Craft Projects

You don’t have to be “creative” to be a creator. You don’t need any special skills to be crafty.  You just have to want to make things.  And I know you want to make things.

50 Simple and Fun Craft Projects for the Crafty People

I made every single thing that you see on this page. If I can make them, you can, too.

But why should you?  Because we are made to make things.  There is something essentially human about taking some materials and producing something with them.  It’s in our souls, I believe.

I can promise you that everything on this page is simple (except the hand painted sharpie wind chimes, those were kind of a beast, but totally doable if you have some patience for fishing line and measuring), pretty and functional.  Otherwise, I don’t make it.  I don’t make trinkets or shelf warmers.  If I make something, it has to serve a purpose.

So have a look through and make something today!
