Top 10 Crafts to Make This Week {4/15}


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 772 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!

29.  $8 DIY Toddler Table – This DIY toddler activity table is fantastic!  It’s definitely one of the most functional end tables for families with small children.  All of the activities were designed using the Silhouette and vinyl.  Indoor vinyl was used so that the design could be changed as the child grew.

87.  Mini Pie Bites – These mini pie bites look absolutely scrumptious!  You can whip these up easily and quickly for any type of gathering.  They are perfect bite-sized snacks so you won’t feel guilty sampling all of them.  {wink}

107.  Laundry Room Makeover – I adore this laundry room makeover!  Can you believe it was made over for under $50?  Get out!  The cabinets were given a fresh coat of turquoise paint and new hardware that spells w-a-s-h.  The gallery wall with mixed letters and frames is definitely a favorite.

148.  Leather Flower Belt – Isn’t this Leather Flower Belt funky and fun?!  It’s also a wonderful refashion of two different skirts.  The elastic portion of the belt is a waistband from an old skirt and the flower is from a leather mini skirt.  It looks adorable with a t-shirt, can you imagine it with a dress or skirt?!

237.  How to Make an Art Deco Watch – This Art Deco Watch is the perfect accessory for your Spring and Summer wardrobe!  It’s a perfect mixture of ribbon, chain link, and decorative flower.

333.  Dollar Store Cupcake Stand – Look at this adorable cupcake stand!  Can you envision several of these in different heights?  How about stacked as a tiered server.  Candles, orbs, trinkets, and finger foods would look amazing on it.  Since the glass candlestick and plate are from the Dollar Store you won’t break the bank making several.

420.  Charger Turned Mirror –  It’s time to finally put those plate charger’s to good use.  Don’t they look amazing as ornate mirrors?!  If they are not the color you want them spray paint them and add a craft mirror.  Voila!

567.  DIY Canvas Calendar – This Pottery Barn knock-off canvas calendar is absolutely darling!  I love that you can change out the month and dates or add something more festive for a holiday.  You can also tuck appointment cards or photos under the ribbon.

626.  Fabric Rosette Wreath – Look at this lovely Fabric Rosette Wreath!  No purchases are necessary for this.  You probably already have everything on hand.  A water noodle was used for the wreath form.  Yes, that’s correct, the ends of a water noodle were taped together.  An old curtain panel to wrap around the noodle and scrap fabric for the rosettes.

723.  Bustle Bottom Skirt + Tutorial – You can’t deny how absolutely darling this bustle skirt is!  It’s also “super simple” to make and perfect for Spring.

Wondering what was the most popular {or most clicked on} idea from the linky party? Well… it was Best Vintage Store Ever.
