11  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Mother's Day / Sofa Door Stop on: May 03, 2010 09:49:32 AM
Our Sofa Doorstop - is made around a brick base. First you cover the brick with batting.  Then customize the sofa by choosing a fabric in your Mom's favorite color and cover the batting with the fabric securing in place with a hot glue gun.  Attach lace around the bottom half of the brick using hot glue gun.  Next make the arms and back of the sofa by stitching a tube, stuffing it with polyester fiberfil and gluing it onto the fabric covered brick. Stitch up a couple of pillows from fabric circles and glue them and a stuffed bunny or bear on and you are done.

12  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Bunny Napkin Rings on: April 03, 2010 10:08:14 AM
These bunny napkin rings are so quick and simple you can make them at the last minute for your Easter dinner. They are made from constructions paper which is rolled and glued in place. Then you cut out the head from constructions paper draw on a face and glue it onto the tube. A pompom or cotton ball glued on the back for a tail completes the bunny.  Personalize them by writing each guest's name across the feet so everyone knows where they are sitting at the dinner table.

Pattern and complete instructions can be found here; http://craftelf.com/Craft_elf_holiday_Easter_Bunny_napkin_ring.htm

I've never tried it but I would think you could also make them from craft foam and use a hot glue gun to glue them in place.  I'll have to try that.

This is the perfect gift for the hard to buy for - especially for men!
Make a lottery ticket tree or gift card tree. Find a branch and put it in a bowl or pot of rocks and attach lottery tickets, gift cards or money to the branches.

14  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Beaded Easter Egg on: March 02, 2010 06:39:49 AM
To make this Beaded Easter Egg you basically glue beads to a Styrofoam egg. If you don't like working with hot glue you could also use pins to attach the beads to the Styrofoam. Make a variety of different patterns on the eggs by switching up the beads.

Make several eggs and place them in a basket or attach an eye-hook to the top and hang the eggs from a plant or anywhere around the house.
15  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Sock Snowmen on: December 21, 2009 11:59:36 AM
This is a great project for kids or you can make them as stocking toppers!
Check out the complete tutorial: http://craftelf.com/Winter_Sock_Snowman.htm

It would also look cute if you made a few and put them together in a basket - maybe by the fireplace.
16  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Fabric Christmas wreath on: December 20, 2009 05:02:34 PM
This is a great project for kids. It is basically made from a paper plate and scrap fabric. You can change up the fabric and make it for other holidays too.

I think this would be a great gift from a child for Christmas.

I made these "Gift" ornaments out of felt and made a support for the inside out of plastic canvas so it would keep it's nice square shape.

Here is a spin on the traditional Gingerbread House. This one is made from foam core board. The picture doesn't do it justice as the house is covered in glitter which doesn't photograph well:
