I'm thinking plastic salad bowls, a drill, pop cans, tin snips (or tin foil) and a hot glue gun....that's my first brain wave at just looking at the pic.

Drill holes in the salad bowls, place the lights threw the holes, and secure with hot glue, cut out star shapes from the pop cans, or make little foil cups and glue them around the lights.  Maybe use two strands, one for each bowl and run the plug ends out the same hole.  Hot glue the two halves into a whole.... and viola.

This might look cool using the metal salad bowls if your into heavy duty drilling,  but then it would look to disco ballish....

 Don't think I have the time, the wee babe takes up most of it....so if this gives you any inspiration..... Smiley

Post any pics pls...

Is it in a home ec teacher maunal somewhere that they have to tell the same story to every class they have ever taught.  I got the same story of the pin in the eye in gr 7.... I myself have broken a few needles and bent many more pins in my lazieness....I do now remove most of the pins as I go...One other story she told us was about someone sewing into their hand and having to take the machine and all to the hospital to have it removed....I'm still slightly parinoid of that silly needle....Mrs Locke's voice still rings in the back of my mind when ever I sew.....isn't it amazing what you remember 20 years later.......

vinegar worked a tid bit in my car (after it evaporated, but then there was the mold smell from the back seat from months before I even bought it)
Stick a dryer sheet under the seats in your car and have that summer breeze freshness.... Grin
15  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Gift Ideas for Teachers? on: December 08, 2004 07:58:49 AM
I live in Ontario Canada and we have very serious educational funding issues.  My son in in sk and has a super special teacher.  Recently I was given the suggestion to give teachers school supplies..... they put alot of their own money each year into supplies for their classrooms....so for junior, elementry grades, constuction paper, markers.....or even a gift card to Staples or local stationary/craft store...so it's  a little less money out of their pockets,  And it doesn't collect dust or get regifted down the road.  Putting it in a special homade card with the childs pic,  that can be kept , using up less space, for her to look back on in later years.

For the high school, college teachers........ gift certificates, or bake goods sounds useful.

Or again a homemade card, with a special letter/poem just letting that teacher know how special and how much you feel they have impacted your life... with a great big huge Thank you.  I think this would mean so so more than a mug saying # 1 teacher,  even if they are number one,  because teacher's rock......

That's my two cents worth.....

ok, you know the little packets of stuff that come in new shoes? what is that stuff....ummmmm silica gel, that's it...anyway if you toss a packet of that in with your rice, you will get buggies of no kind, and it also prevents mold.

You can get this stuff in craft stores too...for drying flowers and such....this would also prevent mold and mildew from forming..... but the shopping for shoes has double benefits.  It's enviomentally friendly, also, you don't just threw  all those little packetts in the landfill.....

I think fibre fill would work as well, with a little weight in the bottom,  then no buggies problems...... Smiley

Try the hats for these little cuties I'm sure they would work

Or I've also seen it done with a toddler or baby sock.  Cut the one end off, gather the one end in and turn inside out.  Add a pompom and volia a wee tugue.....

Hope this helps some. Smiley
