Lucky Wishing Stars Tutorial

They are really quick to make, and you don’t need any special materials to make them. You can buy lucky star pre-cut strips from origami stores, but you can just as easily make your own from medium weight coloured paper, e.g. scrapbooking paper, or even strips cut from magazine pages – as the strips are so narrow, the original text or image won’t be obvious in the finished star. Anti-clockwise from top left: pre-cut strips, paper cutter, scrapbook paper, magazine page. Christmas tree ornament mobile. This year we decided to do something a little different with our tree and I created this Christmas tree mobile consisting of ornaments suspended on clear threads.

When I was shopping for ornaments to use found a lot on sale and went a little crazy. I decided it would be worth it to see how three different options would look. Hot Cocoa Kit. HOW-TO MAKE A HOT COCOA KITby Destri of The Mother Huddle There just isn't much that a three year old can create that isn't something only a mother would love.

Hot Cocoa Kit

I thought and thought about what my little boy could make his friends for Christmas and finally came up with a Hot Cocoa Kit. Over the course of a week we worked on little projects to add to the kit, and I can't tell you how much fun we had with it. He got to mash things, melt things, sprinkle things, dip things, fill things....all sorts of sensory play. He is so proud of himself and can't wait to give them out. If you find your kids getting restless for the big day to arrive this would be a great project to tackle until it comes. HOT COCOA KIT You may choose to only add one or two elements to the kit, but I will give you a list of what we used. Set The Stage. Photo Sun Catcher. DIY.

DIY Braided Bead Bracelet

I don’t know about you, but our wrists have been begging for another colorful addition for months now. So after playing with some materials that were already on hand, we’ve created a tutorial for a braided bead bracelet, which is a not so distant cousin of the hex nut and wrap bracelet. Because honestly, you can never have too many . . . You’ll need: Cut the waxed linen cord into a 26″ and 19″ piece. Tie a knot about half an inch down from the loops.

Kids’ Crafternoon Book Giveaway. I’m happy to be part of the blog tour for the new kids’ crafting books from Kathreen Ricketson of Whip Up.

Kids’ Crafternoon Book Giveaway

Kids’ Crafternoon Sewing and Kids’ Crafternoon Papercraft are published by Australian publisher Hardie Grant, but you can also find the books online in the U.S. from independent sellers through amazon. Kathreen compiled and edited this series of books with many different contributors (including me), who developed 25 projects for each of the books. Two more books in the series will be available this fall — beading and felting. As with all of Kathreen’s kid projects, they seem to be “kid-tested, mother-approved”. Workshop: Teeadventskalender.

Tiny Polaroid Magnets. Hi there! It’s felt like forever since I’ve last blogged, and has felt like an eternity since I’ve done anything crafty and nifty. Since my morning sickness has gone into full speed (yes, we’re expecting our third this fall!) I haven’t felt like myself. But nothing like inspiration to wake one out of a reverie — or nightmare, in my constantly sick state. I came across these DIY Pantone chip magnets on How About Orange and wanted to do something similar.
