When you take on projects practically every single day, you begin to form a new appreciation for the simple ones. Of course, that’s not to say the complicated project aren’t worth doing. Trust me, I’m all for taking on the time-consuming creations; it always feel SO amazing once it’s finished.

… Yeah, I like them crazies.
Regardless, the super simple techniques will always have a special place in my heart. They’re ideal for getting that crafting itch out of the way, using up leftover supplies, and prepping yourself for a bigger version.
Extra points for when they’re a “faux” version that can double as something else. My latest tapestry project at Darice is the prime example; this little one was made with nothing more than plastic canvas and embroidery thread, two things that are the epitome of crafting basics.
