Cool Winter DIY Craft Projects
The Balls Of Yarn
Yarn is a pure winter product and as much as I love making these balls, I am sure you will love this Cool Winter DIY Craft Projects too. Ask your kids to borrow these from their grannies, for some crafty work. The kids are going to love this, because you need balloons to make the balls of yarn. Blow the balloon, put some glue all around and warp yarn in a messy style around it. Let it dry, and carefully burst the balloon and the ball is all set.
The Penguin Water Bottle
Disposing of the plastic water bottles? Wait; Why not make cute little penguins for the winters? Stuff a lot of cotton inside the bottle to give the body of the penguin a prerequisite shape. Now, take black craft paper to make the wings, and head, while a yellow craft paper will make the nose of the cute little animal. You can use buttons or beads to make the eyes of the animal.
The Flower Bucket
To make this, you will need plastic water cups. Draw an outline of a sunflower on it and then cut accordingly. Paint it in the color of your choice and make a beautiful handle to it, by either using silver foil paper from your kitchen or craft foam papers.
Snowflakes With Ice Cream Sticks
Isn’t this the easiest DIY craft projects for kids? You just need sticks, glue and some white color paint. Arrange them in a snowflake manner and stick them. Paint them white and put them under glowing light!
Mini Christmas Trees
You will need those decorate thermocol plates, some beads and long toothpick sticks for this. Cut the plates to make it look like a broad ice cream cone and then insert the long stick in the middle. Your mini trees are ready. Use beads on the top of the tree and for other decorations!
A Glittery Snow Globe For Your Soft Toy
How nice would the globe look full of snow? While that is not possible in real life, get it for your favorite toy. You will need a mason jar, glitters, water resistant glue and some water. Stick the toy on the lid of the jar. Put some glitter in the corners of the jar and fill water in the jar. Close the jar and turn it upside down!
Take the metal strings and white and blue beads to make this. String all beads together in the string in the shape of a snowflake by combining white and blue as per your taste.
The Glittering Snowman Wreath
Use the wall string lights to make this wreath. Tie it in the shape of a big eight, and add all the decorative items to it. A nicely printed scarf and a few pompoms along with a number of pine tree leaves would be just enough to make this Cool Winter DIY Craft Projects magical. Light it and see the magic!
Use the Ball of yarn trick to make the top and bottom of the snowman – one big and the other small. Now use glitter and starred foam craft papers to make the rest of the clothing – Scarf and hat. Take black buttons to decorate the rest of the snowman. Take tree sticks to make hands of the man! Thinking of getting over with christmas without having fun with snowman is a punishable offense.
So, collect all this material. None of them require any such material that is sharp and may be harmful for the kid Get going and have some quality time spent with your kids while they have some interesting stuff to take back to school after the winter break!
