Earlier on we made some adorable kawaii bunny cards to celebrate Easter. I absolutely loved them so my son and I decided to adapt them to make this cute kawaii bunny craft to frame and hang in his sister’s bedroom (which we are in the process of decorating). They look adorable and the fact that her big brother helped make them makes them all the more cute! why not make some to decorate with or gift?
You will need:
To start you will need to take your white card and cut out your bunny shape. The easiest way to make your bunny is to draw an egg shape for the face, then add on two elongated ears. Don’t worry about messy lines as you can use this as the back of your bunny! (Once my scanner is up and running I will upload a template to make this step even easier – watch this space!)
Once you have cut out your bunny face shape, mount it on to your chosen colour backing paper/card. Then cut out and stick down two coloured ovals to make the inner ears.
Now to make your eyes. The eyes shown above are the easiest to make. To make the big cute open one, cut out a black circle then add a white circle and then another slightly smaller white circle to make the light spots. To make the happy squinting eyes, cut out three rounded strips and glue them into a triangular shape as above.
Glue down your eyes and then from your black paper, cut out a number 3 shape to make the mouth.
Cut out two pink ovals to make the rosy cheeks and then optionally cut out an hourglass shape and a circle to make a bow. Glue down your pieces and your super cute kawaii bunny craft is finished! Don’t they look adorable?
The last few days we’ve been busy trying to come up with some sweet and simple crafts that are really easy for children to make at home. With the current situation most of us are spending pretty much all of our time at home and when its rains and pours, most of that time is indoors. Crafting is a really fun way for children to pass some time and even if its not your cup of tea, these crafts are really simple, straighforward and easy to make – just like this super cute and simple Easter chick collage!
You will need
Coloured paper (yellow, green and orange)
To make the body you’ll need to cut out two yellow circles; one slightly smaller than the other. To get good sizings we drew around the outside of a roll of sellotape for the body and then around the inside for the head. Glue your two circles down in position overlapping slightly as you can see in the picture above.
Cut out an orange triangle for the beak and two curvy tridents for the legs and feet. Glue your pieces down in place.
Glue down a googly eye on the head circle of your Easter chick. Now take your marker and use it to draw on a U shaped wing.
Take your ribbon and tie it in to a bow. Glue your bow down in place where your body circle meets the head circle. Finish off by cutting out a green tuft of grass and gluing it on to your picture. You could even go on to draw on some flowers and some butterflies or bumble bees!
As a mother there is no amount of money that can buy you a gift so cherished as one made by your child. This little DIY mothers day frame is really sweet and straightforward to make and it looks great at home or on an office desk. So why not share the love this mothers day with this easy DIY craft.
You will need
Paint and paintbrush
4 thick popsicle sticks
White and Coloured Paper
Glue gun/strong glue
Start off by painting your popsicle sticks in your chosen colours. We used light pink and light purple. When you’ve finished, pop your sticks aside to dry.
Whilst your sticks are drying you can make the decorations for your frame. To make the hearts put two coloured pieces of paper together and cut a heart shape out of them. cutting both at the same time will give you two equal size and shape hearts. Fold both your hearts In half. Glue one half of one heart to one half of the other. This should give you the t shape that you can see above. You’ll need to make two of these.
To make the daisies, cut out a white flower and then glue a yellow circle in the centre. You’ll need two daisies.
Once your sticks are dry glue them into a square as you can see above.
Add your little handmade decorations to the corners and optionally write a message on your frame. finish off your frame by cutting out a picture and gluing it to the back of your frame. Now all thats left is to do is gift your creation to a special someone!
