It’s Elementary

As I was shopping the other day, I saw Free People’s logo and remembered making something like this in elementary school.  The crafts we did as children are not only easy (I mean, they are for kids), but they are also great resources for your displays all year long.  All it takes is a simple idea with the right materials to make a beautiful display.

Embroidery hoops are a great tool for hanging in your window or above a table.  They come in many sizes, and these pictures show just a few ideas of what you can put inside them.  Endless possibilities!

It doesn’t get much easier than making paper fans.  Using the right paper for your display is the key.  I love this J.Crew window that looks like they used magazine pages while highlighing a seasonal color pop!

Remember making ice pop stick cabins?  Maybe you just remember eating the ice pops?  This store made a great display stringing up several painted ice pop sticks.

Using the right materials, such as vintage book paper, makes a string of paper airplanes so fun and interesting.  I love how the store below made a travel theme with these simple airplanes.
