A Corny Craft for Kids!

Good morning friends! Now, I bet a good chunk of my blog readers have children or grandkids in primary school. I also bet that they volunteer from time to time in their kids classrooms. Well, here is a fun project that is easy enough to do with a room full of children and it won’t put you in the poor-house either!

DCF 1.0

I tested this craft out last night at the local library and it was a hit! Plan on 20 minutes for a child age 6-9 to make this and you will not be rushed. Here are the supplies you need and they can be found for the lowest possible price at Papermart:

Twisted Paper Cord in yellow or Ivory ($2.69 for 25 yards)

1″ Pin Backs (.60 cents for 24)

Raffia Ribbon in brown ($3.26 for 100 yard spool)

Basic craft supplies: Tacky glue, scissors, golden orange cardstock, inkpads in brown, purple, red and orange and an embossing folder with a corny texture. *Please note: I embossed the paper before I brought the supplies to class. Please watch the video to see how easy it is!

Last night during the craft one little girl asked “Did you get this at Papermart?” Hahaha, I guess I know another chunk of people watching my videos! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. What a great project!! Plenty easy enough for kids, or for nursing home residents. And pretty cheap, too! I already have most of the supplies, so I might actually do this little project. Thanks, Lindsay!!


  2. Adorable!!! Darn, only have the pin backs.


  3. Wow–awesome prices at Papermart. To save on shipping it would make sense to have a larger order. Love this craft–don’t have any grands but might make it anyway…it would be nice for Thanksgiving–there are so few Thanksgiving craft items compared to Halloween and Christmas.


  4. Wow! What a great little craft to do with kids (too bad all the ones in my household are “too old for that stuff”.) Come to think of it though, I have a few adults in the family who might like to spend some bonding time over this craft 🙂

    I especially appreciate how you included the price breakdown. I never would have thought that the prices would be sooooo good. Time to head over to Papermart’s website…


  5. Goodness, another great idea to use my paper cord. I made your pom pom for a gift topping and it turned out great. Really dressed up the gift!


  6. Adorable -great project for kids – and adults for a different look!!!! TFS Lindsay
