If you’ve been following us on Facebook and Instagram, you’ve seen our fun countdown to the new issue coming out! Below are the pics + simple instructions. They might inspire you to get crafting with some of our new favorite techniques!


10: Print numbers in your fave font. Trace the numbers onto patterned paper and cut out.


9: Print letters to spell the word “nine.” Use them as a guide to add nails into a wooden board. Use embroidery floss to “trace” the letters by wrapping the floss around and between nails.


8: Twist rope to form a shape. Learn more about tying knots and using rope in your decor in our Fall/Winter 2015 issue.


7: Cut straws into 1″ segments. Glue the straws to popsicle sticks to form a “7”.
