Fall is here and pretty soon it's going to be too cold to do anything outside. So how about getting crafty inside?
The new book Lazy Crafternoon is a craft-it-yourself guide geared toward teens, allowing them to get their DIY on and host a crafting party with friends. Written by designer Stella Fields, this book guides aspiring crafters through simple steps to create more than 50 make-and-share projects that can be completed in one afternoon or less.
The crafts are divided into five categories: accessories, school supplies, decorate, celebrate, and food. Some of the projects are as simple as decorating a phone case with washi tape and decoupaging sunglasses, while others will take a little more time, such as decorating a tablet cover.
Most of the crafts require pretty simple and easy-to-find supplies. You'll just want to make sure you go out and buy the supplies beforehand, unless your craft bin is pretty well-stocked. For some of the crafts, a sewing machine will be required.
I like that this book contains a variety of projects for kids to make. I really want to make Rainbow Fruit in Glitter Cups and the Sun Tea Jars. I think those would be fun for a brunch party and/or to give as take-home party favors.
While this is geared toward kids and beginner crafters, the projects could be customized for more advanced crafters. It would also be a fun way for parents and kids to craft (and play) together!
Lazy Crafternoon is published by Capstone and is on bookstore shelves now. I received a free advance review copy for my honest review.
