Create your own Art & Crafts

I’m not going to pretend that this will not take time, however, with a little effort, and minimal investment, you’ll be creating your own birthday, Christmas, and special occasion cards, or make your own Christmas wreaths, dried flower art, and personised gifts.

Now I know what you’re thinking “I can’t draw” – here’s the thing, you don’t need to be an awesome drawer, all you need it a bit of time & patience and cheap set of watercolours and brushes.

The image you see here is of a cute baby-shower card I painted and created; from scratch. It may seem difficult, but I assure you, it’s just a matter of a bunch of circles, coloured in with paint!

We’ll keep it simple.

For cards, we’ll be making Christmas tree’s covered in snow & Snowman Teddy Bears, Moons & Stars, simple watercolour Flowers. Nothing too complex or frustrating.

Each demonstration will list the products, where to get them, and roughly how much they cost; as well as step-by-step guides, with photos, to creating your own handmade cards.

For home decorations and/or special occasion ornaments, wreaths, trinkets & knick-knacks, we’ll look to nature and to throw-away items (paper towel rolls for example), to repurpose into pretty objects and personal gifts.

Everything will be set out, step-by-step, with easy to obtain supplies, and simple to follow instructions.
