"Bottles Of Hope" (Arts/crafts)

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

Hi all,

I know many on the forum consider "helping others" to be a large part of their homestead philosophy. But with a farm and family to tend to it's not always easy to commit to a regular schedule of volunteer work outside the home.

I just came across this article and thought it would be a great project especially for artistic homeschoolers who like to play with clay. Be nice to get together as a group and have a "bottles of hope" bee!

It involves covering small bottles with bright colored polymer clay -as fancy as you like- bake in oven at 275 for a few mins. Put an inspirational message inside. Some hospitals are handing them out to new cancer patients and getting a great response.
