What types of crafts do you like to do? What are some of your interests?

We need to know a bit more about you if you want us to suggest a project...

What craft items do you have on hand to use? Can you post pictures of it?

What are some of your favorite things?

What animals do you like?

What colors do you like?

Do you collect anything? For instance - some one on here likes to collect turtles... I have a niece (in-law) who likes to collect frogs.

Do you have a specific "theme" in your home? For instance, a friend of mine has her kitchen decorated in Strawberries. Everything in her kitchen has to do with strawberries - red, pictures of strawberries, strawberry shaped dishes, etc.

Answering these questions will help us give you suggestions as to what to do next. I can understand your dilemma - you have a bunch of craft supplies, but can't think of a single thing to do with them. Kind of like writer's block... If you can show us what you have to work with, it will make it much easier for us to suggest projects.

There might be some more stuff


My favorite animal (of course LOL) is Dogs.

My favorite colors are blue, pink, lime green, and purple.

I like to collect shark teeth when I visit the beach.

Hmmmm, theme........ Nope.

Do you have something you could make a bracelet or necklace with? How thin is your ribbon?

Or maybe if you have enough string, you could braid some of it to make a bracelet or necklace and somehow attach the sharks teeth, that you've already collected, to it.

Do you have an adult around who could drill tiny holes in the sharks teeth so you could string the teeth on a piece of the string or thin ribbon? Don't try drilling them yourself okay?

Maybe if you have a dentist appointment coming up he could drill holes in the teeth for you. I hear they're pretty good at that.... .

I'm looking forward to seeing what others suggest for you.

LOL I would not try to drill the holes myself!! My dad has a drill that he could drill holes through the shark teeth with. Thanks for that suggestion, I think I might try it some time this weekend when my dad is home to drill the holes.

Well, with the feathers, beads, ribbons, yarn, buttons, sequins, and maybe even some of the felt, you could make hair clips, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, or even decorate flip flops. Are you still in school? You could maybe sell some of the stuff you make to people at school.

What kind of paint? You might be able to use the paint, glitter, ribbons, buttons, felt, fabric, and maybe some of the beads and sequins to decorate t-shirts. Since you like dogs, maybe you could paint dogs on a t-shirt.

You could use the fabric to make a quilt or blanket. You could decorate it with the ribbon. If you tie a quilt (instead of sewing it), you could use some of your yarn.
