If you have a jig saw or scrolling saw then you can make some very beautiful crafts to give as gifts or use as decorations around your home. This is a guide about scroll saw craft ideas.
I have found a great new hobby, it is called photo cutouts. I have had a pile of pieces of acrylic taking up room in my garage. So the other day while I was moving the pile once again, I asked myself, "What can I do this stuff?". Then it hit me, I remembered a long time ago there was a store that sold photo cutouts, that is where you take a photograph glue in onto the plastic then cut out the main subject with a scroll saw.
Well I took it one step further I printed two copies of the same photograph. One on just regular paper, the other on glossy paper, I glued the plain paper photograph onto a blank piece of wood, which I found at a garage sale for $.50. Then I cut out the photograph on the glossy paper and glued it to the one on the wood blank, and presto I have pop out photograph which looks 3D.
Hope you enjoy. Oh by the way, the pitcher in the photograph is my grandson Brady McCoy from Sedan, Kansas.

This is a woodworking project. Great gift for dad for Father's Day. Just slip that list of projects into the clothespin. And don't forget to put at the end of the list something like, "There's a piece of apple pie in the fridge with your name on it!"
Use it to hold the child's artwork on the refrigerator. This is a craft that a child can help make.
An adult should cut the bear from the wood. Note: If you don't have a scroll saw, you could make this with a piece of art foam instead.
Use a toothpick dipped in the white paint to put the dot in the eyes.

This duck is sure to delight the little ones. It is a wood project, and does require either a scroll saw or a jig saw, but the smiles of those little ones is a great reward in return for time spent on the project.
