There are only a few days left until Christmas, and chances are you’ve still got some shopping to do. To help you out, we’ve put together a list of our favorite picks for crafting.  From scissors and glue to storage bins and paper these gifts are great for all ages!

This Elenco Discovery Planet Rock Tumbler is perfect for someone interested in making jewelry.  The kit from Target includes gemstones, earring wires, a necklace and more.

Stampin’ Up! has great supplies for all kinds of crafts.  This Circle Card Kit includes an exclusive Stampin’ Up! double-mounted stamp, a Classic Stampin’ Spot, and papers and embellishments that are perfect together.

Whether for card making, scrapbooking or wrapping this assortment of Paper Shaper scissors adds a little fun to any project.

This Simple Circle Cutter from Martha Stewart is a must have.  It cuts perfect circles from 1 inch to 5.5 inches in diameter in 1/16 increments. Amazing!

Amazing E-6000 Craft bonds to glass, wood, plastics, tin, metal, ceramic, cement, rubber, vinyl, leather, fabric and many more.

We just love the storage bins from Cropper Hopper.  The various compartments are perfect for storing cards, paper, scissors, glue, ribbon and more.

This craft is great to do with your kids and a fun way to personalize decorations for any occasion.  Depending on the size of letters you choose to use, you could hang it on a wall, in a doorway or even on your fridge.  We see this banner most commonly used for Happy Birthday, but with the holidays coming up I think it’d be fun to try Happy Halloween, Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah.

Supplies you will need

Letters- You can get these from the craft store in the scrapbooking section, or cut them out of a decorative paper you like. If you want a smaller banner, I would recommend using letters about 1 ½ inches high and if you want a larger banner 4 inches is a good size.

Rectangles- The size of the rectangles will depend on the size of your letters.  They need to be big enough to attach to the top of the letter with about a ½ inch of extra space on each end.  A heavy stock paper works best for these pieces.

Extra small brads

Small hole punch

String

E6000 glue

Once you have all of your letters and rectangles, lay them out to make sure everything looks the way you want.  Then, glue the top part of each letter to the rectangles.  Once the glue has dried, punch a hole on each side.

Overlap the holes of the two rectangles and secure with a brad.  Continue until you’ve spelled out the entire phrase.  Use the end holes to tie with string and the banner is ready to hang.

Pumpkin Topiary from DIY Network

Pumpkin Topiary from DIY Network

With the arrival of fall come some of my favorite things: warm cider, carmel apples and pumpkins!  Here is a list of a few things you can do with pumpkins.

Carving.  Halloween is just 4 weeks away and that’s just enough time to get what you need to carve the perfect pumpkin.  HGTV has great tips for carving.  And, if you’re like me and have a hard time figuring out what to carve, try templates.  They’re easy to use and you’re bound to have the best looking pumpkin on the block!

Pumpkin Pie.  This is an absolute must have.  I don’t care if it’s store bought or home made, pumpkin pie is the best.   Here’s a great recipe from Martha Stewart.

Pumpkin Seeds.  I absolutely love, love, love oven roasted pumpkin seeds!  Of course you can buy them from the store, but they are much tastier warm and fresh out of the oven.  Lightly salted, they are a perfect fall snack.

Decorative Topiary. The DIY network suggests creating a decorative topiary with carved pumpkins. Once carved, stack the pumpkins, glue them together so they stay put, and wrap twinkle lights around the outside to complete the look.  This clever project would be perfect next to a fireplace or entry way. Try E6000 or EcoGlue Extreme.

Do you have any favorite fall traditions?

Whether we’d like to admit it or not, summer is on its way out and fall has arrived.  It’s time to take the fun with family and friends from the backyard patio indoors.  Of course you can find the same old decorations in stores, but why not try something different this year? We’ve found some great ways you can update a room for fall in just a few easy steps!

Decorative Light-Switch Cover

I did this years ago using tissue paper, but really you could use paper or fabric.  This is a fun and easy way to add interesting color to a otherwise plain wall.  All you need is your choice of fabric, E6000 Craft and an x-acto knife.

First remove the light switch cover from the wall, the cut a piece of fabric slightly bigger than the size of the cover.  You’ll want to be able to fold some extra fabric around the edges.  Make cutouts for the switch and screw holes.  Apply E6000 Craft onto the plastic light-switch cover, then put fabric in place.  Once the glue is dry, you’re ready to put your new and improved light-switch cover back on the wall!

