Giant Button Wall Art #DIY #Craft 12

Giant Button Wall Art #DIY #Craft #Home I saw this project on Fave Crafts years ago, and thought it would be fun to make.  I decided to add a bit more to it, and then gave it to a friend for her Sunday School room at church.  It was fun to make and would be perfect for a craft room, or any area that you […]

St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Trap #Craft 23

St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Trap #Craft #StPatricksDay I can’t believe that it’s already March.  With Easter coming so early this year, I almost forgot about our little Leprechaun friend!  I made this with my Cricut and just wanted something fun for our counter.  I figured that since these little guys will be running around in a couple of weeks, I would make up a trap to […]

How To Make a Celtic Heart Knot Keychain #Craft 15

How To Make a Celtic Heart Knot Keychain I always remember making the little keychains (GimpAction or Boondoggling) out of the plastic lacing when I was younger.  You had to alternate the colors and it seemed a bit like knitting for kids.  Does anyone else remember those?  Well, I saw something that reminded me of that, but it was more of a knotting technique with […]
