This is a great craft for any holiday.

Make an ornament, pin, necklace, earrings, ANYTHING out of this.

You will need these for making ornaments:

uncooked Couscous pasta

wooden shapes of desired sizes

ribbon and/or "rickarack"

acrylic paints

bowl

spoon

Tacky glue

In a glass bowl, or better yet, a disposable one, combine some uncooked Couscous pasta, and some crafter's glue. Tacky glue works great. The consistancy should be looking like cookie dough, moldable and not over wet. Use immediately before it dries. A good idea to make small batches.

Take plain wooden shapes and cover the front side with the couscous mixture. Use your fingers to pack it down and get good coverage, flattening in out to look "pillow" like.

When it is dry, paint the surface as desired with acrylic paint. Let the front dry, and then paint the back and let it dry.

Use Tacky glue to attach a hang loop at the top, then glue down "rickarack" or ribbon to trim the edges out and hide where the hanger loop is attached.

Let dry a whole two days before hanging.

You can add so many imbellishments to these and they look great!

For Valentine's Day we take white pipe cleaners and my boys string red/pink/purple/clear beads on them (you can use any colour beads, but if you get the kids to sort out the Valentine colours they'll look nicer and the kids will learn their colours at the same time). I then bend the pipe cleaners into a heart shape, tie a red ribbon on the top, and we have a nice ornament to hang up anywhere.

Making something with birdseed would be nice to feed wild birds. Just tie pastel ribbons and make bows to suet or a birdfeeder. The little plastic eggs in the mix for more color would be pretty.

If you have the time. A very time consuming craft!

recyclers dream

use eggs --->> blow out the inside through 2 holes (1 on top and 1 on the bottom), dry completely

Cut up Japanese rice paper (washi, it must be a heavy type of paper, wrapping paper will not do) into double side picket fence design making sure that the design fits the egg {top to bottom and around -- all eggs are NOT the same size}

wrap around egg

glue pickets down from middle to top and then from middle to bottom (pickets will overlap toward ends of the egg ---->>> with rice glue

dry completely --->> embellishments can be done at this time

cover egg in lacquer or varnish for glossy shine

attach cord hanger from top of egg

Better instructions with pictures:

This craft can be done for Easter or Christmas. Good luck

You can buy the glass ornaments at a local Craft Store like Michaels or Hobby Lobby that are egg shaped, use the Delta brand Air Dry PermEnamel Paint. It comes in reglar colors and shimmer colors.Use The Shimmer paint, and paint the eggs and then fill them with twinkle type fill it makes a beautiful egg. I use the same color fill as the color of the shimmer paint. You can also decorate them with rubon transfers.

You can buy both egg and heart shaped glass ornaments for your local craft store like Michaels or Hobby Lobby. Use Delta brand air-dry PermEnamel Shimmers Paint, paint the eggs and I use the tinsel type filler and fill the eggs with the same color that I have painted the eggs. You can also use rub on transfers they work well also.
