Begin by cutting about 2 inches off of a cardboard tube. Paint it black and let it dry. Meanwhile, bend one pipe cleaner into something that looks approximately like this:
Bend the other one in mirror image. Heat up the glue gun. Line up the two pom poms and two pipe cleaners like in the photo and glue them together, then glue the whole thing to the napkin ring. Use craft glue to attach the seed beads. Done!
We did a lot more than just Trevor's tablesetting contest while we were at the fair. Top priority though was seeing how his other entries did. Here's his entry in the poster contest. First place!
The Pinewood Derby cars aren't judged in the 5-8 year old category. They just receive a participation ribbon.... unless they are selected as Judge's Favorite!
You can see a much better photo of Trevor's "Toothless" car here.
Trevor was thrilled with his Judge's Favorite, first, and third places. A very fine showing, indeed! He's entered the bulk of his art and craft projects in our local county fair, which isn't until August. So expect another fair wrap-up in about 7 weeks!
