Origami Dragons

I have been practising some more origami. This time I was using my lovely paper to make dragons. I watched a few video tutorials to get a good idea.

Eid Henna Designs

I was at a homeschool meet up during Eid so I decided to do some henna designs on my friends, both young children and parents.  I used 2 different types of henna paste for these designs.

For Eid I also did some designs on my own hand and my mum's hand too for Eid.

Coke Bottle Cozy

I have been busy crocheting again. This time I decided to make a cozy for a coke bottle. I know it may seem crazy but I just love the shape of the coke bottle. I made this at a small crafty club I have just joined.

Fruit Art Flowers

I decided to make a work of art out of some fruit. I looked on YouTube and followed a video showing how to cut your fruit into a flower shape.  I used a peach, a pear and a strawberry for this project. It looked too pretty to eat, but it was eaten eventually.

Fairy Garden Tutorial

My little sister made a lovely fairy garden last month so I decided I would have one too.  I didn't colour in the Fairy House as she did, I actually like the natural wooden look.

Items needed:

Gardening container
Fairy House (actually a bird house)
Wooden doll furniture
Bark and pieces of wood and twigs.
Toy animals

All I did was place the fairy house into the container as it was. Then I added a wooden seat. Then an inkwell to make a small well.  Twigs were added to make a garden decoration. Some animal erasers were added to the garden.  Very simple but effective.

Below is the fairy garden my little sister made, she spent more time by painting the house in lovely bright colours and using a larger container.
