DIY Beret Craft

Hello, crafty parents, grandparents, and friends. Today’s craft is all about embracing the inner artist in kids. While my kids love crafts and scribble all over the house (walls, tables, floor, you name it!), we have never really spoken about art as a career or hobby. That art isn’t just something you can make but an artist is someone you can be.

In addition to arts and crafts, my kids love dressing up and pretend play. To allow the to live out their artist dreams I created this DIY beret craft. While it’s a bit cliché, it’s a fun craft and a fabulous addition to their paining smock when they are at their easels outside. These would also make a super fun craft for an art party.

This will be an easy tutorial since no sewing is needed! But if you plan to let your kids join you with this project, make sure to guide them in using the hot glue gun
