Top 10 Crafts to Make This Week {5/27}

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 811 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!

34.  Montgomery Pie ~ Satisfy your sweet tooth with this delicious Montgomery Pie!   “It is a bit like cake on the top and a firm sugary “goo” on the bottom.”  Yummy!

95.  Gray & White Nursery ~ This gray and white striped elephant nursery is absolutely darling!  There are some amazing ideas to refurbish “hand-me-down” furniture and give your bundle of joy their own beautiful space without breaking the bank.

191.  No-Sew Pillowcase Dress ~ You don’t have to know how to sew to make this adorable dress!  Can you believe it, NO sewing?!  It’s two bandanas, iron-on hem tape, and grosgrain ribbon.

267.  Etched Glass ~ These etched milk bottles are too cute!  Guess what?!  They are Starbucks Frappuccino bottles with DIY etching.  The personal touch is brilliant.  How adorable would these be at a party with each child’s name on them!

350.  Herbal Foot Soak ~ Soothe your achy feet with this herbal foot soak!  Dried lavender, mint leaves, bergamot petals and essential oils are some of the ingredients that make this foot soak heavenly scented.  Add the ingredients in a pretty jar and shake to mix.  That’s it, very simple!  Keep it to pamper yourself or give it away for a beautiful homemade gift.

447.  Gnocchi, Sweet Corn & Arugula in Cream Sauce ~ Doesn’t this gnocchi look amazing?!  It has fresh mushrooms, corn on the cob, arugula and basil.  It’s a perfect light summer meal.  Buon appetito!

562.  Vintage {Button} Bracelet ~ Isn’t this vintage button bracelet fabulous?!  You can easily make your own with plastic craft store buttons, charms, jump rings, lobster clasps and your handy dandy E-6000 glue.

636.  How to Faux a Wood Table Look with Glaze ~ This faux wood glaze finish is absolutely beautiful!  You can use this ‘glaze’ technique on almost any surface even laminate.  Begin by antiquing something with glaze, and then adding another darker glaze to deepen the color.

761.  Beaded Monogram Tutorial ~ Look at this fabulous beaded monogram!  I love how it is displayed in the empty frame…very clever!  Stem wire was used to make the shape of the desired monogram and a bead necklace strand.

803.  Placemat Pillows ~ These pillows add the perfect punch of color to your patio.  The combination of turquoise and yellow is fantastic!  Can you believe that the turquoise pillow was originally a placemat?  Get out!  Use a seam ripper on one side of the placemat to open the seam, stuff with batting and sew the open seam back together!  Voila!

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