Ceramic Leaf Bowl


Earlier this year I took part in a ceramics class.  I have already posted about some of the things I made, but somehow forgot about the leaf bowl one.  So this post is about the leaf bowl I made in February.  It is on display at home with some lovely pot pourri in it.

The collage below shows the steps in making the design.  I used an actual leaf to imprint the design onto the clay and then cut out the shape.  I used a plastic bowl lined with newspaper to place the clay leaves in and layer them carefully to form a bowl shape.  I love the autumn yellow colour that it became after painting it.

Harry Potter Golden Snitch Craft Tutorial


My previous post was a Harry Potter Craft, this was another one that I did at my Guides group. A Golden Snitch made from a Ferrero Rocher chocolate.

This was an easy craft, involving some printed out wings, you could use your own design and one Ferrero Roche chocolates.  You remove the small sticker, using glue stick glue on the wings and then place the sticker over the middle like shown in the photo.

The post last week was a Sorting Hat.

Harry Potter Chocolate Sorting Hat


If you don't already know, I am a Harry Potter Fan. I was so excited that my Guides group are doing Harry Potter themed events.  One of the crafts we did was make a Sorting Hat with chocolate.

To make this you need:


  • 1 Ice Cream Cone
  • Melted Chocolate
  • Optional Sprinkles
  • 1 Digestive biscuit
  • 1 Paper Cake case


1) Place the biscuit onto the paper case.
2) Place some melted chocolate onto the biscuit;
3) Then place the ice-cream cone onto the biscuit.
4) Then you pour melted chocolate all over the cone and biscuit, so it looks like a pointed hat.
5) You can add sprinkles if you wish for extra taste.

Sand Art Picture Kids Bee Happy


I recently had the chance to do some Sand Art. I have seen the Sand Art Lady at a few craft fayres I have attended with my mum but never got a chance to have a go until recently.

The lovely Lyn showed me how it works and I decided on choosing a cat from the many designs she had on her table.  I really enjoyed it and loved the finished piece of work.  I hope you like it too.

This is her Facebook business Page: https://www.facebook.com/lynbunkersandart/


The photo above shows that I have already started adding some sand and shows me taking off the paper to add more colours. You have to do it a step at a time, and you choose the design and colours you want.
