While I am soaking up the rays in Florida (while wearing SPF 50 and a big floppy hat), I will leave you with 4 days worth of quick and easy crafts. You may have seen some of them multiple times. Some may be new. All with be easy, fairly quick and inexpensive ways to entertain your friends. Enjoy!
I have a secret for you. In order to get your supposedly non-crafty friends pumped about crafting, you need to start with a ridiculously easy (yet super cute) craft. It will get them all encouraged and loving paint and glue. Trust me.
I started my best buds out with a little “Home Sweet Home” art that I had been wanting to try.
- White marker (We used a paint pen.)
- Printed copy of your state
Center your copy of your state on the cardstock. Trace with the white pen. We were cursing Iowa’s river borders but probably not as much as those city workers trying to protect downtown Davenport from flooding. Wait, we were probably worse.
Add your “Home Sweet Home” saying wherever you would like. We all choose different locations. I also like that this craft uses your own handwriting. It’s like a little time capsule. Sort of. It sounds good.
Make a heart in your favorite location using glue.
Dump sprinkles on the wet glue. This was the most fun part. I just love sprinkles.
Bam. You’re done. Your friends think they are crafting masterminds.
I really like how we each did our own take on a super simple project.
Frame that baby. Super cute and simple art. Crating for the win.
