Make your own pictures with air-dried clay and dried flowers! Clay is a wonderful and meditational material to create things with. It is amazing how a lump of clay can become art with a little working. We have decorated our clay pictures with beautiful dried flowers as a memory of the halcyon days of summer. But you can also paint the clay when it has dried. You get to decide what your lump of clay will become.
Do you have an old chair that needs a little love? Find one at a flea market or second hand market if you don’t already have furniture at home that you want to upcycle. You can give the chair a fantastic makeover with pressed flowers and resin. Pick a bunch of colourful flowers that you can easily press using a flower press or a heavy book you don’t particularly care about. Then the fun starts, casting the flowers into the seat of the chair. Try using the same technique to cast a beautiful resin tray or coaster.
Create personal jewellery with pretty glass beads from Japanese label, Miyuki. With the Miyuki Tila bead series, you can create completely smooth bracelets to perfectly encircle your wrist. This is because Miyuki Tila beads are flat and have two parallel holes resulting in the smooth effect. Choose from an abundance of colours and give a bracelet or two as a gift.
Logs and stones, perfect for crafting! Perhaps there’s some stone crying out to be turned into a caterpillar and another that wants a classic boat motif? With the all-round pens, the kids can paint away and let their imaginations run wild. Also try making abstract designs with the easy-flowing pouring paints that you drip from the bottle. If the artworks are to be stored outdoors it is best to varnish them, but an adult should help with that.
Who is that hiding in the bushes? It’s the naughty rock monsters! With a little paint and imagination, you can make the craziest stone figures out there among the trees and bushes! For children, we recommend craft paint specially intended for juniors. For adults who want a more durable result, we recommend applying Outdoor Craft Paint.
Having a ball painting or painting with a ball? Both, of course! After all, it’s fun to watch balls roll around and create the art for you. Let the kids try their hand at painting their own ball paintings with acrylic paint in all the colours of the rainbow.
With shrink plastic and pens, the kids can make their own hair accessories! The fun thing about shrink plastic is that the designs shrink to one-seventh of their original size when heated in the oven. So every little detail of the kid’s beautiful drawings remains on the finished design, but now in miniature. An adult should help shrink the designs in the oven.
Do you like embroidering but wish that it could be a bit quicker? Then try embroidery with a punch needle. Punch embroidery is really fast and simple to redo if you aren’t happy with it. You just pull out the strand and start again. You can embroider from both the front and the back to create cool, fluffy 3D effects. The technique is perfect if you want to create your own handicraft and free embroider. In addition you can use up the left over yarn from other projects!
