Top 10 Crafts to Make This Week {5/6}

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 790 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!

9.  Five Minute Cake in a Mug  – This chocolate cake in a mug looks absolutely scrumptious!  How fantastic that it’s cooked in a mug?!  This treat would be perfect for a neighbor gift, a sweet indulgence, slumber parties, Mother’s Day, or even a teacher’s gift.  The best part is that they are cooked in the microwave and use minimal ingredients!

79.  Graphic Bow Blouse – What a terrific way to embellish a plain blouse with this beautiful bow!  You can up-cycle a plain blouse or t-shirt by sewing 1 yard of fancy trim into the shape of a bow.  Beautiful!

154.  DIY Live Edge Table – This is one of the most amazing outdoor table restorations I have seen!  It used to have a glass table top, now it has this fabulous solid wood live edge top.  You can create these beautiful edges by using a belt sander.  Did I mention that there is a recessed ice bucket in the center of the table?!

213.  Chore Chart {Tutorial} – This chore chart definitely is ‘cute’!  The vinyl stick figures are perfect for representing each family member.  The chores/responsibilities are backed with magnets so they can easily be changed out.

347.  Anthro Inspired Wrapped Letter – I adore this fabric wrapped letter.  The mixture of different fabric prints is fab!  It’s a simple project that only uses a hot glue gun, fabric and a cardboard letter.  The choices are endless.

403.  Bunting Necklace – This bunting necklace is a must have accessory for Spring and Summer!  The best part is that it’s a no-sew project.  Wouldn’t this be a great Mother’s Day or Teacher Appreciation gift?  You could easily make several of them at a time.

522.  DIY Canned Food Organizer – This DIY Canned Food Organizer Cabinet is fab!  If you are lacking food storage then this project is for you.  It nestles in a 6″ space between the refrigerator and wall.  Follow the detailed schematic to make your own cabinet organizer.  Add caster wheels and a handle to easily pull it out.

600.  Bear Girl – This bear girl beanie is absolutely darling!  You can crochet one in just a few hours.  Embellish it with some bows or weave a pretty ribbon through it.  This would make a terrific baby shower gift!

726.  Embroidered Hand Prints – These embroidered hand prints are a wonderful way to freeze a moment in time.  Trace the entire families hand prints with washable ink and go over them with a simple back-stitch using embroidery thread.  I love that each hand print is in a different coordinating color.  Frame it and your have a masterpiece.

772.  Egg Sausage Polenta – This savory egg sausage polenta recipe looks amazing!  It was baked in a muffin pan which makes individual sized servings.  Perfect for breakfast or brunches.
