Themed Thursday - DIY

Since I’m in the midst of major preparations for my 3rd Annual Hand Crafted Hoedown for the Holidays I thought it would be fitting to do a themed Thursday on some of the fabulous and fun looking DIY projects you can purchase on etsy

I’ll start with something for the ‘green’ lover.

il_430xN_103396114 A DIY Terrarium Kit, Great CHRISTMAS GIFT, Easy to Assemble, Comes with Full Instructions from WarmCountryMeadows.

il_430xN_103517818 This DIY Felt Sushi Set from umecrafts looks like super fun!  Plus would make some really cute stocking stuffers!

il_430xN_103509704 I’ve been drooling over StudioCherie’s travel duffel bags for weeks now (since I first discovered them) and now I find that she sells patterns!  Yeah!  I can make my very own Travel Duffle Bag!


I actually browse DIY quite a bit because I love kits.  It’s a good way for me to try a new type of craft out without investing too much in tons and tons of materials.  This Complete Kit In a Box from GooseGrease to make your own family of wooden dolls has caught my eye many time…I may have to give in soon…

il_430xN_100703845 You can never go wrong with a fun earring kit like Chasing Miss Scarlet from KCRLehrStudio

il_430xN_101259253My last DIY project I would like to highlight is from ImogensGarden for her Anya ePattern.  I’m sure my girlies would just love one of these fabulous dolls!

  3. I love the felt sushi! The salmon especially looks real! ;-)

    I also think the dolls at the end are very pretty.
