Here is one of my favorite craft projects. It is a Crown Sand Art kit. You get 24 crown templates. There are 6 different designs and you get four of each one. You also get packages of sand. The tops of the crowns are adhesive or you get some glue…then you color in each of the crowns using packs of colored sand. These are so much fun to make and look great when you are done. You also get lots so the fun can go on and on.

For free craft supplies, try looking in your own yard, open spaces and trails, friends’ yards, city parks, or even next to roadways. Be aware that removing items from some areas, such as national parks, is illegal.

Old greeting cards, ornaments and even buttons can really come in handy. Collect small glass jars or buy some cheap candle votive jars. Cut out pretty scenes, flowers, or shapes like stars and squiggles, and glue them to the jar. You can even collect letters to spell out your name. Gold, silver and sparkly/glittery objects look especially beautiful when the candlelight shines through the jar. Simply glue the cutouts to the jars and you’ll have beautiful, personalized candle holders for your home.

Always retract the blade after using, or cover with a protective sheath.
