Paper doily peacock craft for kids

Todays make is only a little one but we still love this paper doily peacock craft. He’s so sweet and simple to make which made it easy to squeeze in some crafting on this busy day! My little guy is back to school tomorrow so today has been a busy day washing and labelling clothes and generally getting prepared. I must say I’m quite nervous about school. We both have mixed emotions about it and I’m going to miss him so much during the days but I know he is desperate to see his friends again. It also means that the dynamic of the blog is going to change too as we won’t have so much time crafting together but don’t worry we’ll still find a way to share plenty of fun crafts for you to make with your little ones!

Heres what we used:

  • Paper doily
  • Purple, blue and green paints
  • Painting sponge
  • Blue, white and yellow paper
  • Eye stickers
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to make our paper doily peacock craft

First take your paper doily and fold the bottom outer lace edge up to the top inner lace edge.

Use a sponge to lightly dab peacock colours all over the paper doily. Remember to be very gentle and dab rather than brush as paper doilies rip very easily. Once covered, put the doily aside to dry.

Once dry optionally mount the doily feathers onto a piece of white paper. Then cut out a blue oval for the body and a circle for the head and glue them centrally onto the doily.
