Kid-Made Ornament: I Am Blop Inspired

We’re back! You may have noticed that we’ve been kind of quiet around here. It’s kind of a long, uninteresting story that I won’t bore you with, but the important thing to note is that we are back!

Today, we are going to jump right in with a book-inspired, hands-on project. I’ve recently discovered the world of Hervé Tullet with my three-year-old. They are such fun books. I first heard about the author when Lisa reviewed Press Here here at The Library Adventure. I encourage you to check his work out if you haven’t.

I have joined with Melissa of Mama Miss and many other kid bloggers to bring you 10 Days of Kid-Made Christmas Ornaments. All of the ornaments, over 70 this year, are inspired by a book. Be sure to check out the entire collection.

Kid-Made Ornament: I Am Blop Inspired

This is a fun ornament, but it does involve a hot glue gun. Here are the other supplies needed:

  • parchment or wax paper
  • various pretties – pearler beads, buttons, pony beads, sequins, etc.
  • string

You will also want to have the I Am Blop book on hand, but I think you already know that seeing as you can’t read it if you don’t have it.

1. Lay the parchment paper on top of the book.

2. Outline the blop shape with the glue gun. Place a pony bead in the top and attach it to your outline with hot glue. This is where you will hang your blop ornament with a string.

3. Fill in your blop shapes with your various pretties.

4. When you have filled your blops, cover it with hot glue. A full-size glue gun will make this a much easier process than the mini we used. Be sure to not fill in your pony bead that will hang your ornament.

5. Let your blop ornaments cool and then string your ornament up with the string.
