10 Great Waldorf Craft tutorials

Do you need some waldorf craft ideas to fill up your summer?   This post is a list of 10 tutorials to make various great waldorf inspired crafts and projects!  I have specifically chosen tutorials that are not videos.  Sometimes I really prefer to do tutorials slowly without pausing a video every three seconds.  Hope you enjoy!

 

1: First on the list is a tutorial from Webloomhere. It clearly details each step with photos and the end result is a delightful puppet that you and your family can totally personalize!  Check it out below…

2: Next up at number two is a sweet little tutorial from rhythmofthehome on making mermaid tails for your dolls.  My own daughter has a total fascination with mermaids and this is the perfect craft to turn any doll into a mermaid.  This is a 10 minute craft with step by step instructions.

3: Third on the list is a great waldorf craft for any age!  Make a simple handmade kite.  Requires few materials and is yet another great step by step tutorial from “Rhythm of the home”

4: Number Four is one of my favorites (because it seems easy and instantly gratifying!  Make a Beeswax Lantern.  From herewearetogether.com.  It requires nothing more than beeswax and a balloon plus stuff you can find in your garden.

5: Maybe you need another lantern to go with the Beeswax one?  No problem!  Number Five on my list is another from Here we are together on making a twig lantern.  Such a simple, beautiful craft that you can do with mostly household items!

6: Number Six comes from an amazing site with tons of crafts duofiberworks.  This tutorial tells how to make a felt ball and is one that moms and young kids, or older kids can do with a few pieces of felt and some wool.

7: Number Seven is one on making a waldorf doll.  I have this craft in a book, but it never looked as fun as it does in this blog!  Thank the folk at www.livingcrafts.com for this one.

8: Number Eight is such an amazing idea.  Making furniture out of a stump of wood.  The folk at asmalltribe got a free stump from a scrap lumber place, removed the bark with a plain old $5 chisel, sanded the stump and ended up with an amazing piece of furniture for the kids to make of it what they will!

9: Number Nine is perfect for you child’s first felting project.  It is designed as a started felting project and you get a sweet felt heart in the bargain!  Big thanks to TheMagicOnions which is a wonderful blog.

10: Lastly at Number 10, once again from Here we are together is a great tutorial for all ages!  Making modeling clay out of corn starch, and then creating little fairy things!  Inexpensive and fun!
