Wappu time is fun in Finland - it's similar to carnival in other countries. We celebrate it on 1.5. and the eve before. For Wappu it's fun to make special decorations. I think yeasts are fun (you may have noticed while reading my blog :)), so I painted a couple of styrofoam balls and put them on a head band. Of course the balls can be decorated as anything. They can be painted with one or more colors, as other type of creatures or make your own glitter balls by glueing glitter on them. Then they can be your own handmade disco balls!
The yeast's expression was drawn with a black pen. The eyes were first drawn on cardboard. That way, the eyes pop out a bit more.
The attachment is quite simple. I just twisted the wire around the head band. The styrofoam ball I glued on the wire, so it would be more likely with me all day long. :)
Serpentiinin sijaan ajattelin kietoutua tänä vuonna näihin pieniin viireihin. Siitä tulee mukavaa värikästä vaihtelua. Viirit on leikattu värikkäästä paperista ja liimattu valkoiseen naruun. Tein kaksi viirinarua.
Instead of serpentine I thought of wrapping myself with these small banners this year. It will be a nice colorful variation. The banners are cut from colorful paper and glued on white yarn. I made two yarns with banners.
