"Hanging Peanut People" kids craft

Stormy Stewart


I found this picture on better gnomes and cauldrons, but they had no directions, so I created some. These can be made as necklaces, tree ornaments, present decorations and even door bling.

This makes a wonderful school craft or after school craft. Your kids can create nice gifts for their friends or relatives.
