Makers — and their lucky friends — have loads of love for homemade gifts. Sure, these projects are totally gorgeous. But maybe even more importantly, they show you care way too much to just pick up something mass-produced at the store. Bring on the personal touch!
We’re all about keeping it fresh this Easter, and that means thinking WAY beyond basic dyed eggs. These beauties take cues from some of our fave crafts (painting, paper crafting and gardening) for totally original designs that are way too cool to hide.
Let it snow and let the paint flow! Freezing temps are the perfect excuse to cozy up with your brushes and create a few wintry works of art. Cocoa optional.
"Too many leftover cookies" isn't an issue we struggle with—pretty much ever—but it's been known to happen once every, oh, 365 days. Usually it's after we've gorged ourselves on holiday foods for a solid month, and we're staring at piles of cookies that are about to go stale faster than we can eat them. If this sounds like you too, don't throw out those leftovers! Here are 20 fun ways to use up your holiday extras, without just eating the same old cookies non-stop for weeks on end.

Hey Cupid, whatcha makin' this month? (Bonus points if it's chocolate!) Whether you're whipping up a gift for your SO or your BFF, we've got loads of cute ideas for showing that sweet, sweet love.
There’s A LOT to love about giant yarn. It’s super cozy, it knits up really (like really, really) fast, and it has to-die-for texture. So when Anja Johnson from Peony & Thyme wanted to show us how to use it to make a throw pillow, we were quick to jump on board.
So you wanna build a snowman?! Awesome, so do we. Except instead of snow, we're gonna use fondant. Let's get rolling ....
