MADE BY KIDS - FOR KIDS
We have collected some very simple and home based crafts that is not complicated - just as simple as they look. Recycle left-over materials you have at home or pick nature’s goodies outdoors and let the kids use their imagination, have fun and who really cares about look, right?!
THE CHRISTMAS ROLLER COASTER
The most popular gift you can give to anyone is always made of clay right?
No one will be disappointed this year either.
A classic coaster for all your events ahead.
Still haven’t figure out what to do with your old match boxes. Still haven’t found your Christmas tree minimalistic look?
Good for you.
Paint, glue boxes, but most important- the minimalistic touch.
CHRISTMAS SUPER STAR
Are you also bored of your Christmas star? Does it feels all 1998 to you?
Some water colors is all you need.
It´s all up to you- how high your ambitions are.
This is the future. Congrats this is your time to shine.
Are you feeling you have a great Christmas spirit but only a pipe cleaner and some pearls?
Well its all you need really. You think you need to be at least 18 y to do this pretty snow flakes right? But it actually works from when you are like 2y.
Here you have the opportunity to go different ways. Either the Christmas card way or
the more decorative way. its your difficult decision you know.
Already eaten up a Chocolate box? Good for you!
Old crayons laying around looking at you?
The perfect gift if you love both art and Chocolate.
This is really your chance to find you Christmas tree personality.
Whatever you got at home that feels zen and inspiring it can be your spiritually tree.
Pasta, barbecue sticks, card boards, buttons-
De sign or The Sign of who you are. (as a Christmas tree.)
DON´T STOP THE MUSIC
Do you also want to have the sound of beautiful music around you like all the time. Or do you just not pull off any instrument and feeling sad? Congrats, now you have the chance for revenge! Now you can make your own MARACA. (the coolest instrument name ever).
All you need is paper roles, pearls, rice or whatever that has a great sound, and some tape. Fill the paper roles with your pearls, cover the ends with tape, paint it in beautiful colors and put on some decos ( I do not know, maybe you have a cool unique sticker collection, we sadly don´t)
And play like there is no tomorrow
So- biggest problem except from that you need a store where you can buy soap pulp material (in sweden we have crafts stores) is that you need to have a steady hand.
We used old paper boxes like left over milk cartons for fillers (obs not for your face) . Let it dry and…
shape as you like. I mean you know we love rocks so we wanted something rocky you know. This is probably the most cool (and clean) gift you can give to someone.
CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS DELUXE
You need clay and paint - not a land hockey stick.
We use clay that dries overnight and then we paint. I know these looks like we bought them. Sorry to fool ya- we made those. It´s unbelievable really.
Tree in a tree- meta right?
The perfect gift to grandma or grandpa OR to yourself.
You need some cardboard, paint and of course the secret that make this piece so unique- chili peppers. But I mean- you only have basil or pepper- good for you.
Red hot chili peppers called and wanted one. I said no- you are not hot any more- I am.
STICKY TREE CARD
Still eating ice cream? Or did you saved some from summer? This is your chance to finally use them.
Paint paint and paint them.
Glue glue glue them on a paper.
It´s all about decoration and accessories dear.
MATCHES TREE CARD
Do you tell your kids not to play with matches? Well time for a change my friend. This is you chance to stand out around among all the boring christmas cards collection out there.
You need to have paint (always put 10% of your salary on paint ok?) and matches. It could be nice first to draw a christmas tree on paper, just to remember how a christmas tree looks like. Let it dry and dip the ends in preferable ball colors you like.
Tada, of course you can use glitter or wattevvehh. (we did not put our salary on glitter this month) It is your christmas card, I do not want to tell you does and dont´s. Merry x mas
ROCK N ROLL - ANIMALS
Speaking of rocks- you can never collect too many right?
You need stones but also- imagination. So pls borrow a kid if you don´t have any.
Well this is a great story about a frog and her friends. However I mean these are also great for allergic people who really want animals. The possible use of these are endless really.
Just when you thought you were so trendy wearing the penne pasta necklace! So sorry but that is so last year. This year the more minimalistic arty popcorn necklace is the trend of the trends.
All you need is needle and thread and of course some popcorn. Hard part not to eat them all up. We suggest ju make a small bowl for necklace and a big bowl for you to eat.
Fits e v e r y single outfit. You are welcome.
Do you also like to pick up stones on your ordinary walks?
Do you also like to have fruits around you?
This is your chance to make forever fruits. Put on your fruit shape glasses, go out- look for fruit shaped stones- paint them and…
You will have forever fruits that will never ever go bad!! Ok they won’t taste so good but really, are you that fastidious? Go have a lemon then please, you sour man.
DAMN PRETTY CRAYONS
Are you also tired of broken old crayons everywhere you go? Do you also feel bored just looking at them? Do you or a friend own an oven? This is for you!
Put them in muffin pan, in the oven for 5-10 min 200degrees- let them get cold. BAM you have crayons you actually wanna have as decorations in you christmas three!
AND you also have the perfect give away gift. Maybe you work as an influencer, maybe not but this is something you really wanna give to someone right?
SPIDER WOMEN, SPIDER MEN OR NO GENDER SPIDERS
All you need is to eat a lot of ice cream to get some sticks. Thereafter paint and glue.
As head we use painted stones but I guess you do not need a picture of stones, I think you remember how those looks like. (Or not google it!). I know spiders have 8 legs but we like to be different ok.
You know people with phobia actually use these in therapy. (Or they should)
ICE CREAM BAR
Do you also have cravings for ice cream? GOOD for you!!
Cause now you can make your own fat free and drop free ice cream. All you need is save the sticks- paint some papers and congrats, now you can have ice cream every day!
This bar is really something, right? Use it instead of flowers on the table, invite your friends for the party of the year.
Do you have old sheets? Lucky you!!!
Now you have the chance to use it as a decorative table cloth instead. Magic you say? Maybe I say.
You do not have to study pattern making to do this but please do your very best. Your guests will probably want to buy it, do not go too cheap here. (My suggestion is around 1000 euros but it is up tp you) Do not forget it is a lot of work behind.
Not if are you afraid of big animals.
All you need is this and some knowledge about horses, of course. Remove the whole bottom of the box to make it easier to run. From the bottom you can cut out the horse head.
Make sure your horse won’t run away by asking a friend you trust to watch it for you.
NON ADULT SWING
Box, scissor and thread is all you need (in life really).
Make sure to make space for the long legged ones. Everyone should be able to be swingers, right?
Tada, hang in there swingers!!!
