This weeks project was a beautiful Wall Flower! The hint for the guessing game in class was "coffee and cake", because we used coffee filters, (over 600 overall for twenty girls) and a cardboard cake circle for this big, lovely 3D Wall Flower! I hand dyed the coffee filters with watered down paint, and we glued them allover an 8" cardboard cake round, the type used in cake decorating. I used a snippet of chartreuse green chiffon as a hanger, glued to the back. I think it is a lovely Spring decoration. Darling for Easter, spring, girly wall decor', a door wreath....anywhere a touch of flowery punch would be enjoyed! Even the kindergartners could do this with ease! My 5th graders loved it too!
Our Annual Fashion Show is coming up at the end of the school year!!!!! Our news letter will be coming home soon, watch for it! Each Diva needs a new pair of flip flops, any "diva" color, and she needs to bring her own hairbrush to the show! We will be making our Fashion Show t-shirt soon too! Yea!!!!!!!
This week, we celebrated one of our Diva's birthday! She was born on Feb 29th, LEAP YEAR!
Since she only has a real birthday every four years....we ate twinkies with frosting and sprinkles....and.....sang!
So we made it special with a "Birthday Cake" collage using antique wall paper, a bit of paint, and sparkle. Everyone made one in this class, and added her own birthdate! A sweet alternative to a monogram! Fun to display every year!
And....our other classes made this Darling cloud mobile with big sparkly stones as raindrops!
I love this cute little mouse beanbag! We all made this cute mouse with fun printed fabrics and stuffed him with CORN! He is poseable, and sweet, and has a handstitched mouth and really LONG eyelashes! So fun!
Well, it's been a while huh? We went speeding throught the holidays, even had some snow and ice that cancelled our last class before Christmas! (more later about a make-up of Wednesday's Class)
Anyway, I wanted to show the Darling project we are doing this week.
This is a cute little "Hot Stuffie" but it is stuffed with corn! It looks like an old fashioned Hot Water Bottle! You put it in the microwave and heat it up for a snuggly cozy buddy for these frosty days! So cute!
Next week's project is darling as well....something I have been meaning to do for a long time!!!
