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.

Ok. It’s not really a homemade bug dope. It’s more like a DIY salve or DIY balm. It’s super easy to make, it’s natural, and it works! [Read more…]
This garden gate collection was created because my garden needs a gate. This past summer we used sawhorses to keep out deer and moose. Prior to that I did have a gate that we had made from branches. It was pretty cool and worked, but it rotted. I can’t do another summer with sawhorses for a gate. Ok. I can, but I don’t want to.I live in the woods and want a gate preferably that we make. I love the twig and branch gates.
Do you guys remember our giant DIY ice marbles that we made last winter? They are so easy to make and they add such a fun touch to our railing out front. I can’t wait for the weather to get cold enough to do it again. BUT THIS TIME I’m going to have more purpose for them and turn some of them in to bird feeders! What a great idea from Twig and Toadstool! [Read more…]
Chaga grows on birch trees near my home in northern Maine and is not very attractive, but the health benefits of chaga are extremely attractive. I have heard it said that we will find in nature what we need to maintain or heal our health. I’ve also heard that the things that heal us resemble what they’re curing. [Read more…]
We’re so excited about this Thanksgiving Food Crafts Collection! Before we get to that, let’s have a little history lesson. An EASY history lesson!

Today we celebrate it in remembrance. It’s a fun time and these treats and crafts below are a great way to show our spirit! I love some of these as Thanksgiving party foods or decorations and they are super easy to make! Take a look below and enjoy! From Sisters Know Best to you and yours, Happy Thanksgiving! [Read more…]
Candy corn are the rage this Halloween season… at least in my household. We love Halloween and we love to decorate! Why not do it with one of favorite Halloween treats? This Candy Corn Mason Jar Craft is simple and affordable to make.
These Halloween Party Decorations will be super spooky and fun to make! First things first – do NOT eat the trees! There is a wire in them. (Gulp!) Everything else is edible. These are yummy and adorable Halloween centerpieces! The original post says they are not edible; however, it’s because of the black wire they used. Instead of black wire, I twisted my trees together and then used black electrical tape to tie it together. [Read more…]
Chris and I have been so excited about the fall foliage and making crafts with beautiful leaves. We challenged each other to come up with a new project to top last year’s Nicole Duke’s Leaf Roses. My project is a fall leaf candle holder using a canning jar, Mod Podge, a paintbrush, and leaves.

We had such a great response from the post on our Facebook page about Clothespin Bags, we thought we better look in to them a little closer. These easy-to-make clothespin bags remind us of our grandparents’ house and camp and simpler times. When we go to Prince Edward Island there is no dryer. Up there you don’t need a dryer! It’s so windy, your clothes dry in a few hours out on the line. Because of your response on Facebook it made me push Emily to make one. She’s the crafty one. Below is Emily’s instruction and design. Go Em! [Read more…]
I had a visitor last week and wanted to have a backup plan in case of rainy weather. I was scrolling through Pinterest – a favorite thing of mine to do – and saw DIY paper lanterns. It had all the criteria – easy and affordable! The project was a huge success for us and the possibility of designs is limitless! I think doing a bunch of balloon designs for an evening birthday bash would be awesome! Wild explosions for the 4th of July! Dragonflies! Animals! ooooohhhh! [Read more…]
