Decorate a Papier Mache Deer Head

Have you ever crafted with Papier Mache? I hadn’t before, though it had always been on my craft-bucket-list. So I was very excited to be asked to be part of this crafty project for the launch of Spotlight’s National Craft Month.

So armed with my Papier Mache Deer Head I set to work to create a cool deer head splashed with the kind of craft I love!

Below you will find directions for my deer head creation, but first check out the ‘Blogger Wall of Fame’. A group of Australian bloggers were challenged to decorate a deer head each using their own favourite crafting skills- how cool are all the deers, all so unique in their own way, using so many different crafty techniques.

Sew a Fabric Bookmark this Mothers Day

This Mothers Day why not make your Mum an extra special gift – one that is handmade by you! My Mum loves to read so I know that she will love this gift and appreciate the handmade sentiment that goes with it.

What I love about this little sewing project is that it is so easy to change it up and add your special style to it. Use your favourite craft or your Mum’s favourite to add an extra special touch. We used a combination of sewing with fabric, lace and appliqué. But you could use embroidery, cross-stitch, screen-printing, hand-sewing, add crochet, buttons or felt. It’s an all round crafty project.

I created this project for the Brother Australia #BrotherMakesMemories Competition – be inspired and create this Mother’s Day for the chance to WIN some amazing crafty prizes! More details here & here.
