I had so much fun making these crafts with my Godson. Plus I think the candle makes a lovely keepsake for his parents.
So easy to make and so inexpensive too. For the candle artwork, we bought a candle for £1, some tissue paper and wax paper. Let the children draw on the tissue paper, wrap it around the candle with wax paper over the top, then heat it up with either hairdryer or heat tool. I will be honest and say I did do a tester one and found better effects with pens rather than crayons.
The Tree was simply a square piece of paper, folded in half ( to resemble a triangle ) then simply cut towards the fold. Open up and bend over and add decorations.
We also did the Candy Cane Hearts, so had a lovely time together crafting 🙂
Hope you enjoy. And incase I don’t get a chance ” Merry Christmas ” to everyone and have a brilliant festive season 🙂
Well we gave it a go today and this was our finished result. Am so pleased that these Candy Cane Hearts were a success.
So easy to do to ! Simply heat oven, we had ours at Gas Mark 6 /7, placed the candy canes into a heart shape and popped in oven middle shelf for approx 90 seconds. Quickly moulded the canes and left to cool. Once cooled completely, melted white chocolate and poured into heart shape then added christmas sprinkles. I cheated slightly as popped them into freezer for 10 minutes to harden.
Such a fun activity to do with kids – give it a go !
Now I am all prepped for Christmas I can now enjoy the last few days crafting with my godson.
We are going to decorate a paper christmas tree, such an easy craft activity as we know most kids lose interest if its a long winded activity. All you need is paper, glue, scissors and few bits n bobs to decorate it.
We are also going to get adventurous and attempt to create a Kids Artwork Candle. This looks a lovely keepsake to create. I could not find any white candles so I have to attempt this with ivory candle, tissue paper and wax paper. The technique looks so simple so wish us luck !
Below are pictures of what we will be making and not our creations
Just in past few years these have become a big hit here in England.
This is one i did for my Godson last year. Took alot of work and pretty much every weekend for a month but i think it paid off.
Have another one to make this year, well assemble and paint this year, so looks like i will be busy for at least another 4 weekends.
Shame i did take photo of the sides as they had little gingerbread men and snowflakes on
If anyone is interested in this here are a few ideas as to what to put in
Well i am still playing around with the stamps and ink pads and slowly getting use to them and getting confident.
Decided to have a go at Santa’s Key and have to say i am impressed with my first attempt at these
The yellow key in picture is an example of how it could look painted
I find this very true…..
My blog wont be too bogged down with posts about my 3 beautiful god children, i do however have other interests which you may see me ramble or even have a moan about.
But as this is my first attempt please bear with me 🙂
