This makes a very pretty paper weight! The Yarney Stone - brush a ring of tacky glue around the middle of a clean rock. Starting from the center, wrap yarn around the rock, spiraling toward one end. Add glue as you go. Repeat process on the other side.
DIY wall art project: kids can glue & place buttons inside a simple silhouette shape of larger animal, and sign a gift card with corresponding image (thank you for your silent auction purchase - proceeds to benefit our school)
Hand painted tree rings - would recommend putting all tree rings on a board (which could be painted a coordinating color to add pop to the art piece. Really neat idea for after school kids. Might just do 9 rings in a square frame!
