March is National Craft Month and what a fantastic excuse to finish those craft projects you’ve been putting off for a while now. For those of us who love to craft, it’s a great time to learn a new craft or do more of the crafts we already enjoy doing. If you don’t make crafts at all, what better time to start crafting!
Crafting is fun, relaxing and helps to de-stress your day!
Here are some fun craft ideas to get you thinking!
* Find some glitter and a simple stencil to make DIY stylish glittered stencil t-shirt for your kids!
* For St. Patrick’s Day fun with the kiddos, you can make these adorable
Racing Balloon Leprechauns together and have fun playing with them afterwards! I also love this collection of St. Patrick’s Day craft ideas on Pinterest – lots of fantastic ideas to get you crafting!
* Sign up for FREE online craft classes on Craftsy. You’ll find lots of new crafts to learn such as bag-making, sewing, quilting, even learning new knife skills in the kitchen and pizza making! So cool! 🙂
