Take and Make Kits

Pick up a Take and Make Craft Bag from either library, watch the video, and then use the supplies to make your own craft.

Boho Yarn Decor
This trending wall item adds a positive self-affirmation to your home decor and has a variety of design options. Leave the yarn tassels long or short, asymmetrical or rounded. The "Have Courage" iron-on decal is optional and available in Burmese and Spanish.  
Tuesday, Jan. 18: Kits available,
Monday, Jan. 31, 6 p.m.: Video premiere on Willard's Facebook and YouTube channels

Macrame Magnet
Make a pretty macrame magnet for your fridge. We will use macrame cord to tie a lark's knot, which we learned for a previous craft, and learn a double, half-hitch knot to complete a three-row semi-circle. Then, glue a magnet on the backside to display it on your fridge.  
Tuesday, Feb. 1: Kits available from both libraries while supplies last
Monday, Feb. 14, 6 p.m.: Video premiere on Willard's Facebook and YouTube channels

Oriole Feeder
Be ready for the return of orioles in the next couple of months. This stringed platform provides a nice spot to display orange slices and the jar is perfect for holding orioles’ favorite grape jelly. While you wait for spring, you may fill the feeder with wild bird feed for wintering birds.
