Peanuts Movie Craft: Flying Ace Goggles and Scarf

The Peanuts Movie comes out in theaters today! I had a chance to take my family to see it earlier this week, and we really enjoyed it. All the classic story lines those of us who grew up reading Peanuts in the Sunday Comics expect to see. Lucy’s therapy, Charlie Brown’s sincere attempts, Kites, and of course Snoopy the Flying Ace, chasing after the Red Baron.

My Three-year-old LOVED the scenes where Snoopy, dressed as the Flying Ace, flew his doghouse as he chased down the Red Baron. So, I created a fun Peanuts Movie craft using the 3D goggles from the theater, and a few other supplies. This way, he can dress up as the Flying Ace, and chase after his own Red Baron!

Scarf Turned Simple Top

I love simple sewing projects. Like this lovely, flowing top that Petro over at Creative Homemaking whipped up, using a scarf! She was able to use a lot of the existing construction of the scarf to make her top, which certainly looks like it should take more than 30 minutes to make! Check out her step-by-step over on her Creative Homemaking site.

15 Minute No Knit Scarf

15 Minute No Knit Scarf

I’m “yarn challenged”. I don’t knit, and I don’t crochet. So I rarely head over to the yarn aisles of the craft store. But on a recent trip, I had my mom with me. She does knit and crochet (further proof that I was a difficult child – my mom can practically crochet in her sleep, but I don’t even know how to hold a hook). My mom was looking for some yarn for a crochet project, and I was wandering along the aisle, fondling the soft yarn, the fluffy yarn, and checking out some of the new, unusual yarns.

I came across this yarn from Lion Brand Yarn. It is designed for people like me. Seriously. Awesome stuff.

pre-knit yarn I made a scarf with a single skein of this yarn, in 15 minutes. With no hooks, and no needles. The basic directions are right there on the package, I just added a little to it.

Very important: Before you start, take off any rings, bracelets, or anything that will snag. Then thread one end of the yarn, and threading it over your non-dominant hand. I’m right handed, so I threaded it over my left hand.

cover arm with yarn

Once you have it all threaded, grab the end by your elbow, and pull it to your hand so that the two ends meet, and the previously elbow-end meets with the hand end.

make ends meet

Grabbing the now doubled end, pull it off your arm, slowly, matching up the two layers to make one thicker piece.

pull over no knit scarf

That’s where the instructions on the packaging end. I went a little¬† further. I repeated the process,¬† making the scarf even thicker. This makes the scarf half as long as well, which was perfect for me.

The last little modification was with the end. After threading everything through twice, one of my ends was a little ragged.

end hanging out

I tucked the excess end up into the body of the scarf, then tied a knot in the end.

And just like that, a cozy scarf for this cool weather!

5 Minute Scarf

With fall weather comes fall clothes… and fall fashion! Even if you can’t afford to update your whole wardrobe this fall (and with as much as the average crafter spends on supplies, that’s probably the case – ha!), you can add touches of fresh color and style with a simple 5-minute scarf like this one. No need to know how to do something fancy – like adding a roll hem, or use a serger. Just a few quick stitches on the sewing machine, and you’ll have whipped up this fast scarf!

For each animal chocolate holder you need 12×12″ scrabook paper, a round chocolate (I used Lindt’s chocolates), and hot glue. Each Silhouette cut file has one or more of the animals on it, already sized and ready to go. Just cut, and glue together while holding your chocolate in place!

This frog is adorable – great for a princess party (anyone want to kiss the chocolate frog?), or make them with brown construction paper as “chocolate frogs” for a Harry Potter themed party!

One side of this little penguin actually has a beak that you can fold out! He is super cute, and great for any winter-themed party. Dress him up with a scrap of felt as a scarf for some extra dimension (and cuteness!)… you can even glue on some googly eyes to make him a little more crafty!

This horse chocolate holder can be whatever you want – call him a “Mustang” to use him at a school function with a Mustang mascot. Use him for a cowboy themed event – or for any horse lover!

Simple Holiday Gift Box

The Holidays are coming! Someone, somewhere, has an obnoxious countdown calendar telling us how many days there are until Christmas. Or an even more annoying calendar counting down the weekends until Christmas.

Hot Glue (I used the awesome PINE SCENTED hot glue. This is awesomesauce)
Scissors

cut ribbon to length

Remove the lid from the box. Glue the ends of the ribbon around the sides and into the inside of the box. You’ll want the ribbons off-center so that there is plenty of room for the decoration on top.

glue ribbon to lid

Be sure not to use too much glue on the inside, you still want the box to close easily.

Pull off a couple of the berry sprigs.

pull off pieces

Wrap the pieces around the ends of the pine sprigs to make a little bundle.

secure together

Tie ribbon to the end of the bundle.

tie bow
