Canning Wind Chime: Crafting With Kids

While we were working on the apricots, I was tossing aside all the old seals, but wasn’t able to part with them just yet.  I knew that there was something that we could do… eventually.  I think it’s sort of a problem… this “saving things for some future craft…”  It makes for a lot of boxes of junk!
