Top 10 Crafts to Make This Week {5/20}


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 604 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!

45.  Herringbone Table Makeover ~ This distressed herringbone pattern on the table top is amazing!  It’s a perfect makeover project for an already well distressed table.  You don’t even have to buy a stencil.  Find a google image that you adore, fix the scale and print it on card stock.

67.  Prom Dress Vintage Upcycle ~ The transformation of this vintage dress is stunning!  The only resemblance of the old dress is the fabric.  Approximately 8-10 pieces of fabric from the ruffles and sleeves were pieced together to recreate a new top.  The final result is absolutely beautiful!

127.  Button Earring Holder ~ Keep your earrings organized with this simple trick, buttons.  It’s an easy and inexpensive way to keep your dangling and stud earrings from getting lost.  Simply glue the buttons onto organza ribbon and pierce the backs of your earrings through the button holes.  Once you have paired your earrings together you can roll up the ribbon and you are set for traveling.

202.  Antiqued Clothespin Art ~ Add some pizzazz to your laundry room with these fun and colorful vinyl clothespin artwork!  Add the vinyl clothespins to boards that were painted white.  An application of mod podge and staining/antiquing medium gives it the antiqued look.  You can download the free file for the clothespins.

229.  Vintage Greeting Cards ~ A little birdie told me…you can download and print these four fabulous vintage cards for free!  Yep, for free!  Simply download the file, print on card stock, score and fold.  Voila!  It’s as simple as that.

279.  Garlic Butter Breadsticks ~ Isn’t warm soft bread one of the best indulgences?  So delicious!  They compliment soup, salad, pasta, and just about any entree.  You can bake your own breadsticks in about 10 minutes using the homemade pizza dough recipe.

375.  DIY Lace Crown ~ Oh my stars, could this lace crown be any more darling?!  This would be fabulous for the birthday girl to wear at her party or even given away as party favors.  Lace, fabric stiffener, glitter, buttons and metallic paint is all you will need to make this lovely!

415.  Fabric Scraps Lamp ~ Look at this fabulous lampshade redo!  The original fabric was removed from the shade.  The metal frame was painted a fun flamingo pink.  Then, the fun part, tying strips of coordinating fabric to the frame.  For some extra flair you can wrap washi tape around the base of the low watt light bulb.

502.  Jello Cookies ~ The bright colors of these cookies are fun and fabulous!  You can make jello cookies and play dough with this delicious recipe.  Your kiddos will not only love to play with the dough, but will also love eating the baked cookies.

603.  You Rock Tin Gift ~ This adorable “You Rock” tin is a perfect year round gift for the teacher!  It’s a great idea for the beginning of the year to butter up the teacher, Valentine’s day, teacher appreciation day, or an end of the year goodbye treat.  You could whip up several in a matter of minutes because they are so easy.

Wondering what was the most popular {or most clicked on} idea from the linky party? Well… it was DIY Spring Wardrobe.
