ISO outdoor "ornament" idea


Date: Sat Nov 10 2001 - 05:19:02 PST

I hope someone may help me with an idea. The elementary art department has
been asked to make ornaments to hang at a park in town to celebrate the
town's birthday. They are due at the end of November leaving me very little
time to do this. I would like to get it done in one 40 minute art class.
Students making the ornaments are in grades 3-5. Themes need to be
Christmas, Hanukkah and Patriotic. The ornaments need to withstand the
weather so I am pretty limited. The ideas I have so far are: pinecones
spraypainted gold, decorated with beads hung with ribbon
CDs decorated with puffy paint, sequins, etc.
plastic balls that open and painted on the inside
Any other ideas? Your help is ! I have to do this with approximately 250+
