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 677 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!

33.  How to Make Pom Pom Balls ~ These yellow yarn pom pom balls are fabulous!  They look amazingly real.  You can easily make them from items already at home just.   Wrap the yarn around a tool (fork, cardboard, etc), remove from tool, snip and add them to twigs for stems.

74.  Watermelon Fudge ~ I adore this out of the box fudge idea.  How colorful and fun!  And, you can eat it.  It’s taken chocolate fudge to a whole new level.

84.  Canvas Photo Transfer {tutorial} ~ Look at this gorgeous baby girl canvas photo!  The colors and texture are amazing.  When you transfer the image to the canvas with gel medium it gives it that beautiful aged appearance.

148.  Free Special Occasion Calendar ~ A special occasion calendar for every month of the year.  Each month is absolutely adorable.  Simply click on the month image and print.  Voila!

243.  How to Make a Heart Braid ~ Make a fancy schmancy heart braid in minutes!  Your girls are gonna love this.  Watch the quick video tutorial to learn how.

319.  Button Statement Ring ~ These big and bold statement rings are fantastic!  You can pick up a package of 8 ring flats at Michael’s for only $3.19.  Use your E-6000 glue to adhere the buttons to the ring flats.  That’s it!  Easy peasy.

370.  Chiffon Floral Clutch ~ Rehab a plain clutch purse with chiffon flowers.  Love.  Love.  Love.  It’s perfect for special occasions.  Cut your chiffon flowers with a die cut machine, sew them to felt backs and hot glue to your plain clutch.  I can already envision this in other seasonal colors.

454.  Silhouette and Chalkboard Dresser ~ This antique dresser makeover has some of my favorite elements, chalkboard and a silhouette.  I adore how the silhouette is of their little girl.  Mod podge vintage fabric on the drawer fronts and a chalkboard mirror.  It’s definitely fit for a princess!

540.  Lampshade Makeover ~ This Anthropologie inspired lampshade is a phenomenal statement piece!  Six rolls of grosgrain ribbon were used to complete the makeover.  Start by securing the ribbon with a safety pin and begin wrapping around the shade.

676.  Painted Wedge Sandals ~ Add some pizzaz to your wedge sandals!  Using acrylic paint simply paint your stripes on the layers of twine.
