31  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Peppermint Candy Wrappers! on: November 30, 2004 06:22:26 PM
I don't know about the wrappers- but if you hadn't eaten all of the candies, you could've made a really cool project from me. ha ha just kidding!  Cheesy  I took 2 pepermint candies and covered them with a coat of clear nail polish (to preserve them)  and then drilled holes through the top part to insert wire rings.  I made dangly earrings out of them!  I am a jewelry fanatic and love to make earrings out of odd objects.  This would make a nice gift if you use my suggestion!

Good luck to ya!

ha ha- you sound just like me.  A few years ago in 8th grade I had a 1000 popsicle stick box left over from a project and one summer, being the crafty person that I am, made a mobile.  What I did was on one popsicle stick, put a dot of glue in the center.  Then you take another and put it on top of the other stick but slightly bend the direction so that you can see a little of the last stick underneath it.  I just kept stacking and stacking them until it made a spiral shape, (like DNA) and it turned out really cool! 

At the end, I saved a stick and tied a string around it and glued it into place on the top of the spiral so I could hang it up.  I was going to paint it afterwards, but I decided that I liked the wood a lot.  If you put too much glue and it starts spilling over the sides, all you have to do is smear it along the horizontal edge so it doesn't matter that much.  If you put too little glue, than the spiral will break periodically (like fall in half) so my advice is to keep gluing and prop it up on  the side of a cabinet or something so it will be straight and it won't fall apart.

I ended up using the whole box of popsicle sticks and it turned out to be one of my favorite projects so definetly do it!  I hope my idea worked for you!

Good luck to ya!

With mine I spray-painted it silver- it looks really cool.  I'm going to make fun push-pins to go along with it.  Some other ideas I considered were tacking a piece of fabric to the cork part as a backdrop update and hot-gluing a border around the board: boa, rick-rack trim, ribbon, pom-poms, anything!

I hope my ideas helped!
good luck to ya!
