DIY Friendship Crafts for Your Besties!

Your kids probably have tons of friends and they probably spend a lot of time together so they’re going to want to cherish those friendships forever. Here are some DIY friendship projects that your kids can make to show their bestie just how special they really are. All you need is a little inspiration and a few friends…

Let’s start with those shells you collected from your summer beach vacay… just glue them on to a plain old frame to create bedroom decor. Don’t forget to put a photo of your favorite memory in it then give it to a friend for a birthday, or give it to them just because you can.

Another idea to do with those shells is to spend an afternoon making necklaces.  All you do is drill a hole in the shell using a 1mm tile and ceramic glass drill bit – parental guidance is needed – glue a gem or embellishment in the shell and then add a strap or metal chain.

Next is the BFF Canvas Project! Just make a “friends date” with your core group of friends and create one-of-a-kind wall art! Each person makes her own personalized canvas incorporating art and words stating what friendship means; then the canvas art are randomly selected by each person in the group to keep and cherish forever.

Make your own “Best-Tees” because we all know two friends who are inseparable! Get plain t-shirts, use iron-on letters and numbers or use fabric paint that you can get at any craft store to create these best-tees and you’ve got fashionable friendship forever.

The newest trend in friendship bracelets… has the making process easy and fun with a little bit of sparkle and no need to spend hours weaving thin string together. Simply cut fabric scraps into strips, glue on some gems, and cut the ends into a fringe. Tie on one or more on to show your friends some love!

Finally, create a keepsake memory box for all of the secret notes, concert tickets, pet rocks, souvenirs and other school memories…Using an old cigar box with the labels peeled off, or use a plain wooden box, paint it any color you want, spray mount a photo on top, and add embellishments. You can even add a special sentiment on the inside top too!

And there you have it DIY friendship crafts to show your friends just how much they mean to you there’s sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face.

HAPPY 100th Anniversary to the legendary @wgnradio  The radio station was always playing at my house growing up… mom would listen every night on her transistor radio when she was sewing or doing laundry… and Dad always had it tuned-in in the car. There was never a day that we weren’t listening to the personalities that made it so great. 
And then to actually be on the air at WGN 720 was always so surreal to me. 
I am honored and blessed to have been a very very small part of 100 years. 💙💙💙 To those who made it happen, thank you.  Long live radio!!
