Hi, I'm Holly Silva and I'm a craft expert for about 15 years now. Today, I'm going to show you how to make easy kids craft decorations for their bedrooms. What I have here is, we're going to make a picture, and we're going to make a cut-out picture at that. So, what I have here, is a piece of white construction paper, you can use any size, in fact, the larger the better. A big poster board would be really cool to take up a large wall space. But what I'm going to do here is, I have some really cool blue marbled construction paper. And I'm going to cut in a wave pattern, because today, we're going to make a ducky for the wall. Now, depending on the age of your kids, you may want to do something else and you know, according to gender, if that matters. This is just an example for you. So, again, with our double stick tape, well, not again, this is the first time with the double stick tape. But I say again, just because I use it so much, that, that it's like an extension of my hand. And the more that you use double stick tape, the more that you'll see that it is in fact an extension of your hand. This is just so great. O.k., you're going to stick this at the bottom, the absolute bottom. Because you don't want anything peeking out. Because if this is going to be, if this is going to be your you know, water, you don't water to stop, because it doesn't do that. You want it to be realistic. Again, also with your figures, you don't want your figures to be floating. O.k., so, a duck, what we're going to do is, just cut out a simple, little design in the shape of a duck, oops, alright. And you have this little beak there, and round. O.k., now, there's our duck beak, oh, well, duck, it's not just a beak, it's a duck. So, we're going to slide this down through here, alright, to make sure it matches. Now, the cool thing about this is, if it's coming out the top, you're fine, but you don't want it coming out of the sides. Well, unless you know, this, it just happens to work this way, use common sense, as with everything. Use your double stick tape, once again, and stick this little guy into, onto the piece, the back piece of paper, o.k., and there we go. So, instead of black, you're going to use an orange marker. I love these markers that I use, they're Artist's Loft fundamental markers, and they're ergonomic, they're not, they're round, they actually have a triangle shape to them. I don't know, if you can really tell by that, but there's a triangle shape to them. And they're just a little bit more ergonomic. So, just color in here, and of course, don't forget that you know, his beak has a little opening. And easily, all you have to do is, just really reinforce that mark in the center, very simple, o.k., now, there's his beak. And we want to make some really sweet eyes for our duck. So, we're going to go and, this is a good spot to make our duck eyes,and there we go. And maybe, make like a nice, little, nice, little eyebrow or something, we've all got eyebrows. And then, some wings, don't forget the wings, because ducks have wings. So, I'm going to turn this around, just make sure that I see exactly where they should go. Now, they should go about, about the back, about mid-center. O.k., so, measure about, down here, just eye it, you don't have to do anything crazy, just eye it. And like that, and just some, little like that, and there we are. Some wall art ideas for our kid's rooms. I hope you enjoyed it, use your imagination and your kids are going to love it, as long as you have a good time with it. Let us know if you have any questions, we will love to help you out, see you next time.
