Other than knitting and sewing what would be crafts? I do woodworking ,metalworking as craft ,i do not think that those would quantify for this. Any ideas ? to expand this ie. leatherwork? wood carving? I am the guy that build stuff not the guy that thought it up.

Hi! Anybody out there can give me an idea how to construct something of this nature for a wall inside my shop. I run a hair shop for young people. I am short on budget but I need something that can create some drama or 'wows'. Any suggestions? - Laurie

Hello everybody, I was surfing the internet and I came across this beautiful idea! http://crapisgood.com/2011/11/the-animated-gif-exhibition-2/ There used to be a DIY tutorial on the website, but it's now gone, and I would love to make a gift looking like this to a friend, but I'm not very good in mechanics or electronics. Would any of you be able to explain me what I need to make something like this? Thanks a lot in advance!

We got a school festival coming up traditions, and I was charged with the duty of makying a roasted pig over an open fire. Not really, just a model. I really couldn't find a name for it, so I'll ask here. It's a pig. With a stick through it. Over fire. Then you eet it. So far, I was thinking either just make a basic shape and fill it with newspapers, or use a few bottles. Any ideas? (Sorry if the pic is inapropiate)

I have been searching online for about an hour and I can't find a website that will teach you the basics of leather working, and how to make things outta leather. All I'm finding are leather suppliers, online stores to buy leather and leather items, and I don't need any of that. So if anyone knows of a website that shows you how to's and stuff with leather, please let me know!

They market the stuff for installing around playground equipment. It's shredded tires. I got a load free. I plan to use some for backfill in a spot which was very rough to dig out. But I'll have leftovers. Can I vulcanize it into solid rubber? How? Mix with concrete to make it lightweight? Or will thermal changes cause rubber to expand /contract too much? What else could be done w/ it?

Sorry to exclude most readers, but you still may be able to watch by using proxy servers to access BBC iPlayer. Monty Don, a huge fan of traditional crafts, presents a series which celebrates six of the craft skills that built Britain and its heritage, ranging from thatching to stonemasonry. Under Monty's watchful eye, three hopefuls who are passionate about learning these trades are put through their paces by the country's leading practitioners of wood craft, metalwork, thatching, stonemasonry, weaving and stained glass. After six weeks of apprenticeship and labour, their work and achievements are judged by experts in their chosen field to see who has best mastered the craft. In the first episode, 46-year-old garden designer Charles Hooper, full-time student and single mum Sarah Charlton, 33, and 29-year-old supply teacher Tom Vaughan begin their intensive apprenticeship working with green wood, undeterred by the gruelling schedule. There are a little over 600 dedicated green wood workers in the country today, including the episode's mentor Guy Mallinson. He left a successful cabinet making business in London for a new life in Dorset, devoted to the simplicity of green wood craft. He works without power tools, screws or glue or fixings - just freshly cut or unseasoned wood and ingenious tools, such as the pole lathe and the steam bender. While Monty explores the importance of green wood in history, the trainees learn how to cleave the raw material, to turn blocks of wood on the pole lathe, and to manipulate the components fresh out of the steam bender. Then comes the final test - designing a chair and making it with no assistance. Can they pull it off? Link to the BBC Microsite.

I have been trying to create color stripes in the same manner as Mariko Kusumoto. Cotton and silk thread have not worked. I think I need a different tool to apply polyester dye or different thread. The second image is messy but it was to test the strength of the dye on the bubbles. I think my problem now is how to draw the lines using polyester dye before steaming.

We're planning to site build a craft/work table in our downstairs semi-basement space. Can you take a look at your (Non-dining table!) work table and let me know what I should add to the following list, or take into account generally? Taking into account the features I can foresee we need, I find the following desirable: Entire table surface should be something less than 48x96, so it fits in space allotted and can be made from sheet of plywood. A work surface approximately 34" high. This allows you to sit at the table or work standing up, without lower back pain from bending over excessively. A Light table feature in a corner of the table, illuminated from below to allow tracing and viewing of slides, other transparent media. An electrical receptacle in the top or edge of the table, for soldering gun, small fan, other uses that require juice while avoiding extension cord madness. A laminated top. A holder for a roll of 36" white butcher paper under one end. ~ an opening to an undermounted trashbin for easy cleaning I'm planning to pick up some Ikea storage or tool box shelves for under table storage. Thanks in advance for any and all helpful suggestions... Chris

I am make a cosplay costume and it's VERY large and it requires a foam I have been looking all over trying to find anything about it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NsQLq7EMkk At the 3 minute mark it shows this man making a Halo Elite costume leg, as you might have noticed the foam is ridged but flexible, also it's large. Where can I buy foam like that? I am assuming I can't buy it in such a massive size and that I would have to glue layers of it together, but if you know where I could buy it in a massive size that would be great too. Final part what would be the best way to cut the foam it looks like that man is using a turkey carver any other ways? Thanks to all those that can help me!

