Even though we're all staying home right now, you can still send love and cheer out into your neighborhood with a bright rainbow hearts window display! This creative project from Mikyla Creates is fun to do solo or with the whole fam if you're looking for an easy activity, and you only need a few supplies! Turn colorful tissue papers into a lovely window display with scissors and Aleene's Stick & Restick; it's not permanent, so you can tack up different displays whenever you're interested in creating something new.

We all have health and safety on our minds as we navigate ahead, and being prepared with supplies like face masks, hand sanitizers and gloves is never a bad idea when you need to be out in public. With the shortage of medical-grade masks right now, and those in supply being needed by healthcare professionals, many of us are getting resourceful and making our own! You don't have to know how to sew to make your own mask ... we'll show you how to DIY one using a T-shirt you already own and Aleene's Fabric Fusion Permanent Fabric Tape. Read on for the tutorial!

With the shortage of medical-grade N95 face masks right now - and the priority needed for healthcare professionals working hard to help treat and minimize the spread of COVID-19 - making your own face mask is an alternative option. And while homemade face masks are not on the same protective level as medical masks, they can still help by adding an extra safeguard we don't normally have! Not all of us know how to sew, but luckily we don't have to with nontoxic Aleene's Fabric Fusion, which is a permanent, flexible and washable fabric glue. We partnered with Holly at Club Crafted to create this DIY no-sew face mask tutorial for all of our friends out there who aren't experts with a needle & thread but still want to make a mask. Get the details and the pattern below and stay safe!
