Today's Craft:
St. Patrick's Day Harp: A Lacing Project

Craft Project Directions:
To make this craft project you will need a hole punch, colored construction paper, tape, glue, scissors, and some colorful thin ribbon to lace.

To begin select a colored piece of construction paper and trace the template found at the address below onto the piece of paper you selected. You could also use your imagination to create a beautiful harp shape.

Next cut out the Harp shape.

Now take your hole puncher and punch an equal number of holes on the top of the as on the bottom. Make sure they line up vertically. Next cut a very long piece of colorful ribbon. Secure the end to the backside of the harp with a piece of tape or glue. Lace the ribbon through the holes to create a beautiful harp.

When you are finished lacing, cut the ribbon off and secure the end on the backside of the harp. Mount your harp on a colorful background piece of construction paper and maybe add a St. Patrick's Day symbol or two.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Enjoy Crafting!
