The theme for this month’s Bostik Bloggers craft activity is Easter, and the box that arrived in the post was full of lovely colourful bits and pieces for me to get creative with.
I really loved making the Valentine’s wreath last month, and it’s been lovely having it hanging up in the hallway. So I decided to go with another craft activity that I could display at home to brighten things up a bit.
After digging through the box of crafting supplies I came up with the idea of making some colourful Easter themed pictures that I could frame and either hang in the hallway or put up on the mantelpiece in the lounge.
If you fancy getting creative and making some Easter decorations for your home, then take a look at my simple framed pictures.
Here’s what you need:
- Coloured card
- Patterned fabric or paper
- Easter themed foam shapes
The first thing you need to do is cut your coloured card to the right size to fit in your frames.
I generally find the easiest way to do this is to take the glass out of the frame and then draw around it onto the card.
Next get your Easter themed foam shapes (I used a bunny and an egg) and stick them on to the back of the patterned fabric or paper.
If you don’t have foam shapes you can always draw some Easter shapes onto some cardboard and use that instead. You just want something thicker than paper ideally, so that it stands out a bit when you stick it to your coloured card.
Once the glue has dried, trim the excess fabric/paper from around your foam shapes.
Glue the shapes on to the middle of your pieces of coloured card.
You can just normal glue, or do what I did and use glue dots which are just so quick and simple for these kinds of crafts.
If you really want your shapes to stand out from the background you could use sticky foam pads instead.
Then it’s just a case of popping your finished picture into the frame.
What I really love about this craft is that there are some many different looks you could create depending on what shape you pick and the colours and patterns that you choose.
What Easter shape would you pick if you made one of these?
I was sent a box of craft materials to create this post, but all words, opinions and creations are my own.
