The Wednesday Post

Hello all,

The holidays are almost upon us! There's something about the cooling of the stifling desert heat (boot and sweater weather!) that gives me a taste for peppermint and pumpkin everything, but also crafting.

For today's post, I have compiled a list of geeky crafts for you to showcase during your family gatherings or to give away as heartfelt homemade gifts.

We will start with the epic geeky candles (stamped or modge podged)

In case you haven't noticed, I've got a soft spot for painted shoes. Here's another tutorial on how to paint your shoes to look like the TARDIS:

Here are some ever functional but totally fabulous comic book coasters:

For people you really don't like (or that really like Minecraft), you can make this horribly adorable creeper plushie:

I remember when plushies first became a "thing." Does anyone remember Inu Yasha? Those were the first plushies. You could pretty much only get them at Suncoast. I'm really showing my age, aren't I?

Here's the pattern for the One Scarf to Rule them All.

I could never finish a post without some inclusion of Harry Potter. Here's a how to on making a golden snitch ornament:

And last but not least, Star Wars snow flakes:

Hope these are some ideas to get your crafting started. Wednesday Post, signing off.
