Take A Break Makes: Issue 3

Welcome to the new issue of Take a Break Makes, a magazine for enthusiastic crafters brought to you by the team at Take a Break.

Spring is here and we’ve sprung into action to bring you a magazine so packed full of fantastic crafts, it’ll keep you busy from now until Easter and beyond!
It doesn’t matter if you’re an absolute beginner or a seasoned crafter — there’s something fun and creative for everyone to try. All you have to do is follow our beautifully photographed, step-by-step guides and you will be able to create something gorgeous for yourself, your home or even as a gift. There are quick makes for when you haven’t got much time, and longer ones for when you’ve got a whole weekend to get crafty.


We’ve got lots of inspiration for your home, including ideas for glamming up your bedroom, setting the perfect spring dining table and creating a hanging herb planter for your kitchen. And if you need more storage, we’ve got the perfect upcycling project to create some extra shelves too.


If fashion’s your thing, then don’t miss our clothes upcycling special. Three amazing makers — our refashionistas — have shared three unique ways to give items lurking in your wardrobe a new lease of life. And if you’re off to a wedding we can help you create a unique fascinator to match your outfit perfectly.
Our talented team of crafting experts will also be helping you to master pyrography, macramé and calligraphy, with top tips and a step-by-step guide to a simple but gorgeous project to get you started.


If you’ve ever thought about turning your hobby into a business, we’ve got some inspiration for you. Our kitchen table tycoons tell you how they created their thriving enterprises and share some of their tips for success with you. They took a chance and it paid off — maybe once you’ve read their stories, you’ll take the leap too.


And if all that wasn’t enough, we’ve also got some fantastic prizes on offer. So don’t hang around, turn the page and start your creative journey.
Happy crafting!
