DO IT YOURSELF
PURPOSE: To enable individuals to create simulated braille on ornaments or door hangers. Fabric paint applied to a precut craft foam or wooden door hanger creates a tactile image. Using a Simulated Braille Technique (see entry), a braille message can be added to the hanger. Required supplies include fabric paint in a variety of colors, wood or foam door hanger, foam shapes or other tactile pieces (numbers, letters, shapes, or designs), and a glue gun. Write a name or message on the door hanger with fabric paint in large print or using the Simulated Braille Technique. Use the glue gun to attatch the tactile decorations around the message, being careful not to smudge the message. Allow to dry overnight. TITLE: Take This All as a Gift! (in Springboard).
