We love projects that don't require much set up, allow young kids to participate, and that don't break the bank. Throw in the fact that the end product has numerous uses and we're sold.
Abbey of Aesthetic Outburst has an answer. Her blinged out DIY alphabet looks super simple to make. Using metallic pipecleaners, Abbey and her daughter twisted and crimped their way to a great looking alphabet. Use them to practice letter recognition, mount and frame them as artwork, give as gift tags, or hang on your Christmas tree. (Yes, I just said Christmas before Thanksgiving has even arrived). We love the silver and gold pipecleaners but you can obviously use any color you like. For some close-up pics, check out Aesthetic Outburst right here.
