Homemade Crafts for the Homestead

I have always been into homemade crafts. I started out with a passion for fiber arts and learned embroidery from a young age. I still love to spin, weave, crochet, and knit!

If you have created the self-reliant mindset needed for urban homesteading, you will be eager to find practical crafts that make things you will use on a regular basis.

Basket Making

Homemade Gift Basket Ideas

Homemade Paper Making
Learn how to make homemade paper and share your favorite paper making recipes and photos.

Homemade Paint
Find out how to mix up your own homemade paint from ingredients you may already have in your refrigerator.

Homemade Candles and Candle Making

How to Make Curtains

I'm taking pictures of my various projects and have more pages to add when I get around to them, so please keep in touch for updates.

My friend Lois has some amazing free online art classes if you want to learn basic drawing, painting, printmaking, and more.

Learning useful skills is going to be part of our homeschooling curriculum. We have a Waldorf book called "The Golden Path" that we'll be following. I'm so excited!

What other crafts do you find most useful on your homestead?
