Top 10 Crafts To Make This Week {8/7}

Last weeks Handmade Project linky party grew to over 626 tutorials. Rock on ladies!  So today I’m featuring my top 10 crafts to make this week.  Yep, they are my top 10 favorite crafts, parties, recipes, and DIY tutorials from Tip Me Tuesday!  I hope you find something fabulous that you’d like to make this week as well.

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. Chalkboard Notebook – A fun and different way to cover a basic composition notebook using homemade chalkboard paint. Great for back-to-school.

47.  Table Top Chalkboard – Repurpose a tabletop frame or mirror into this chic chalkboard.  Perfect for leaving notes or you can also use magnets to keep track of small papers.

60.  Camping Playdate – A creative way to go all-out for a kid’s playdate.  Love the idea of a “s’mores bar”..

77.  New-to-me Use for a Mason Jar – Apparently, lots of standard blenders can be used with just a regular mason jar – who knew?!  Mix up your own frapuccino and all you need is a straw.

105.  Making your deck a GAMEBOARD – Turn you backyard into a giant board game.  Each spot is a fun activity.  This also makes for lots of great photo ops.

112.  Dr. Seuss Snack & printable – Although you can purchase this book to fill in with your own kiddos information, this post also has a free printable option – as well as a fun Cat in the Hat treat the kids will like to make as much as they like to eat.

117.  Back to School, Friday Fun – This fun art project for kids is made from shaving cream and acrylic paint.  Very cool.

194.  Fresh Vietnamese Spring Rolls – This detailed tutorial shows you step-by-step how to create these delicious and healthy appetizers.

228.  Pumpkin Pancakes – I love anything pumpkin, but I think the vanilla glaze sold me.  I don’t know if I want these for breakfast or dessert.

623.  Mini Assignment book – I love all the sweet detail in this mini album.  What a great gift for a young lady headed back to school!
