Denver Craft Ninjas – Best Projects of 2012

Everyone counts down their favorites at the end of the year and we felt that we couldn’t let the 2012 slip by without mentioning our favorite projects! It’s even better when we share them with experts that bring their passion to the project!

Domino Pendants
One of the REAL hits of 2012! This project inspired Ninjas to grab their own alcohol inks and make a million domino pendants until the cows come home!
We love when one project spawns many Ninjas to go home and get to craftin’!

Sugar Skulls
After three years of making and sharing this sugar skull project, we’re darn near experts! And so are you! Every time you do this project, you show better and better decorating skills! Even better, we’re so thrilled to see return crafters come with their families and share this rad event!

Sew It All Felted Sweater Mittens
Sew It All Magazine is an outfit with some real deal craftin’ ladies! And we had the honor of working with them and learning from them. I’ve broken out my mittens this winter and found them to be so darn warm and cozy!

Pinterest Tested Tie Dye Tights
Before our pal Amber hightailed it to Seattle, we got to play with this really fun tie dye tights project! If you love tights, this is the project for you to brighten up your collection and add a DIY splash to your wardrobe!

Canning with Helliemae’s
We love Helliemae’s! It’s just that simple. And when Ellen opened the factory’s doors to Ninjas to learn how to can chutney and make quick pickles, we fell in love all the more! The space was perfect for cooking up a storm and everyone left with tasty stuff.

Pasties with Ooh La La Burlesque
A little risque, a little naughty – hanging out with the rad ladies of Ooh La La Burlesque is a reminder that we can all use a little risque in our lives! Not only were these super talented burlesque mamas totally hilarious, but they were great teachers too!

Upcycled Jewelry with Colorado Bead Co. 
We have several love affairs with local crafty businesses…and Anne at Colorado Bead Co. is definitely one of them! Anne let us take over the joint and provided us with all kinds of lovely beads and baubles and taught us to make some really cool upcycled necklaces with soda cans! Is there anything they can’t do over there?

Felt Wreath
This project was a tedious and, at times, frustrating stuggle. But it turned out beautifully. And that’s the reward! Beauty! After seeing the project on Dig This Chick, we realized we had to try it!

We hope that, in the new year, you’ll try something new! We hope that in the new year, you’ll join us for all kinds of crafty good times at Three Kings Tavern! We’re planning and plotting and have some really cool partners lined up for 2013!
Happy New Year, Ninjas!

Denver Craft Ninjas Domino Pendants!

Jewelry always brings ladies out of the woodwork!

Some may be interested in learning to make it, but a lot are excited about wearing it! I’m guilty as the next lady…I love me some sparkles! Our pendant project brought a lot of enthusiasm out of Craft Ninjas this month…so much so that we had inquiries on tutorials and materials.

We’re always psyched to share our ideas with you. A big part of learning about a project is teaching it and I learned so much from all of you!

Take a look at the photos to see all the lovely, hard working Ninjas that came to our domino pendant project! Also, peep their fine handy work! They’re all amazing pendant makers. It’s just a fact.

Denver Craft Ninjas vs. Domino Pendants

We’ve had lots of great suggestions on our Pinterest “Your Project Ideas” board and we’re always getting feedback on crafts you’d like to try.
Recently, someone suggested holiday gifts and when this lovely project presented itself…we couldn’t resist!

For November, we’ll be making domino pendants! We’ll be using rubber stamps, alcohol inks, and water based markers to create unique pendants. The simple techniques we’ll be employing will create colorful pieces that make beautiful gifts!

We’ll be providing all the materials for this project – this includes 2 dominos, jewelry findings, a lovely variety of Art Nouveau rubber stamps, and colorful alcohol inks and water based markers.

So, here’s the details:

November 18th, 2012 1:00- 5:00 PM at 3 Kings Tavern

The domino pendant project is $20 and covers all materials and instruction.
RSVP is a must – Use the this link to register for a spot!

As usual, bring some snacks to share and a little extra cash for a soda, beer, or cocktail!
We’re really excited about seeing all the unique designs you’ll come up with!
