Simple Autumn Wreath – Quick Crafts

In case anyone missed it, I love a wreath… So it seemed only right that I got to making something I could dig out around October every year to add a little seasonal touch. With that in mind I headed to Hobbycraft, and picked up some supplies to make my own simple autumn wreath.

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

I wanted something more autumnal than Halloween based, but that worked for both aspects. It’s a nice little addition before heading into my favourite season of all!

Crafty Halloween Makes for Adults

I got to thinking this year about crafting for Halloween, for those who won’t be entertaining kids! There’s a little bit out there for the grown-ups, but some is excessively samey; and some is a little OTT for your average gathering. In this post I thought I’d share some quick crafty Halloween makes for adults; which can all be made of an evening, and will add a little whimsy to your ghoulish gathering; whether it’s a dinner party, or a movie night!

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

I will be sharing more Halloween craft ideas throughout the month; and of course there is regular seasonal and NON seasonal content throughout the year. So if you’re not already; do give the blog a follow, or subscribe by email; so you don’t miss out!

Movies and Music – A-Z Challenge 2021

If there are topics that are sort-of asides here on the blog, it is movies and music. I’m an avid movie watcher, and have always loved music! I’ve tried to incorporate both of these into my craft projects over time; as well as devoted posts here and there, in terms of favourites, and other features!

A-Z Challenge 2021

This year my A-Z Challenge theme is: The Craft Room and Beyond – A Retrospective. A look back at previous content and basically a chance to share and revisit some things from the archive. As well as exploring things that haven’t made it to the blog yet! As I have said before; if you see something that piques your interest that I don’t link to; certainly seek out the search bar, or get in touch!

Easy String Eggs – Quick Easter Crafts

Simple Table Runner – Quick Easter Crafts

When thinking about Easter this year; and how I was going to create content aimed at everyone, not just kids; I geared my thoughts more towards home, than Easter itself. One easy thing to do; for any season, is creating a simple table runner to set the tone for the season.

On the desk...

A table runner Kay, Really? Honestly, it’s true though. We don’t have much in the way of dressing for our dinner table; (which is usually home to piles of junk; and very occasionally my sewing machine). It’s mostly covered with an oilcloth tablecloth, with a bright funky diner design. But sometimes it’s nice to clear it off and actually eat there; and making a bit of a feature of it, makes it more special. And it’s EASY!

Valentines Gifts You Can Send in the Post

I was having a think this week about Happy Mail; and given the time of year, and the current situation here in the UK; it made me think of what Valentines gifts (or “galentines” etc etc) you could send in the post.

And as a bonus I’m also sharing a super cute and easy craft idea anyone can do, for almost any occasion!
