We gave these old wood slices a fun and festive makeover and don’t they just look adorable? These super cute wood slice snowman ornaments are small and lightweight and hang on the tree perfectly! They look super cute and effective and we can’t wait to make a whole snowman family for our own tree.
Here’s what we used
Acrylic paint pens
How to make our wood slice snowman ornaments.
Take your white paint and cover the front of your wood slice and then pop it aside to dry
Use your paint markers to give the snowman a face. We added two coal eyes, a little point carrot nose and a wiggly smiley mouth.
Add any additional decoration such as our foam hat, a bow, a bobble hat or whatever takes your fancy! We love using foam instead of paper as it tends to last better year after year.
Cut off a length of ribbon and tie it into a loop, glue the loop onto the back of your snowman and once dry your adorable Wood slice snowman ornaments are ready to hang and display!
It’s finally my favourite time of year; spooky season! Our Halloween crafts are in full swing and we’ve been having so much fun making some spooky homemade decor. This cute paper plate pumpkin craft is so adorable and is easy to adapt for all age groups. Each paper plate turns out completely unique which makes these pumpkins perfect for a fun Halloween display board!

How to make our paper plate pumpkin craft
First take your orange tissue paper and cut it into several small square pieces. Cover the paper plate in glue and then use the orange squares to cover the plate and give it it’s pumpkin colour.
Next it’s time to create your paper plate pumpkin’s design. Cut out the shapes of the facial features and glue them on to the front of the plate.
Finish off by cutting out a stalk and some greenery and gluing in down on the back to complete your paper plate pumpkin craft. Aren’t these just adorable?

Take your roll and chop it down to your desired height. Next take your pink card and cut out a strip the same height as your roll and wide enough to wrap completely around it. Glue the card around the roll.
From the same colour cut out two large pig ears and then cut two slightly smaller inner ears from a different shade of pink. Glue the pieces together to make the ears and then stick them in place inside the top of the roll.
Add two eyes on the front of the roll, just below the ears
Now make an oval snout and add two pink nostrils. Glue it on to the middle of the pigs face and use your marker to give the pig a mouth
Cut out a long thin strip with a point at the end to make a tail. Wrap the tail around a pencil to make it curl and then glue it onto the back of the roll to finish your pig! Isn’t he cute?
These rockin’ paper sharks are fun, easy and fast to craft and look great as part of any under the sea display or in an ocean themed room!
Here’s what you’ll need
Coloured card (blues, greys, white)
Sticker eyes (optional)
Something circular to draw around (optional)
How to make these cute rocking sharks
Start by drawing around the outside of your circular object and then cutting out your circle piece of paper and folding it in half.
Next take your white paper and cut out a shape with a straight side and then a curved edge. Glue it into position as the shark’s mouth and then trim off any excess. use a black marker to draw on some sharp pointy teeth and then colour in the space between the teeth.
Next take your coloured paper and cut out a long shark’s tail, a side fin and a large dorsal fin. glue the tail in place inside the folded circle, the dorsal fin on the top rear side of the circle and the fin on the front.
Finish off your rockin’ paper sharks by adding a fun Googly eye to each one. We just love these!
