Easy Easter Basket (No Weaving)

This week's project is up a little early! It is a really simple paper Easter basket, which unlike my other basket videos, requires no weaving. It is really quick to make and uses less paper :)

Here are the patterns you'll need. If you can't print, you can make your own patterns by creating two 5"x 5" (12.7 cm) squares. On one of them, add a 1/2" (1.27 cm) tab on three of the sides.

Clover & Flower Wire Rings

A new video went up today! We're creating this 4 leaf clover ring and this flower ring.

These rings are made the same way - the flower ring just has an extra loop of wire, 
which makes it a little more difficult to make. 


  • 20 gauge wire
  • round nose pliers
  • wire cutters
  • Optional: needle nose pliers

DIY Marker Board + Chalkola Review

A new video is up! We're creating this DIY calendar board out of a picture frame.

I also had a chance to try out Chalkola's chalk markers and labels, 
and did a review of them in this video!
