Everyone loves a long weekend. That extra day gives you plenty of time to enjoy the sunshine, spend time with family — and maybe start a project or two. We’ve rounded up some projects from our video archives that would be lots of fun to create with kids, with friends, or just on your own. And the best thing is, these are all quick projects, so you’ll definitely be able to finish them before Monday night.

This mini-terrarium is cute as a button… like a flower arrangement, but it won’t wilt and die.

Mason jars and vintage glass jars are super easy to come by. Here’s an easy technique for painting them any color your heart desires.

And finally, this firefly jar lamp is super cute… and super easy to make. Happy crafting!
