My EC students have been making crafts for years now to sell-
We did do one craft we auctioned. We took old chairs (the school system was throwing out-due to cracks in the seat, poor stability, etc.) and cut a whole in the seat to fit a planter. I sugget a planter with a wide lip (this gives room for error when cutting). We painted some of them (splash designs. bubbles, etc.) and left some natural. We selected at least 3 plants per pot (I used plants I already had made cuttings from). We averaged $10-$12 per chair.
the only cost-the pot and potting soil-not to shabby!
We also did one with a chair/desk combo-with 2 plants-but be careful you don;t have to cut through wood.
just a thought that rang in my head..
i remember seeing on tv about how da vinci painted over his own work..
if you got the skill, somehow create a complex optical illusion but work around holes in the canvas, then further implement the illusion on another board of canvas behind it..
between the illusion and depth perception. i think that would be very attractive. yet hard to pull off..
