Make Some Family Fun with a Do it Yourself Bean Bag Toss Game

    You can make this bean bag toss game yourself and customize it any way you like. Paint it any way you like. We recommend painting the target holes a contrasting color. The bean bags are literally filled with beans.

(See written instructions below video.)

   With the innovative leg design, you can adjust the slope any way you fancy. Since the support legs are independently adjustable playing on an uneven surface is no problem. The legs are also removable so you can store the game flat or hanging it.

   This game is lots of fun for the whole family. It can be played both indoors as well as outdoors. Just teach your pet to retrieve the bags after tossing at add a bit more laughter to the game. Check out the video to see how the Crafting Kitty gets it on the playing fun too!

Some people call this corn hole game

To make bean bags

  • Cut 3 dark and 3 light rectangles of fabric 4 1/2″ by 9″
  • Fold one piece in half right sides together along the 9″ side – it now measures 4 1/2″ square
  • Sew a narrow seam along 2 open edges
  • Turn right side out
  • Fill with beans
  • Realign open edge so that seam in centered one the former fold line.
  • Fold in edges and stitch across.
  • Repeat for remaining bags.

Easy and Inexpensive DiY project

Glistening snowflakes make this ornament especially cool. Pun intended. Upcycling old compact discs is also very cool. You can use old dvds as well as cds. The snowflake theme extends the use of these ornaments well beyond Christmas for the whole winter long. The contrast makes the snowflakes really stand out.
They are quite elegant yet very simple to make. In fact, if you can color you can make these. You likely have everything on hand to make these and since recycled cds are the base, the ornaments cost practically nothing to make.
