For a project that looks complex and time-consuming, this blanket was actually really fast and easy to make. Crocheting the mesh base goes quickly, the chains for weaving go quickly, and the weaving is oddly satisfying!
Here's a fast, easy, DIY gift for the kids this holiday. Today we are making a super simple wall-mounted bookshelf. It's easy enough that a bigger child could do this themselves. This shelf is intended to hold books for kids in bunk beds, but could be good in any room that lacks space for a larger shelf or nightstand.
