Are you a camp director, teacher, or homeschool mom searching for a new arts and crafts idea for your kids? Or maybe you really are a recreation director in a senior center or elderly care and may make use of a new project. In either case, this arts and crafts idea is going to be enjoyable for those. This glass case may be used, given like a gift, or changed into a necklace purse.
To create the glasses case, you will require the next simple materials: a square of craft foam, plastic or large blunt needles, lanyard lace or thick yarn. Cut two rectangles in the foam, each 3-1/2 inches (9 cm.) by 6 inches (15 cm.). With an opening punch, make holes on three sides of every rectangle, leaving one short side unpunched. Make the holes 1/2 inch apart and permit a minimum of 1/4 inch between your hole and also the fringe of the craft foam. The holes have to fall into line so the two pieces could be laced together. If you are preparing the craft for young children, you should result in the holes yourself. Otherwise, the crafters can perform this task if you have sufficient pairs of hole punches.
At this time the crafters can trim decorative shapes from other colors of craft foam, or you can purchase sets of ready-cut foam shapes. If you do the craft in a function, like vacation Bible school, choose shapes that echo the theme from the event. For example, when the Bible school or camp includes a cowboy theme, find shapes that fit well, for example boots, cowboy hats, and stars. Let the children pick the shapes that like and glue on as desired. You may also prefer to provide beads or sequins to glue on too, specifically crafters really are a little older.
The next phase on this arts and crafts idea would be to thread the plastic needle using the yarn or lanyard lace. Yarn may be just a little simpler to handle, but lanyard lace is shiny and attractive. In a pinch, some teachers of young children make use of a bobby pin like a needle. It is unquestionably a secure alternative. Simply loop the yarn with the opening and employ outdoors end from the bobby pin as though it were the purpose of the needle. The children are now able to start to lace the leading and back from the glasses case together.
To show this arts and crafts idea right into a necklace purse, simply fasten a bit of lanyard lace to every corner creating a long handle. Kids will love by using this case like a spot to store secret notes and small objects. If they’d rather, they are able to provide the glasses case to some parent, grandparent, or friend who wears glasses. In either case, this arts and crafts idea is going to be interesting for those.
