Light up a dreary winter day with any of these five winter projects for teenagers. The winter projects include bracelets, lanterns, and water bottles for bicycles.
- Recycled jars with lids are transformed into easy to make lanterns to light up your porch and yard. The instructions are simple, and, using the food coloring, you can make these candle holders in just a few hours. Do not discard the lid. Drill tiny holes on each side of the lid, thread with picture wire, and hang the lanterns anywhere you like.
- Design bracelets for wrists and ankles using chain mail. To make chain mail bracelets, you will need two flat nose pliers, jewelry clasps, and chain mail. Making these bracelets is simple yet challenging.
- Make a bird feeder using oven bake clay and an oven safe bowl. Just make sure you poke the three holes needed to hang the bird feeder before you bake the clay.
- Use oven bake clay to create decorative flowerpots. The DYI has instructions for a small house shaped pot, but you can cut and create any shape you choose. Decorate with exterior paint, and you have flowerpots you can match to your summer décor.
- Get ready to cycling with these handlebar water bottles. The water bottles are made using recycled plastic water bottles and old socks, like the unmatched socks that hang around in the laundry. The instructions show an argyle sock, but any white or colored sock will work.
