1  Pretty Little Hand Sanitizers (another classroom craft) in Completed Projects by Slue-Foot Sue on: August 09, 2010 04:44:44 PM
A long time ago I bought a bunch of tiny hand sanitizer bottles at Kroger. They are store brand, and not very attractive. I spruced up a few of them to put into my table markers/supply storage in my classroom for my students sharing supplies in the flu season(and all seasons).

The two on the left are hard to see in the picture.

So, for all those of you who were wondering if it worked, it was working until I felt like adding a festive garage sale purchase to the whole door decoration combo. The open mouth of the alligator tempts them too much.

3  Classroom Table Markers in Completed Projects by Slue-Foot Sue on: August 09, 2010 10:52:23 AM
These used to be red Folgers Aromaseal containers. Now they are cute storage bins and table markers for my 4th grade classroom. I don't have one for table one yet. I must drink more coffee.

4  I don't want any more menus crammed into my door!! in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by Slue-Foot Sue on: April 25, 2009 02:15:17 PM
Because I don't want any more menus or other junk crammed into my door, I made this painted wooden door sign. None of my seasonal wreaths or wall hangings really make sense right now. I asked myself, self, what message would you like to give all year long? I decided on this. If it works, I'll let you know. Probably they will stay the same or even increase.

Oh and I live in an apartment. I don't have some beautiful house that I'm mucking up with such unwelcoming signs! Smiley

5  Monster Snout for Penny in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by Slue-Foot Sue on: April 21, 2009 03:31:31 PM
Penny loves chewing on empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls. I love making things out of trash.

It is not all that crafty or work intensive, but here she is in her monster snout.

And wiggling around in a blurry pic on the ATTACK! (actually pretty haunting)

Thanks guys!

I wasn't using pringles cans, I was using these things:


I like that I was able to just spray paint the inside and outside since these are plastic. If I did this again, I might try pringles cans because they are big enough to fit your hand inside. I did a number on my knuckles trying to tighten the bolts I used as connectors inside those cannisters. I guess you could mod podge wrapping paper or scrapbook paper onto pringles cans. I don't think they would survive spray paint.

Start with a pattern you like. Print or draw it and set it inside the container. Most of these Crystal Lite type of containers are translucent so it makes for easy tracing.

I'm not sure what step was being demonstrated here:

Relentlessly stab, poke and carve at the thing with inadequate tools:

Last step is to spray paint and you have something that looks pretty interesting.

I have some pictures of the work in progress, but I need to find them.

9  what to do with those plastic lemonade cannisters (with pictures) in Completed Projects by Slue-Foot Sue on: April 11, 2009 08:19:56 PM
This was inspired by lindsycarranza's awesome pringles can organizer: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=241667.0

I was asking students to bring me pringles cans, but they didn't get around to it. Then I thought, pringles cans are very long and cardboardy. The plastic containers that powdered drink mixes come in would be perfect.

I will hang it on the wall in my classroom next week.

10  Obedience School Graduate in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by Slue-Foot Sue on: August 07, 2008 06:05:13 AM
My sister's dog, Willow, graduated obedience school last night. We made her a little hat from card stock. The tassel is made from embroidery floss and there is a chinstrap made of yarn.

Blurry picture with the tassel where it should be


Better picture with the tassel in the front, after some amount of flailing

These were taken at Petsmart with my mother holding Willow in place. Even after her class, she is not very obedient. Wildness is her way.
