21   / REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Dream catcher from used glowsticks... on: May 20, 2013 09:54:29 AM
I had hundreds of these glowsticks after we had a youth group event. they didn't glow anymore, but they still were colourful. So I used crochet cotton and looked for a tutorial on how to make dream catchers. I made mine a little personal as I am a big romantic, so I'd like to dream accordingly. Wink

Ooo, that's a GREAT idea Dragonfly! Dry erase markers would work great here, but knowing kids, they'd mark on other things too. That could be a good game to play while you're waiting for your meal to arrive Smiley

Thank You! I also found another idea to take this one step further. I painted the inside of the glass jar a pale blue colour. It REALLY made a difference! I might make another & update with a pic - you'll see for sure! Smiley

how many pages do your menu covers have? Is it a single? 2-fold? or 3-fold?
On average, most restaurants get these by the 100's, so you should have lots
to play with! Smiley

What a great little desk to do crafts while watching TV and height adjustable too. Does yours have wheels on the bottom? It would be kinda neat to cover the top in a big map or fabric for a laptop desk. (mine gets kinda hot on my lap)
Maybe sew a runner type thing that drapes over the sides and has 2 big pouches on each end for putting craft projects into (you'd need to Velcro some tabs to hold it in place or something)

Good luck, i'd like to see what you came up with. Post your pics when you do Smiley

I sell them at work, so I think they are clear pockets?

I would use them as a great surface for creating a stained glass looking image using the paints that have that effect (they have some at our dollar store) and the black "leaded" effects.
If you are really ambitious, you can stand it up over a jar/glass that has one of those battery-operated candles in it. Then it will illuminate your picture nicely.
the great thing about the clear pouch is that you can draw a picture to trace and slide it into the sleeve for guidance
Good luck in whatever you do and don't forget to post a pic Smiley

Yes - you don't have to be super talented to make these. The busier the print, the better.
Just pick 3 round things of varying sizes and trace them for a template. I used a CD for the biggest sized one, a cardboard end off a ribbon spool for the middle one, and a juice can lid for the smallest one. This is a bouquet of 12, so make 36 fabric circles. Baste around the edge of each circle and pull the thread so it gathers, then tie off a knot. I found it easier to push the skewer through the fabric if I used a carpentry nail to make a pre-hole. A blop of hot glue holds it all together. To make "leaves" I took a green ribbon and tied it into a bow and glued it to the skewer. If you want colourful "stems" I just painted them multiple colours. They look cooler that way. Try making them, they're fun!

This is a good way to use up lots of scraps of fabric, some skewers, and an old jar
