2. Get helper to play peekaboo with box:
3. Cover said box with blue paper that has been painted over with ultramarine poster paint. Sprinkle and glue down many many many "stars" punched out from old aluminum foil.
4. Add a title using lettering stickers, using a phrase from a verse in the Bible (from Phil 2:15)...
5. Cut and paste a HUGE star cut out from cardstock, and sprintz lots of glimmer mist...
6. Fly one rocketship with a little explorer along the path of the shooting star.
|I used a flower punch to punch out shapes from shiny paper to make the "flames".|
7. Step back and admire the star...
|Supplies: Cardboard from an old Ikea box and aluminum foil,|
Cardstock (American Crafts), Thickers (Glass Slipper),
Poster paint (Ultramarine), Dewdrops (The Robin's Nest).
PS: This was how it looked before I did up the nursery window...
|The previous owner had also used the room as a nursery, but had painted this wall terra-cotta red, |
hence the matching red cardboard. I had hated how the colour had stuck out in our greenish blue walls!
Looks much better doesn't it? :) Have a great weekend!
PS: I got some of my inspiration from the book "How to catch a star" by Oliver Jeffers, which was recommended by another mum in this post.
And... the shooting star joins the paper cranes, clouds and trees that are currently in Junior J's room!
