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 turkey centerpiece!

  • 3D Stuffed Paper Turkey - In this project, you will make a three-dimensional turkey that stands on its own feet. It is made of paper and stuffed with facial tissue. The printable patterns come in two sizes, and in black-and-white or color. The turkeys make nice Thanksgiving decorations, and several smaller turkeys can be made into a mobile.

  • Wednesday Treat: Download Paper Ribbons for Thanksgiving and  fall!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a new printable digital paper with Thanksgiving Paper Ribbons. Use these paper ribbons to make quick napkin rings, in handmade greeting cards, or in scrapbooking or other paper crafts. This ePaper coordinates with the Thanksgiving ePapers.

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Easy felt ornaments made special by you!

    Cookie Cutter Felt Ornaments - Simple and durable ornaments can be made with cookie cutters, felt, and imagination. No sewing is required! The cookie cutters are used as templates for making the ornaments—or, use Aunt Annie's printable pattern with Christmas-themed templates.

Featured last week: Do-it-yourself game board for Thanksgiving!

  • Turkey Trot - Here's a race game that the whole family can make together and then play! It's great for after Thanksgiving dinner fun or anytime the family gets together. The project also includes patterns and tips for creating game boards of your own invention for other holidays or themes.

  • Wednesday Treat: Design-your-own game boards!

    Last week's Wednesday treat was a new printable blank game board in red and green for designing your own Goose-like game for Christmas. Use the blank patterns and tips in the Turkey Trot project to make a game board for a race game of your own invention! You can make a game for just about any theme, idea or event. A blank game board and set of stickers makes it super easy to create a new race game.

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Make tiny turkey game pieces or figurines!

    Miniature Turkeys - In this project, you'll make miniature turkeys modeled from Homemade Modeling Dough or air-dry clay to use as playing pieces for the game of Turkey Trot. Or make the turkeys for a diorama, to decorate for Thanksgiving, or just for fun!
