Sometimes I think I have brilliant ideas, so brilliant that those crafty magazines like Family Fun and Martha Stewart should be tracking me down and begging me to bring my creative genius to their companies.
I felt that way about these milk plug rings.
Yesterday I was looking through Pinterest and saw a ring exactly like the ones we made. I mean exactly, even the same kind of beads. My first thought was that someone hacked into my computer and stole my pictures but then I realized that I am not that good of a photographer.
I next started looking around my kitchen craft room for little tiny spy cameras. I just couldn't get it through my thick skull that someone else could have the same idea as me.
Oh well, here is my unoriginal rainbow ring craft made from recycled milk plugs.
These milk plugs come from organic milk cartons. Add some Aileens Tacky glue and small colorful beads. I kinda feel bad for my husband. He doesn't even bat an eye when he finds my odd collections around the house, like a handful of these milk tabs in our change jar.
Clipping a clothespin to the ring makes it easier for little hands to hold without getting too messy. The glue will clear as it dries.
Here is the darling ring on L's hand. It was a great, simple craft for a preschoolers party.
