Today’s craft project was a hybrid between last week’s failed and successful sun catcher attempts.
Materials used: Elmer’s clear glue, glow-in-the-dark star-shaped beads, silver thread (which we strung through one bead to use as a hanger), and the plastic lid from a canister of steel-cut oats.
Step 1, as always, involved dumping the beads, followed by a significant amount of time spent shuffling the beads around on the cookie sheet.
This time, Zander incorporated a bulldozer to repeatedly transport the beads from one end of the cookie sheet to the other.
Step 2 involved some very serious gluing.
You have to do your lips like that in order for the glue to stick properly.
Step 3 was placing the star-shaped beads onto the pre-glued oatmeal lid.
Step 4: more glue.
Step 5: more beads.
Step 6: play with a random cookie cutter that has absolutely nothing to do with this project.
The finished ornament looked like this:
And although you can’t really tell from the photo below (bummer), when you turn out the lights, it glows in the dark, which Zander and I both think is pretty cool!
