Lucky Wishing Stars Tutorial You’ve probably seen these little puffy origami stars before. 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. Now on to the tutorial!

Lucky Wishing Stars Tutorial

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. 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.

Guest post by Heather Grace Green of Garland of Grace I had this idea for a while and finally decided to do it. It’s super easy (because that’s what I’m about) and spices up a boring mug with some simplistic, classy, fun style (because that’s also what I’m about).

DIY Braided Bead Bracelet

DIY Braided Bead Bracelet

It’s been awhile since our last bracelet DIY. 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.
Quelle: villavenga.com Viele von uns sind regelmäßig Kunde bei Ikea, doch so schön die Ikea-Möbel auch sein mögen, die Massenfertigung hat einen Nachteil: Jeder kennt die Stücke, jeder hat sie und man sieht sofort, dass es sich um Ikea handelt. Um aus den Möbeln des schwedischen Riesen doch noch etwas Besonderes zu machen, ist in der Regel Kreativität gefragt. So oder so ähnlich hat wohl auch das Team des neuen niederländischen Labels Villa Venga gedacht. Sie bieten Schonbezüge für alle gängigen Ikea-Möbel an und das in auffälligen und manchmal auch schrägen Designs. Seinen Bezug wählt man einfach im Onlineshop aus und kann damit seine Möbel immer wieder in ein neues Licht rücken.

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 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”.

Rain Blanken here, your DIY Fashion expert over at About.com and rainblanken.com. Kirsten and I often cross paths on social media, where fashion and craft inspiration abounds. When she challenged me to craft a New York Minute with the theme ‘flowers’, I had the perfect project in mind. No matter how many times I do business in Manhattan, I always feel like a wild hillbilly given free-reign of the city.
