Before you make your first stitch on your sewing machine, use a test scrap of fabric first. In doing this, you will be able to check the tension and type of stitch you want for your craft project.

There are plenty of craft ideas using recycled materials. Something so simple as an old glass jar can be transformed into a lovely candle container. And don't forget all paper-mache crafts start out by using newspaper.

A great way to stop ribbon from fraying is to take a match and lightly burn the end of the cut ribbon. This will melt the ribbon, not scorch it, and will keep it from fraying.

Save the leftover and ugly bits of polymer clay to make bead cores. This is great when you are planning on covering a bead with cane slices, you don't have to waste good clay.

Remember to wash any residue out of your paint brushes so they are ready for the next craft project. You can always use a little bit of hand soap to keep them in good condition.

Take a fruit can and get your kids to help decorate it. They make great pencil holders for gift giving.

Crocheting can be a fun craft to learn to pass the time. Not only can you make scarves and hats for the winter, but more complicated things like toys as well.
