How do we prepare for Easter? We make souvenirs with our own hands
A bright holiday associated with the resurrection of Jesus Christ is celebrated by all Christians.
Preparing for the celebration of the Holy Easter
Long before this day, we are preparing for Easter. With their hands, believers decorate the dwelling, prepare treats. Necessarily, we all make a general cleaning before the holiday. With a long fast we also prepare for Easter.
With their own hands, making Easter cakes, painting eggs, baking pies is already the business of an experienced housewife. But you can make souvenirs yourself as gifts to your relatives with your own children.
Not only offerings and treats are important on this day. Often we prepare for Easter, creating our own handicrafts that can decorate the festive table.
Such are homemade imitations of chickens. It is very important to involve children in this process. And if there are children in the family, then we are preparing for Easter, making lovely knick-knacks with our own hands with children. For example, you can get cool chick from cardboard disposable cups.
To work you need paper yellow, orange and pink flowers. You can use colored feathers. The glass itself is pasted with yellow paper. Chicken and feathers can be attached to the body. Some mimic the fluff of noodles cut from paper.
Paws make orange. They should be attached to the expanded part of the cup. Yellow circles will represent the heads of chickens. They put orange beaks on them. They are cut out in the form of rhombuses. Folded in half, they will mimic the exposed beaks of the nestlings. Eyes are made of paper or a button. You can use special items that you buy in stores, or cut them out of postcards.
You can paint chickens with pink bows, red ties or even "put on" a black tuxedo on the chick - it all depends on the manufacturer's imagination.
Souvenirs for Easter as a gift
If we prepare for the Passover together with the children, we can make our own craft in the form of a rabbit or chicken. These souvenirs will be a pleasant offering to the close people at the celebration.
You can make a nice toy from salted dough. It is important only to observe the condition: the layer of material from which the souvenir is made, should not be thicker than 7 millimeters. Therefore, it is best to manufacture the craft in stages, producing intermediate baking of the billet in the microwave oven in the defrosting mode for one minute.
That is, first make a rabbit's body and bake. To make the thing not too heavy, it is recommended to make it hollow. To do this, use, for example, a cover from deodorant, some box, which is pre-lubricated with oil. After the intermediate baking, this part can be removed.
Then the head is attached to the body. Again, the workpiece is put in a microwave for a minute. Then cut the ears, which are glued to the head. The tail and legs can also be done at this stage.
The last baking can be a little longer than the intermediate. After the craft has acquired the required strength, the product is covered with paint and varnish.
If you want to attract very small crumbs to work, when preparing for Easter, you can make your own hand-made articles from a disposable cardboard dish. It will be a bag in the form of a rabbit.
The plate is folded in half and stitched from each edge by one-third of the semicircle. At one end a piece of fur is inserted. The other is decorated with paper mustache and spout. Eyes can draw or paste cut out of paper circles. Handle for the handbag can be made from fabric or leatherette. But you can use paper. From it, you get lovely ears.
Inside the handbag put a dyed egg, candy, baked goods. To receive such a gift is pleasant, especially when you know that it was made by a child.
Rabbit-chatterbox made of cardboard
You can hang a funny figure of a rabbit on an elastic band on the wall or a lamp above the table. When you touch it, it will move its paws, like a living one. This toy-souvenir can also be presented to someone for a holiday. And if the basket is made voluminous, then it is appropriate to put a candy or a money, a cookie or a krashenku.
And if we are preparing for the Easter with our own hands, the master class will help us to cope with the task.
- The template should be converted to cardboard.
- Every detail is cut out, then painted.
- At the marked points, the punctures are made with an awl.
- Paws are applied to the body, the buttons will serve as hinges. They are sewn one to the other in pairs in each "joint", stretching the thread through the holes.
Having accumulated cardboard centers from rolls of toilet paper, you can use them in the case. After pasting on them cut out from paper figures, we get a magnificent Easter composition.
Separately, a cross and a cave are made. Doing Jesus Christ Himself is not recommended. The face of the son of God, like the saints, is only allowed to write to real artists who are trained in this and receive permission.
If desired, you can even imagine a mini-play using this craft.
