Any ideas for craft projects using reflective mylar paper?

by Deb
I help an adult autistic group with projects and wondered if maybe pieces could be used
to make a mosaic, etc. At least no one would get hurt cutting it up. Thanks

    You could use mylar for that, or use it to make kaleidoscopes, for the mirrors.

    I just thought of another one! If you attach the mylar sheet to a backing so that there are "waves" in it instead of lying flat, you have funhouse mirrors.

    Try cutting into various pieces and let your group just have fun creating there own pictures if they can.

    My granddaughter and I made tabourines out of paper plates with a few beads/beans/buttons, whatever, inside to make a sound inside two plates sandwiched together, then decorated. This was done at an activity booth at a local music festival. I used mylar pieces on mine and it looks really neat, and I have hung both mine and my granddaughter's as decorations. A nice memory of a fun day together.

    I would like to see if there are any other options that maybe we haven't thought of. Thanks

    They have sets of coasters at most Dollar trees. You could use the mylar pieces to cover them. Coat them with some Modge Podge. My opinion is that it would be an improvement. HA! You could also cover picture frames. I would precut strips. Folding and weaving them is another option. I hope this helps give you some help.

    roll beads, strips over straws and glue ends. string together. Quilt pieces into wallpaper.
