Easy yarn flowers for decorations

Sometimes, techniques are the difference between complicated looking things and easy looking things. This is one of the easy crafts that gives a complicated look. Here, Jacy from Craft Life shows us how easy it is to make a flower ornament from any yarn by only using a rod, like a pen or a marker. Glue a button to it and it looks great! But we don’t want you to stop there! Why not try to apply this technique to tiny things, like toothpicks, or really big things like the stem of a great big oak tree! We truly think you will find thousands of cool experiments and design ideas with this simple technique!

How to make a paper rose

In this short tutorial, Grant Thompson from The King of Random shows us how to make a spontaneous paper rose for our loved ones. We usually don’t add really specific tutorials on our site, but this one was so cute and genius that we couldn’t resist. Imagine sitting by your date in a restaurant, fiddling with a paper napkin while talking, and suddenly produce a paper rose with stem and all, almost like a magician! And almost any thin paper will do, even a hamburger wrapper, if you’re the kind that takes your date to a fast food restaurant 😛
