The DIY tote bag isn’t just fun for kids, Dorogi said, but it’s a win for parents because it gives kids a place to keep their library books together so they don’t get lost. not.

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Looking for something for the kids to do on St. Patrick’s Day? Here is a list of five fun DIYs you can try as a family.

DIY Simple Felt Four Leaf Clover Pin

This simple DIY from the “Mom Spark” blog will be a cute way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day that you can wear anytime. All you will need is felt, embroidery floss, thick paper, a pen and scissors. You will also need a bar pin if you want to attach it to your blouse or t-shirt.

Once you get that first style, you can get creative. Add glitter, different colors – whatever makes you happy. The link for this craft can be found by clicking here.

Shamrock Painted Rocks

For this DIY, you will only need stones, paint and brushes. The rest is up to you!

A video linked here from Rock Painting 101 on YouTube shows six different ways to decorate a rock with Shamrock designs. Follow these instructions or just use them as inspiration.

Clay Pot Leprechaun Hats

Interested in painting something you can keep for years? This DIY from the “That’s What Che Said” blog is sure to please everyone. This craft uses clay pots that are painted green to look like a pixie hat. The only thing you’ll need to be careful of is keeping kids away when using the Xacto Knife and Hot Glue Gun.

You can consult the link for this job by clicking here.

DIY Origami Paper Shamrock Craft

This DIY from the Design Improvised blog is adorable and perfect for the family looking for something a little more complicated to make. It’s perfect for those with older kids who still want to craft but aren’t interested in painting anything. You will need a few items to craft it, but you can find all the information you need by clicking the link here.

pixie trap

This is the most complicated (but arguably the cutest) craft on the list. It involves taking a tin can and creating a garden-like area to attract a leprechaun. The ‘Messy little Monster’ blog has all the information you’ll need to create your own pixie trap (also known as a pixie garden) and if you’re really savvy, you can even do it with real plants.

You can find a link to the crafting instructions by clicking here.

We’ll just say it: arts and crafts shouldn’t be just for kids. While your little ones may have more free time, it’s just as important that adults set aside time to let their creativity run wild, whether it’s a paint-by-number kit, a sewing project (we’re reviewing you, GH Stitch Club!) or one of these easy adult craft ideas.

When your DIY room starts calling (or, let’s face it, desperately needs me time), browse this list to find a new project that sparks joy. From quick treasure bin upgrades (caned vase) to wall-worthy DIYs (starstring mirror), there really is something for every skill level – all you need is creativity , craft supplies and patience to achieve amazing results. Our thought: If you want to take the time to create, you might as well expose your work for all to see. That’s why most of these craft projects serve double duty as home decor or homemade gifts. Doesn’t get much better than that, does it? !

1

caned vase

Woven materials, like the cane straps, are neutral in color, giving the bold florals room to shine. Cut a piece to fit any antique vase, then sew a line or cross pattern along the edges in a contrasting color of your choice. Wrap the strap around the vase and glue it with hot glue.

2

Dip Tinted Candles

Cast a custom glow with these color-blocking candles. Take regular taper candles and dip them in a mixture of colored pencil shavings and melted candle wax. Use painter’s tape for a more even stain job or enjoy the unexpected and dive in your way.

3

paper flowers

Make these flowers now, so you can enjoy them all season long. To make, fold dyed cupcake liners in half and cut out petal and fringe shapes. Next, fold a piece of floral wire in half and wrap it around the fake flower’s stamen. Poke the yarn through the center of three to four paper liners. Finish by wrapping floral tape around the base of the liners and running it all the way down the stem.

4

Star Rope Mirror

Weave jute twine into an intricate starry design to transform a standard circular mirror into a worthy feature for a wall.

5

hand dyed napkins

Bring color to any table with watercolor napkins. Once you’ve soaked the towels in water and wrung out the excess, brush on the fabric paint in small strokes from the bottom up, thinning the paint with water as you go up. Hang and let dry completely before adding them to your cutlery.

6

Woven coasters

Burlap coasters add a layer of texture and warmth to your display, while protecting your table from spills and watermarks. Give the plain burlap squares a more finished look by sewing a colored border or pulling the thread along the edges to create a fringe detail.

seven

Entrance organizer

Breathe new life into a dumpster-bound window frame by coating it in a striking pastel hue. Then find clever ways to make it functional for your daily life – adding a chalkboard for shopping lists, little hooks to hang keys and more.

8

Upholstered vessels

Literally a treasure bin craft, pretty wallpaper or wrapping paper turns empty cans into statement containers, which can be used as vases, pencil holders or candle holders. Just be sure to rinse the cans and file down the sharp edges first.

9

accordion paper flowers

Green thumb or not, you can still grow an everlasting garden. Download these templates and follow the steps below to create paper flowers in different shapes, sizes, and colors.

  1. Cut out 4 pieces of yellow or white paper (depending on the daffodil color you want) using the first template.
  2. Fold the paper in half vertically and horizontally and open again. Fold the bottom up about ¼” and fold it down.
  3. Turn the paper over and fold it all the way up until you create an accordion.
  4. Fold the accordion-folded paper in half and secure the two middle pieces with double-sided tape.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 with the remaining 3 pieces of paper.
  6. Connect the 4 with a strip of double sided tape to create a flower shape.
  7. Cut out a rectangle of orange paper approximately 2″ x 1.5″ and cut small dots on one of the long edges.
  8. Roll the rectangle loosely to form a tube and connect it with a small piece of double-sided tape, folding the bottom edge down to create a flat bottom. Glue the small cup you made in the center of the flower to finish your daffodil.
