Mermaids` Makings

Christmas Street

Here is our Christmas Street that we made last year.

And today we made a lovely Christmas tree out of egg cartons. The little decorations are from egg cartons as well.. these are the spots where the eggs rest. After we had decorated them I noticed that they looked like little plates. Perfect for our dollshouse. So next time I buy eggs we will make some plates. After covering them in Mod Podge they should last for a long time.

This is how we started making our Christmas Tree.

We took five egg carton pieces.. fed them through two wooden sticks and for the stand we used a cotton reel.

I did not have any old ones, so I used a new one.

And then we coloured the decorations and stuck them on the tree.

We did not have to colour the tree itself  because the egg box was green already.

      Hehee.. tead, ma tegelt ootasin seda kysimust. Joonistustega on kyll jama.. neid ma olen ikka ära visanud ja m apole veel välja mõelnud, kuidas neid säilitada, mis järgi jäävad. Praegu on niisama karbis. Aga meisterdamise asju meil palju pole. Ma olen ära pannud ainult maod :D ja vist midagi oli veel. Võtsin yhe kasti, kuhu panen asjad, mida hetkle ei kasuta. Aga teised on kas riiulite või aknalaudade peal. Nendega saab kogu aeg mängida. Suure planeedi tahtsin ka ära panna aga tüdruk täna mängis selle ja põhjapõtradega.. Nii ta siis seisab jõulukuuse kõrval :)
      Tegelikult me mõned asjad teeme ringi ka. Olenevalt tujust ja mängu iseloomust ja asja vastupidavusest.
      Selline lugu.

    I like the street. I am looking for ideas for decorations that can be eaten by our little one, he is everywhere at the moment. Maybe I could make something similar in fabric….
