Simple Cowboy Hat
Mar 6th, 2013 by Craftylocks

Keep an eye out for this cowboy – you might see a bit more of him around here! If you like the look of his hat – it is a great easy one to quickly craft up.

Find a nice sturdy large piece of paper and draw a hat shape on it as pictured. To get the size right you can roughly trace around a cap for the inner circle size. Cut it out as indicated by the lighter card.
Then you push the ‘top’ of the hat up and push the brim over your head – he looks like a bit of a cowboy to me!

Dec 2nd, 2012 by Craftylocks

Watch the eyes open wide with wonder when you share this magical paper craft.

A bit of science added to a bit of craft creates some magic.

Cut out a flower shape, you can draw your own or print out the magic flower pdf.

Cut the flowers out and fold the petals in.

Drop the folded flower in a small bowl of water, folded petals up, and watch what happens. For a faster result and more impact, use warm water.

This is a lovely cup to fill with treats, we have used food coloring rather than paint to decorate the cup.

You will need a paper cup, food coloring, 2 googly eyes, a cotton wool ball and some colored card

Paint the outside of the cup with the lightest shade of food coloring. Use the cotton wool ball to dab the darker shades of food coloring on the cup.

Cut feather shapes from the card and staple to the cup.

Cut a circle from the card to make the face and glue the eyes, beak and red dangly thingy on. Glue
onto the cup.

Fill with treats!

Paper Cowboy Moustache
Nov 4th, 2012 by Craftylocks

 

This is a very easy and cute way for kids to quickly sprout a great cowboy moustache.
You need some moustache colored paper and some ribbon or string. Cut out some shapes as pictured, they do not need to be exact. Read through all the steps and you will see how they layer up.
Thread the string through the ‘handlebar’ shaped piece, this is the back of the moustache and the string or ribbon will tie around the cowboys head to hold it on. Cut some slits into the larger piece of paper and the ‘hanging down’ part of back handle bar shape.
Use a pencil to curl the paper, including the individual strips.
Glue the individual curled pieces of paper onto the back handlebar shape, and then glue the large piece on top.
As I already have lots of cowgirl type gear, all I really needed was this moustache!

Paper Bag Turkey Thanksgiving Hat
Oct 22nd, 2012 by Craftylocks

 

I am so thankful for paper bags to use in paper crafts. You can use this technique to make all sorts of hat designs as well as this cute Thanksgiving turkey hat.

You will need a square bottom paper bag and some colored card or paper.

Open the paper bag and cut down the center side fold. Glue the sides down to strengthen the hat.

Cut five circles from the colored card and cut one of them in half to become the wings.

Glue the circles together to form the body of the turkey.

Draw in the eyes and glue on the beak.

Glue the turkey to the bottom of the bag.

Check the size of the hat you need by popping it on the child’s head and make a mark.

Cut feather shapes from the card and staple in place at the top of the bag up to the head size mark.
You may need to cut the bag down if it is too long.

Collage Name
Oct 14th, 2012 by Craftylocks

It is not just an educational activity, it is fun too! Finding, cutting, assembling and gluing – lots of paper crafty fun for young children who are learning how to spell their name.

Gather together some advertising brochures, and some magazines that you do not mind sacrificing to craft – and hunt out some letters. Try and find a selection of letters and then pick out the best ones to make the name. Glue them onto some bright colored paper and use another color for a border.
