I really love these stitched doilies and think it's such a great way to upcycle these items that aren't always easy to do. These precise, symmetrical stitches are wonderful but I think random abstract stitches would make a nice contrast too. If you're looking for a good side-by-side project to do with the kids then this might be it and just think how great they will look displayed together for wall art! Found at Wholly Kao. P.S. If you don't happen to have any doilies on hand, then make a run to the thrift store!

Sometimes I see a new idea and my hands just get itchy wanting to try it so bad! This salt art is one of those ideas! After viewing an art installation by Motoi Yamamoto, Buggy and Buddy were inspired to try some salt art of their own and shared the details on their blog.
I love this homemade puzzle cube at C.R.A.F.T.! Make it for yourself or to give as gifts, the tutorial is easy to understand and simple enough with pre-cut wood cubes from the craft store, a little glue, and paint.
