Very “Beary” Birthday

Hi there,

It is challenge time at Divas by Design and today “Anything Goes”… Show us what you are capable of and where your creativity takes you…

Our sponsor Bunny Zoe’s Crafts has a very attractive price for grabs for one lucky crafter!

My inspiration for you today is a Birthday Bear. I made him for my little neighbour more precisely his Second Birthday and Christening. It is rather big creation; the bear measures approximately 65x45cm and holds a big gift box 35cm diameter.
I had to hand sketch the body of the bear and used my silhouette for the rest of the parts of the body: head, paws and other details. I painted him using acrylic paints. I made him little vest and added some buttons and attached him to the box so it looks as if he holds it. The box is papier-mâché. I bought it in my local art shop. I also painted and decorated it with acrylic paints and designer paper so it resembles birthday cake.


It was fun project to do and it required a lot of work but well worth the effort. My heart skipped a bit when I saw happiness on the face of the birthday boy when he got his surprise.

Check out our blog for more inspiration from my colleagues. I can’t wait to see your creations. That is all from me for now happy crafting and see you soon. 🙂
