So, I have a huge thing for Pinterest. Second only to Facebook, it is one of my favorite forms of social media. I follow Pinterest for a ton of things: art, clothes, quotes and CRAFTS. Pinterest is like a craft library. Today, I’m going to review the The Craft Gallery pinterest account, where I get the majority of my craft ideas.
The Craft Gallery is actually an independently owned, online discounted craft supply store, who buys and sells your old craft supplies. It’s a great place to buy and sell. I actually have sold a few things myself through this retailer and I have bought of few things too.
The Craft Gallery has 32 boards, 4,382 pins and 1,929 followers. The boards that I find the most helpful for my style of crafting are DIY, Paper Craft, Felt Craft and Buttons. There are other boards, among which I am most anxious to learn crafts from are Needlework (always wanted to try!) and Embroidery. I think both embroidery and needlework are very beautiful and I would love to try them. If anyone has any tips I’m open to suggestions.
I’ll share my favorite crafts from my favorite boards:
From Paper Craft
Brown Paper Bag Basket: This seems like a simple an easy craft which I have yet to try. It is a rather inexpensive way to store small items around your bedroom or even your craft room. IT’s related to paper weaving, only with a few more extra steps.
Sharpie Pencil on a Plate: This is my all time favorite DIY craft which I have tried. The plates (or mugs) are inexpensive and it’s very easy. I did this when I was moving into my first apartment. I also made a mug with this same technique for my boyfriend for his birthday last year. A very thoughtful gift if you’re looking for one. I wrote lyrics to a favorite song on it. There’s just so many uses for sharpie!
Easter Framed Picture Craft: This craft is an egg made out of colorful Easter colored buttons. I made this for a close relative, but I’m also going to make it for my boyfriend’s mother. It’s a cute thoughtful git and it’ll really show your crafty side… especially if you’re looking to own bonus points.
