Top Ten Favorite Crafts for 2017

Hi everyone! It's that time of year when we look back to see what projects were among the most popular and do a round-up of the favorites.
I've always tried to create projects that are inexpensive and easy to make. Most were repurposed, recycled, upcycled, projects that highlighted using everyday items like bottles, ribbon, paper, wire, natural fibers and even hot glue.

Here's a look back at the favorites or most viewed starting with #10. I hope you are inspired to try a few! Please click on each link for the full easy to follow tutorial:

# 9 - Dollar Store Fall Leaf Handcrafted Pumpkin

#8 - Decorative Ribbon Easter Egg DIY

#7 - Hot Glue Shamrock Brooches

#6 - Searching for Treats - A Bunny Butt Craft

#2 - Decorate a Thrift Store Find with DIY Wire Flowers

#1 - Large Decorative Borax Crystals

As we say goodbye to 2017, I would like to thank each and everyone of you in this wonderful blogging community for your interest, encouragement and support in my crafting adventures.  I appreciate all of you and wish you the very best in the coming year! Have a great 2018! It's going to be amazing!

Thank You!
