Ways to Celebrate National Craft Month

March is National Craft Month so grab that glue gun, dust off your paint brush and take a trip to the craft store because we've got a ton of inspiration coming your way.

Of course we craft year round and will find any excuse to DIY something, but National Craft Month is a cause for idea sharing.

Whether you are an expert crafter or just like to DIY on your free time, we've got a ton of ideas to help you celebrate this month. From canvas art for your home to crafts with the kids, there are so many ways to get creative. 


  • Looking for a way to brighten up your room for spring? Check out this pretty canvas art tutorial with mini butterflies to add a creative touch to any space in your home. 

  • An easy craft to do with the kids is making lollipop flowers! With a few colorful baking cups and your favorite lollipops, craft a bouquet of flowers and let the kids give them out in school or to family.

  • For an inspirational addition to your coffee table, make these chic glass stones with vinyl lettering. Place them in a pretty bowl to display when guests come over.

  • Terrariums are a great way to add a natural touch to the decor in your home, but we love these unique ones made in plastic ornaments. Fill them with pebbles, moss and floral birds or butterflies for a spring touch.

  • If glitz and glam is more your style, you will really love how your martini glasses look after a few coats of Mod Podge and glitter. Making DIY glitter stemmed glasses is super easy and guests will never know you made them yourself.

  • Give your boring old cork coasters a fresh coat of colorful paint for all of those spring parties you will be hosting! These blue coasters were sprayed with a layer of paint then stamped with a pretty swirl design for some added flair.

  • If you are hosting a party this month, why not DIY your favors? These cute cupcake favors stuffed with candy are nothing more than paper baking cups with a tissue paper covered styrofoam top. Easy and creative!

  • Decorate your mantle or add a pop of color to any space with these DIY twine balls. The process is as easy as dipping some twine in glue and wrapping it around a small balloon. Once the glue dries, pop the balloon and you've got a pretty accent piece for your decor.
