This week at Crafting A Future, I showed my !st and 2nd grade girls how to make sweet wall hangings for Passover using the tiny Passover wine cups and goblets that we made last week. And while I do try to encourage individualism when it comes to creating art, in this case using the paper doily (from my childhood!) in the center really produced the nicest results, so the results amongst the girls are similar, though not identical of course.
The use of pony beads in pastel colors gives these Passover wall hangings added dimension.
And these are the kinds of projects that are so easy to save from year to year....I told my girls to make sure to carefully pack up their works of art together with the Passover dishes!
As you can likely discren, this last example was actually made by a girl in the 5th grade, who came to the class for older girls and needed an idea for a project to complete in one sitting.
- colored card stock
- white paper doilies, vintage if you have them!
- oval craft punch and scalloped craft punch (optional)
- aluminum foil Passover goblets and wine glasses, tutorial here
- pony beads
- lanyard or wire for stringing beads
- glue stick
- hot glue (and adult to do the gluing)
- hole punch
- ribbon for hanging
How To: All the items were adhered using a gllue stick, except for the beads, which were affixed using hot glue. One can use white glue to affix beads, but its not always so successful, and likely not a great way to attach a whole string of beads to a piece of paper.
To hang, punch two holes in the top, and attach ribbon, or hot glue ribbon to the back. Enjoy!
