When did you last dabble in something arty? Maybe not since high school? Or perhaps you’re already a total make-and-do addict? Either way, we’re up for a bit of extra crafting in our lives.
Not only is making stuff deeply therapeutic (there’s no time for anxiously over-thinking life when you’re nose down in a complicated cross stitch, right?) but you get something to show for your efforts too. Ta-da.
So get your scissors, glue and paint pot at the ready because we’re bringing you #femmecraft – our new monthly make series that celebrates our favourite topic, womanhood. Think period-inspired art projects, boob bakes, knitted nipples, and for the green-fingered among you, *actual* lady gardens.
Today, in we’re showing you how to make gynae-inspired garland.
What you need
Bunting shapes – save our template and print as many as you need
Coloured cord or ribbon
Drawing pins, blue tack or clear tape (optional)
How to make
- Grab your printed ovary templates, stick down onto card and smooth over to get rid of any bubbles. Carefully cut around each shape.
- Punch two holes into each shape at the top corners of the fallopian tubes.
- Cut a piece of cord or ribbon to your desired length and tie a small loop at one end.
- Thread the cord or ribbon through your shapes, starting by threading down through the first hole and back up through the second.
- Continue until you have strung all your shapes along the cord. Tie another loop and the end to finish.
- Now you’re ready to hang your bunting – you can loop on the edge of a mirror, mantelpiece or attach to the wall with a drawing pin, blue tack or tape.
