2016 Top 10 Crafting Favorites - What's Old is New Again

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by!  It's that time of year when most of us look back to see what projects were liked best and do a round-up of the favorites.
My philosophy when making crafts has always been, "there are no new crafts - just new ways to make them."  In other words, revamping old trends.  And many of my most popular craft projects in 2016 were just that.  I've always tried to create projects that are inexpensive and easy to make. They were mostly repurposed, recycled, upcycled, green projects that highlighted everyday items like cans, ribbon, foam, cardboard, paper, and natural fibers. 
Here's a look back at the favorites. Click on each link for the full tutorial:

1.  Recycled Soda/Beer Can Candle Holder

2.  Handcrafted Forever Spring Crocuses


Hope you are inspired to repurpose the old into something new!

As we say goodbye to 2016, a big THANK YOU to this wonderful community for your interest, encouragement and support in my crafting adventures.  I'm so looking forward to 2017 .  .  .  it's going to be an awesome year!

Best wishes and blessings to you in the New Year!
