Top 10 Crafts to Make This Week {6/17}


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 571 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!

20.  5 Minute Fabric Rosettes ~ I love this simple and inexpensive technique for making fabric rosettes.  Courtney says, “If you can twist and roll fabric and dab some glue, you’re golden.”  They are made by using fat quarters and mod podge for adhesive.  Add these lovelies to headbands, homemade jewelry, brooches, clothing or anywhere your heart desires.

69.  Label Love ~ Look at these 3 easy and adorable ways to label organization bins!  After you’ve spent the time to organize why not take the extra step to enhance?  Right?!  The mixture of these techniques is fab!  My favorite is the spray painted Tim Holtz brackets.

124.  Sew a Clutch Purse ~ Accessorize your wardrobe with a fun and flirty clutch purse.  There’s a video tutorial to help you make your own as well as a step by step photo tutorial to finish the clutch.

158.  Girl Bedroom W/DIY Crafts ~ Isn’t this little girl’s bedroom absolutely darling?!  Almost everything in the room was DIY/handmade.  Megan has so amazingly added tutorials to make the embroidery ring art, flower makeover, butterfly mobile, art above the rocker and the round mirror!  It’s a makeover’s dream come true!

209. Driveway Photography ~ Who would have thought that sidewalk chalk could be so much fun?!  It’s definitely a creative outlet and fun activity for the family.  This is a definite must for your summer bucket list.

258.  Better Than Anything Cake ~ This has to be one of the best decadent desserts in existence!  Chocolate, whipped cream, toffee and caramel, mmm good!  My whole family loves it.  And, it’s so easy to make.

301.  DIY Maxi Skirt & Dress ~ This maxi skirt and dress ‘in one’ is a must have for your summer wardrobe!  It’s comfy, versatile, and easy.  You don’t have to be an advanced sewer to make it either.

380.  Free Patriotic Printables ~ Celebrate the Fourth of July with these fabulous free printables!  The free printables include cupcake toppers and subway art.

464.  Fabric Scraps Necklace ~ I adore this layered fabric necklace!  Twelve strips of fabric were braided into four different lengths and then sewed together.  You can leave it plain or add a fabric bow for extra pizzazz.

570.  How to Remove Chippy Veneer ~ This is a wonderful tutorial to redo a piece of furniture that has warped, bubbled or chipped veneer.  The trick to getting the veneer off is to heat the glue so that you can easily scrape it off.  After you have removed the veneer you can sand and paint.

  1. I am in love with the little girls room! No one expect a person to paint a baby girls room blue, but how you guys did it with the white and all the accents with the green and pink, makes it look great! Plus it can be very versatile if the couple decides to have another baby and the baby turns out to be a boy.
