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: Create a bracelet from suede scraps!

  • Suede Leather Bracelets - In this project, create a bracelet from scraps of suede leather. Cut a strip of leather, glue on motifs of a contrasting color and fasten with a Velcro® fastener. This is a good first leather craft project and requires no special leather craft tools.

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

  • This Week's Friday Fun: A recipe for homemade salt and flour clay!

    Homemade Modeling Dough Recipe - Squishable, squeezable, and versatile, this easy to make modeling dough can be crafted into paintable masterpieces or reused many times as a play dough. Add color with a few drops of food coloring and see what sculptures you can create!

Featured last week: A geometric toy for puzzle lovers!

  • Hexa-hexaflexagons - Learn how to make a really fun geometric toy—a six-sided, six-faced flexagon called a hexa-hexaflexagon! It looks like an ordinary, two-dimensional, paper hexagon with a front and a back, but hidden inside are four more sides (or faces) that become visible by flexing (folding) the paper.

  • Wednesday Treat: A flexagon pattern with four faces—a tetra-hexaflexagon!

    Last week's Wednesday Treat was a set of tetra-hexaflexagon patterns in color and black & white versions. A tetra-hexaflexagon is folded paper in a hexagonal shape with four faces (sides)—two are hidden. Can you find the hidden faces?

    It's easy to make this flexagon by folding the triangles into a straight line and then following the instructions for folding a Tri-hexaflexagon.

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Make bag puppets with imagination and clip art!

    Clip-Art Bag Puppets - More puppet fun! This time using clip-art to make paper bag puppets. A quick, easy and fun activity for families and groups.
