Matchbox craft DIY

Posted under Gift giving, Party

21Oct
I found these two matchboxes in my stash.
The first one above, is filled with ‘magic beans’!
I can just imagine how excited a young child would be to receive their own box of magic growing beans.
They would be just like Jack!
This matchbox, covered by a strip of a paper watercolour painting, has become the home of this wee tiny doll, as small as a baby mouse.

Here she is!
One of my kindergarten mums made one of these for every child in our class as a birthday treat.
Aren’t they joyful??
Another two fabulous, simple party bag fillers and perhaps even a party theme or two??
  • Jack and the Beanstalk
  • Thumbelina
Oh, there are just too many cute things you could do!

    Those are really creative crafts! It can be used as a follow up activity after telling the stories to them in school. Perfect for preschoolers’ imagination!

    thanks!

    i have a wool felting question and i can’t make it to your workshops!

    i want to make a very large (california king-sized sheet) sized wool felted artwork for our yoga studio. In fact, i want to make very large sized wool-felted artworks for each room in our business! (that’s 7 rooms total).

    the artworks will be hanging–likely from wooden dowels.

    how many layers of wool do i need to put down so that these will hang nicely but also not fall apart?

    i’m ridiculously ambitious. i know this about myself. :)

    anyway, i would love your insight. I’m going to make them in the coming weekends. i am *psyched*.

    much love and thank you!
