Take 5: Pinterest Boards for Crafting with Teens
Love it or hate it, Pinterest collects a wealth of ideas in a graphically pleasing way, and is an especially popular way to access craft ideas. For National Craft Month, we’re highlighting five great Pinterest boards that focus on teen crafts that can be done, have been done, or we dream of getting done in libraries.
1. Fargo Public Library: Book Crafts
Focusing on projects using repurposed books, this is a tidy page of individual projects as well as links to other sites with multiple projects.
(A word of experience regarding the books-into-boxes project featured – if you try it out, make your life easier: spend $20 and get an oscillating multitool.)
2. Gina DeLoretta Meinl: Teen Crafts
