That is a lot of coverage! So take advantage of the momentum of the Sitcom and link up your latest project, your Etsy shop or your blog for a bit of free advertising.
I am currently out of town at a blogging convention in SLC, so I thought I’d show you a few of my top tutorials to get this Commercial break started. These are the top ten from 2012:
10. Faux Iron Gate Tutorial – create an intricate gate wall art using – what else? Toilet paper tubes!
9. Summer Jewels Quilt – This four-part series, created for beginning quilters, shows you how to create this beautiful quilt using pre-cut fabric strips called Jelly Rolls.
8. Faux Metal Filigree Frame – Use four dollar store frames and toilet paper tubes to create this elaborate frame!
7. Magnetic Clips made from Mouse Traps! Paper crafts combined with upcycling create these cute magnetic clips.
6. Faux Stained Glass – create beautiful “stained glass” using simply acrylic paints and white and clear school glue.
5. Batik fabric made from Crayons. Melting crayons to create a resist creates colorful batik look fabric.
4. Color Book Covers created by using the paper craft called “Iris Folding”. Free pattern is included in the tutorial.
3. Popsicle Stick Bracelets – made from bent popsicle sticks! A great kids craft!
2. Faux Tin Tiles created from a recycled disposable cookie sheet. Free patterns are included with the tutorial!
