Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire is less than three weeks away, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait to tap into that maker mojo. Check out makezine.com’s Weekend Project feature to see dozens of how-to videos for every project from crafty to techy. We’ve picked out a few of our favorites below. If you try any of the projects you see, show it off via #CityOfMakers so that we here at Cincinnati Museum Center can get inspired as well. Let the countdown begin!
