Elastic Ring

By General Crafts Contributor Melissa, from the blog MeloMomma.

With fall approaching and school starting, there are a lot of activities going on. This project can be done during an afternoon, and will be a nice addition to your jewelry box or dress-up clothes! Also this is a great way to add some of your favorite beads or buttons into your jewelry.

What you will need:


String the beads as desired. I love adding extra flare by adding a button!

When typing the knot make sure to use a very strong technique such as a lariat loop or a bowline.

Melting the plastic together does not work. You must just a strong tie.

Face Masks

Face masks are in high demand and supplies are low. This pattern creates a homemade mask that is based on the disposable surgical mask. The CDC recommends a N95 filtration mask to fight the coronavirus. These masks are NOT a substitute for those masks. However, since supplies are low, homemade masks are being used for personal protective equipment. Additionally, if you need to go outside, wearing your own mask will remind you not to touch your face. Made of 100% cotton, these masks can be thrown into the washing machine to re-sterilize.
