When painting round objects, like an egg, a ball or toilet paper roll, it helps to rest it on a holder so it won’t roll off.
It also helps to ensure it stays in place and not roll around when it is drying.
Mugs and egg cartons make excellent holders 🙂
Toilet paper roll is so much fun. I don’t dispose them. I keep them and transformed them into something cute. Today, we are going to transform a TP Roll into a penguin 😀
Toilet Paper Roll Penguin
Paint the toilet paper roll black
Cut a semi-oval from a white piece of paper and paste on the TP Roll
Cut a pair of flippers from black sugar paper and paste
Paint your fingertip white and stamp it on the TP Roll as the eyes
Paste a pair of feet and draw the black of the eye. The penguin is done 😀
Let’s make a giANT today 😛 Told you not to throw those egg cartons away. They can come pretty handy for crafts 🙂
Egg carton ant
Cut an egg carton
Paint it black or red
Paste the eyes and pipe cleaners as the legs
The GIANT ant is done 😀
Babies are always so cute. Let’s do a baby chicken – a footprint chick today 😀
Paint your foot yellow
Stamp your painted footprint onto a drawing block
Paint 3 fingers and stamp onto the footprint as the wing
Add details and an extra HUGE googly eyes for the maximum cuteness effect 😀 You might want to paint the chick's feet orange instead of black. I regretted painting it black 🙁
