Creative Pinspiration to do with the kids (vol 2)

creative pinspiration to do with the kids

In my last post I gave you some project ideas that you can do with the kids using our everyday products and inspiration from our Pinterest boards. Here's a few more ideas to inspire you using paper lanterns, clothespins, ribbon, baker's twine, lace and iron on transfers.

Paper lanterns are not just for weddings and parties, let the kids decorate their bedrooms with paper lanterns that they have decorated with paint, tissue paper, decorative paper napkins or fabric pieces.

Clothespins are available in a variety of different sizes and colours. Let the kids decorate inexpensive clothespins with paint, markers, glitter tape and more. Embellished clothespins on paper bags are a wonderful idea for a child's birthday party favor.

Make an entrance with a ribbon curtain on a door. This project takes me back to a time when I was a teenager and I begged my Mom to take the door off my bedroom closet so I could hang a funky beaded curtain in it's place.

A great way to use up ribbon and lace scraps is to create these adorable heart shaped sun catchers.

Baker's twine can be braided or used with leather and felt scraps to create funky bracelets.

String art can be created using any kind of string but I think that baker's twine would give this 1960's craft technique a modern twist. This is a great string art idea for the kids - spell out their names on long pieces of wood and hang the finished art in their bedrooms.


What little girl doesn't dream of being a princess? Make princess crowns using crochet lace ribbon or lace ribbon and fabric stiffener. You can add metallic paint, glitter and rhinestones afterwards if you want the crowns to sparkle.

Older fashionistas might like to decorate their denim shorts with lace or crochet lace ribbon. Sew the lace ribbon on by hand or give older kids a lesson on how to use the sewing machine with this basic sewing project.

Use iron on transfers on scraps of fabric or napkins and frame them in embroidery hoops. You can teach older children a few basic embroidery stitches and create a unique piece of art. Younger children can embellish the iron on transfer design using fabric markers and glitter glue instead of using needles and thread!

October is not that far away and if your child is into superhero these tee shirts are a fun idea for now and they can be reused later for Halloween! The project pin will take you to a website with the artwork for the superhero icons to use with our iron on transfers.

Note: Iron on transfers require adult supervision during the ironing stage.
