Winter Wonderland Tutorial By DT Priya

Hello Crafty Friends,

We've reached the last month of the year and what a beautiful theme we have for the christmas season here at Rainbow Craftykari blog.

 

I'm Priya with you today with a picture tutorial of my project "Winter Wonderland" 
This is what I've made:

 

 

So let's start the tutorial...

 

Step 1:
I started with making the base for this. I have a lot of thermocol pieces in various shapes and sizes so I decided to make the base with them. Here are the two pieces with which I made the base. 

 

 


Step 2:

I cut the circular piece into half and glued it to the rectangle base like this.




Step 3:

Now I cut a piece of gauze and dipped it in white gesso and adhered on the top part of the half circle. My idea here is to make some effect of melting ice dripping from the roof. After this you can choose to paint the whole with white chalk paint. I did not do it as I'm going to cover the whole surface.




Step 4:

Now I'm going to make the christmas trees. For this I used bottle cleaning brush and cut them into half, colored them and added gesso to give the look of ice on them. For two of them I adhered wooden slices on the base with the help of glue gun and rest two I fixed in the front. You can see the difference in the texture of the trees. It is because I used two brushes one is new one is used and old one. I'll recommend to use new one to get better result. Pictures of all these steps are below.











Step 5:
I fixed two trees at different heights in front. For this I used a small piece of thermocol as the base for the tree attached below. I attached two foam silver stars on the top of both the trees here. Picture follows...





Step 6:

Now I had these pine cones which I collected from our trip to Shimla. These are excellent pieces to use in any craft project. I picked one and brushed white gesso on it and attached to my base beside the Christmas tree.






Step 7:

Now I covered the base with green moss. For this I used Tacky glue and it looked really nice and green. And attached two bells on to one side of the roof.




So, it looked like this after this step is done. Then I went on to add some snow for which I used this... Polyester that is used to stuff the stuffed toys.




Now it's time to decorate this wonderland and add some color. I opted to do some quilling pieces for this.




Step 8:

As you can see in the picture, I used 3mm and 5mm white strips, 5mm Red strips and Black 3mm strips, quilling tool and white glue.

I made a few white and red berries first and here are the dimensions. As you can see I have already made little domes out of the quilled circles. I made them with 3mm strips only and used 2 strips for each big dome and 1 strip for each small dome. Here I have shown the picture of flower wire which is going to be the pedicel for the buds here.



Now I cut the wire and made the bunch of berries as shown in the picture below.






After placing the wire into one dome, I sealed it adhering the other half of the dome.








After making it into a bunch, I attached few leaves from my plant to make it look more attractive and also brushed some white gesso here.




Step 9:

Now I decided to make a snowman and ended up making two. The dimensions are same for both, difference is the strips used; one is made with 3 mm and the other with 5mm.









Their scarf was made out of 5 mm strips just one wrap around the neck and glued in front and back.


Step 10: Now onto our favorite Santa Claus. He looks like this once finished.


The dimensions



For his hair and beard, I used 3mm strips cut into small pieces and curled them. Then I attached them onto it's head like this...




Step 11:

Now I arranged all the pieces on the base and sprinkled some glitter here and there. My Wonderland is ready. Some more pictures...

Diwali Lamp Inspiration by DT Priya Mishra

Hello Crafty Friends,

 

Priya here today with an Inspiration post for you. 

 

Today I'm going to share a Lamp. This is Diwali month and you all must be busy decorating your house. Then why not something handmade, quick and attractive. 

 

Here's my project...

 



 

 

Well, it was not very quick but I had fun making it. No, I have not followed any cutting files for this, made my own drawing here. Used a lot of things from my stash and a lot of new things too.

 

 

 

These are the materials I used to make this and I listed the same at the end of the post. So, for this first, I drew the outline of the lamp on a piece of paper and traced the same on the patterned paper. Then I cut out the unnecessary parts and attached vellum on the window panels. Then I assembled the lamp. 

 

After the upper part is done, I used a thermocol sheet to make the base of the lamp, so that it can stand properly. I cut it in a hexagon shape and attached cardstock on both sides to give it more strength. Then I attached the empty aluminium foil roll into it and covered the whole part with patterned paper. Then for attaching the lamp also I cut a small thermocol sheet and covered it with patterned paper and attached it to the tissue roll. Once the base is dried completely and looked firm, I attached the lamp on it.

 

Here, You can keep it unattached and adhere a tea light on it also. I'm planning to do that in future.

 

Then I attached laces on the borders to make it look more attractive, also attached some flowers which are from the store. Some leaf die cuts here and there and my lamp is ready.
