Recently retired, live for arts and crafts. Many varied interests, of course, but just like to make "stuff". Not enough time for it all, but I keep on keepin' on!
Craft Project: Tiling With Foam Craft SheetsUsing easy to cut foam craft sheets, you can make and decorate cans, boxes, lamps, etc.
St. Patrick's Day Leprechaun WreathMake a fun St. Patrick's Day wreath using construction paper and cardboard. Make a leprechaun by cutting paper as shown. Use white glue to attach all facial features to a painted "head."
Jewel Case Picture FramesInstead of tossing old CD cases into the landfill, why not make some picture frames from them? Here is a way to do that.
Halloween LampsUsing recycled cardboard, a piece of acrylic sheathing and Christmas lights I had on hand, I made a few Halloween lamps for the holiday.
Useful Items From Tree LimbsI've had a lot of bushes in the yard for years. I wanted to re-landscape some parts so the bushes had to go. The limbs of this bush are very soft and can be milled into useful items to use around the house and studio.
Recycled Tile BookendsA fun easy craft for a rainy or snowy day is making bookends from 3 or 4 inch tiles. Tiles can be new, but I have done some remodeling and have excess tiles lying about, and it's easy to find extra tiles at garage sales.
