What are you going to do Mariam? Well, exactly like mentioned in the title of this blog.
I invented a functional snowman. There are more of them, but I found this one a nice one, because everyone can make this snowman:
What do you need?
1 empty clean jar
200 gram flower
200 gram sugar
1 bag vanillasugar
5 spoons raisins in a sandwichbag
1 pair of babysocks
3 buttons, I used two different kinds of colours
1 pair of eyes
Pair of scissors
Put the ingredients in the jar except for the raisins. Then close it.
Stick the doublesided tape on the edge of the top.
Take the sandwichbag of raisins, put it on top of the top, take one babysock and pull it over the top, then stick the sock.
Now you have a hat
Stick the eyes on one third of the jar, stick the buttons on the belly. Cut the other sock open, and put it on like a shawl and close it.
Stick the pompon on the part for the nose.
Optional: you can make another pompon for the hat.
Tip: stick the buttons for the belly when the jar lies so that the buttons can dry for a while, so that it will be able to stick.
Mr Snowman is ready!
Make a nice cart with the following text:
4 eggs and 200 gram butter and a little Mojito.
So, now you have the ingrediënts for a nice cake. Good luck and bon appetit!
Wrap it in nice paper and you have an original surprise for Xmas! AND: you recycled a jar into something functional.
Just like we all are, I’m very busy. The dolls know that but slowly they’ll get what they want. As soon as I have finished something, I’ll show you it to you proudly.
And here is some doll’s news:
Last week I asked for your attention for the pink monster from JB Crochet & Designs for the amigurumicontest. The outcome is that Jannie got the 14th place. Unfortunately she didn’t win, but not bad at all! On behalf of Jannie Brommer I would like to thank you for your vote and I would like to gratulate Jannie. It was the first time she attended this contest. Mrs Glamour’s pattern will be tested and will be online soon.
Bettys-Simm-Salabim made another awesome pattern too:
