Fruitful Friday Continued...

So yesterday we made our pot of gold using the extra green yarn and balloon I had. It was pretty simple.

We combined white glue with some water and mixed well. Then we suspended a balloon and took yarn that Goose cut in 6-12 inch increments, doused them with the glue wash and draped them over the balloon. We did it outside so it could drip and not cause problems.

While Goose and I worked on this, I gave Monkey a green kit to explore so he played with it a bit, putting green items in the box and taking them out.

After it was dry I hit it with a coat of spray shellac and then after that was dry Goose popped it.

Voila--our pot of gold!


This was from a few days ago, but we had gone on a scavenger walk and picked things that were green and put it in our special green bag. We then came home and glued the green things onto green paper. After it was dry we cut out shamrocks and hung them up. Pretty cute!

    We tried to do yarn bowls at Halloween and they didn't work too well for us. I think we just didn't have enough glue though. Maybe we will give it a try again, yours looks very sturdy!
