Six Things to Do with Leftover Crafts Supplies

Don't let those small crafts leftovers go to waste. Put paper scraps, fabric remnants, and more to good use with these cute DIY projects.

Leftover Paper Scraps: Wall Art

Cut triangles from coordinating scrapbook papers and affix to an artist's canvas with decoupage medium. You can also use painter's tape to form triangular sections and paint or gold-leaf inside the taped sections.

Leftover Lace: Mobile

Frame scraps of lace inside embroidery hoops to create a whimsical mobile. Stretch lace fabric inside the hoops and trim excess lace. For a clean look, drill a hole on each side of the embroidery hoop fastener and screw the two pices of the hoop together. Pry off the original hardware. Use white cording to hang from the ceiling.

Leftover Paint: Doodle a Coaster Set

Have a few bottles of acrylic paint with just a few drops left? Use that extra paint to dress up cork coasters. Freehand doodle, use a premade stencil, or make your own stencil from stencil acetate. We cut a herringbone pattern from stencil acetate, then pressed the stencil onto the cork and applied acrylic paint.

Leftover Fabric: Rag-Rug Doily

Piece together fabric scraps for a one-of-a-kind rag-rug doily. Cut or tear fabric scraps into thin strips. Roll them up bandana-style and coil into tight circles. Pin and loosely stitch the coils together. A single circle works well as a coaster, but a grouping can make a pretty doily.

Leftover Ribbon: Lampshade Embellishment

Take that little bit of extra ribbon and use it to embellish a plain lamp shade. Simply wrap the ribbon around the lampshade and use hot glue to secure in place. Tie the two ends of the ribbon together in a knot on the back of the shade.
