Crafting fun for everyone!

Step-by-step instructions. Printable patterns. Updates each week.

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: Flat packaging for Easter cards and gifts!

  • Half-Moon Petal Envelope - Have fun making these delightful square and pentagon-shaped envelopes with half-moon flaps that fold like petals. Spring and Easter designs are included in the project. Use these envelopes as a gift wrap for small gifts or to store keepsakes.

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

  • Wednesday Treat: Simple Easter egg suncatchers / window clings!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a new Easter egg suncatcher pattern with dots. To make super easy suncatchers, print the new Dotted Eggs pattern on white paper and make the eggs translucent by Waxing the Paper before cutting out the suncatchers. Tack them to the window with strings threaded through a punched hole or with a small application of glue dots.

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Soft and cuddly bunnies for Easter!

    Washcloth Bunny - Whip a white washcloth into something sweeter with Aunt Annie’s quick and simple washcloth bunny project! Kids will love this little fabric rabbit that doubles as an Easter egg holder, and makes the perfect addition to any Easter basket.

    For more family, classroom or group crafts see the Friday Fun Crafts collection!

Featured last week: Cuddly chick and bunny for Easter!

  • Stuffed Felt Animals - The project features stuffed felt animals—a chick and a bunny. Beginning sewers will use the overcast stitch to assemble the animals, while more experienced sewers can improvise with stitches and embellishments of their own choosing.

  • Wednesday Treat: Shamrocks for St. Patrick's Day crafts!

    Last week's Wednesday treat was a new roundup of all crafts,  templates, and digital downloads of shamrocks and green for St. Patrick's Day. Make a card featuring shamrocks, hang a banner with shamrock flags, decorate the table or your desk with a vase of shamrocks, package gifts in a shamrock decorated box, or wrap gifts with shamrock paper. There's no limit to what you can do with Aunt Annie's shamrock goodies!

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Hang shamrock flags for some Irish fun!

    Shamrock Flag Banner - Show off your St. Patrick’s Day spirit with a shamrock banner. Make this easy paper flag banner using construction paper and the printable shamrock pattern. Hang the banner in a doorway, over the mantel, or in the window—anywhere you want to show your Irish green!
