Quirk Books is a publishing company that prides themselves on giving more unique books a chance. (They have a book on crafting with cat hair!) I loved their book Pom-Poms! 25 Awesomely Fluffy Projects so I was excited to get the opportunity to review another title, Craft-a-Day: 365 Simple Handmade Projects by Sarah Goldschadt. This book features 365 different projects, each small enough that you could easily make it in a day.
Each week is given a theme and there are a series of crafts in that theme. I love this because it makes this the perfect book to do with kids. It would be so much fun to do the crafts every day and also incorporate stories and books to read each week with kids. The crafts correspond with holidays and seasons, so it’s also a great learning tool for kids!
There is a huge variety of crafts and all of them are really cute! I am seriously shocked that Sarah was able to maintain the same quality and creativeness throughout the whole book, 365 projects is a lot! But she did it, she made a really great book that is a great resource for project ideas and inspiration.
The instructions are clear and concise, each project is well written and easy to follow. There are templates available for all of the projects in the book, as well as some bonus templates. One of the things I like most about this book is the potential for customization. Each project could easily be adapted to create something different and new.
Whether you want to follow along and create a project every day of the year or you’re just looking for some fun project ideas, Craft-A-Day is a great book no matter your skill level!
Craft-A-Day is published by Quirk Books and available on Amazon.
