Are you looking for a craft book packed with gorgeous photos and lots of ideas? Lazy Crafternoon by Stella Fields is a wonderful choice!
Lazy Crafternoon is a craft book geared toward girls aged nine through thirteen. It contains a fair amount of craft projects. In my opinion, the projects vary from easy to challenging. Some are more advanced than others, but most appear to be manageable for this age group. There are a generous number of home dec projects and in my experience this should be a hit with teens.
Each project is laid out nicely, with a “What You’ll Need” boxed list, vibrantly colorful photo and super simple instructions. The supplies are basic and can be easily purchased at any local craft store. Many teens might already have a lot of the items at home. For example, there are many decoupage projects here and Mod Podge is listed as a supply. However, girls can easily make their own decoupage glue by mixing school glue and water together.
Many of the projects are truly unique, yet still so very simple. The yarn-wrapped jars are gorgeous! This is a wonderful way to get youngsters to recycle old jars with ordinary string, jute or crochet yarn. This is a project with a small investment, but with wonderful results. The tulle pencil toppers are pretty as well as useful, and again…simple. The painted rocks are adorable!
I could go on and on about all the great projects in this book. There really are plenty of them. There are even food-themed projects included. Personally, I’ve found enough ideas to keep me busy! The projects in this book would make wonderful activities for a teen sleepover or craft-themed birthday party. I highly recommend this book!
