This is my Design Wall, with a few of the Craftsy BOM displayed. I made this with the help of my husband for less than $30 and it measures 6ft x 10ft. All you need is 1 inch PVC pipe and a few corner elbows and "T" joints.  Then sew up a cover from good heavy flannel (extra wide 102"-120") and slip the pipes through casings on the back.  There is no glue involved, the whole board breaks down for travel (and washing)  The frame just leans against by fanmmm

Free! I made this editable print-practice sheet for a colleague of mine who teaches kids with dyslexia. Enter any text you want, then print. The traceable text is smaller than what you would find on similar print practice sheets for lower grades. I use these myself for high school students whose print is so bad I couldn't read it. It made a difference, and seeing the look on their face when I handed it to them was priceless! by marilyn

Fiesta themed decorations we did for my bf bridal shower. I made a bunch of the tissue paper flowers. Then we measured the door frame with twine. We used the pipe cleaners on flowers to attach to the string. Then we started tacking it to frame. About every 5 flowers we tacked.  For the sombrero I just hot glued streamers on the back.  Ole!! by rosanna

This is what I made to give to my son's daycare provider for Mother's Day.  I found the poem and then used my photo editing software to create a layout using photos from the daycare website.  (I blurred out the faces of the other children here because I do not have permission to put their photos online.  The daycare website is private.)  I printed this out as an 8X10 and put it in a frame.  It's a really nice, appropriate poem and thought it turned out well with the photo border. by bobba123

pinner said: This is my version of the ever so popular PVC spider. Like everyone else's, it is made using PVC for the legs. I used pool noodle foam to build up the joints and then covered them in duct tape. I added Great Stuff expanding foam for texture. My spider's head is made of styrofoam, covered in faux fur. It is attached to the wood base using velcro for easy disassembly and storage. The abdomen is a child's inflated punching ball, by ladylynne213

Homemade Coconut Olive Oil Lotion. Turns out more like a body butter. I made it with grapefruit essential oil and it smells really good. I think that lavender, and vanilla would also work well with the coconut. It goes on the skin oily at first, but then is absorbed quickly. Love this! by joyce

Make your own scary Jack in a Box. Make your face using a foam ball or something else of your choosing. I made the hat and clothes from felt . I placed a wooded dowel through the head and into a foam block to hold up the head. I built the box out of wood and decorated it using paint and foam skulls. The handle is made out of pvc pipe attachments. I used a hinge to attach the top so it can close when I am done. The inside has fabric attached to the walls with Velcro so that it can be removed by sally

Beehive - This was a beehive for a Grooms' Cake. The Grooms' family are beekeepers. The Bees are not edible, they were ordered from a beekeeping magazine in order to look very realistic. The cake is a 4 layer marble with buttercream then the first fondant layer. Then I made 'panels' out of the fondant for the sides, in order to make it look more like actual 'boxes'.

Homemade NOLA muffuletta Recipe. This is actually an authentic recipe, the only thing is you're supposed to scoop out the top half of the bread so it can hold the olive salad. But I don't usually even bother to do that myself. I like it with more bread and less olive salad. If you buy one from Central Grocery, though, there will be a hollow to hold the olive salad. by LiveLoveLaughMyLife
