Cicada Shell Craft


These pictures where taken before Christmas, but I thought I'd post them anyway...:)
They look very sweet sitting there crafting away.


About 2 months ago there was an abundance of cicada shells on the trees around our neighbourhood. My boys have gotten a nice collection of them to decorate.

They were painting them and decorating them for the Christmas tree and the nature table.

I love the sparkly ones with the glitter on them.......:)

They look like they are having fun! We did this 2 Christmas' ago, but painted them with glue the dusted with glitter. They look so effective!
