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: 3-D Halloween card or table decoration!

  • Halloween Dangler Cards - These free-standing Halloween cards with ghost or jack-o'-lantern danglers serve double-duty as a greeting card and a fun decoration for Halloween. Make several for your friends and family and some for yourself.

  • Wednesday Treat: Halloween paper ribbons for quick craft decorating!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a new printable page of 1-inch wide Halloween Ribbons with stripes, candy corn, and bats. Use these  bands to decorate Halloween Cone Hats or treat bags, and to wrap around party favors.  These ribbons/bands are a quick and easy way to decorate crafts for Halloween.

    Come back on Friday for a Friday Fun craft project!

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Make a spider for Halloween to wear on your wrist!

    Creepy-Crawly Spider Bracelet - Make a creepy, crawly spider that can wiggle and twist about with a few movements of the wrist. Traced fingers are the basis for this animated spider toy, and a paper fastener allows it to swivel around. This is a fun and easy Halloween project that is especially good for mixed-age groups of children.

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

Featured last week: Square flexagon that doubles as a card!

  • Tri-tetraflexagons - In this project, you'll make the tri-tetraflexagon which is one of the simplest and easiest to make flexagons. It looks like a simple paper square with a front and a back, but hidden inside is another side (or face) that is revealed by folding the square in half and flexing it.

  • Wednesday Treat: New dodecahedron 2021 calendar to print and make!

    Last week's Wednesday treat was a new 2021 dodecahedron calendar pattern. Make a 3-dimensional calendar for 2021 to give as a gift or set on your desk in the coming year. This 12-sided, dodecahedron is made following the instructions in the Platonic Solids craft project.

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Recycle cardboard tubes into a little box!

    Trinket Box - Use recycled materials to make this trinket box. All it takes to make this cutie are empty cardboard tubes, a cereal box and scraps of ribbon or paper. You are sure to want to make more than one!
