From the Momfilter archives: Our new favorite craft blogger, Camilla Fabbri, just sent us in some crafts that are so cute we can’t wait to do them this weekend! Check out this fantastic faux turquoise cork necklace. It looks so great, but it’s actually super easy–she took corks, cut them up, painted them with craft […]


We’ve posted this before, just wanted to share it again! When it comes to making art with kids I stick to two schools: the “no right or wrong way” kind and the “let’s keep it simple and inexpensive.” Especially when I’m feeling bold enough to set out a crafts project during a kids party, I […]


A God’s Eye is made from sticks and raffia and my mala-inspired ornament is made from raffia and wood craft beads. To make the God’s Eye you will need two small sticks of equal length and long strands of raffia (sold by the bag at Michaels). Tie the two sticks together at their centers. Wrap […]

tattoo tabletop

neon lanyard

Okay, we know, it’s a little late to be posting about shell necklaces, but we are just getting through our Momfilter emails, and spotted this one from reader Linda Dare. “Shell necklaces are not a new idea, but the addition of neon landyards makes them pop. Great gift for lifeguards!”


I have found that so many truly inspiring craft/diy sites for kids tend to be more girl-centric, which is why I was so excited when my friend Carolyn Veith Krienke turned us on to the site All For the Boys. An aggregator and originator of inspiring projects, the site is neither overly precious nor intimidating. With […]


Here’s one more easy Valentine for you – definitely something different for the 14th… Tin foil is shaped into a heart, wrapped in yarn and given a tattered message of love. Grab a sheet of aluminum foil and shape into a heart; the bigger the sheet, the bigger the heart. Using a glue gun, tack […]
