In need of some craft projects to keep you busy this winter? Give these a try. A lot of them can be done in just a few hours with minimal supplies!
All you need is a peanut, some paint and a few other supplies to make this darling peanut hummingbird. It doubles as an ornament!
Search your junk drawers, basements and attics for items you can use to create a sign like this one. You’d be amazed at how many things resemble letters. Spell out a holiday word or a first or last name—they are perfect for gifts!
These adorable birds were made with a craft technique called felting. (In other words, take old wool sweaters, shrink them down in the washing machine and then cut and decorate them to look like birds!)
You can do so much with paint these days, especially with chalkboard paint! We created these chalkboard flower pots in only a few minutes. If you don’t want to go to the trouble of painting your own pots, check out Happy Moose Garden Art on Etsy to purchase gorgeous hand-painted pots.
Buy this handy craft kit and then make and decorate the birds at home! Look for Wild About Crafts on Etsy. The kit comes with felt, a bird pattern and some other accessories and is perfect for a family project you can do in an afternoon!
