Five Projects to Craft Using Silk

silk flower tutorialIf you have some silk with a little bit of a polyester blend (perhaps you can find one of those early nineties-era silk shirts at the thrift store!), then you can try out this silk flower tutorial, courtesy of Young Nester via Caits Creates. It’s a no-sew project, AND you get to use fire!

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
