Caravec – Cottageon A375

This is kind of a model of a car that I have designed taking inspiration from caravans and other various types of cars found nowadays. Materials used in making this are popsicle sticks, cardboard, a broken toy car/truck (or if you don’t have any way to get a broken toy car/truck you can make wheels using a paper stick/ any other stick and bottle caps AND then you can make the other parts of the cars using cardboard, glue and popsicle sticks), acrylic paint (preferably Pidilite), a cutting blade, transparent plastic sheet (optional- to make windows), Fevicol, some creative ideas and lots of patience!

Unlike I usually do with crafts, this time I’m not going to be giving steps to make this model because in this there is a lot of scope for creativity, you can make the model that you want, you can design it your own way (I will suggest you to first draw the idea in your head on a piece of paper and then start making it). Once you are done making your model, give it a nice colour (I have used metallic colours for my model). After the paint dries off, take a piece of paper and create a name for your car model as well as a company in case you want to make more creative cars and design a logo as well! I combined two words to make the name of the company ; car + avec. Avec= with in French, therefore the name becomes Caravec meaning car with. Then, I named the car Cottageon A375 after it’s design which looks like a cottage on top of pickup car and just added a few numbers and a letter for effect.

After the paint dries, your model is ready!!!



This is a DIY Home D├ęcor Wall Hanging made with simple materials easily available at home- empty cardboard of masking/duct tapes (3), Fevicryl paints/ Glass paints, a wire/ string, Fevicol and cardboard.

  1. Take the empty tape rolls and paint them silver using Fevicryl Paints and leave it to dry. Meanwhile cut out 3 circles from a piece of cardboard (the 3 circles should be of the same perimeter as the perimeter of the empty tape rolls) and make a hole in the center of the cardboard circles.
  2. Paint the circles black. Once dry, take the 3 empty tape rolls and glue the cardboard circles on the top.
  3. Take your glass paints and use the outliner to draw flowers, leaves, etc. and fill in the colours using glass paints or Fevicryl paints (I would suggest using glass paints since they give a better effect). Leave it to dry.
  4. Take a piece of string or wire (black in colour but if you do not have black coloured wire you can paint it) and pass it through the holes made in the carboard circles. Tie knot above and under each segment at equal distance to hold the segment in place (segment= painted empty tape rolls + painted carboard circles). Put a spot of Fevicol if needed. Leave it to dry.
  5. Lastly, add finishing touches. Your craft is ready!

This is a simple sketch of a common scene seen in India at riverbanks; women washing clothes. I have taken the idea from the book : Grade Examinations – Drawing Made Easy by Navneet. Well, best part is the way the image has been adapted as a drawing!!!



This is a painting done using Fevicryl Paints, and craft paper. The main idea behind doing such a painting was to see the combination of beautiful hibiscus flowers done on a paper with a nice texture. The small square texture was made by weaving rows of hard black-coloured craft paper on which I painted the flowers and leaves. It looks really nice, doesn’t it?
