Match Box/Stick Ornament - Christmas Fun


Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers

How many of you collect used match box and match-sticks???
Some of us artsy crafty types do...Agree?
In fact, we hoard so many so-called "useless" stuff :)
I came up with an idea for a small workshop last Saturday particularly for Christmas and the kids totally loved it :) This week there are two DIY's in here.

I couldn't publish this post on Friday as usual and as I expected...extremely sorry for that. For the very first time, I am sharing my art class photos here. I don't usually do that...Even when I was taking classes in Dubai I hadn't done that. But I think kids would love it too to see themselves presented in my blog. So here they are...they are a small class, I started it a couple of months back in my hometown. 

If you haven't seen my first  and second DIY of this Christmas season, you should hop over HERE & HERE.

Thanks to Sigga, Poornima and Angela for linking it up with their cool Xmasy crafts :)

You can find the materials needed and the procedures in the picture tutorial below.

The First DIY

Make a hole and insert the metal wire and twist it both the sides so that it would form a loop and won't come out.

The second DIY is with used match sticks...and it's super easy imitation of a snowflake!

You could even embellish the edges with white stones to give it a dazzle and shine.

I like both projects, especially those sweet little matchbox paintings… and yes, I have a collection of them stashed away. However, my favorite photos in your post are the 2 of your proud students holding their tiny masterpieces. Blessings!
