No Sew Fleece Pillow


Have a sports fan in the house or need a gift for one?
These No Sew Fleece Pillows are so easy you can have it done in 30 min!

No Sew Fleece Pillow @craftsavy, #craftwarehouse, #fleece, #fabric, #pillow, #sports
  • 5/8 yard of fleece fabric
  • 1 - 14" pillow form
  • Sharp scissors or rotary cutter and mat
  • Ruler

  1. Cut 2 - 20" squares from fleece. Stack the 2 pieces with wrong sides together
  2. Cut a 4"square out of each corner. I know this sounds weird, but you wont be able to tie the corners if you leave out this step.
  3. To create the tie fringe, every 1" you need to cut 4" long fringe. (see in photo) Do all 4 sides.
  4. Begin tying in a corner, using a double knot. Make sure the knots are tight! After tying 3 sides insert the pillow form and finish tying the remaining sides.
  5. Wasn't that easy?

No Sew Pumpkin


Did someone say "No Sew"?
 Yes! These pumpkins are only 6 steps and you don't need a sewing machine!
 Great project to get the kids involved with.
 Have them search for sticks to add to the tops of each pumpkin!

No Sew Pumpkin @craftsavy, #craftwarehouse, #Fall, #Fabric, #homedecor, #pumpkin
  • 16" - 18" square of fabric (a fat quarter works well too)
  • 1 cardboard tube from an empty roll of toilet paper.
  • Polyester fiber fill.
  • Piece of quilt batting the width of your toilet paper roll.
  • A few straight pins
  • Low temp glue gun
  • 2 yards of twine, ribbon, raffia or yarn
  • Embellishment items like knobby twig, leaves, berries ect...
  1. Using your low temp glue gun, glue poly fill to the TP roll.
2.  Securely wrap the batting around the fiberfill, but not too tight you want to be able to squish it to make pumpkin sections. Glue outside end into place.
3. Lay fabric square flat on your work area. Center the tp-batting roll on top of the fabric. I listed a range of 16" - 18" for your fabric square as my toilet paper rolls ranged from 4.5" to a bit over 6".

4. Bring Fabric up over the edge of the top roll and tuck inside the tube. Don't grab a lot of fabric at once, small pleats work best. If the fabric doesn't want to stay in the tube, stick a straight pin though the fabric into the cardboard tub to hold it. Continue making your way around the tube until all fabric is tucked into the tub and the fabric is relatively smooth. If it looks a bit lumpy or uneven, pull the fabric out and smooth or massage the fiberfill around and try again.

5. Center your twine, ribbon or whatever you are using under your pumpkin. Bring the ends up, cross them over on the top, down and up several times creating the pumpkin sections. I rearranged them several times before I was happy with the outcome. You can tie it off on the top or underneath. Trim off the excess or tie a bow.

6. Embellish as you wish with twigs, moss, artificial leaves, berries ect... Then glue into place using glue gun.

Wood Burning Mini Logs

Loving the look of wood burning! TIP- sketch your design in pencil before burning the design. For best results, go slowly and don't press the hot brass tip of the woodturning tool too hard into the wood

Wood Burning Mini Logs @craftsavy, #craftwarehouse, #woodburning

Here we lightly painted the top of each mini log with watered down acrylic paint,
 then wood burned over the top.

Wood Burning Log Plaques

You don't have to be an artist to wood burn...

Wood Burning Log Plaques @craftsavy, #craftwarehouse, #woodburning,
Here we added our metal log wood hook to add dimension and function to this project.
 The trick with wood burning is to know your wood, if its hard wood it will take a little longer to burn, if its pine wood it will start to burn real fast. Always press lightly because you can always go back over your project.
Tip: You can also use a stencil to create your wood burning design,
just trace stencil onto your wood surface!

We carry all shapes and sizes!

Glass Twinkle Blocks

Get ready to show your team spirit and help your team shine!
Have you discovered the magical holographic paper that looks like stars when lights shine behind it? The talented employees at our store in Medford Oregon used hollow glass blocks to attach the paper too- slide some firefly lights inside the glass blocks, added some vinyl decals to the front... and voila! Watch the magic show - when the lights are turned on they appear to be star shapes when viewed through the holographic paper. TIP- you can tint the clear glass block any color you want with Tint it Spray! 

Glass Twinkle Blocks @craftsavy #craftwarehouse #goducks


1. Tint It if you would like the background to have a translucent color like shown in the photo with the Oregon Ducks block.

2. Place Sticky Holographic paper on front of the glass block.

3. Then add a rub on vinyl or sticker of your choice.

4. Add twinkle lights to the inside of your block.

5. Turn your lights on and let it shine!

Reclaimed Bottle Firefly Chandelier

One of the hottest trends are using reclaimed wood,
glass and plastic...
with this glass bottle cutter the projects are endless
 and you too can take part in helping the environment!
Reclaimed Bottle Firefly Chandelier @craftsavy, #Kinkajou, #bottlecutter, #craftwarehouse
  1. Use a floral wire wreath and cover with large burlap ribbon, making loops and securing to floral wreath. Set aside
  2. Then remove each of the bottle bases using the bottle cutter. Lightly sand the glass till smooth.
  3. String 3-strand firefly lights inside the glass bottle.
  4. Wrap with wire around the top of the bottle 2-3 times then connect to the burlap wreath at the length you would like it to hang.
  5. Wrap jute string around the top of the bottle like shown in the photo then connect to the wreath for extra support.
  6. Repeat steps 2-5 two more times.
  7. Then at the top of the burlap wreath use jute in 3 places to hang.
Reclaimed Bottle Candle Centerpiece @craftsavy #kinkajou, #bottlecutter, #craftwarehouse
We cut the bases off the bottles, added a little sand and tea lights in a glass tray
 and placed bottles over the tea lights.
This would also look great on a long piece of reclaimed wood as a long centerpiece using multiple bottles. With battery operated tea lights you don't have to worry about the flame, just sit back and enjoy the glow!
