My weekend resolution seemed in trouble this week as we were expecting guests but a last minute cancellation meant we could do our weekly craft. Here it is... a peacock out of some cardboard and plastic spoons. It is everything Naisha could ever have wanted in terms of colour and glitter.
Linking this to Shruti's Artsy Craftsy Challenge .
|Naisha drew this peacock on a bit of cardboard.. a bit crooked but never mind.|
|We cut it out and glued on plastic spoons. I never thought they'd hold but they did, beautifully. |
You have to be generous with the fevicol.
|Paint it blue/green/gold/glittery.. whatever you have. Naisha was too impatient to try more detailing.|
|Her favourite part.. thumb printing the peacock feathers...|
|... like this|
|Then some blue glitter|
|A yellow beak and yellow feet..|
|And of course the sequins. |
The bestest part of all - I found googly eyes, finally. (at Hypercity, Pune) So we had to use one.
|.. And it's done. It looks much better than the picture.. my photography skills leave much to be desired. |
That reflection will be the death of me.. sigh!