Sometime last year I received a brick that is very special to me. It came from the outside of the old technology wing of my school when they were knocking it down to make way for the new building, and I have a lot of great memories from those rooms. The only problem is...well...it's a big red brick. Its only current function is as a doorstop to my bedroom which I stub my toe on each time I enter. I'm growing sick and tired of it but I don't want to get rid of it either. I figured I might do something crafty with it instead, but unfortunately other than the creative application of paint and glue to make it a less-than-charming piece I can put on my shelf, I'm drawing a blank. Does anyone have any ideas?

I am working on an instructable decoupage project, and it's nearly finished. To make it easy, I am supplying all of the art, but it's about six or seven pages to be downloaded. I took pictures from my old Pompeii guide, and altered them plus used some copyright free clip art resized to purpose which amounts to about six or seven pages. Am not quite sure how or where to do the art pages in my instructable. They don't need to be seen separately, and the Steps pictures show what you are cutting out. But where do I put them to download? This is my first instructable, so I just need some help. I have designs for two more decoupage projects, all artwork either altered from books or copyright free. I am a professional artist and collage is my hobby, and my favorite home decor projects. The picture below is my project. Would really appreciate some help getting started. My thinking says that the very first step should be the art to download, but it's all these pictures that don't need to be seen separately.

Hi guys, I'm Anna, a college sophomore and I've always loved crafting. I could get into almost anything, sewing, ceramics, woodworking, drawing, 3-d art, cooking, etc. Anything where I get to use my hands. I come from a family that isn't that well off and have always thought that art and crafts would come second in my life, something that I'd do during my pass time. And maybe after I retire and have saved up enough money, I could open a craft store or a coffee shop filled with books and crafts - some combination of all the things I love. I'm a psychology and neuroscience major and plan to probably get a PhD and work at a hospital or at a research university. I love people. I think we're capable of so much.. I might just become a counselor - I don't know. This has been my plan for a while but sometimes - or most of the time- all I find myself is dreaming about making things. I'm just so afraid that it isn't something that I can depend on. I'm not guaranteed safety and stability. So I'm wondering, What are you guys doing with your life right now? Have you had a similar dilemma? Do you do arts and crafts just whenever you have free time? Do you do it for a living? Suggestions?? Thanks guys! Happy Holidays!

I have tried twice this year to register in the the "Instructables for Teachers" section and have not heard back. How does a person become a member of that section? If other teachers are having the same difficulty I'm having I fear Instructables is losing out on what could be a great resource. I run an after school program where kids make crafts every day. I would like to share some of their projects here but I don't want to share them under my own personal Instructables handle - kokoleo, as the work they create often comes from their own ideas and is not indicative of my personal style. Should I simply create a new handle called Club Teasdale (the name of our program) and post them separately? If I do that, then how do we become involved in the "Instructables for Teachers" section?

I'm 16, and me and my boyfriend have been going out for six months soon. I want to make him something for Christmas. He said he wants something that reminds him of me. I can make most anything if I try, 'cept for shop/wood things. I also have this little puzzle box and in it you can fit something up to the size of like a 50 cent piece. I want to maybe hide something in here as well- anyone got any ideas?

Hi! My name is Miranda and I'm trying to start up a traveling arts, crafts, and music festival that will tour America for one year. PLEASE CLICK HERE I've worked in the production industry for the past few years and I feel as though there aren't enough festivals that really showcase independent artists/crafters/musicians. I'm using Kickstarter to raise funding in order to make this happen. If you aren't familiar with Kickstarter, it's an all or nothing crowd funding site where you present a project and have people make a pledge. In return for making a pledge, you offer a reward. I'm offering some great hand made rewards and I would love it if everyone could check it out. Thank you so much.

I had recently made my own school bag out of some, of my excessive amount, of scrap fabric, took pictures of its creation, and then added it to instructables. I have minimal views and no comments. I feel that I have done something wrong in making it or showing how I made it. Can someone give me advice on how to make this better for future references. I know it is entered in the back to school contest but I am not trying to make myself win now, since I messed up. I just want to fix it for later. This is the school bag. https://www.instructables.com/id/Messenger-Bag-Style-LaptopSchool-Bag-W-Adjustabl/

Hello all, I have a wooden bed foundation and I do not want to discard it. I am looking for ideas to reuse it by converting the wood in the foundation to something usable - like small patio tea table, garden shelf etc, anything small and functional for me. Attached in an e,g. of how the foundation looks like. Would appreciate any DIY projects, instruction, pointers to reuse it. Thanks.

Each year I do a "Christmas Project" that I give to friends and family. I'm completely uninspired this year. Anyone have something great they've made? I have to be able to make it for 15 or so people and the cost is usually $5 to $10 a person (though some years I have a more expensive project so I give to fewer people). I've done velvet scarves, candles, curry mix, blacken seasoning, kleenex holders, spiced nut mixes, caramels, painted dinner napkins, bent rebar garden art, and a few more I can't think of (I wish I had step-by-step photos for all of these!). Thanks for the ideas.
