The Craft Kingdom Review & GIVEAWAY

I've been exploring The Craft Kingdom: DIY and Craft Projects for Kids and Adults by Eli Maor. Her 112 page paperback contains over 90 no fuss projects for a range of ages, skill levels and interests. It's organized by topic. See the table of contents below. Each of the 13 topics has a variety of projects.  The author likes to use a mix of common craft supplies, household items and recycled materials. All projects contain a supplies list and instructions. There are lots of colorful photos and essential text. Project templates are at the rear of the book. Her brother Elad Maor did the stand out cover design. Looking for inspiration and ideas? Get your copy below!

Page 27 The Craft Kingdom.

Simply beautiful DIY gift wrap. And fragrant too. It's from the Nature Craft section. The author recommends going outside to collect raw materials. I have a gift to wrap and since it's summer I thought I'd swap out the pine for lavender cuttings and maybe a sprig of rosemary. I also have lots of kraft paper to recycle from online shopping.




In this video the author demos her toilet paper roll art project from page 54 and 55. It's from the Recycling Art section.

The Craft Kingdom is available at Amazon Canada and Amazon USA. The author has generously offered to giveaway a copy! One winner will be selected at random. Open until July 15, 2018. Canada & the USA only. Good luck!

  4. I would like to explore recycling art. Society throws so much stuff into the landfill that it would be wonderful to use our junk and treasures over again.
