Welcome to another edition of the Virtual Refrigerator! Thank you for joining me and my co-hosts for our weekly art link-up. We all cordially invite you to add your link sharing artwork that's on your Virtual Refrigerator and then hop over to the other blogs and admire what's on their Fridges too!

A couple of weeks ago I made mention of our homeschool group's Christmas craft breakfast, and shared some initial pictures. On today's Virtual Fridge, I'd like to show off the rest of Kennady's projects from that day.

We usually have somewhere in the neighborhood of twenty different craft projects for students to choose from, and they range from Christmas-theme decorations (like wreaths or ornaments) to crafty items that the students can keep or give as gifts. This year Kennady mixed up her own blend of scented bath salts, as a gift for me . . .

and 'painted' a mug to use as a desk accessory for herself. I believe these are done by putting nail polish in water and then dipping the mug or whatever you're decorating into it.

She and a friend arranged ahead of time that they were going to make the same crafts so they could spend the entire time together. Here they are starting work on their mason jar pendant lamps.

Inside is an Edison style LED bulb - pretty neat! Kennady decided to put the white paint that gives it a frosted look only partway up the jar so the bulb would still show a bit.

Her final project was a simply constructed wooden bird feeder. This was a gift for Dad.

Now we just have to hope that we're ready with a camera when the birds discover it!

now that is a really neat idea...having a Christmas Craft breakfast. I wonder if it would be hard to organize...

Mother of 3 said...

Great projects! I love those dipped mugs. We were supposed to attend a holiday craft day with our homeschool group tomorrow but my kids are all fighting nasty colds so we decided we'd sit it out.

Tawnee said...

Fun - thanks for sharing. Great project ideas!

Kylie said...

Ok I'm loving that idea from your homeschool group. What fun!

Tim said...

I had never thought of doing something like this! I like this idea. Not just for homeschoolers but for some of the low income kids that I work with. They can make their own Christmas gifts for their parents. I could have different churches or businesses sponsor a craft. I feel a ministry idea coming on. Now if I can just remember it for next year since this year is a little too late. :-)

Tim ~ you could probably do something like this in the spring for the kids to make Mother's Day and Father's Day gifts. :-) I'd be happy to send you as much information as I have about how the craft breakfast is organized

Sabrina said...

What a fun idea!! I love the idea of putting together a Christmas craft event for kids to make gifts!

Margaret Chind said...

Whenever I see your fridge posts, I always wish I lived nearby and could join in on the fun!
