You can find out more about each project below. Be sure to check back next week for an updated pricing information list for ordering.

(We are currently still trying to find our most frugal options for a few of the crafts that we priced out today, so we will be updating that this week & then pricing out a new sheet next week for church. Most noteably - the pumpkin craft, the binder, and the quiet books. We are also going to be testing out the DIY canvas prints to make sure they print out the size we need, so all final selections will be ready next week as well. Thanks)

It is going to be a lot of fun! Hope to see you there!

Canning Ring Pumpkin Craft

Canning Ring Pumpkin Craft
All Day, Self-Instruction plus 2 classes
Classes: 3:00 - 4:00 & 6:00 -7:00 pm

This is a Recycled Craft Project, or Bring Your Own Supplies Project

We love the look of this craft and think it will work perfectly for sisters who have old canning rings laying around their house that they aren't using. This is the perfect fall centerpiece and is a quick, simple, and cute craft.

This is a bring your own supplies project simply because costs would be pretty high if you weren't recycling used canning rings. (Note: If you happen to have any extra rings you would like to donate to sisters who want to do the craft but don't have any rings, please volunteer on the sign-up sheet)

Supplies for the project:
- 20 regular mouth canning lids
- 3-4 cinnamon sticks or find some twigs to paint for the pumpkin stem 
- Spray paint in the color of your choice (The one pictured is a rust colored. Have also seen orange & black, but you can choose any color you like)
- orange yarn

Cost Options: You are welcome to provide all materials yourself, or we will have pricing options for the craft next week! {Note: I know we quoted $5 on the price sheet. Disregard. We are still trying to find our most frugal option for this, so check back soon!}

Recipe Binder

Tired of searching through multiple cookbooks for your favorite recipes? We are too! So we are putting together a cookbook where we can keep everything together in a little more organized manner.
