Handmade Easter Baskets
The Clay Pot
It was so much fun making these handmade…
and I might add…organic looking
They are so simple to make.
Take any kind of paper…
(we used white packing material)
Cut or rip the paper into strips.
Mix equal parts basic school glue and water.
Cover a deep salad or cereal bowl complely with cellophane.
Dip you paper strips in the glue/water mixture and lay strips over bowl.
Continue until your bowl is completely covered.
Let dry for 24 hours…
Carefully, lift paper basket off of bowl…separating you paper from you cellophane.
Add grass and eggs!
Display and enjoy!

“Step Up To The Plate”
Here’s a fun easy way to add some WOW to a wall…
You can use any assortment of salad plates.
I always group them on the floor first
to see how the colors work together…
using peel off velcro…
peel and stick.
I like placing them close together on a wall,
that way, you don’t even need a tape measure.
We recently had a party in Riverview Park for our”Camp Joe Joe’s”
summer campers and their families & friends.
We created this fun photo shoot of a roller coaster…
I made it out of plywood, pvc pipe and a little red paint.
I printed letters on my computer
and cut them out and glued them to the front.
As you can tell…it was a big hit!
“Carnival Ticket Bugs”
These are just too cute not to share…
Here is just a sampling of the 250 “Bugs”
students from Normal Park School in
Chattanooga, TN created this past
Saturday at our “Folk Art Bug Workshop”
held in the IMAX at The Tennessee Aquarium.
The bugs will be used with the decorations for next
week’s national convention of zoo and aquarium
dignitaries being held this year in Chattanooga.
It’s amazing when you show the kids a simple idea
of using “Carnival Tickets” they come up with these
wonderful whimsical bugs!
Thanks to everyone who participated!
