Another great way to craft in a thrifty fashion is by using scraps: fabric scraps, paper scraps, yarn scraps; really any scraps you have lying around. Instead of throwing away these scraps, craft with them. Just because they’re scraps to begin with, doesn’t mean that they’ll look like scraps when the project is complete.
Kids’ Scrap Fabric Projects for Decorating
The fun with fabric scraps is that you can have a ton of different patterns and colors and still create a cohesive design. The mix of designs makes for a funky and fun decoration in a little kid’s room. It’s so awesome for the little ones to see their artwork displayed. It reminds them that they are worthy and that you are proud of what they’ve done. I love the Letter Scrap Craft because even toddlers can make it, which means that at two, your little one can have a hand in designing his room.
Useful Kids’ Scrap Fabric Projects
Who would’ve thought that not only can fabric scraps make fun decorative crafts, but that they can also make for useful projects? You know now! Use your scraps to fancy up some toilet paper rolls in order to clean up your craft area. Little kids work much better in a clean and organized space, so this is perfect for their arts and crafts area. They will love cleaning up when it involves the Fabric Storage Solution that they made.
Even tiny clothes can be expensive, so help cut costs by making your own wearables from fabric scraps. Dress up your neck, feet, wrists, and more when you make these adorable and easy scrap fabric projects. These crafts are perfect for elementary-aged kids up to teenagers. They’ll love sporting accessories like the Easy Patchwork Scarf that they made inexpensively and on their own.
Kids’ Scrap Fabric Projects to Keep Busy
For those times when you just need a moment to yourself, gather your fabric scraps, lay them in front of your kiddo, and give them one of these fun crafts to do. Make the doggies’ day by presenting them with a Fabric Scrap Dog Toy. Otherwise, there are games to play, gardens to plant, and dolls to dress. Get scrap happy!
