Hello, doodle follower friends!
Although the celebration of the Christmas season is over, it's still winter and a time when 'snow' thoughts still fill our minds. For some, there's been snow, but for our area it's been pretty much a brown season, overcast or just rainy so far. However, if you're feeling a bit of the cabin fever, especially with the kids, here's a variety of crafting ideas you'll all be able to enjoy together while passing the time for spring to arrive.
Play with some clay this winter season following Polyform's Extruded Snowflake Tutorial, and have some fun creating your own snowflake versions as well!
Polyform Sculpey - EZ Shape, Granite, Puffy, Premo, Eraser Clay, Glow In The Dark, Sculpey III, Bake & Bend Clay, Ultra Lite, Super Sculpey and Super Sculpey Firm, Living Doll, Translucent Liquid Sculpey has some wonderful featured projects listed to get you motivated!
Brassy Apple's Magnetic Snowman Tutorial is great 'frosty' fun for the whole winter season and your hands won't get too cold making him either!
Make a felt fabric wreath like the variety of wreaths shown on Crafts 'n Coffee blog. They are easy and inexpensive to re-create or dream up your own using this selection of inspiration!
CLEAR TOY STORAGE BAGS with drawstring closure are a perfect way to keep things organized! Using 17 gauge clear vinyl, some fabric, a little machine stitching, and a drawstring Ashley's post at Make It and Love It shows you how easy it is to make.
Looking for the newest and favorite things to do throughout the new year? At 365 Lucky Days blog I found some inspiration that I look forward to re-creating, and you may to!
on your next card or scrapbook page, or gift-giving and paper crafting projects ... the blog My Poopet's How-To Make Handmade Fabric Decorator Tape is great idea to make now while winter-bound and save-the-stash for use throughout the year!
Sometimes I just have to say to myself, "why didn't I think of this?" Ideas From The Forest blog made these snowflake teabags for a nice warm cup of tea ... a great touch to add to tea lover's gift-giving project!
