During the summer there is a lot more time for crafting, especially for your kids. I thought I’d put together the best crafts for teens and tweens that I have in my craft arsenal. The best part is that these are all fun for adults too, so you can do them together. I’m breaking these up in categories, DIY Teen and Tween room décor and Teen and Tween accessories. Another bonus is that all these tutorials are my recent projects so most of them have accompanying video tutorials. Here we go!
Teen and Tween DIY Room Décor
The first two are fun wall hangings. I have them hanging in my craft room and living room, but they are very pretty for teen rooms as well, especially if your into the boho style trend right now.
Bringing it back old school, make an easy macramé wall hanging with hoops.

This second wall hanging I great because you can play around with the color scheme. Plus, it’s so inexpensive and easy, if you want to change up the colors just start over!

Add a little personality to your outlets and switches. This is also one that is inexpensive to change. Switchplates at your local hardware store are only a couple dollars and you only need fabric scraps to make these.

These rope baskets are addicting. Buy some rope at your local hardware store and make rope baskets or bowls. You can make a trashcan or storage baskets for a bedroom or make small bowls to keep your room organized.
