How to make a Newfie Flashlight

Subject: "Newfie" craft
Originally from Newfoundland, I always get a great kick out of little jokes and such that are always available back on the rock!
There was an idea that I picked up in the states a while back - that I adapted to the "Newfie" idea and I thought that I would share it with you -
"A Newfie Flashlight"
A dry twig from your garden (it's clean-up time to put those twigs to a good use)
A wooden clothespin
A small box of Matches (the old fashion kind with the little drawer)
Simply glue the box of matches to one end of the twig, the clothespin to the other, put a match in the clothespin and with a magic marker (fine tip), write "NEWFIE FLASHLIGHT" on the side of the twig and 'voila' - it's a great conversation piece for a craft show!
Hope you enjoy!
