Why Dilly Dilly doll? Because "lavender's blue Dilly Dilly"
An easy to make, decorative item. Here is how to make your own Dilly Dilly Dolls. Please Follow the pictures and instructions included. Doll measures 25cm.
This basic box pattern made from a square piece of card has been around for a while and once you know how to make it, you'll find it useful for all kind of gifts, especially Manly Fudge! The box demonstrated is made from a 21cm x 21cm piece of card. The base of the box is made from a square 20.5cm x 20.5cm. This will give you a finished box measuring 7.5cm x 7.5cm x 3.5cm. You can glue the box, but it will stay together without. Decorating the box is the best bit, you can use your imagination. Some of my ideas can be seen in the photographs. You could use images from comics, personalise it with a photo, cutout wrapping paper images, cut leaf shapes or just a shop bought bow. At the craft workshops Susie and I previously ran, children loved making and decorating these boxes. It's a great activity for them.
Note: Line the box with greaseproof paper if you put fudge in it.
I have found two easy Father's Day cards to make. Card designs for men seem to be limited, so I was pleased to find these and they can be used for birthday cards too. The designs can be easily adapted to suit the recipient's taste and their sartorial style Origami shirt and tie card video. Get creative with the tie, add a tie pin if you like. The second video shows you how to make a shirt origami shirt video . In the video there are dimensions for the piece of paper they are using, but I think it's a mistake and the paper should measure 26cm x 15cm. The cards are really easy, they just need your imagination.
These pretty lanterns are really easy to make you just need a few items-
Clean jars with the labels removed
Mulberry paper or tissue paper, mulberry paper is more robust
PVA glue, watered down to a ratio 1:1
Glass beads optional
Cut and bend wire with pliers to make a handle on the jar, at this point you can thread glass beads onto the wire handle to make it more decorative. Cut the paper to fit around jar with a 1cm over lap, paint the jar with the watered down PVA. Place the paper carefully onto the jar, now give the paper a coat of PVA to seal it. Leave the jar to dry. When the lantern is dry put in a tea light and hang in the garden. These lanterns are for fair weather and should not be left out in the rain.
