I love putting hairbands on my little diva with her afro. So she has tons of hairbands as when ever i see a cute hairband my palm just itches to buy it. And my little diva loves choosing a hairband to wear with her outfits. I always have a problem as the hairbands have flowers on them and when i put it in the hair accessories containers the flowers or embellishments gets all creased up and makes it look less attractive. So then i decided to make a display where i can hang up the bands and display it. This transpired in my idea for the wall art to display my divas hairbands.
What you need:
- Plywood cut out shapes ( i collected butterflies and flowers but any prefered shape will do)
- Mini wooden pegs
- Craft paint
- Paint brush
- Craft glue
- heavy duty 2 way tape
Paint your shape with the colours of your choice, I used purple and pink. and let dry. Once the paint is dried you can glue on the mini wooden pegs ( find these normally in craft shops, though if you are using bigger shapes you could opt for normal wooden pegs) I bought these mini pegs ages ago when my diva was a tiny baby. I liked the cute embelishments it had on. I thought it would come in handy some day.
Then cut the 2 way tape to size and stick it on the back and stick it to the wall where you want it. When it is sturdy then you can add the headbands.
I am still deciding to have it only butterflies in a rowOr alternate butterflies and flowers.Edited: i finally put up all the wall decor hairband holders.
For my divas birthday she got this doll From Aunty Tarryn, that’s whole body can be coloured in and then you can wash the doll again to clean it and then store it for another days fun of colouring in. She loved the doll and i love the use and re-use ability of this doll.
this weekends Saterday photo challange was the word loud: So loud was my diva screethicng at the top of her voice for no apparent reason just because she can.The Sunday callange was animal: My and my diva went to the Kinderplaas Zoo and had an absolute blast. I promise to post the full story soon. All the animals are so tame that you can go right up close and personal to them. Love the little bunny that was sitting next to his little house.
Yesterday the photo challange was pretty patterns. I always like to turn ordinary things into looking extra ordinary so always look around the house. and I took my diva’s xylophone.
December ’11 i had a brilliant idea to incorporate My diva into the presents. I decided to buy plain paper and let her paint on it to make our very own wrapping paper that we can wrap the families gifts in. It was a huge hit with all the family members. And we have now for the whole of 2012 been doing this. I have bought a roll of plain white paper. and depending on what my divas preference of craft things is has made wrapping paper. Last week we went to a birthday party and she decorated the paper with glue glitter and feathers. this week we are going to another birthday party and i decided to do painting a bit differently. I recycled and reused some old underarm roll on containers. I cleaned out the container and threw in some craft paint. It had a easy handle to grip. and all she needed to do was roll the container over the page. was actually the cleanest form of painting he have done thus far. I used pink and purple paint on the sheet of white paper. Its best for the paint to be a bit runny. For an easier application.
It was definately a new experience for her to paint like this but she loved it.
Well i helped to draw the flowers. And once she felt she had drawn enough we let it dry. and then wrapped the present.
