Craft Crazy

This Christmas I want to make the majority of the gifts I give. I've been feeling super crafty and there are a lot of easy AND cute craft ideas out there.

For my sister's birthday, I made this rag wreath with some leftover fabric from my mother-in-law's quilts and a wire wreath frame. I just tore 6-7" strips of fabric and tied them around the frame. I made the flowers out of felt and buttons (check out the tutorial here).

My Craft To-Do List:
  • I really like these cute yarn wreaths. You can make a wreath for every season/holiday/occassion!
  • Mod podging has caught my eye. Decorative letters like these look like a good place for me to start.
  • I can't sew, but these fabric headbands look easy enough and cute cute cute. (Thanks Maggie!)
Do you have any cute crafts I should check out? I'm always looking to expand my crafting repertoire. Have any favorite craft blogs? I love tutorials :)


  1. Okay, so I just found this from looking around that headband link..

    I am DEFINITELY making one for Mary, and maybe a niece and nephew for Christmas. It'll be super easy and I know I have some cheap-o photo albums laying around.

    One of my favorite craft blogs is

    Most, almost all, of her crafts are related to her two little boys!

  2. Oh my! That counting book is cute! And it will be so fun deciding on and taking the pictures.

    I made these last night:

    They're fun and easy!

    I think I'll make some of them into headbands like this:
