They look wonderful!  How cute.  Now - crochet a little maryjane to fit over the cast... teehee!
232  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: A broken umbrella on: January 11, 2008 11:54:00 AM
If you have small children, you could mount it on the bedroom wall and affix something fun in the middle - like a great big colorful mat.

Also - you could fashion it around something round, then collect it at the bottom and make a model of a hot-air balloon.

Since it's waterproof, you could cut out the middle and use it as a hair-cutting cape.

You could use it as a table cloth on a round outdoor table, even it if has an umbrella over the table - just put the pole through the center.

Turn it into a cute mini skirt!

I could do any weekend but the 9th/10th of February.

Spot coffee is always nice downtown?

You could fill a small bag with sand or rocks, then add a CD and tie or sew it closed.  This would make a decent door stopper with a nice flat bottom.

Traveling?  Hook bracelets through the center so that they don't tangle.

Use them as a flat base from which to build fabric Russian nesting-type dolls.

Cut them in half, then build a border around your room connecting the halves into an s-shaped, squiggly border.

Slice a drinking straw at the top, then insert the CD into it, so that it looks like a giant lolly-pop. Decorate and hang at Christmas time.

Glue them onto the bottom of children's cups so that they don't tip over easily.

Drill 4 holes down through four or five CDs, then hang on wire or chain so that they make little shelves to display small art projects.

Cut the CDs like a semi-circle of silveriness (make the cut before the clear part), then attach to projects like butterfly wings.

Use them like Hansel and Gretel "breadcrumbs" by showing the way to a surprise or a kid's party.  Even write "follow  me" on them.

Number them then affix them to the floor with sticky tack for a cakewalk.

Hide them in the backyard for a child's party, like easter eggs.  Write numbers on them that will correspond to prizes for the kids.

Affix them to the hem of a full skirt for a Judy Jetson-like futuristic costume.  Insert a pony tail through one like a hat to complete the look.

Decorate 25 of them, numbered, and use them like an advent calendar around the room.

Attach them together to make a Christmas tree garland - imagine how the lights will sparkle!

OK - enough brainstorming for now... back to work for me!
