 Making & Celebrating

It is time again for a Craft Lightning challenge with wood! Time 15 minutes, medium wood. A group of talented crafty bloggers show their stuff, hop along to see it all, link in sidebar. My inspiration, a collection of wood hoops and birthday party season for five of our grandlittle girls! Requested  themes unicorns and princesses with lots of pink! The 8” wood hoop Unicorn would make a cute craft for the girls to make and take home as a party favor.

You will need: 8” wood hoop. 9” x 12” craft cuts of Kunin Felt Corduroy White, Coordinates Gold Dot. Felt scraps for ears, mane and cheeks. 1 yard Peapod pom pom trim White Expo International. Daisy or flower appliques. Fabri-tac Glue Beacon Adhesives. Scissors.

Insert corduroy felt into hoop. Tighten. Trim off excess. Glue pom pom trim around outside of hoop.

Cut a 2” by 4” triangle from gold dot for horn. Cut two 3” teardrops for ears from pink. Cut a 4” scallop piece for mane. Cut two 2” hearts for cheeks. Glue horn and ears at center top of hoop.

Glue on mane, cheeks and flowers. I give the little girls lots of extra flowers so they can personlize their own unicorn. Use a fabric marker or dimensional fabric paint to make eyes.

Crafting with little ones is so much fun, depending on their age a couple of helpful tips to make it the most fun and rewarding for everyone. With the younger ones I am preparing the hoop with the corduroy felt and pom pom trim glued on. They each get a little bag filled with all of the other pieces to glue on, suggesting where the horn might go but after that just encourage their own crafty style! Small bottles of glue are easier for little hands. Sharing markers and glue between each pair of children encourages working together. If one is having difficulty with the glue, help out by putting the glue on the pieces. The child can then place them. This is a quick and easy craft, make it into any animal by just changing the colors. Change the hoop size too. Crafty quick projects are the best! Hop along and Be inspired by the Craft Lighting wood challenge this month!
