Frosted Glass Votive
small glass jars
colored nail polish
clear nail polish
table salt
votive candles
Wash and dry the jars well, removing labels and glue. Decorate the jars using the colored nail polish to create designs or cover the entire surface by blending or layering the polish. Let stand until the polish is dry.
Cover the surface of the jars with a coat of clear nail polish and let stand until the polish is tacky. Sprinkle with salt to frost and let stand until completely dry. Brush gently to remove the loose salt. Place a candle in each jar.
Helpful hints - lay down a plastic mat to work on - plastic table cloths or old shower curtains work well for art projects. Try the dollar store for inexpensive supplies

Instead of a dozen roses for Valentines, why not give A Dozen Poses!
12 photos
12 wooden skewers - available in grocery stores
1 clay pot - 4-6 inches in diameter
floral foam
red, white and pink small heart shaped doilies - available in craft stores
red card stock paper
double sided tape
regular tape
glue stick
florist moss
Cut each photo into a heart shape, so that it fits the small heart shaped doily-leaving a boarder showing of the doily. Double sided tape or glue the photo to the doily. Tape the wooden skewer to the back of the doily. Glue the doily to the red card stock paper, cut out the card stock in a heart shape, leaving a boarder of red. Finish all twelve photos. Cut the floral foam to fit into the clay pot. Decorate your pot using ribbon, paints, paint pens, jewels, etc. Insert the foam into the finished pot. Insert the finished skewers into the foam, fanning them out so you can see each photo. Place the Florist Moss over the top of the foam so it covers it.
Use your imagination! This can be done for Valentine's, Birthday's, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Grandparents Day, or for a fuller arrangement, a great gift for a teacher.

Sidewalk Chalk
Warning: This is a fun and messy project! Also, this stuff won't work on chalkboards because it's too hard. It works great on sidewalks, however, and it lasts much longer than store-bought chalk.
1 cup plaster of paris (do not pack) Almost cup cool water Liquid tempera paint in various colors (your kids' teacher may "donate" the paint in exchange for a few sticks of chalk) Margarine tubs, or other disposable mixing containers Disposable molds (toilet paper rolls with tape covering one end to make a "cup") Pour plaster into a container. Using a disposable stick, stir in most of the water. Add 2 or 3 tablespoons of liquid tempera, mixing well, especially at the bottom. Add a little more water so the mixture thickens, stir well, and pour into the molds. After the chalk is completely dry, remove it from the molds.

Festive Felt Flower Napkin Ring
Make a beautiful and easy napkin ring from felt - no sewing and no gluing! Just cut 3 pieces out and slip them together.
Felt - green plus at least one other color
Printer - optional
Either print out the template here (click here to go to the template) or draw a similar one on paper.
Cut out the 3 pieces to use as templates.
Cut out the leaves from green felt and the other two pieces from another color or colors. Make a 1 inch slit on the leaves piece and the other petals piece (but not the bone-shaped piece).
Slip the green piece onto the bone-shaped piece. Then slip the petal piece onto the same end.
Slip the other end of the bone-shaped piece through the green piece and the petal piece. The bone-shaped piece should form a loop.
Slip a rolled-up napkin through the loop in the bone-shaped piece and you're done.

Supplies for each:
A large, open pine cone
Vegetable shortening, lard or suet
Oats or corn meal
