The best list of easy DIY projects EVER.

Well, maybe that's an exaggeration. Maybe not though. You be the judge! I think all of these tutorials seem super easy, even for the person who may not be as crafty as they'd like. (even though I bet you are!).
All of these projects and gift ideas are from my 3 favorite craft blogs: MADE, Prudent Baby, and Make it and Love it. Some of them are no-sew, while the others are for beginning sewists. I hope you enjoy!
First up, we have the easy sewing projects:

Boy Pants with Knee Pads   

Boy belt
Easy hat made from a sweater!
Easiest Pillow Ever
Bean Bag Letters

And now for the crafts that don't require a stitch!
Childrens mod-podge step stool
GAK!
ribbon mobile
Framed Initial

And lastly, ideas that aren't for kids but for mama!
homemade body scrub!
no-sew flowers
mod-podge vase! (hint: you can get a vase at the dollar store!)

I hope you go crazy and make all of these. I know that I ALWAYS prefer a handmade gift as opposed to a store bought one. So, feel free to make ME all of these. I gladly accept.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more ideas.  Happy crafting!

I agree, homemade is best. I love the ribbon mobile.

I picked up the book on sewing for children yesterday. It's beautiful! I didn't buy it but looking at your makes me wish I did!

I love it! Thanks for the links. I just made some sugar scrub for a friend the other day with almond oil and cinnamon essence oil. Turned out great!

I have thought of using fabric placemats to make pillows and even bought one to do it but never thought of making it the way they showed. Its so much easier.

Hi Jenn, I am your newest follower. I found your blog because apparently we share the same last name. I was doing a google search just out of curiosity and found your site. I didn't think there were many people out there with my last name because it is german and pretty rare. I married into it, it's not my maiden name. Anyways, I blog too! golden-reflections.blogspot.com is my site! Check it out! You make some really cute stuff!!

Have a great day! God bless!!
