TROPICAL COLOURS AND A BIRD ; DIY WALL HANGING

This is a beautiful wall hanging made with simple materials ; craft paper, glue/ glue gun, newspaper and acrylic paint (preferably Pidilite).

  1. I took some sheets of old newspaper and I used the technique of papier-mâché to make the bird. Papier-mâché is shredding paper and using water to make it into a pulp and then mixing it with glue and kneading it gives a sort of clayish material which you can mold into a bird or any other thing you want.
  2. Keep the bird aside for drying and start working on the nest. I made sticks out of the remaining sheets of old newspaper and wove them into a nest-like structure and painted it with black acrylic paint. Leave it to dry.
  3. Meanwhile, I made colorful roses and leaves from craft paper, glue and scissors and painted the bird using acrylic paints.
  4. Once the paint had dried, I stuck the bird onto the nest in a way that it seemed like it was looking out of the nest. Lastly I decorated the nest by sticking the roses and leaves onto it.

This is a easy but beautiful looking craft that looks great as a wall hanging!!!
