Owl Dress Up
Aug 14th, 2014 by Craftylocks

Who who who needs a great dress-up for book week at school? Two parts here to make a hootrific costume.

To make the vest and the mask you need lots of black, brown and white crepe paper. You also need some card and paper and all those things for joining them together like glue and staples.

Fold the crepe paper up, cut a strip from each color and set it aside for the mask. Then cut feather shapes from them. You will then need a piece of paper big enough to cover the wearers front.
Glue the brown and white feathers alternately round an oval shape in the middle of the paper. Put glue at the top of the feather so they will be able to flutter.
Cover the rest of the paper with black and brown feathers. You could also make this as a cape and not have the tummy section – just all brown and black feathers. Use safety pins to attach it to whatever the owl to be is wearing.
From the rolls of crepe paper cut off earlier, snip a fringe 3/4 the way into each roll.
Unroll the black crepe fringe and glue in a circle around each side of the mask to create an eye. You will need to gather the crepe paper a little for it to go round in a curve so use lots of glue so you can slide it around to the shape you want.

Glue the brown crepe fringe in the same way just slightly in from the line of the black crepe. Repeat with the white crepe fringe.
We added a circle of plain paper to tidy up the edge of the eyes before cutting the eyeholes. Staple on some elastic to fit.

Tissue Pom Pom Flower
Aug 4th, 2014 by Craftylocks

These look seriously impressive – but are seriously easy to make! You need various shades of tissue paper, a chenille stick, some scissors and a twig.

Place the sheets of tissue on top of each other. You can use any size tissue but for these flowers the sheets were cut into a square.
Fold the tissue in a concertina and secure with the chenille stick in the middle. It is important that the chenille stick is in the centre as you will end up with a lopsided flower if the sides are too uneven.
Cut the ends in a point or curve depending on the finish you want.
Fan the concertina out. Very gently pull up the first layer on one side so it sits up at a right angle. Continue to lift up each layer being careful not to tear the tissue. Repeat on the other side.
Use the tail of the chenille stick to attach the flower to a twig.
