Cupid’s Arrow

Here’s another cute craft: Cupid’s Arrow.The idea was shown to us from the bright talent at 4 Cats while my daughter and I were there doing a  workshop. If you are looking for a great kid-parent activity consider their workshops. The staff is amazing.

We saw these arrows at the cash and had to come home and give them a try.

You will need:

Sharpie Markers (we used red, pink and black)

Feathers (3 or more for each arrow)

Polymer clay (we used Sculpey’s Hot pink and Red)

BBQ skewers

Tape (we used red washi tape

Shape the hearts with either a small cookie cutter or your hand. Poke the skewer in to make a hole. Remove the skewer for baking. Bake according to Sculpey’s instructions. Meanwhile, colour your skewers with the Sharpie markers. Tape three feathers to the end. Once cooked, you can glue the hearts to the end of the skewer. Glue the cooked heart to the end and voila! A beautiful present topper or add a tag and you’ll have the most creative Valentines on the planet. Happy creating!Image 7 Image 9 Image 11 Image 12

Happy New Year!

Happy 2015 from the Doodle Post!!

January 1 marks the start of a new year: 2015!

Around the world, many countries celebrate the new year with parties and fireworks. Countries under monarch rule (that have a King and/or Queen) traditionally await a speech from their leaders to hear of plans in the new year ahead.

The tradition of this speech came many years ago when countries in Europe were at War and needed to come together to pray for a safe resolution.

This month’s Doodle Post celebrates peace and brings wishes of a peaceful year ahead: Peg People for a Peaceful Year.

Once made, these people are meant to be a symbol of good leadership and peace for you, your family and friends in 2015.

Put them somewhere to remind you how lucky we are to live at a time where peace and safety are available to us. Peace be with you!

Happy creating.
