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 723 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!

One Smart Cookie

44.  Mason Jar Teacher Gift ~ This adorable Mason Jar Teacher Gift is just in time for back to school teacher gifts!  Fill a jar with your favorite homemade cookies (this one is filled with oatmeal chocolate chip cookies) and cover the lid with a cupcake liner.  Isn’t that such a fantastic idea?  Print the free tags and attach them to the jar with a pretty ribbon or twine.

64.  Plastic Spoon Mirror Tutorial ~ Sunburst mirrors are a beautiful wall accent and can work in just about any home.  There are versions in driftwood, paint sticks, pencils, you name it and you can probably find it.  This sunburst mirror was made with plastic spoons!  Yes, seriously.  The red spray paint on the spoons is a fabulous color choice!

140.  Brass Pull Drawer Makeover ~ If you have a piece of furniture with classic brass Chippendale style pulls or another plain handle and want to revamp it then this tutorial is for you!  These drawer pulls went from plain to fabulous by covering them in decorative paper napkins.  Amazing!

191.  One Hand Swim Suit Cover ~ Yes, you can really put this adorable swim suit sarong on using just one hand while you multi-task with the other.  Or, balance a baby on your hip.  Sound familiar?!  One yard of fabric was used for the sarong cover and 3 separate old t-shirts to make the adorable ombre bustle.

Sock Bun

208.  How to Make a Sock Bun ~ Buns have become a stylish hair-do these days.  You can put them up high, down low or off to the side.  This fantastic video tutorial will show you how you can make this beautiful bun using a mismatched sock.  Your hair will appear fuller and you don’t need any bobby pins.

257.  Boutique Headband Tutorial ~ Have you ever seen a more gorgeous headband?!  Seriously.  I love the combination of the french netting, rhinestones, feathers, tulle and ribbon.  To make it much easier on you, the entire list of supplies and where you can find them are listed.

369.  DIY Crayon Cupcake Holder ~ If you are in need of a teacher gift or a back to school party favor then this seriously adorable crayon cupcake holder is for you!  It’s quick, easy and affordable to make.   All you need is crayons, a paper towel holder, ribbon and a hot glue gun.  The double cupcake liners is fantastic!

481.  Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake ~ Is it just me or is your mouth watering?!  This delectable dessert has a layer of chocolate chip cake and a layer of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.  They cherry on top?  Ganache and rolled cookie dough balls on the top.

 579.   DIY Earrings ~ Look at these gorgeous hoop earrings!  I love the mixtureof rhinestone chain and eye pins that hangs from the hoops.  The step by step tutorial is so easy to follow, if you have not made jewelry before this post will definitely inspire you to give it a try. {wink}

663.  Upholstered Monogram ~ I simply adore monograms!  They are perfect for adding a personalized touch to your home.  This tutorial shows you how to make your own upholstered monogram using styroboard, batting, fabric and glue.
