After all the chaos and planning that goes into Easter, we thought that it would be great to feature a website on Monday Makes that’s full of simple crafts that don’t require too much work. C.R.A.F.T. (Creating Really Awesome Fun Things) is a site authored by Jamie, a woman that is all about making the most of what you have, so you can expect lots of crafts featuring products you probably have around the house!
First of all, we absolutely love how clean and simple, yet colourful the design of the website. It makes it very appealing for people of all ages and easy to navigate, so anyone could have a look around! There are buttons at the top of the page that clearly outline where they will take you when clicked, so it’s impossible to get lost. Not only is it the crafts that drew us to this site, but also this lack of complication when it comes to actually exploring the site – it’s just so user friendly!
But as this is a Monday Makes, let’s have a look at the type of things Jamie likes to make. When you click on the C.R.A.F.T.s button, you’re taken to a page where you will see several categories of crafts, like kids crafts, Christmas crafts and crafts that only take an hour. By clicking the ‘view more’ button underneath a category, you can see tons of crafts relating to that category! We love this adorable cardboard box train costume in the DIY costume section, or these little dinosaur planters that would be ideal for adding life to a space.
There really is something for everyone on this site. There’s plenty of paper crafts and crafts that use natural materials like stone and wood, or if you want something more traditional, there are cross stitching, sewing and painting! It’s a real feast for the eyes and an ideal site to use if you’re looking to try something new. As Jamie has two children, there are also plenty of crafts to keeps kids entertained!
We love Jamie’s style and her positive vibes, and we think you will too! If you’d like to see more from C.R.A.F.T., you can take a look at her Facebook or her Twitter. She also has a book called, you guessed it, C.R.A.F.T., which you can check out by clicking here.