Your local craft store will have a large selection of fabrics to choose from, but Ikea and Marimekko are also great places to look for unique patterns.

Upholstered Headboard

This project will take a little more time, but as you can see looks absolutely amazing when complete.  The combination of flowers and animals in this red and white print stands out so well on the neutral wall.

You’ll need the following items for this project: wood for your headboard, foam, batting, fabric, knife, scissors, staple gun, flush mount and E6000 Craft .

Fun with Wall Paper

This is one of my favorite DIY projects because it can work in just about any room in your house.

It can be a great accent to your kitchen in a breakfast nook, add some flare to a bedroom or spice up your living room.

Craft stores, art stores or specialty gift shops are great places to find paper perfect to create this look.  The paper will most likely be just the right width when purchased, so no need to cut and worry about uneven lines.  Just be sure to measure the length of the wall you intend to use and purchase that length of paper.

Apply E6000 Craft to the wall, starting at the top.  Place the paper over the glued area and run your hand down as you flatten the paper, removing any air bubbles. Do this in small sections as you work down the wall.  Once you reach the floor and the end of the paper, you’re all done!  If you need to cut off excess paper at the end, I would recommend using an x-acto knife and ruler to ensure a nice straight line.

Some small, but simple changes can make indoor get-togethers even more delightful.

Enjoy!

A couple of years ago on a business trip on the other side of the country, I picked up a pair of pants on clearance at Banana Republic for less than $10. It wasn’t until several days later and when I had returned home that I realized the zipper placket was completely unstitched. The pants were inexpensive enough that I wasn’t motivated to return them and I also knew it was an easy fix. And I always had it in my mind that I would do so (despite my lack of sewing machine).

After a recent move, I was resolute to keep what was useful and donate what was not. So, armed with a tube of E6000, I determined to fix my pants. The pants were clean & dry. This part of my pants is not visible once this particular repair is done, but if you were to use this same technique to fix a hem, for example, you’d want to be more careful about potential permanent wrinkles.

I followed the directions on the tube and then left them on the counter so the glue could cure overnight.

The repair was invisible, pants washed just fine, placket intact. E6000 creates a permanent bond that will hold through washes, ironing and every day wear.

Get your own tube for repairs of all kinds, including zipper plackets, at ExcelBuyOnline or your local retailer.

This is the fourth in a series of last minute gift ideas from ’round the Web counting down to the 25th of December. All the projects can be done very quickly and require minimal supplies. Let us know if you do any of these projects. Enjoy!

From DIYAlert.com, using empty tealight holders, this last minute gift could be specifically for the holidays, a bedroom, a patio or just for fun. And homemade means that you can customize based on decor, favorite colors or time of year. Could be a great project to do with your kiddos, just be careful because you are working with metal. As DIYAlert suggests, you might wear gloves to protect your hands.

Supplies:

  • One string of mini-lights. White light is nice, because it allows you to see all the
    colors in your finished collars.
  • Metal cups from used-up tealights. You’ll need one for every light there is on your
    light string.
  • Sharpie marker.
  • Scissors. These should not be your expensive scissors, by the way.
  • Paper hole punch. You need one that makes a hole at least 3/8” diameter.
    An old-fashioned paper punch will work better than a craft-punch for this project. And your punch should be pretty heavy-duty.
  • Glue. Use a glue for non-porous surfaces, like E6000.
  • Shiny things, such as glitter, flat-backed gems, beads, sequins, etc.

This is a great recycling project. You could also use EcoGlue in place of E6000. It’s eco-friendly. According to Dollar Store Crafts, JoAnn Fabrics has tea lights – 100 for $5. For all the instructions, visit DIYAlert.

This is the second in a series of last minute gift ideas from ’round the Web counting down to the 25th of December. All the projects can be done very quickly and require minimal supplies. Let us know if you do any of these projects, we’d love to see your pictures. Enjoy!

Our second last minute gift idea comes from the Big Ass Book of Crafts by our friend Mark Montano (and it’s also our December Craft of the Month).

We were thrilled to learn recently that celebrity crafter and designer Mark Montano is a fan of Eclectic Products stuff. And equally thrilled to learn that he features GOOP and E-6000 throughout his new book, The Big-Ass Book of Crafts.

The crafts, for various skill levels are fun and Mark’s sense of humor keeps it interesting. We’re hoping to share some of the book’s crafts from our resident crafty girl, Juliana. But you should go buy your own copy!
