I have this space above my
windows in the living room.
I think I need some decoration for that space.
Oh I have these old, stained planks.
Which are really nice, but something is missing though.
So I was thinking...
And than it hits me;)
Why not make a paddle for that space, I have my octopus painting,
and the jelly fish painting in there, some driftwood tables.
So why not a paddle?
No I didn`t carve it from wood.
I made it from this;)
Yes, just simple paper rolls! (and some cardboard)
You know the ones wrapped in toilet or kitchen towel paper.
So you have to remove the whole paper first, to get to them.
Do this on its purpose or let your kids or pets help you;)
Okay, what have I used:
1. Paper rolls (small and big ones)
2. Scissors and duckt tape
3. some glue
4. some electrical tape in black
5. a pretty wallpaper and some nails
And here is how I did it.
At first, lay down your rolls and cardboard to shape the paddle.
Than add the duct tape to connect the parts.
I put some kitchen paper towel between the two cardboard
parts to make the paddle more dimensional.
Than you have to take out your wallpaper and just glue it to the cardboard paddle.
You can paint it as well.
I wanted it to be easy and fast, so I picked the wallpaper!;)
I only used the last stripe, the darker one.
Than let it dry.
After it was completely dried I used some
black electrical tape and wrapped the handle at the end and
right in front of the paddle.
And that`s how it looks on my wall;)
So what you think?
