Oh no, the crab trap got away and broke open on a deserted island! Now all the crabs are free and running around. Embellish the table at your next crab feast with a whimsical centerpiece!
Make your tray any way you like using recycled items, vacation mementoes, and craft decorations. Here’s how the centerpiece in the picture was made.
Cover a wooden craft tray with a thin layer of blue Crayola Model Magic® compound. In the center, form an island made of Model Magic.
For the crab trap, attach two berry boxes together along one side with a chenille stick. Place the trap on the island. Form a Model Magic palm tree behind the two berry boxes. Use an armature such as part of a cardboard roll for a tall tree.
Form several little red crabs out of Model Magic compound. Put them in different positions all over the island.
Use Crayola School Glue to firmly attach sea shells on the outside of the tray. Model Magic® dries to the touch overnight and dries completely in 2 to 3 days.
Decorate the scene with Crayola Glitter Glue. Air-dry the glue before you decorate for your next seafood cookout. Why not make matching napkin rings with the rest of the cardboard roll?
