DIY Fluffy (Frosty)- The Snowman

There can't be winter decoration without our beloved Frosty the Snowman....Right???
Here's my version of him.....
I made this "Fluffy" Frosty with my son for his school project......
Snowman
We made this one out of Shaving cream and Elmer's Glue (Fevicol can do too)......
Saw it initially at Kraftykid .....
I made mine a little differently.....
I chose a Blue construction paper as a base.....
Then I pasted a white Snowman paper outline on the blue paper to make it easy 
for my son.....
Then we just used a candy stick to spread the shaving cream and Elmer's glue 
mixture on the white cutout till we covered it completely.....
We also spread some mixture along the bottom of the paper.....
When the mixture was still wet, we inserted the hat and a nose made out 
of construction paper........
We also made a smile from peppercorns....... :)
We added some shiny buttons on the front and a patterned paper scarf........
We also added googly eyes....my son's favorite!!!
The picture of the wet snowman looked like this.....it looks really uneven....
when you are making this, remember to add the scarf in reverse, as we will bend it forward to make the scarf.....

As it dried, we were able to see a smooth form to the structure.....
When it dried completely (overnight drying required), we glued the scarf 
together.....I cut a little fringe at the edge of the scarf......
Finally, my son drew some snowflakes and white dots on the blue paper 
to show snowfall........
We loved the overall effect of our "Fluffy"- The Snowman........
My son was so proud to take this to school........
His joy made me so happy :D

DIY Kids Nursery Wall Art

Hi.....
I am a newbie to the "blog" world, having entered the scene only a few months back,
and still learning......
But, I am not new to making something beautiful.....
This applies to my crafts, but also to my little angel whom I "made" almost 6 years back..... :)
I was just browsing through his baby photos when I came accross this one....
How time flies!!!....I had even forgotten about this.....as the room looks so different after the renovations we did few years back....
Anyways, I wanted my son to enjoy his early life looking at something pretty....
Don't all moms think so???
Well, I decided to do something that would not take much time...you know how a newborn keeps the mommy on her toes!!!
I soooo wanted to paint the wall :(
But, the time crunch made me use another option.....paper decoupage!!!
With help(lots!!!)  from my little sister, I was able to finish this in two days..
( the two hour nap break, once a day :O)
My sister and I drew free- hand  figures of  Pooh, Tigger and Piglet on florescent paper to make them look more brighter and vibrant.....
Surprisingly, Piglet was the toughest to draw....I just couldn't get his "Happy Face" right
 :(  .....But, persistence always pays and finally I got Piglet as I've always known him...happy and adorable :) He still is my favorite ........

We cut the figures across their outlines and finished them with some poster colors 
and a black marker.....
I also folded a long strip ( made by joining a few smaller strips) of green paper and cut it to look like grass.....Some leftover paper from Piglet, got transformed into a few gorgeous flowers.....
I wanted the trio to look as if they were playing in a garden.....but that scene somehow looked a bit empty.....
Then, I thought of giving them some balloons to play, to fill up the area.....
Suddenly, an idea struck.....Why not make this a picture wall???
We first glued the grass and then glued Pooh, Tigger and Piglet.....
After that, we glued down the flowers, the balloon strings and the balloons.....
The bright balloons became the base for the baby pictures.....
We glued the baby pictures and then, put a fancy printed fabric border around them.....
My nursery mural was now complete....
My baby couldn't take his eyes off the wall for a long time.....
That told me- Mission Accomplished !!!!
There we were....a happy mom and a very happy baby.....
I have blurred the pictures for privacy reasons.....Sorry about that!!!
Hope you enjoyed the post.....I had fun going back to those memories again......
Have fun and thanks for visiting :)

DIY T- Shirt Painting- Ben 10

T-Shirt Painting

Hi and welcome to my post on T-Shirt Painting.......
My son is a Ben 10 fan, and he was looking for a T-shirt with Ben10 and his friends together.....
And even after scouring all the kids garment shops, we couldn't find what he wanted..... :(
He was disappointed and so, to cheer him up I decided to make him a t-shirt with Ben 10 and friends....
We bought a plain green t-shirt.....
We finalised a design of his choice from one of his coloring books.....
After tracing it on the t-shirt, I painted it with acrylic colors (Fabric colors)......
You can see it in the picture below.....

I finally outlined the whole picture with fabric color- black.....
After letting it dry for 24 hours, I ironed on the reverse to fix the colors......

I also added a little spunk to the tee by painting on the back.....
This is the design on the back......
