Bread Art

It may not have occurred to you what all you can do with a single slice of bread. Sure, you can eat it and feed the left over, old slices to the ducks, but how about using it for creating art?

This is a good example of a simple, but tasteful craft which may even entice the children to devour more healthy food, instead of all the other fatty stuff.

It is rather simple to make; all you need is slices of bread, natural food coloring, milk, brushes and small cups.

Put 1/4 cup of milk in the cups and add a different food coloring to each until the color is to your likings. Use the brush to paint on the bread, but make sure not to get it too wet and soggy. When you are done, the bread is ready to eat, or you can toast it if you so desire.

I would never have come up with the idea of using a slice of bread for needlepoint, but someone did and turned it into a work of art. It will even last for years to come, once the bread is entirely dried out and kept in a dry environment.

There are many crafts and hobbies you can do with something as simple as bread, no matter how you slice it!
