With various levels of stay-at-home orders and social distancing guidelines in place across the country, it is a great time for kids, teens, and adults to get involved and try their hand at making homemade crafts. We here at Tuc Blanket have recently crafted everything from acrylic beverage coasters, scented candles and fragrant soaps, hot pan trivets, beeswax food wraps, and homemade jams and nut butters for our pantries. We enjoy using our spare time away from work to pursue creative handiwork.
