We have had so much fun making simple Easter crafts.
We just love being Bostik bloggers. Each month a fabulous box of crafting goodies arrives with some lovely Bostik products and we are urged to get creative.
This month’s box was filled with the colours of Spring and just cheered us up no end!
Easter is in site and we embraced the pastels and set to crafting. Would you like to see what we made?
Easter wall hanging
We made a beautiful Easter wall hanging for our kitchen wall.
First of all we decided to use felt as our wall hanging base and gathered some bits we wanted to include.
Pipe cleaners are tricky to attach and we needed it to hang strongly so we used masking tape here.
The blu tack was perfect for attaching straw stalks.
The fine and wide glu pen from Bostik is so great when you want to be precise and it dries clear. It beats PVA by miles!! So much neater.
Our wall hanging was soon completed.
What else did we make?
Do you like this beautiful card made byusing clear easy to apply Bostik glue and lots of Easter-y bits and bobs. Perfect!
Well you can’t have Easter without an Easter basket. Lise fashioned the basket out of rolling paper. She used blu tack to affix the eggs to the base and used the Bostik glue to affix the cheery yellow handle. It is so cute.
Using the Bostik glue Lise attached twine to the back of a cut of card and a lovely butterfly and made me this cute inspirational card for my notice board.
In return I also took a cut of card and some Bostik glue and made my little book worm a spring inspired bookmark.
Pussy said to the Owl, ‘You elegant fowl! How charmingly sweet you sing! O let us be married! too long we have tarried: But what shall we do for a ring?’ They sailed away, for a year and a day, To the land where the Bong-tree grows
The greatest love poem of all time deserves to be celebrated this week.
I often wondered as a child what a Bong Tree would look like. With a little imagination and a small selection of pipecleaners, bead and sticks, I let my imagination flourish.
May I present the land where the bong trees grow.
Can you imagine sailing up to this the little island to get married by a turkey on a hill then dancing in the moonlight?
I think bringing poetry to life with kids is a lovely way to help them appreciate and engage with it and crafting really helps them conjure images from descriptions.
Pin for later …
