The end of March is here!

by Paula on March 31, 2011


And that means the official end of National Craft Month.  Boo.

But, that doesn’t mean you have to stop crafting!

I had so much fun looking for creative activities when I first posted about National Craft Month that I thought I’d end the month with some fun crafting ideas too!

Here are just a few of my favorites!

Since I *need* to work on the revamping of Ariel’s room, this zebra lamp idea from Bon Temps Beignet is right up my alley.  She really is craving a “wild child” look and I think we can do it with this project.  Only we’ll be using hot pink and black, I think.  She is a tween, ya know.

No, this Easter egg wreath from Mrs. Sassy Crafter won’t go in the tween’s room, but she will think it’s a lot of fun because it has tons of glitter on it.  Me, I’m thinking I have enough old Easter eggs that a few dozen used on this project won’t be missed.  What do you think?  (yes, I promise, if I actually *do* make it, I’ll post pictures.  If you make it, send me pics.  Deal?)

Since we’re redoing Ariel’s room, I think that some decorative carpet squares, as featured on Skip to my Lou, might be fun.  And, I’m thinking we could make some for Mother’s Day gifts for the grandmas.  Hmmmm.  I don’t think our local stores will give us carpet squares, but I think we could buy plain, flat texture mats and decorate those.  I’ll keep you updated on how this works out.

Of Pinks and Fairy Tales created this beautiful Sunburst Disk Mirror and I’m thinking Ariel will LOVE it.  Since we have plaster walls and King Triton doesn’t believe in putting holes in the plaster, everything on our walls is really hanging from picture railing.  I think this craft would be perfect for our needs, since it could be made of lightweight materials and customized however Ariel wants it.  What do you think?

So many crafts, only one month to celebrate.

Oh, there’s no way to cram all the crafty wonderfulness into one month!  Go forth and create all year long!!  Let me know what you make and if you do it for your tween or with your tween!  Have fun!!
