Creating with woodsies @WBCL

So what do you do with boxes of small wooden pieces and about a zillion wooden beads? This was the challenge this week for the group at the Wells Branch Community Library and they took it on successfully. Some of the wood pieces were undrilled so we had to make our own connections to string them. In an aha! moment we just hot glued a bead to the top of the pieces and added them where we wanted them. 
They made necklaces, bracelets, key chains and just strings of items. Once the creation was complete the unpainted pieces got either a bit of color from markers or some individualization from glitter glue. As usual, this is a real family activity as everyone works together on the projects. 
The Family Arts & Crafts group meets at the Wells Branch Community Library every Wednesday night at 6 pm taught by Dianne Koehler. The program lets us turn donated or recyclable materials and imagination into great projects.
You may also want to take a look at the Art & crafts database the library recently subscribed to for the patrons. Check the library website for detail.
