839 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!

27.  Party Banner/Rag Garland Tutorial – This adorable rag garland is a beautiful addition to any party or holiday!  It’s also a great way to use up fabric scraps.  If you don’t have any scraps you can buy a fabric Jelly Roll at your local craft store.

74.  Family Room Before & After – The transformation of this room is absolutely amazing.  You wouldn’t recognize it from it’s former traditional glory.  It is now vibrant, cheery and definitely homey.  The color palette is phenomenal in yellow, gray and white.

181.  Kids Choice Chores – Isn’t this one of the cutest chore charts and reward system?!  Your child will get to choose what chore they want to do and each chore has a dollar amount to it.  When they are done with the chore they hang the tag on their special hook so they can be rewarded at the end of the week.  I bet you will be surprised by how ambitious your child will be.

247.  Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos – These creamy chicken taquitos look so delicious!  I wasn’t hungry until I saw them.  You can indulge in these because they are made from fresh ingredients and baked – not fried.

304.  Pickup Skirt Tutorial – This pickup skirt is absolutely beautiful!  Are you thinking what I’m thinking?  Easter dress!  How sweet would this look on your daughter too?!


450.  Lucky Banner Printable – “Lucky” for us, this banner is adorable!  Download and print the FREE file, cut, string and hang.  Easy peasy.

585.  Egg Topiary – What a great project to kick off Easter with this pretty Williams-Sonoma inspired robins egg topiary!  Grab your hot glue guns, florist styrofoam, eggs and moss.

641.  Fabric Strip Clutch – I adore this Fabric Strip Clutch.  The yellow zipper gives it that extra pop of color.  This clutch is the perfect addition to almost any outfit.

774.  Update a Sewing Stool – This updated sewing stool is adorable!  You would be shocked at the transformation.  The old stools padding was actually horse hair.  Get out.

823.  Crockpot Lotion Bars – Aren’t these lotion bars cute with the ruffled edges?!  Revitalize and moisturize your hands with this easy crockpot recipe.  We all know the winter months wreak havoc on our skin.  All of the ingredients are melted in the crockpot and then lined in muffin tins.

Wondering what was the most popular {or most clicked on} idea from the linky party? Well… it was Crappy Closet To Crafty Closet.
