I followed the use of hangers and leggings. We had a good time searching for materials for the project and kaylene learnt a new word "Materials". However as I can't find pink leggings as requested by my dear kaylene (only skin and blacks we found) nor any silk artificial flowers. Our shopping loot were only pink glitter glue, some pins, a pair of scissors and super glue.
TIPS if you are lazy like me : The instructions stated to cut the leggings open and pin onto the frame. I've sqeezed the hangers into the the leggings instead! Saved the cutting and pinning part. However you'd get creases near the central of the wings as seen in the pic below.
As for the central part, instead of using artifical flowers, I used some felt cloth and made ribbon flowers to decorate the central portion. Simple but Kaylene still wowed :)
|3 days and finally the wing|
|Kaylene's favorite part : applying the glitter glue|
LESSON reminder: siblings must have the same things!!!!
Kaylene was excited coz she liked the idea of still out and playing when it was already 9.15pm. Usually we would be getting ready for bed.
The Punggol North Halloween Carnival 2010 organised by the RC was interesting with lotsa activities eg Punggol Express, scavenger hunt, balloon sculpting, musical chairs, costume contest, games, stalls selling merchandise, food like char kway teow and bo bo char char, stage performaces etc. HOWEVER, I think they'd oversold on the tickets as the whole event place was so super duper crowded! Everywhere were long queues! In the end, we only did the Punggol Express (yes we queued...) and got some goodies bag (never really queued as we got the last few bags) and headed for our own supper somewhere else. Hats off for lotsa people out there willing to (queue)3 !!!
Verdict for Halloweek :
1) Me and kid had some fun during the process even though outcome may not be as good as store bought.
2) Have a good rumage of our memory and craft box before spending time, money on project materials.
Keep Re-use, Recycle and Re-purpose in mind.
3) Would think twice about attending RC organised activities the next time !......
