The girls have been sharing this pair of fairy wings for some time and I thought "Wouldn't it be cool if we had one more pair of beautiful wings?" As usual, buying one just didn't seem as appealing as making one, so we decided to see if we could gather materials in our house to create a pair of wings.
So, in today's Creativity 521, I'm sharing about how we made our first pair of DIY Fairy Wings and the good thing is we had all these stuff lying around at home so we didn't have to spend a single cent! Yippee!
I will also be sharing with you about this awesome craft book, The Cardboard Box Book, which will teach you and your child how to transform cardboard into imaginative creations. If you are keen to try it out, I am giving away two copies at the end of the post, so read on!
1) The Cardboard Box Book as our guide
2) Empty box
3) Pink spray paint
5) Sticky tape
6) White glossy paper
7) Pink polka dotted scrapbook paper
8) Small piece of red paper
12) Decorative butterflies/Gem stickers /Beads/Other embellishments of your choice
DIY Piggybanks - also made out of recycled materials. To make the colour more even and cover up the design on the box, I coated with three layers, leaving a 10-min interval each time to allow the paint to dry. Remember to spray on both sides so that the wings look pink from both front and back.
Now, for those of you who are keen on crafting and have some cardboard lying around in the house, check out how you can turn them into fantastic creations together with your child!
Now, just to let you have a better idea of what the book encompasses, I will showcase pages of some of my favourite projects which look really fun to make!
1) Gingerbread House
