Along the Yellow Brick Craft Road

It’s beginning to look a whole lot like Oz on our Rural Mom farm
thanks to the complimentary box of Darice Crafts we received. 

I’d tell you we were off to see the wizard, but the Emerald City already arrived on our doorstep in a box chock full of delightful Wizard of Oz-inspired crafts from Darice.

One of the most beloved films ever, The Wizard of Oz is celebrating its 75th anniversary next year.  Whether it’s due to the incredible acting talents, the colorful characters in the film or the simplistic moral lessons prevalent throughout the story, Dorothy and her little dog, too, have wiggled their way into the hearts of millions along their fantastical journey from Kansas to Oz.

As a child I was enchanted with The Wizard of Oz.  I wanted Glinda, the good witch as a fairy godmother and totally coveted Dorothy’s sparkly red shoes.  Putting together some of the Darice crafts brought back great memories of the movie I’ve practically memorized over the years.

Naturally, I found myself humming “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” as I put together a super cute clothespin Dorothy. (You can thank me later for sticking that tune in your head!) 

A little bit of popping things in place, adhering the foam pieces to their designated spots, and three clicks of the glue gun for the skirt and my little friend Dorothy came to life.  I’m thinking with a little fishing line, she’s going to make a terrific handmade ornament for our holiday tree next month.

All of your friends and favorite scenes from The Wizard of Oz come to life with the amazing array of Darice crafts.  From Foam Stickers (above) to Foam and Felt Kits like that of Glinda the Good Witch (below,) there’s something to capture the creative spirit of Oz fans young and old from this collection.

  • Color-In-Wood Kits
  • Pom Characters Activity Kit
  • Stained Glass Paper Pack
  • Felt Masks
  • Foam Kit Ruby Slippers Shoe Covers

    I love those kits that use the clothespins. I too have often lusted for those ruby slippers. We need to each buy a pair and have lunch together. Thanks for bringing this product to my attention as I think these would be great crafts to have on hands for the grand kids.

    Those are so cute! I always wanted my own pair of Ruby Slippers so I could tap them and go somewhere else.
