Did you know that March is National Craft Month? In today’s Liv Northgate Blog, we’ll be sharing a list of fun and creative crafts you can make at your apartment to celebrate this holiday. We hope you get to be creative and enjoy your month here in Gilbert, AZ!
Vintage Map Coasters from eHow
These coasters are fun to make and practical for your apartment space. To make them you’ll need a birch plywood board, a miter saw, vintage screws, scissors, a tape measure, an electric sander, Mod Podge, a sponge brush, spray polyurethane, a hot glue gun, and twine.
Hot Glue Canvas Art from The Crazy Craft Lady
This is a great craft that can give you loads of inspiration. If you want to make this exact hot glue canvas art piece from the link above you’ll need these supplies: a stretched canvas, a printer and paper, a pencil, tape, a hot glue gun and glue sticks, craft paint, and paint brushes. With these items the sky is the limit. Write or draw something with the glue gun and paint over it with your choice of colors and enjoy your masterpiece!

Stained Glass Hanging from Bespoke Glass Tile
We can’t get over these pieces of art and how beautiful they will look when the light catches the glass in those early hours of the morning. Sure, some of the pieces are pretty pricey, but if you love it enough, it will be totally worth it. And take care of it and it will last you a long time! You could also make your own stained glass crafts if you really want to save some money.
