Preparations for crafting
Sets a base to the table because we like to blob the glue that drips hot glue gun or painted beyond the target. And seeks your material together.
When everything is ready, it goes! at "Frau Sabse" In the shop I have discovered a beautiful SVG file for birdhouses and birds (birdhouses, birds, sayings and much more than SVG and STL). Both 2D and 3D.
I have opened the SVG file with the software of my hobby plotter and my plotter the birdhouses for ours Spring decoration let cut.
Of course that can also be the Mr Beam who be through Air Filter II system Just as indoor is suitable, like a plotter. The cuts of plotter are similar Exactly as of the laser here I also use the folding function that makes the bend easy.
The cottages can also be cut out without further ado with the good old scissors and bend with the help of a ruler the clot tabs.
Let's go the crafting of the spring decoration
At first, you blew the cottages together, then the roof is attached. Through the input hole you get well with one to two fingers in the interior to create counter pressure when the roof is fed. We found that very practical!
On the roof area we glued colorful ice rods, as they fit (11.5 cm long) perfectly on the roof.
For the decoration of the cottage, you simply take colorful, or painted paper and lets the children decide what they want to cut out for motives and how they do them glue the birdhouse. Maybe you would like to paint them in addition?
Every birdhouse got another topic with us. You can also make it all similar - are creative, Spring decoration tinker with children is so easy and sooooo colorful! Here are created: a flower house, a rainbow house and a garden house. The garden house got grass of green paper and a fence made of small, colorful matches.
A sun, white clouds with painted raindrops and a roof in rainbow colors - that's our rainbow house.
Our flower was created from many colorful flowers with a lot of yellow, green and orange on the roof.
But what would be so beautiful, colorful birdhouses without birds?
You can easily cut out birds from paper, in the file of Mrs. Sabse you will find otherwise also birds. Or you turn - as we - colorful pipe cleaner one.I attached them to a point between body and head with hot glue.
Now the bird is missing eyes, beak, wings and legs. We glowed wobble eyes and colorful feathers, beak and legs are from yellow paper developed. The birds will adhere you, for example at the front or on top of the birdhouses.
We kept a bird inside, so it looks like he's from the Birdhouse look out. To make the cottages Stable, you can attach them to wooden blocks.
Through the ice-cream sticks styles on the roofs Otherwise, like to tilt when it stops. Simply twist two blocks with wooden glue and forcing during drying.
Use the hot glue pistol to put three adhesive points on the wooden blocks and press the house.
The DIY spring decoration is ready
Spring decoration crafting with children is beautiful, colorful, creative and makes perfect mood! The birdhouses we use as deco on the windowsill or as well Table decoration. But they have already landed in the game room more often and were integrated with in Duplo landscapes. And every visit of Grandma and Grandpa, one was given very proud!
