Help with a craft project . . .

Ok, so I'm not sure this is supposed to be posted here, but I will try. I need help with an idea for a craft for a group of ladies that will range in age from about 35-65. It needs to be something that can be done in about 3-4 hours, it can be done on 2 different days, if need be (for drying time, etc). Also, it can't be something that I will have to teach a specific skill for, like knitting, crocheting, sewing, etc. And it can't involve large tools. like a sewing machine, etc. Things we have done in the past: necklaces, bracelets, scrapbook wooden blocks, etc. Oh, and it can't be too expensive - maybe $10/person or so. TIA!

Re: Help with a craft project . . .

I always get a lot of great ideas from the Family Fun website- although that is geared more towards kids.
You could decorate journals or picture frames with things like fabric scraps, lace, fake flowers, buttons, beads, ect. http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/craft...ournal-657520/
These are pretty too- http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/craft...atcher-668786/
Or dreamcatchers
Or pretty hangers http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/craft...angers-669648/
Or you could make some herb sachets for the underwear drawer our of things like lavender and rosemary.
Or felted pincushion/paperweight http://mousechirpy-polkadotpineapple...incushion.html
Or even wool dryer balls if you can find enough wool sweaters at the thrift store- or ask them to bring their own to sacrifice.
These are cute too: http://blog.betzwhite.com/2006/10/cu...-tutorial.html
Or some fleece no-sew blankets. Maybe have people bring their own fleece to keep it cheap of get some of the $3/yd fleece from walmart. http://www.instructables.com/id/No-Sew-Fleece-Blanket/
