Little Sis spotted some fun Hobbycraft paint your own tea light holders kits and picked one for herself and one for her brother. Little Sis chose a Paint your own Ceramic Tea Light Holder in the shape of a pumpkin, Big Brother got a Paint your own Ceramic Tea Light Holder in the shape of a skull.
Each kit came with 6 little pots of paint and a brush.
As soon as he saw them he had to paint his (yep, even before he got dressed for school).
They both did a great job and managed to stop painting before the colours got to the messy brown stage! They make great decorations, I just need to find some space to display them.
Little Sis and I made the mistake of popping into Hobbycraft this morning. It was a good mistake albeit an expensive one too. We stocked up on Halloween and Christmas crafts and couldn’t resist this Minion Duck Tape. We have a quite a stash of Duck Tape and made a simple pocket money wallet with it.
Duck Tape Minion wallet
Take an A4 sheet of paper and cover one side with strips of the Minion Duck Tape. Turn the paper over and cover the other side with a contrasting colour of Duck Tape, Big Brother chose light blue. Trim any uneven edges with scissors.
We cut our A4 sheet into two equal parts so we could make 2 wallets. Place more Duck Tape along the top and bottom, Mini Duck Tape is good for this.
Fold the bottom up and the top down until you are happy with the proportions of your wallet.
Seal the short edges with more Duck Tape in a contrasting colour if possible.
To finish off your Duck Tape Minion wallet place a couple of velcro dots to keep your money safe.
Little Sis and I headed off to the Creation Station this morning. She seems to love our weekly craft sessions as much as her brother used to. Today was about different textures.
She painted using bubble wrap.
Then made a cute cellophane fish inside a plastic bag aquarium, with baby oil and glitter to make it float around.
She added a frame decorated with sparkles to finish it off.
