Craft making is always fun. There are so many different things that you can do. You get to create something and make it your own. If you are thinking about making some crafts, try making some primitive crafts. They are great for gifts or great for making things for around your house. Let’s look at some fun primitive craft project ideas.
One easy idea is to decorate your own candles. You need a double boiler or a coffee can, canning jar lid, and a sauce pan. You will also need some crayons. Put the pan on a burner, place the lid on the bottom of the pan and then place the coffee can on top of the lid. Fill up the pan with some water and make sure that there is water in the pan until you are done. You may need to keep putting water in the pan. Turn on the burner to a medium heat. Place the crayons in the coffee can and let them melt. Dip the candle into the crayon wax. Repeat as many times as you want until your candle is decorated the way you want it. You can also place tape around the candle to create a pattern.
If you are making your own candles, add some vanilla extract to the mixture that you are making the candles out of. It will give it a vanilla scent.
You can also decorate your own picture frame. You can buy one from the store or literally make your own frame. Either way, buy some paint or other materials that you want to use to decorate it with. Paint a few different colors on the picture frame and do different designs. Paint the paint in layers. Paint a basic layer and then use a foam brush to paint other colors on top. It will create a distressed and a primitive look.
You can also do a needlework craft and do a cross stitching piece. You can hang it up on the wall in a frame or set it on a dresser. It is a nice way to decorate it with a primitive feel.
Around the holidays a great craft is to make your own Christmas ornaments. You can buy pre shaped ones at your local craft store or you can make your own. Either way, use paint and glitter and any other types of materials you want. You can also make gingerbread houses. They come pre made again or you can make your own. They are a great way to decorate a table or to put around the house during the holiday season.
Whenever you make primitive crafts have fun. There are so many things you can do to create your own thing. Make each project your own and give it your own little touch. Have fun and do these projects with your kids. They will love helping you out and making your home a place that they helped to decorate.
