The Editors of FaveCrafts
Easter Egg Mobile (pg. 10) - This wonderful project to do with kids this Easter comes to us from the ever-creative Mama King of 4 Crazy Kings. Have the kids decorate egg shapes cut from clear contact paper to create Easter mobiles that let the sun shine through. Use whatever collage materials you have on hand such as sequins, glitter, paint and more.
Recycled Crayons (pg. 12) - This great, guest tutorial for how to recycle crayon bits into new crayons comes to us compliments of Sara of Kitty Baby Love. You can also find the little, kitty-shaped crayons (perfect for child-sized hands) for sale in her Etsy shop.
Scrap Yarn Crochet Slippers (pg. 16) - These easy slippers, perfect for beginners are very warm and very comfortable. I've been making them for years, and have many family and friends that request a pair at least once a year if not more. These slippers can be made so that they cover only the ankle or past the knee and any length between. Senior citizens like the warm up to just below their knees.
Arrow Stitch Crochet Afghan (pg. 19) - The simple arrow stitch in the crochet afghan pattern creates a lovely addition to any home. The rose and natural yarns in this afghan create a lovely palate of colors, but you can use any worsted weight yarn.

10 Things to Do With Old Wine Bottles (pg. 26) - Instead of tossing those old wine bottles, use them in a variety of wine bottle craft projects. You can create lamps, decorative vases and hurricanes from old wine bottles and they make great gifts. Don’t forget to save the corks to create a homemade cork board.
Modern Wall Art (pg. 40) - All you need to make your own modern wall art are a few sheets of STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam and your favorite patterned scrapbook paper. You can mix and match whatever patterns and paper designs you like, your guests will be shocked that this project was so easy!
