Fun new crafts to try in 2016

I love all things crafty. I consider myself Jack of all trades…master of none. Because realistically…I get bored easily. If all I did was sew I would hate it! When I painted murals on walls…I got so sick of it! I love to try new crafty things. (My nephew has recently started making knifes…and I’m going to make him teach me because it was so cool to hear how he did it!) So I thought I would do a fun round up all the new stuff I want to dabble in 2016! I would love for you leave me a comment or a link on some fun craft that you are wanting to try!  fun new crafts to try in 2016

***Arm knitting: There is so many amazing projects out there featuring arm knitting! I think it looks like such a blast with those big giant loops (braids? rows? pleats? I don’t know knitting terms! but I hopefully will at the end of 2016)

***Trinket artwork–My kids have so many random little objects, 25 cent toys, broken jewelry, weird odd and ends. and I’m hoarder and they just go in a pile. So I think turning them into some kind of fun art would be a blast!
