Embroidery Floss and Felt Color Code Chart
I do a lot of felt crafts that have stitched features. I had a hard time remembering what floss colors went best with the various felt colors. I made this color code chart that has a small sample of each felt color with its coordinating embroidery floss (and color number).
Minimizing Damage from Hot Glue Burns While Crafting
If you craft a lot, then you most likely own a hot-glue gun. If so, you are surely familiar with the nasty burns that inevitably come with using one! Hot glue is very painful and continues to burn your skin for several minutes after contact. I always keep a bowl of ice-water within easy reach on my work surface.
Buy Grab Bags of Craft Supplies
There are over 1,200 Michaels Stores - art supplies, crafts, framing around the world. At the end of each season - items that are unable to be sold may be offered in grab bags (stores may vary). Seasonal items will be stuffed in a bag and sold for only $4!
Trouble With Fray Check
I recently purchased some Fray Check for a project. I applied it according to the package directions and left it to dry. When I went back to start my project I was bummed to discover that it had caused the pen lines, from when I traced my templates, to run all over the fabric.
No More Frayed Bracelets
Every young girl loves friendship bracelets and we all know they always end up fraying and falling apart. To keep this from happening just simply grab a lighter, literally any type of lighter will work.
Clear Hook for Hanging a Wreath
I prefer to hang my holiday wreaths on the inside of our front door. The door has a large window in the middle. I don't like the look of the over the door hangers so I decided to attach a clear Command Hook (holds 3 lbs.) to the glass. Now I can hang my wreaths and the hook is practically invisible.
Using Old Inkjet Printer Ink for Crafts
Can you make craft inks from old inkjet printer ink cartridges? You can take apart old felt tip pens and put the ink bit in rubbing alcohol to make your own alcohol inks. Can you do the same with printer ink, or does it need a different solvent?
Finding Free Yarn
I'd like to know how I can get free yarn. I'm on disability and have no blankets. The only thing I can do is to make it myself. I'd love to have free yarn so I can stay warm this winter.
Using Mod Podge on Play-Doh
I made a play dough pendant and covered it with gloss mod podge. When it's completely dry, is it safe to put in the oven to harden the dough, or do I need to do that process before covering it with mod podge?
How Can I Get Fabric Donations?
I am working on a craft for animal shelters by making fleece blankets for the animals. But I am in need of fabric and I do not know who would be willing to donate fabric so I need some ideas. I am located in Lima, OH. I need your help. Who do you think would donate fleece fabric?
Protecting a Painted Denim Jacket
I painted a jean jacket using plain acrylic paints. However, I want to wear it out without it getting wrecked (by rain, or cracking, etc.). Is there something I can spray on top of it or any idea of what I can do?
Polymer Clay Crumbly
What would cause homemade polymer clay that has air dried to crumble when putting a bracelet?
