Welcome to Aunt Annie's Crafts!

Take a look around. You'll find crafting fun for children, teens and adults. A craft how-to is featured each Monday, with a special craft treat added each Wednesday, and at the end of the week it's Friday Fun with simple crafts for families, groups or classrooms.

Featured this week: Quick and easy hand puppets made of paper!

  • Simple Mitt Hand Puppets - What did one mitt say to the other? That’s up to you with this easily customized puppet made of paper. Facial features and your own custom cutouts transform a basic mitt shape into funny characters, adorable animals, monsters, and anything else you can imagine. Start with Aunt Annie's cat, rabbit and bear patterns, then try a design of your own!

    Come back on Wednesday for a new craft treat and later in the week for a new Friday Fun craft!

  • Wednesday Treat: New minimalist circles digital paper download!

    This week's Wednesday treat is the new Minimalist Circles ePaper. Use this ePaper to make Card for Him greeting cards or to make Boxes and Bags. This ePaper coordinates with the Father's Day gift bag with a minimalist circle design.

  • This Week's Friday Fun:  A firecracker that goes POP for Independence Day!

    Fourth of July Crackers - Make a Fourth of July cracker that goes POP! See how to make this novelty box that is shaped like a firecracker and makes a pop sound without any fire. Best of all, you can use it over and over again! It makes a great party favor or fun gift box. Use it for any celebration, not just the 4th.
