I need craft ideas for jr. high Sunday school. All ideas appreciated.

Ususally the curriculum have craft ideas for the lessons. Or, go to a crafts store and browse the craft ideas and craft books and see what you can tie in to the lessons-there are lots of things for rainbows, flowerpots (growth, new life, etc), various things for fruits of the spirits, try a google search of Sunday school crafts, or similar.
how about making felt storyboards for the younger classes. making scenes from the bible stories they have heard for years bring them to life if you have to figure out what they wore or what their houses looked like. good luck
Beading bracelets, necklaces, fimo clay, origami, candle making (sand candles), basically anything beyond cutting and pasting. Middle schoolers like more elaborate projects, or projects that seem a little more technical, advanced. The Family Fun magazine has lots of projects for all ages, and is a great resource. Lots of times I adapt projects for older kids. Their website is also a great resource. Or, go to your library and check out a stack of old Family Fun issues and take them home and copy out the projects you'd like to use.
How about making a scale model Noah's ark (like 1 inch equals 1 yard)?
Making a map of the Biblical lands and then trying to figure out how far Jesus walked on His various travels.
Making baskets (or Jars) like ones used in Biblical times.
Create "God's Eye" or Dream Catcher. Popsicle sticks and different color yarn.
