Super Simple Upcycled Fabric Garland with Kids

Last month when I was puttering around my container garden, I felt that something was missing. A garden decoration! Instead of purchasing something, I made this super easy upcycled fabric garland to add a bit of whimsy to the space. This craft was so quick and easy to make, the kids could certainly take charge of the project and make this easy and lovely garden decoration with you.

Free 3D Minecraft Paper Doll Printables

Do your kids love Minecraft? My two boys simply adore the game and we've made tons of Minecraft crafts this past year. When my eldest made a cute 3D paper Steve from Paper Pixelcraft my younger son wanted a paper doll too, but there were just too many parts for him to cut out and fold. So I ended up simplifying the doll design and leaving it blank so that he could draw in his own details. Since both boys enjoyed making these simpler Minecraft paper dolls, I figured I'd share the designs here too.

Ready to color, cut, fold, tape, and play?

DIY Pressed Flowers in a Floating Glass Frame Craft

 I love seeing the pretty flowers on our neighborhood walks and hikes, don't you? Maybe that's why I adore making pressed flower crafts. This past month we've made pressed flower wooden trays and moon and star contact paper suncatchers. And today I'll share some lovely pressed flower glass frames that the boys and I made. These came out so pretty, I think they'd be perfect to keep, or give away to someone special.

How to Make a Sculpey Clay Fairy Door

Do your kids love fairy crafts? My preschooler loves the idea of tiny magical people. And since we always have Sculpey clay lying around, I made him a very small clay fairy door. Isn't it sweet? It's now sitting at the base of our stairs and I love the idea of opening it to visit another tiny enchanted world!

Easy and Lovely Paper Strip Birds

Lately, I've been thinking of that Emily Dickinson quote, "Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all." 

These past weeks, I've felt moments of sadness, cabin fever, fear, joy, frustration, and also hope. (Oftentimes, all in the same day!) One of the good things about staying home is that the boys and I get a chance to craft and play more. It's nice having more relaxed schedules.  

Inspired by Emily Dickinson and Embossing Bird's gorgeous IG feed, the kids and I took some strips of paper and folded them into a lovely flock of colorful birds. Here's how we made these cute crafts!
