Any feline fans out there will surely appreciate this channel as well, thanks to several tutorials with cat themes—my favorite is the DIY cat brooch using stone clay. I really appreciate that they include the craft supplies used inside the video titles, so it’s easy to find something based on your own supplies.

A super sweet (pun intended!) project that is also a favorite of mine is their fake Halloween cookies—a little time consuming considering you need to make your own cookie cutters, but as with the other videos, the design sheet link is included in the description. These would be so cute for individual Halloween ornaments or collected on string or twine to make a garland.
