3 Things To Make This Week With Blitsy - Week of October 5th

Posted by Meghan Quinones
Need something to DIY this week? How about one of these craft project ideas?

Hey everyone! I hope all of you had a weekend full of crafting and creating. If your weekend consisted of cleaning and errand running, we are here to help you get your creative mojo back with our 3 Things to Make this Week!

We've pulled a couple of really easy projects that incorporate felt. One uses felt to create a no-maintenance plant, and the other one uses felt to create a playful little pumpkin out of an embroidery hoop! Both of these project are kid friendly, so grab your kiddos and get crafty! To mix things up a bit, there is also a super cool mixed media artwork piece that looks like it would be difficult to make, but Stephanie shows you with a paint swipe here and another one there, you too can become a mixed media artist!

If you want to see our 3 Things to Make project picks live in action, come check out our 9:30am (CST) Periscopes every Monday where we go over each project and let you, the viewer, vote on your favorite!

If you love having plants in your home or office, I have a fun plant alternative for you that requires no maintenance! That's right, this little faux wheat grass plant requires no sun or water. The reason it is so low maintenance is because the actual pieces of grass are made out of felt! Once you see how easy this plant is, you will want to make one for every room in your home!

If you are looking for easy and adorable decorations for Halloween, you need to make this felt pumpkin! Grab your little ones and get crafting! All you need is an embroidery hoop, felt, scissors, and glue! You could create an entire family of embroidery hoop pumpkins and add them to a wreath. This would be such a cute way to welcome your guests as well as your trick-or-treaters!

Have you ever dabbled in mixed media? If you haven't, Stephanie shows you just how easy it is to create your own artwork with some paint, paper, and painters tape! You could create a smaller version of artwork, or you could go big! Just think how cool it would be to have your own piece of custom artwork on display in your home.
