17 Crafts That Remind You Of Your Grandma’s House

Crochet. Needlepoint. Cross Stitch. Tole Painting. There wasn’t a craft Grandma couldn’t do.

1. Crocheted chevron afghan…

…or granny square quilt

They were seriously the BEST to snuggle under.

2. Fancy crocheted accessories in the bathroom

Bonus points if it also came with a crocheted seat cover and matching rug

These pieces complimented the dusty soap dish filled with rose soaps and/or liquid bath beads that you weren’t supposed to use.

3. Tole-painted goose

Oh, tole painting, how the lady of the 80’s loved you so.

4. Bent-over yard figurines

I like big butt decorations and I can not lie.

5. Doilies in all shapes and sizes

She may have even had this crocheted gem!

Doilies were a grandmother’s decorating must-have.

6. Crochet-topped hand towels

These were particularly good to make for wedding showers or bunco gifts!

7. Teddy bears wearing clothes with straw hats

Teddy bears are very dignified creatures and deserved to be dressed in only the best Daisy Kingdom prints!

8. Framed cross stitch in the bathroom

These lace and embroidery delights were the perfect thing to look at while on the crapper!

9. Needlepoint coasters

Smurf glasses just sweat better on these things.

10. Hand-painted saw blade…

…or landscape on an entire hand saw

Extra props if they had one of these! Paint at your own risk, right?

11. Hand-painted ceramic figurines

I love their disinterest in each other.

12. Crocheted air freshener

Because anything that diffuses odor should look good, of course! Bath and Body Works Wallflowers plugins have nothing on this beauty!

13. Decorated Wicker Basket

It’s purpose wasn’t exactly clear.

14. Something in the house featuring Holly Hobby

Holly Hobby could kick Laura Ingall’s butt anyday.

15. Crocheted bedding in the room you stayed in

Of course, the bedspread was folded up and put to the side, since it was really “all show”.

16. A handmade photo album with all the trimmings

Satin ribbon never looked so good.

17. Crocheted fridge magnets

…that hung up your artwork you made for her.

This is a drawing I made for my Grandmother in 1987. I sure do love and miss her and all her crafty things!
