Make-It / Take-It Crafts


These fun, hands-on activities encourage participants to explore their creativity while giving new life to recycled materials. 

I-Spy Bottle

For crafters of any age. A uniquely shaped glass bottle soon becomes a hunt for hidden treasure. This quick, fun project will provide hours of entertainment for years to come.  Make it for yourself or give it as a gift.  How many things can your eye spy?

Create-a-Creature

Participants use a brightly painted dried gourd as a body; then add eyes, feathers, feet, etc. to create a one-of-a-kind creature.

Remember to bundle up, the crisp autumn evenings are upon us this time of year.

​Pocket Purse

Transform an old jean pocket, colorful fabric braids, and other embellishments to create a must-have accessory for girls of all ages.

Cutting and pasting skills are used to magically transform a simple egg carton into a witches face.

Trick-or-Treat Bag

An ordinary brown kraft bag with handles is embellished with paper cutouts and stickers; a quick, easy project perfect for young crafters.

​Trick-or-Treat Bucket

This fun project allows kids to customize a recycled purple can by adding paper cutouts: a yellow moon, ​a black bat and cat, an orange pumpkin, a ghost, spooky house and tree, etc. to create their own Halloween treat container. 


Silly Snake

Create a fun—and not-so-scary—serpent by stringing together colorful corn cob segments and beads, top with a set of google eyes.  Very popular with young male crafters.
