That's a marvelous and funny DIY on how to occupy children with some interesting business for an hour or so.
— small wooden beads
— pieces of felt or fabric
— paint (I use acrylic)
— curly chenille wire
I took such corks:
Make noses from beads cutting them in halves. Or take half beads.
When the paint is drying, paint the faces:
Paint the noses and cheeks pink, paint costumes:
While the cork dry, cut out cork shoes.
Make legs and prime them:
Insert the legs into the painted corks, go on with the costumes:
Make beards from the curly chenille wire, glue them:
Now the headgears.
Cut out a triangle 90 degrees with sides of 10 cm.
Fold the edge:
Well, our gnome is almost ready:
Now it's the turn Father Frost and snow Maiden. Make caps:
Add a beard and fur:
Here's what you get:
We continue to put our heroes. Cut the blue and red bead in half and glue the two handle the snow maiden, and one Santa Claus. Toothpick with red ball cut , decorate with bead and painted in gold color (it's a staff of Santa Claus).
And give Father Frost the magical winter wand:
Paint the eyes and all is done!
Wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
