Top 5 Arts ‘n’ Crafts Upgrades: Young, Wild, & Free

Top 5 Arts ‘n’ Crafts Upgrades

Dressing like a second-grader seems to be the thing right now. Come to think of it, it’s not entirely unlike a man buying an expensive sports car during a midlife crisis. The cost of youth ain’t cheap. My recommendation is to head over to Michaels and indulge in a day of DIY. For a few mere bucks, you, too, can be hip. Or you can take your pick of the bright, crafty, and kindergarten art class-inspired pieces, mostly by Mira Mikati, below. There’s nothing wrong with a little nostalgia! My son made key chains exactly like these; his were actually more intricate, though, in the likeness of superheroes and what not.
