CraftSanity Kids Father’s Day Crafts Video Tutorial: Recycled Magnets, Art Embellished Cookies and Popsicle Stick Frames

by jennifer

Father’s Day is coming up and my daughters are very excited. Abby has been squirreling away little handmade gifts for weeks and Amelia is on a magnets-for-every-occasion kick, so I thought it would be great to team up with my daughters for this week’s Father’s Day craft TV segment on “Take Five.”

First off, we LOVE this free-standing popsicle stick frame. I found the tutorial on the DIYfamily blog. Abby drew a crayon drawing to put in the frame and then colored the frame with markers. These frames can be embellished with wood-burned text, paint or stain to celebrate Dad on Father’s Day. This frame is great because it’s designed to stand up on a desk or shelf. Download pdf instructions to make your own frame here.

We like to bake, but you don’t have to to enjoy making these super fast Father’s Day cookies. We spread white Wilton ready-to-use cookie icing on vanilla wafers and animal crackers and let it harden for 45 minutes. (For best results, let the frosting harden overnight.) Then we used FoodWriter edible color markers to decorate the cookies with text and random designs.

This last project is Amelia’s favorite. I was given a box of of business card size magnets a while back. You can use any business card sized magnet for this project. First cut a piece of paper the same size as the magnet. Draw a picture or write a messageĀ  for Dad on the paper. Paint one coat of decoupage medium on the front of the magnet. Use it like paste to secure your artwork to the front of the magnet. Cover each magnet with two to three more coats of decoupage medium.

You can buy magnetic sheets from many craft supply stores, but recycling is so much cheaper. If you’re local and you don’t have any magnets on hand to do this project, come and visit the CraftSanity booth (#6) at the Fulton Street Artisans Market from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Sunday (June 13.) The girls and I are planning to host an art magnet make-it, take-it project for kids at the market, so be sure to stop by and say “hello.” (I will be selling CraftSanity weaving looms in all sizes, too, so come on out if you want to learn to weave on one of my looms.)

Here’s the video from today’s TV segment:
