Fun with Crafts with My Mummy

Disney's Art Attack - New Host Marco Borromeo (1) - Copy

So happy last night I was playing sand on my own when my mummy asked me if I want to make some crafts. Of course my answer is YES! I love arts and crafts, you can follow me on my  Facebook Fan Page (Please make it reach 500 likes!) My mummy wanted to do this craft that I learned from Marco on Art Attack.

I love watching Art Attack every Saturday and Sunday at 12noon, on Disney Channel (Astro Ch 615). I cannot believe how Marco can create all those amazing art that looks so real. Today, my mummy wanted me to make a bowl-holder, see below how to make it. I did it together with my mummy, but I made it most myself!

How to Make A Bowl-Holder
It is to decorate a container or bowl to put tasty party food in fun looking decorated holders.

To get ready, we needed some things like these:
1) Plastic container
2) Scissors
3) Piece of card
4) Sticky tape
5) Paint
6) Paint Brush
7) PVA / White Glue
8) Old newspaper or recycled paper

First, we cut the card to wrap around the bowl, ensuring it is big enough to cover and top and bottom of the bowl/container. When it is neatly wrapped around, we tape the edges together.

Second, we take the container out and add more tape to the card to make sure it is stuck into place. We make the tube stronger by adding pieces of paper and glue it all over.

We use white recycled paper as we did not have newspapers around. We just tear and stick it all over the card.

Now we take out the paint! This is the fun part. Ichose a yellow base for the bowl-holder and started painting all over to cover the paper. We just use poster colour for this.

My mummy asked me what design I wanted to put. I decided to cover it with pretty flowers. I used a red paint to freely paint 4 flowers around the card. Flowers are usually red and my fav colour is red too. My mummy love flowers. I painted 4 flowers for each person in my small family.

After that, I decided to add some other designs with a blue edge, and green for curvy patterns. I call them leaves.  I also added outlines to the flowers I made earlier.

At every stage, we stop to let the paint dry a little before proceeding.

Once the paint is dry totally, we put the plain plastic container into it to dress it up!

Tadaa, what do you think of my first party bowl-holder? I am so proud of it, I had to show my father and all my friends. This is so fun, I love painting with my mummy!

Later, in bed I saw this Disney Channel towel, I like it so much, I asked my mumm to take a pic of me. Guess who I want to become when I grow up?
