10 Colorful Craft Ideas To Get You Making Now!

10 colorful craft ideas sure to inspire - tutorials to make your own bags and totes, home decor, kids toys and artwork. Something for everyone
One of my favorite parts about working online is sneaking a peek at all the fun projects my friends are making. I noticed a distinct trend of fun and colorful craft projects this week … and those colors!, you know they had me smitten with all that color. As I bookmarked, pinned, and flipped these ideas my daughter would catch a glimpse every so often and stop to ask more about what they were up to.

Colorful Craft Ideas

These were her favorite projects this week and they have each inspired us in their own way to start making and creating things on our own. Follow the links below to bookmark these tutorials or be inspired to make something completely new — either way, come back here and tell us all about it!

Origami Bag / So Very Shannon

I was doing some product design work this week and my daughter spied Shannon’s origami bag tutorial in my inspiration files. More proof I need to pull this out of my inspiration files and make it a reality!

Embroidered Baskets / Design Improvised

We’re always on the hunt for thrifty ways to decorate her room. These embroidered baskets Haeley made would certainly do the trick. I can’t wait to hit the thrift stores soon and start collecting a few.

Foil Art / Let’s Lasso The Moon

The first time I met Zina she gave me a GIANT pack of colored sharpies. I was in heaven, I love that whenever she sees rainbows she thinks of me! We’ll be using my Sharpies next week to make a few of these beautiful foil pieces created by her daughters.

You May Say I’m A Dreamer Canvas / Crafting Chicks

Nikkala and I are the same Cricut Design Star team this year. Our theme for July was “Song lyrics” and her mixed media canvas with leather tells me we are going to get along just fine!

Watercolor Artwork / Kids Stuff World

My Song Lyric submission, She Puts The Color Inside of My World, turns children’s artwork into a work of art you’ll be proud to display in your home.

Paper Flower Necklace / Hideous Dreadful Stinky

One glance at Marigold at Alt Design Summit 2 1/2 years ago and I knew we needed to become friends. Fast forward a bit, and you’ll spot her on the dance floor of a garden party looking lovely in an altered shift dress wearing incredible handmade jewelry she made herself!

Wooden Bead Dolls / Small For Big

Mari is one of those über talented friends who can do/make/design just about ANYTHING! Like these adorable dolls made from wooden beads that remind me an awful lot of her sweet daughter.

Mini Bead Bookmarks / Babble Dabble Do

Trust me when I say, you are about to fall madly in love with Ana as much as I have. This crazy cool mom, architect, furniture designer can make the most incredible and magical things out of everyday objects. I know my kids will flip for these mini hama bead / perler bead bookmarks.

Triangle Tote Bag / Sew Delicious

Roslyn won me over with this fab color palette and triangle tote bag. This looks like a bag I want to hide a good book in and go get lost for a few hours.

Paracord Vase / Meri Cherry

And last but not least is Meri. This paracord vase is the perfect summer craft for an afternoon with the girls. We have a lot of neighborhood kids running in out of my house, and I know every one of them would enjoy this take home activity. Pom pom flowers give it that extra special touch.

Mother / Daughter Craft Session Inspiration

These projects are far more than just pretty, they are also excellent ways to spend time with and connect with your kids. Some of these projects would be best suited for older kids, some are great for children of all ages and many are well-suited and fun for boys too.
