Creepy wool spider for Halloween

Please do not be frightened. This spider is only made of wool! However, she also looks deceptively real with her long, fluffy legs. And it looks more complicated than it is to make. Especially fearless boys, but also brave girls will have fun with it.

Winter snowman made of yarn for decoration

Especially at Christmas time, you see snowmen everywhere. They are sold at the Christmas markets, and in decoration stores expensive and most of the time, you can unfortunately not just walk around it, because they always smile at you much too sweet.

Fortunately, you won’t have to spend a lot of money on them in the future. You just make one yourself out of white wool and black clay paper, foam rubber or felt!

If your child is allowed to help, he or she will surely be much happier about the self-made snowman than about any from the store! You can find the detailed video instructions here. →

Tip: In the same way, you can also make a little Santa Claus out of wool only with red wool.

How to make a Snowman Yarn Decoration

Yarn or String Ball Christmas Ornaments

Yarn or String Ball Christmas Ornaments

Christmas tree decorations are such a beautiful thing, and especially ornaments can never be enough on them!

If you have a child who loves to decorate the Christmas tree, or if you have always loved to do it yourself, you surely know this. Unfortunately, ordinary Christmas tree decorations are also very expensive.

When each bauble costs more than 5 euros, Christmas tree decoration shopping soon ceases to be fun and almost drives you to financial ruin. After all, you can not decorate a tree with a ball, but they are just so beautiful.

But we have an excellent idea for you: Make the baubles yourself, or let your child do it! So you have your personal Christmas tree decorations that no one else has, and make your tree an eye-catcher.

All you need is a balloon, some wool and wallpaper paste – you can probably guess what we’re talking about. 🙂

Here you can find the entire tutorial.

Ojo de Dios - Indigenous God's Eye

Gods Eye craft with wool

Ojo de Dios – this exciting craft idea requires a bit of talent – those who don’t yet have much of it can also train it well with this. It is well known that handicrafts promote children’s skills and concentration. This project also shows why.

Untrained need a little longer for it, depending on how large this wall decoration, which is so reminiscent of the indigenous culture, should be.

But the beauty is that your child will get the hang of it after a few rounds and conjure up the work of art in no time.

Here you will find the detailed instructions.

 

Colorful Turtles with Yarn - Using God's Eye Pattern

Do you want to make something nice with your child and practice dexterity? Then such a cute turtle is just the thing. This turtle is made according to the God’s Eye weaving pattern.

All you need are a few Popsicle sticks and some wool. Googly eyes are also cute, but not a must. You can also cut the eyes out of paper or paint them on.

Your child can come up with all kinds of different patterns in the process, so never two turtles will look the same. But they are all fun.

You can easily find the instructions here.

Being a child again is what many parents also wish – when they watch their children playing and doing handicrafts.

Doing crafts together with your children will bring back the carefree feeling of your childhood, and your kids will also enjoy a helping hand and the presence of their parents.

If you haven’t done crafts in a while and don’t know precisely how best to go about it, our instructions can help you a bit. Create great crafts together and enjoy them again and again!
