Random Tutorial Generator. Fabricatedends: Guest Post: Weaving on a Cardboard loom. Art education for children is an important part of any school curriculum. It allows them to explore their creativity and develop the right side of their brains. However, while these programs include a variety of activities from drawing and painting to sculpture and collages, weaving is often left out of the equation. In fact, weaving is quite easy to teach to children – all that’s needed are homemade cardboard looms and colorful yarn.

For children who aren’t as confident with their skills at drawing or working with clay, weaving provides a wonderful alternative for them to create a work of art that they can be proud of. There are many proven benefits to weaving for children’s development. If you have children, weaving is also a great weekend craft to do together. Jan Pierce is a 4th grade teacher who has over 20 years of experience in the classroom.

I heart almost every piece Nicole Richie designs for House Of Harlow 1960, especially her oversized rings. As amazing as these rings are they’re also an easy DIY. My friend Jenni, from I Spy DIY, did a project a few months back where she transformed buttons into earrings. #SuperFab This got me thing…let’s transform buttons into statement rings! Buttons, buttons everywhere!! Materials: Buttons, Clippers, Glue, Rings With Flat Tops (available at the jewelry supply store) Use your clippers to remove the shank from the back of the button.

Once you’ve made the back of the button flat, use an ample amount of glue to secure the ring to the back of the button. Here’s another hint: If you can’t find a flat ring base, Ring Pops are a fun alternative. Once the base has dried, glue on the button.

New Ring Designs. November 24th, 2010 A while ago I bought lots of antique silver spoon sets when we visited Colin’s sister Morag and her family over the summer as they live near Spoon Central – a little village called Horncastle that is full to the brim with small antique shops. As I’ve been without my camera for what seems like months, I’ve not been able to photograph any of my ‘work in progress’ for a while. I have been busy, just not really been able to blog about it. Well my camera arrived back from the lab all shiny and new the other day and so today I spent some time taking images of the new rings I’ve made from the spoons I bought over the summer. So here are a few shots of my new rings – in spoon format and then transformed into things of beauty for someone special… This is a shot of all the spoons prior to sanding, filing and polishing.

Before and after shots of set 1 This set of spoons has a lovely pattern on the upper side and on the under side so I made two different rings. What do you think? Zipper Bracelet | Version | Cut Out. Sugar Bee Crafts: sewing, recipes, crafts, photo tips, and more!: Giant Picture - tutorial! I posted awhile an image that showed off the giant picture I made for my girls’ room – finally, the tutorial is here! It was so cheap – around $13 (that’s $8 for the print, and another $5 worth of an $11 foam board because you won’t need to use the whole board….) UPDATE Sept 2012: – – I LOVE this project so much that I made another one for my Dining Room – and this time I mounted it on plywood. Get details and a tutorial for mounting on plywood at this link: Giant Picture for Cheap, take 2 First, I saw on IAmMommaHearMeRoar that you could make big prints at office stores (Office Max, Office Depot) for cheap – just ask for the “Engineer’s Print”.

Build/Make/Craft/Bake: How-to: Hammered flower and leaf prints. Get out the hammer, it's how-to Tuesday and we have some botanical prints to make! I learned this technique, which makes an image using the natural dyes in plants, from my college roommate Sarah. It's great for making cards or simple botanical prints.

Actually, you'll need a little more than just a hammer. Here's a supply list: flowers or leaves to printwatercolor or other rough, acid-free paperselection of hammers (including ball-peen or cross-peen, if possible)hard work surface (cutting board, slab of wood, etc.)paper towelsscissorspentweezers or toothpicksacrylic finishing spray (optional) Start by going on a walk or visiting your garden to find leaves and flowers to work with. Then set up your work surface. Next, trim any chunky or squishy bits off of the plants and arrange them on your watercolor paper. Cover the plant with 2-3 layers of paper towels. On the paper towels, sketch the borders of the area you'll need to hammer. Peel back the paper towel to check your progress. Mega•Crafty: Woven Flower Pot- Part 2.

Today I finished my woven pot project. I haven't done much weaving but it was kind of relaxing once I got into a groove. (It was the perfect TV watching project). To recap, I started with a pot that I painted a creamy yellow. Then I used an all purpose craft glue to attach some of my favorite ribbons onto the bottom of the pot. My first idea was to weave wide ribbon around the pot too- but soon realized I couldn't get the ribbon to lay flat on the tapered shape of the pot. After experimenting with a few different ribbons and strings I settled on using jute. Which turns out made this look so much more like a basket (which is what I wanted) than my original idea. I continued weaving the jute over and under the ribbon, pulling it tight and adding a tiny dot of hot glue every so often. Marking my starting point ribbon by putting a small arrow on the bottom of the pot helped me keep track of each round.

I also kept turing the glue gun on and off so the glue was warm instead of hot. 1. And 2. Under The Table and Dreaming: Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub {for Mom} How to, Creative DIY, Crafts, Patterns & Tips - How to make a Day bed out of Doors {diy} via

Mini Hot Air Balloon Tutorial. As I mentioned in my steampunk tree post, these hot air balloon ornaments have been our most time-consuming Christmas project. Lots of trial and error, figuring things out as we went along, and, in the case of getting the baskets to hang straight, plenty of "colorful metaphors. " The good news is this isn't a holiday-specific craft: wouldn't they make an awesome mobile? Or hang one in the corner of your office for a little whimsy. To start, you'll need a plastic ornament. The most realistic shape is a tear drop, but since I couldn't find one in plastic we went with round ones and this funky dealio: At first I didn't think this shape would work, but after sticking a flag on top (which is actually the bottom) it's now my favorite. After your ornament, your next essential element is the basket. Plus, I found them on ebay for only $7.50 for 10 baskets, with free shipping from Thailand.

The lamps have held up wonderfully. As many of you requested, Marie is sharing a little tutorial here on how she made her lampshades. When she made them she was not planning on doing a tutorial for this blog, so be sure to thank her for taking the time to write all this out. Also, for those wondering…Kara will be sharing some tutorials for her book art on her blog soon. Marie is happy to do custom orders for those that prefer buying over making! * LAMPSHADE – Hobby Lobby carries self-adhesive shades & nightlights, Target has some smaller lamps for $19 that would be perfect for this project, I’ve found some lamps & shades on Craigslist.
