The girls at All Tizzies Up do love a pom pom or 700! Here is a simple easter wreath they put together using basic craft materials and a pile of pom poms!
Card and hand made pom poms
The pom pom maker.
Trace out wreath to desired size
Attach pom poms using hot glue, as close to gather as possible.
Continue until wreath is completely covered.
Attach some ribbon to the back for decoration and to hang wreath
Create a bunny face from pipe cleaners and felt.
Attach to the wreath again with hot glue.
The girls at All Tizzied Up had a busy weekend doing Easter craft. Their first creations were these cute little hand made head bands.
Mum has taken step by step photos that do all the explaining themselves.
Felt, plain headband, ribbon, scissors and pipe cleaners.
Trace around your ear shape
Do the same again with your ear centre.
Cover the head band with ribbon in your choice of colour.
Twist pipe cleaners
Once in position, glue the 2 sides of the ear together,
Add the centre
And there you have some easy bunny ears
Some other Easter themed variations.
All Tizzied Up has taught her daughters how to make these ribbon flowers just as she did when she was a kid. Very cute and pretty easy once you get the hang of it.
All you need is some ribbon (thickness will determine how big the flower head ends up being), some felt if you would like to add leaves, styrofoam ball, wooden skewer and some pipe cleaners for the stem. Step by step photos and instructions can be found by running over or clicking on the picture gallery below.
Start by folding your length of ribbon at a right angle. These ones are made with lengths of ribbon around 50cm.
Continue to fold the ribbon over itself one side at a time
You should end up with something like this!
Grab the ends and pull one side only.
Until you end up with something like this!
Secure the rosette with some hot glue or a loose stitch.
Cut ball in half,
glue to felt, to create the back of the flower.
Cut out some leaves,
glue to underside of flower. Insert skewer.
Wrap skewer with pipe cleaner for colour and texture, or you could just use a green skewer.
