Getting Creative with Winter Crafts

Winter in Denver means access to a plethora of enjoyable outdoor activities — but if you feel like staying indoors and snuggling up by the fire, a cozy craft can be just what the doctor ordered. When you’d rather save the adventure for another day, let these family-friendly art projects inspire your next DIY creation.

Turn Trash to Treasure

Take your recycling habits one step further by upcycling used plastics into trendy-yet-useful household items: Start an herb garden from milk cartons or build botanical bird feeders from empty soda bottles. These eco-conscious crafts will reduce waste while creating fun memories for the whole family! Scenic and spacious patios at Reunion are the perfect place to bring these garden and greenery visions to life.

No-Sew Blanket

This fun and simple project had its heyday in the 2000s, but is making a recent comeback — and we’re here for it. No needles or thread are necessary for these fleece tie blankets, and the best part? You can let your own passions and creativity fly free! All you need is two pieces of fleece fabric of your choice (about a square yard and a half each), a pair of scissors, and a ruler — in just 30 minutes, you’ll have a soft blanket to snuggle up with on cold Colorado days.

Crafting with Crayons

Create colorful masterpieces from that old box of crayons in the back of the craft room. With many melting methods, choose the option that makes sense for your home — then let the colors of the rainbow form anything your imagination manifests. From art pieces to candles, your new creations will sit pretty in your customized flex space.
