I wanted a big craft table with lots of workspace AND lots of storage. It turns out this is not something you just buy. But I didn't want to make it entirely from scratch either. So I hacked together some inexpensive IKEA units into an amazing craft table with tons of storage!See the full tutorial here: https://jennifermaker.com/diy-craft-table-storage-ikea-hack/

Move over snowglobes! I've got an even better idea -- a glitter globe! And let's put it atop a Mason jar! The best part of this idea is the glitter stays in the globe, not on you AND you get to fill the Mason jar with goodies. This is perfect for all of those "gifts in a jar." Of course, you can also make this as a snowglobe jar! I'll show you how to make both.For the full tutorial, please visit https://jennifermaker.com/diy-snow-globe-top-mason-jars-rose-glitter/
I needed a way to store my craft tools, but also move them around the room with me as I craft. So I came up with this portable pegboard idea. I use an old frame with an easel stand so I can both hang it up on the wall as well as stand it up on a table. It works great!See the full tutorial at https://jennifermaker.com/diy-framed-pegboard-craft-organizer-tools/Gather up your materials. Be sure you have the tools or whatever else you want to hang from your pegboard, too, so you can decide on placement of pegs.

The Great American Eclipse is Monday, August 21 -- are you ready for it? Solar eclipse glasses are sold out, so I've designed an eclipse viewer made from things I had around the house. The great thing is that I can adjust the length of my viewer for a larger image of the eclipse, or shorten it for a brighter image. This is also a great way to beat the heat of the sun during the eclipse, as you'll keep your back to the sun with this viewer.Get the full tutorial and the free viewer pattern at: https://jennifermaker.com/eclipse-viewer-tube-diy-safe/Step 1: Gather your materials. You'll need cardstock cut out in according to my pattern (see link above), tape (I recommend both Scotch tape and Duct tape), aluminum foil, and a pin or needle.
