Make a macrame bottle centerpiece April 18

Take a couple of hours this spring to make a fun centerpiece for your summer picnic table. The Fond du Lac Public Library’s Crafternoon program 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 18, will do just that; crafters will make a Hippie Macramé Bottle candleholder or vase with an upcycled wine or liquor bottle, some twine and carefully placed knots.

Crafternoon programs are free and open to adults and teens in middle school or older. All supplies provided. Space is limited. Registration is required and starts at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 4, online at, click Calendar, or by calling the Help Desk at (920) 322-3929.

Crafternoon, every third Saturday of the month, was inspired by a similar program at the New York Public Library that’s run by Maura Madden, who wrote, “Crafternoon: A Guide to Getting Artsy and Crafty with Your Friends All Year Long.”
