This week our amazing crafters will be presenting projects based on the theme “STASH BUST.” The projects are fantastic, but we need your help in selecting a winner.
Scroll through and check out each project before casting your vote in this week’s Stash Bust challenge!
SYTYC Season 18, Week 1 Projects
Ever wanted to whip together a wreath but didn’t have a form on hand? Challenged to root into my stash, I decided I should make a craft with the mountain of embroidery hoops I had collected at thrift shops.
Project #2 – Mixed Media Bracelet
We all know the story. You see something really awesome either in a store, or online and think to yourself, “I can make that!” So you go to the store, you buy all the supplies and you make that one thing. But then you’re left with all those extra supplies. This happens to me ALL THE TIME with jewelry making supplies. In fact I have an entire box full of beads, wires, chains, charms, cords and more.
I decided that the best way to take care of this was to create a mixed media bracelet. I combined a strand of beads, a small piece of chain (from a broken necklace), a piece of leather cord and a charm to create a one of a kind statement piece that cost me $0 to make!
Project #3 – DIY Milk Glass Succulent Jars
There’s nothing like using a product that you’ve never used before. I challenged myself to dig through my craft stash to find something new and decided on using DecoArt Liquid Glass.
I applied the Liquid Glass in dots on to glass jars that I’ve been hoarding and when it was dry, I sprayed painted them white.
Project #4 – Paper Wreath
Paper is always great to have on hand, but sometimes you can have too much! Bust out a bunch of basics to create this fun fringed paper wreath.
Project #5 – Star Patchwork Doll Quilt
When first heard the theme for this week, I immediately thought of something scrappy. I decided to make a little doll quilt.
I decided on a star design using small half square triangles. Each block uses two fabrics – one print and one solid. The placement of the fabrics creates the star patter.
Project #6 – Pom Pom Wall Hanging
If there’s anything I have a stash of…it’s yarn. It’s taken over my craft closet! I’m always looking for new ways to use my supply, so I created this simple Pom Pom Wall Hanging.
It comes together quickly, especially if you already have a pom pom maker. Just choose a few colors of yarn (these were to match my daughter’s room), whip out a few pom poms during a Netflix session, and you’re 90% of the way there. Add them to a bit of latch rug canvas, tie a tassel to the center, and you’ve got yourself a fun wall hanging!
Project #7 – Patchwork Pillow
After every sewing project there’s just a bit of fabric left and you can’t throw it away! Save those scraps up and create a fun pillow.
Project #8 – Straw Storage Container
This project has been in the making for about a year. It is one of those ideas that you have, you rush to the store to buy all the stuff and then it just sits there…
We use straws every day at our house, like a lot! I use them, the kids use them. I felt like I didn’t have a good, pretty place to keep the straws. Since we use them so much I wanted to be able to leave them out on the counter in a pretty container.
I guess I have halloween on the brain already. I decided to style this with a few of my favorite halloween decorations!
Come back on Thursday to see who’s won our competition and find out who’s tutorial will be featured on Friday!
