Here are some tips for making a decorative paper heart wreath. This is really easy to make , have a go!

These wreaths look great on any door. You also don’t really need many supplies to make them. 

Here is what you need:
Craft paper strips
Mini Glue Dots or Craft Glue
Paper Trimmer/ scissors

First, cut your paper into 2 inch by 11 inch strips and fold them in half. Use any type of firm paper, it can be plain or printed paper.

Twelve strips will make an oval wreath. Eight  or  ten will make a rounder one.

Fold the strips to make a heart shape and glue. I like how this wreath uses paper with a different pattern printed on each side.

Once you have made your hearts, glue them together with a bead at each edge, leaving a space in the middle.

To hang, thread the ribbon in between two hearts using the space between the glue points and tie a knot. Repeat on the other side. Hang it and enjoy!

Here is a YouTube video showing how to make a similar wreath.

I would love to see these hanging in your bedrooms, so send me some pictures when you have done!

How to Draw a Cute Little Mini Chibi Cartoon Brown Bear Cub
Today you can learn to draw a cartoon bear. There are lots of steps but don’t worry take your time. You can use this video to help you if you prefer, remember to pause it when you need to.

Below are the step by step instructions if you get stuck.

How to Draw a Cute Little Mini Chibi Cartoon Brown Bear Cub 1
Step 1: Draw two curved lines next to each other for the cartoon bear’s eyes. Sketch lightly at first so that it’s easy to erase if you make a mistake. When you get the shape right, darken the lines and make them thick. The shape of the curved lines should be similar to a half-circle. Pay attention to the placement of the curved lines. Don’t draw them too far apart.

Step 2: Under each curved line, draw a small circle for the irises. The circle on the left should be close to the right tip of the line. The circle on the right should be close to the middle. Add a short, curved line above each eye for the bear’s eyebrows.

Step 3: Inside each iris, off to the side, draw a tiny circle to represent glare. In the middle of each iris, draw a big dot for the bear’s pupils. As you shade the pupils, don’t overlap the tiny glare circles.

Step 4: Below the eyes, slightly to the left, draw the cartoon bear’s small nose. The shape of the nose is basically a small oval.

tep 5: Below the nose, draw a wavy line for the mouth. The shape of the mouth should be similar a rounded letter w. Curve the left tip of the mouth up toward the eye to create the rest of the bear’s muzzle. Add a couple of short, curved lines under the mouth for the chin.

Step 6: High above the eyes, draw a curved line for the top of the head. As you draw the line, add a couple of jagged strokes to represent the bear’s fur. Draw a curved line on the left that’s made up of quick, short strokes for the side of the head. Draw another curved line on the right side for the other side of the head. The right side of the head should be a lot farther from the eyes than the left side.

Step 7: On the top, right side of the head, draw an arc that’s made up of quick, short strokes for the ear. Draw a few more lines within the shape for the fur inside the bear’s ear.

Step 8: Draw the bear’s ear on the left the same way. Start with an arc that’s made up of quick, short strokes. Then add the fur inside using a series of short, jagged lines.

Step 12: For the cartoon bear’s body, draw a long line that starts below the head and curves toward the foot. Add a few jagged strokes along the way for the fur. Draw a curved line to the right of the leg for the back of the body.

Step 13: Draw the other foot using another oval-like shape. Make the bottom part thinner than the top. Don’t close off the shape of the foot entirely. Add a line at the top and bottom for the bear’s leg.

How to make an origami fish

Learn how to make a very easy origami fish!

This cute paper fish is an original origami model that you can fold in only a few minutes with a 2 by 1 rectangle (half square) of paper. The model is not completely flat, the fish has a fin that goes slightly upward. Depending on the paper you use, and how well the folds are marked, you may want to put a little bit of glue at the very end so that the model does not open up too much.

Here are the step-by-step instructions to fold a Fish

Fish - step 1

1. Start with a square piece of paper.Fish - step 2

2. Fold and cut the square in order to have 2 rectangles. You can fold one fish with each rectangle.Fish - step 3

3. If the paper has only one colored side, put it on top. Fold and unfold the rectangle horizontaly and verticaly.Fish - step 4

4. Turn the model to the other side.Fish - step 5

5. Fold the two top corners.Fish - step 6

6. Unfold.Fish - step 7

7. Fold the two other corners.Fish - step 8

8. Unfold.Fish - step 9

9. Turn the model to the other side.Fish - step 10

10. Gently squeeze together the top middle point and the bottom middle point.Fish - step 11

11. Then flatten the model. You do not have to make any new folds.Fish - step 12

12. Turn the model to the left.Fish - step 13

13. Fold the two right corners. Mark the folds well.Fish - step 14

14. Turn the model to the other side.Fish - step 15

15. Fold the top right and the bottom right towards the horizontal axis. Mark the folds well.Fish - step 16

16. Unfold the two flaps under the right side of the model.Fish - step 17

17. Fold the top flap towards the left.Fish - step 18

18. Fold the bottom flap towards the left.Fish - step 19

19. Fold the left flap towards the right, and your fish is done! The flap will stay a bit upward. If the model opens up too much, you can put a little bit of glue under it.Fish - step 20

20. That was easy, wasn’t it? Then fold many more origami fishes of all colors! 🙂

I hope you like this origami fish model. It’s a very simple model with a small amounts of steps, but it looks very cute with its upward fin and its fan tail! You can fold many of them and stick them to a blue paper, hang them on your wall or window etc. If you use bright colors, it could make a very colorful room decoration for a bedroom.

Please send me pictures of your fishes

Have a great day !

Hi everyone , hope you are all well . Today we can make ‘Pet Rocks’ , I have chosen to do a Cactus Pet Rock but you can choose to do your own. Upload some pictures once you have had a go! Looking forward to seeing all your creative designs. 5 best points for the best , 3 best points for the second best! Go on , go in the garden and find a big rock!

Here’s what you need to make these Cactus Rocks

  • Rocks – choose them based on the size of your terracotta pot. A flat surface area is good for the googly eyes.
  • Googly eyes or you can draw the eyes
  • Paint – two colours if you have them
  • Mini terracotta pot or an old cup that is not needed
  • Glue

Instructions on how to make these adorable Pet Cactus rocks.

1. First, select your rocks. As mentioned above, you want to look for rocks that are flat on one side so the eyes will go on smoothly. You can even see if you can find some extra details that may give the rock a mouth.

2. Clean your rocks before painting.

3. Paint, regular acrylic paint works well. You may need to do two coats to ensure you have got complete coverage.

Once you have painted the rock, use the white to create different cactus designs!

You can do dots, hash marks, lines or stars. My favourite is the hash marks.

4. Now glue on your googly eyes! Use glue or glue dots. If you do have googly eyes draw some on with a black marker.

5. Now they are ready to go into their pots!

If you would like them to stand higher in their pots, use a little bit of paper towel or foam in the bottom of the pots.
