Finger crochet is as literal as it sounds. Instead of a hook, all you use to manipulate the yarn is your fingers. That means XXL projects can be extra quick and extra chunky. These three free patterns will help even beginner crocheters get started.
Disclosure: This DIY was made in collaboration with Space Station.
Macrame is such a quick way to wrap and hang pretty much anything you can think of. (Seriously. People have done it to shoes.) Plant hangers is just the start of it. For a quick and summer-loving DIY I’ve put together this tutorial to make macrame wrapped bottle vases.
It’s the perfect upcycled touch to a summer garden party. Hanging or not, you choose!
The only catch about exploring new ideas and trying new techniques is that sometimes (if there’s no hard deadline) it’s easy for a project to just go on forever. Which isn’t always a bad thing. Some ideas are like wine and need to mature for a while before they can be best put to use. Totally cool!
Problem is when you get back to a project and have no freaking idea what you were using to make it.

Instagram is the perfect space to share crafty pics. (It’s also a fantastic excuse to take a break and style a pretty photo.)
As an eclectic crafter I’ve been collecting a list of all the crafty Instagram hashtags I’ve found inspiring, helpful, and have joined in myself. And why hide it all in a spreadsheet? This post will keep getting updated as I discover more creative corners in Instaland, so be sure to Pin and check back later. Happy crafting!
Crafts make a lot of clutter. The way you organise your tools can mean the difference between an enjoyable crafternoon, or a panicked hour of looking for your last remaining embroidery needle because you KNOW you saw it somewhere yesterday but now its gone and you have to leave ten minutes ago because your craft club meets in 15 minutes.
Cue pretty trinket boxes. It’s easy to stay organised when the storage itself calls out to your inner craft goddess. ..OK, maybe that was a bit much. Still, button trinket boxes are pretty AND practical.
Here’s how to make your own, whatever size you prefer:
