Top 10 Crafts to Make This Week {4/8}


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 902 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!

54.  Birdseed Wreath – Spring is in the air and so are the blissful sounds of birds chirping.  Lure them to your home with this beautiful birdseed wreath.  This wreath would also make a wonderful housewarming or hostess gift.

99.  Asparagus Tart – This colorful Asparagus Tart looks absolutely delicious!  Don’t you just love cooking with fresh, colorful seasonal vegetables?  I certainly do.  Add this recipe to your last minute Easter brunch or Springtime meal.

156.  DIY Capiz Shell Chandelier – Isn’t this faux Capiz Shell Chandelier gorgeous?!  Real one’s run around $200, but you can make your own for under $10.  Get out!  Seriously, the shells are made with wax paper.

290.  DIY Accent Kitchen Cabinet – Update your ‘forgotten’ kitchen cabinet, the one above your refrigerator!  You can turn it from drab to fab by removing the cabinet doors, adding beadboard to the back, and painting it!  There are some great ideas and tips to decorate this new pretty space.

349.  DIY Faux Metal Tutorial – You definitely could have fooled me with this faux metal art.  It looks amazingly real.  It’s a thin piece of wood in disguise.  A salt technique is used to give it the faux rusty look.

434.  TJ Maxx Bag to Apron – Seriously, could these aprons get any cuter?  You can make two aprons, one for mom and one for your little girl, from one TJ Maxx bag.  The bag is non-fraying so you don’t have any hems to sew.  Yay!  The handles are reattached for the neck strap and the tie back.

537. Sequin and Glittered Eggs – These lovelies don’t have to be just for Easter.  They would be beautiful displayed throughout Spring.  Add them to baskets, candlesticks, or tablescapes.

693.  S’mores Cupcakes – I’ve gone into a chocolate comma looking at these delectable s’mores cupcakes!  You don’t have to go camping anymore to have s’mores.  And, they even have the toasted marshmallow on top.  You can whip these bad boys up in your own kitchen.

706.  Washi Tape Twist Ties – Look at these fun and colorful Washi Tape Twist Ties!  They are so easy to make.  You just might want to stock up on them.  Quickly add them to a cellophane gift bag or treat bag for the perfect adornment.

881.  Elegant Home Office Makeover – This Elegant Home Office Makeover looks like a page from Ballard Design.  It is much more than elegant, it’s fab-u-lous!  The old room was dark and dated, but now it is vibrant and chic.  The whole room was renovated for under $400.

Wondering what was the most popular {or most clicked on} idea from the linky party? Well… it was 22 Uses for Plastic Eggs.
