Got juice pouches? There are 2 crafts for that!
Juice pouches with straws (at least one per craft)
Hot glue gun
and a cork.
First wash out your pouches and straws in soap and warm water, let air dry.
With ends “stuck” you can open the strip and stick the drink straw between. Put a dab of hot glue on the straw and press down the pouch foil. I alternated front and back of pouch and arrangement, you don’t want your pouch to look like the drink now do you? Once they are all attached, I flipped it over on the back and reinforced the back part of straw with glue as well.
Cut the pouch strips into a triangle shape. Some strips may curl. Leave curled or glue if you prefer.
Get a cork and slice it into pieces about 1/2 inch thick. Make sure one side is really flat so it could stand. Use a scissor to press a tiny opening in the center of the cork. Dab a little hot glue and stick the bottom part of the straw in the hole.
And there you have it, a juice pouch Christmas tree miniature!
Craft #2 for ornament you will need:
1 juice pouch per ornament (at least)
1 glass or plastic ball (mine was 2 1/2 inches top to bottom)
Wash and dry juice pouches.
Cut the juice pouches in 1/4 inch strips first.
Now cut off the square ends. The strips will curl some, that’s okay.
Use your scissors to curl them as you would ribbon for a gift or a party. Kids can wrap it around a kabob stick tightly and get a similar effect.
As you curl them, put them inside the ornament right off the stick or with your hands.
And there you have it. Isn’t that a nice ornament? The foil will reflect Christmas lights for a little bling!
