How to make a natural air freshener, and assemble your own laboratory for concocting teas, salves, and syrups | @offbeathome As a little girl I mixed up shampoos and lotions in my laboratory, trying to improve on the toiletries we had.

The Things She Makes: Papercraft Stars A few weeks ago, I posted a paper geometric heart tutorial and have fallen back in love with simple paper crafts. The next shape that seemed obvious for me to become obsessed with was stars. There are many a tutorial of this simple technique to transform a flat 2D star into a 3D embellishment, but here is my contribution. What I Used: Card Pencil / Ruler / Scissors Optional: template For this DIY, I created myself a simple 5-point star at the size I wanted and used this to trace around on my coloured card [but any star printed from google/Word/Pages/cut from a magazine will work just as well: Once you have traced around your template, cut your star and mark the center [note: this does not have to be exact at all. Using your scissors, score lines from this marked center to each point of the star [on a 5-point star this is 10 lines in total]: Now, for the folding - starting from the top point and working our way anti-clockwise. ...then to the line to the left, fold this away: see you next time x

Owls, Foil, Glue, and Shoe Polish (original artwork by David, grade 5) Art Club, Grades 1-6 This is one of my all-time favorite projects. The technique has been around for years, and I've loved using it several times with my students. This time around, our art is of owls and leaves. We first planned our compositions, paying attention to all of the positive and negative spaces. 1. **I've noticed on Pinterest some people think we used coloring book images. 2. 6. 7. Once you've filled all of the spaces, rub over the whole thing with black shoe polish, wait a few seconds, and wipe off. A couple of you have commented on the color- the results will be an aged silver metal look, something along the color lines of pewter. Yes. When I was hanging these up, parents, teachers, and kids all stopped to ask about them- I love being able to tell my Art Club artists how much people enjoy their art work! Make it a wonderful day!
