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: Make a 3D trapeze act for your circus!

  • 3D Paper Circus Trapeze Act - In this project, you will make circus trapeze performers and a trapeze. The craft includes printable patterns for four trapeze artists and instructions for making a lightweight trapeze suitable for hard or carpet surfaces. This is the fourth of four craft projects for the Under the Big Top craft series.

  • Wednesday Treat: New Halloween cutouts pattern!

    This week's Wednesday Treat is a new Halloween Cutouts pattern for you to download and print. Use the spider, jack-o'-lantern and bat cutouts to decorate windows, bulletin boards, or for a spooky party. See the Halloween Crafts index for more Halloween crafting fun!

    Come back on Friday for a new Friday Fun craft project!

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Put your fingers in the paint and have fun!

    Finger Painting - This craft project goes over the basic steps for doing finger painting and gives tips to enhance your finger paint masterpieces. The kids (and grown-ups, too) will have great fun smearing paint on paper and creating fanciful pictures.

Featured last week: Make a 3D circus lion and lion tamer!

  • 3D Paper Circus Lion and Lion Tamer - In this project, you will make a circus lion and circus lion tamer. The craft includes printable patterns for two sizes of lions and male and female lion tamers. Make up all the patterns for a complete circus lion act! This is the third of four craft projects for the Under the Big Top craft series.

  • Wednesday Treat: New circus-theme digital paper download!

    Last week's Wednesday Treat was a new Circus Diamond and Arrow digital paper to download and print. Use this ePaper to decorate accessories for the crafts in the Under the Big Top series, in handmade greeting cards, or any paper craft. This ePaper coordinates with the Circus Paper Ribbons digital download.

  •  Last Week's Friday Fun: Recycle artwork and drawings into bookmarks!

    Artwork Bookmarks - These bookmarks are simply made from artwork that you are willing to cut up and two pieces of clear contact paper. This is a great way to recycle your less-than-perfect artwork or preserve your child's treasured drawings.
