Crafting and making art is very individual.
These moments are completely yours.
Even if you don’t have access to all of the materials, you can be creative and experiment.
If you prefer to use one type of material over the other, or if you prefer glue over sewing, do so.
The main purpose is to enjoy it and create your vision at every moment.
There is no need for any special

I love Eli Maor! I love this book! So loaded with great ideas I don't know where to begin... I loved the coffee cups painted in nail polish-very original! Also re-doable! Change them seasonally, or by holiday, or whim! Decorating with washi tape was irrisistable;. I can't wait to use it on some item when I redecorate. Soap making, toilet paper tube art, hair jewelry... this book is loaded with cool stuff for kids and adults to make! Photos are really helpful, too. It would make a cool gift for a ...more

One of the best ways to spend time together - with family, with a child, with friends - is when everyone is working on a project together. Keeping hands busy seems to allow the conversation to flow. Crafting has been a way to create this working together environment since time began. But, how do you get started and what can you create together? Eli Maor has provided a wealth of ideas in her book "The Craft Kingdom: DIY and Craft Projects for Kids and Adults". I received a copy of the book throug ...more

Go through your recycling bin and see what you could make…bangles from plastic bottles, a vase from a Pringles tube, gift boxes from toilet-roll middles. ‘The Craft Kingdom’ is all about things you can make using items you have at hand.
The book has large colourful photos and straightforward instructions and includes sections on making soap, candles and jewellery as well as lots of ideas for using everyday items. It’s not a thick , encyclopedic craft book with advanced techniques, and the projec

While the glue is drying on my bottle, I just want to say... For someone who wants to get into crafts, or to branch out into out kinds of ways to express your creative side, this little book is a gem. There isn't one theme to the book except that it is dedicated to a lot of different crafts that you can get to in-depth after this great introduction to it. It has very clear instructions on how to do the projects and still gives you room to personalize it, make it your own. A lot of the materials ...more

This is a great book for your reference shelf, there is a ton of different types of crafts with very clear instructions and pictures for the beginner or even just for inspiration.   This would come in handy for the long summer when looking for ideas to keep the kids busy or just for inspiration for your "artistic" side.This review was originally posted on Books In Brogan

The Craft Kingdom by Eli Maor will be a treasure to all those OCD organizers and craft supply hoarders out there. I know I have plenty in my boxes and bins to have a blast making quite a few of the 92 projects in this book. I kept saying "OOH" and "Neat" as I scrolled through the ideas Eli Maor offers in this surprising treat.

I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review. I loved how the author laid out the crafts step by step. I can't wait to begin making these projects. I like doing crafts, but I'm definitely at a beginner level. Fun for everyone.

Wide Variety

There is quite a bit packed in this book. It is a great resource for a variety of information about crafts.
I received a kindle version of this title and I thought it was an interesting idea, but the formatting was not very good. I really enjoyed that there was a lot of different ideas for creating crafts with everyday materials that a reader can make another use for. There were quite a few ideas that seemed outdated and not as new as the many ideas from Pinterest. This would probably be a good book for a young adult interested in starting crafts and need less screen time.

I like a good craft project, and I like to think I’m reasonably handy at “making things” - I actually make some of my own clothes. What I am not, however, is an artist. Like, at all. Seriously, no artistic skills whatsoever. Can’t paint, draw, sculpt, or anything else along those lines. But The Craft Kingdom looked like a lot of fun, so I requested it on Netgalley. I can’t say I thought it would turn me into Picasso, but hey, I can always stand to learn some new skills!

I decided the best way to

This book is filled with so many different projects! Most would be good to do on an afternoon. Many things can be found around the house and outside which is fabulous for those not wanting to spend a lot of money. Great book!

I received this book from for a honest review.

What a wonderful book, full of very simple and easy to make ideas, yet at the same time extremely modern and effective both in the home or as gifts. The supplies are either very easily sourced or available around the house. A book that children would be able to follow and make and an adult would be proud to make and use.
Lovely presented and good photograph instructions. Really good
