Inspirational Craft Ideas

At some point, we can all use a little more inspiration in our lives – a little happier, a little more zen. As crafters, we have a unique opportunity to use our creativity and craftiness to add those necessary elements to our environment and give them to others. If you need a little inspiration for your inspirational craft project, here’s some of our favorites.


Sharpie Time

If you’ve got some drawing skill and love Sharpie markers, these unique inspirational crafts are sure to add some happy to your living space.

Lightbulb Doodles

Grab a lightbulb – any color will do and a contrasting color Sharpie. Let your child loose to doodle and draw all over the bulb. You may need to let the marker dry, so take it in sections. When it’s done, you can display it in any lamp you like. It doesn’t project the images, but it will look really cool all lit up.

Outlet Cover Kick Up

Tired of the white on white look in your rooms? Instead of painting all the walls, why not add a touch of color to the accent areas instead? Use your favorite Sharpies to create and original outlet cover camouflage. It adds a touch of color and a lot of fun to an otherwise dull living space.
