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: A 3-dimensional birthday card!

  • Dangler Cards - Go beyond the ordinary with this novelty card featuring a dangler that twists and turns. See how easy it is to make this freestanding greeting card with a 3-dimensional opening for hanging your special dangler. Great for birthdays and other occasions!

  • Wednesday Treat: Crow, rooster, emu and peacock finger puppets to make!

    This week's Wednesday treat is instructions and pattern for making Two-Finger Puppets. Try this "handy" little project to put on a quick, fun and easy puppet show! Your fingers will become the legs of little bird puppets. Then, put on the Australian Aboriginal folktale The Medicine-man to find out how the rooster got his comb!

  • This Week's Friday Fun: Have fun with your child making a crown for Purim!

    Purim Crown - Make this royal crown decorated with six-pointed stars for Purim. It is a fun party craft for a group of children. Just a few simple supplies are needed to create this very special crown featuring Stars of David.

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

Featured last week: Make mittens from old sweatpants!

  • Mittens from Sweatpants - In this project, use old sweatpants to make mittens for kids. This is a great way to recycle the fabric from all those holey and stained sweatpants (and sweatshirts) that no one can wear anymore. This is a good project for new sewers. As an added bonus, the project includes instructions for making a scarf from sweatpants.

  • Wednesday Treat: Tips for improving your rubber stamping results!

    Last week's Wednesday treat was Rubber Stamping Tips and Instructions. Whether you are using rubber stamps to make Rubber Stamp Greeting Cards, game pieces for a Tic-Tac-Toe Travel Game or decorating a DIY Gift Bag, a clearly stamped image is a real plus!

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Make a pretend garden of flowers and/or veggies!

    Seed Catalog Garden - Make a garden in the middle of winter by cutting up seed catalogs. Cutting up the catalogs, making the garden, and playing with it will keep kids busy for hours.
