#NationalCraftMonth2017. The personalizes teabags are so cute. Through the month I have been able to make quite a lot of the projects above, but the one that most popular as the rice heating pad. I made one for myself, but my husband laid claim to it. I made myself another one and two for my sister-in-law who's knees are both bad and painful. She loves them! I'm sad the contest is ending. Whether I win or not, I have truly enjoyed seeing the new crafts every day. Thank you FaveCrafts. I love this website!

#NationalCraftMonth2017. I love hats and caps. This one is adorable.

#NationalCraftMonth2017. I don't drink but these wine bottles look so elegant, I think the process would look elegant on a bottle or vase. Beautiful idea. Thank you.

#NationalCraftMonth2017. With a husband and two boys with wives, I never have a shortage of worn jeans, I made some of the jean coasters and now I can make potholders match.

#NationalCraftMonth2017. This is cute, but I do not have a green thumb with flowers. I can grow a great garden but never been lucky with flowers.

Still waiting for the 3 most recent video projects. #NationalCraftMonth2017


#NationalCraftMonth2017. We've raised cows our whole married life, 44 years now. I've collected quite a few things with cows. This mason jar cow would be great as a canister set. I could say I made them myself with directions from Favecrafts! Thanks for great ideas.

#NatonalCraftMonth2017. I have been waiting for the video on the bear lovie. It looks so cute. I want the pattern to see if I can make one!

The DIY garden markers are a great idea! We plant a garden every year. I tried just putting the seed pouch over a stick, but 2 or 3 rains they were gone. I can use these over and over. #NationalCraftMonth2017.

This clay Opal Pendant is absolutely beautiful. I would love to make one in the color of my birthstone. It would actually be a wonderful present done in that person's birthstone color. I love it! #NationalCraftMonth2017.

These Emojis would be cute to put loose change and small items in and put in your bag or purse. Everyone loves Emojis!

I'm always looking for crafts that I can make with things I have around. These are cute and perfect. I have plenty of worn out jeans. Perfect for jean coasters. #NationalCraftMonth2017.

#NationalCraftMonth2017. When I saw these I was taken back in time when my mom and grandma taught me how to make these. My mom died when I was seventeen and my grandma is gone too. I've got to try to make these again. Such precious memories. Thank you.

#NationCraftMonth2017. I really like the 10 minute tote. Nice and roomy. Gotta try it soon!

#NationCraftMonth2017. This is so cute. l can't wait to try this.

#NationalCraftMonth2017. This baby beanie is adorable. Unfortunately I only know the very basic knitting stitch. I'm going to have to learn more.

I've already made this project. It turned out so cute. Thank you for the great ideas. #NationalCraftMonth2017.

#NationalCraftMonth2017. I love making jewelry. Thanks for the video.

#NationalCraftMonth2017. I have 4 of these that I bought at a craft show. I'll be making my own now. Thanks!

I love the Baby Beanie video! Particularly useful this time of year!! #NationalCraftMonth2017

#NationalCraftMonth2017. I made a bunch of these for my crafts. I glued three together, then the next row, I glued two, the top I glued one. I turned them on their side. Now that I put in them are in clear view to grab as needed. Very useful craft!

#NationalCraftMonth2017. My boys are grown, no grandchildren yet, but I would have had fun making this with them.

couldn't see the video of the day. what a crafty month! #NationalCraftMonth2017

I just updated the page! :)

I love the rice bag, but if you have the occasional mouse they will eat them. I like to use ground corncobs from the pet store instead.

That's a great idea!

#NationalCraftMonth2017. I used to make these DIY desk organizers with my boys, and when they dries, they would put their "precious keepsakes in them.

#NationalCraftMonth2017. I love making these scarves. I start around the first of November and by Christmas I have gifts in case I need a quick present.

#NationalCraftMonth2017 cute enough. looks like dirty handprints on the towels. Great for a grandparent who doesn't see their littles often enough.

#National Craft Month 2017, Yes, i jumped ahead. I just love Opals! Thanks for adding something awesome!

#National Craft Month 2017. These hand towels would be so cute in a child's bathroom.

Just started my explorations with this clay and this looks like a good project to make next. #NationalCraftMonth2017

#NationalCraftMonth2017. I love easy crafts like the dishcloths. I can work on them at night while watching TV

Were we supposed to praise you for the wonderful videos here or on the actual video page? I like the dishcloth you are showing. #NationalCraftMonth2017

#National Craft Month 2017. So many cute craft projects. I am particularly interested in knitting and crochet ideas, and like to thank you for some wonderful fiber projects!

#National Craft Month 2017. I love making things using mason jars. They remind me of canning with my mom when I was little. This is a really cute idea that I will make. Thank you for showing so many craft ideas that we can use or give for gifts.

#National Craft Month 2017. I'm glad to see the rice filled heating pad. I suffer from tension headaches and had made one years ago out of an old sock. I gave it to my daughter-in-law and forgot about how good it worked. NOW, I KNOW HOW TO MAKE A PRETTY ONE! Will be first on my list.

great videos, but though I can watch them, I can't comment on each one.

Hi @chark! I'll be linking the videos each day as they are released for National Craft Month! You can visit each individual video and comment as the days go on. Hope that helps! -Dana from FaveCrafts

I have visited the ones that are up and it lets me write in a comment box, but when I try to post it, it goes to a message that says I can't comment. (

Hmm, okay! I'm going to send you an email. It might be easier to communicate with screenshots. ;) You'll hear from me momentarily!

The hanging dish towel pattern is a time honored project just because it's so darn useful. Please keep those great videos coming. Sometimes it's just so much easier to work through projects when you can see the workings in video. #NationalCraftMonth2017

#National Craft Month 2017. The rose keychain would be really cute as a necklace, too.

#NationalCraftMonth2017 the vintage rose keychain is really pretty!

National Craft Month 2017. The Emoji pillow is so cute, I think I'll make just the pillows together, cut out different faces and the next time the family gets together, they can decorate their own and have a gift to take home.
