DIY : Soft Glow Light


Posted by Merryn | Posted in Bottles, Christmas Ideas | Posted on 18-12-2011 | 4,788 views


We were privileged to be invited to dine at The Speakeasy Restaurant and Bar yesterday. The food is awesome but what caught my eyes the moment we were seated is their glow lights! I was at awe with their decor. It is all hand-made and I am telling you, this is really awesome! I finally found someone who loves craft as much as I do!

Just place a tea light candle in an empty bottle.

Stick a tape along creep paper and turn it inside out.

Place the creep paper over the bottle and there – a beautiful soft glow to illuminate the night.

I am truly amazed at Soraya’s creativity. This is only ONE out of her many craft work that I found that night. Shall share more with you as we countdown to Christmas! 😀

Silver Bird Christmas Tree Ornament

Christmas is just around the corner. Decorating for Christmas can be fun but often burns a big hole in our pocket. Let’s not burn our pockets any further and DIY our very own ornaments instead.

DIY Silver Bird Christmas Tree Ornament.

I drew the bird template on a drawing block. We recycled the hardboard that comes on the back of every drawing block.

We used that hard board to make the bird. I got the kids to use the template to draw the outline on the hard board and cut for them. The older kids cut out their own bird.

Get them to paint the bird using silver poster colour.

I cut silver paper and fold them accordion style. Read here if you don’t know what is accordion fold.

Use the folded paper as a guide to how long you’ll need to cut a slit on the bird.

Slip the paper through and spread open the wings.

Poke a tiny hole for the thread and the Silver Bird Christmas Tree Ornament is done! 🙂
