Decoupage Minions Wood Guitar Music Box

I bought a DIY music box craft kit for my son to do in summer holiday.

The music box is a mini-guitar. That is so lovely!

The music is from the theme song of a Japanese cartoon called 'Castle in the sky'. My son loves it so much!

This music box is easy to make. The shapes are pre-cut. We just need to use glue to stick them together.

Originally, we wanted to draw something on the guitar. But it seems quite difficult to draw tidy lines with acrylic colors as the surface of the guitar is not flat.

This pair of earrings is one of my most satisfied wirework. I like the hearts made by twisted wires so much. I hope you like them too.

Our first pottery class

Besides the first mosaics class, we also had our first pottery class at the resort in the summer holiday.

It was our first time and was more difficult than I imagined.

It was difficult to make the shape that I wanted on the tuning table.

I wanted to make a pen-holder. But I could not control my fingers well.

Sometimes, I made it concave by accident. And sometimes, I made it bent irregularly carelessly.

So as my husband and my son, they found that quite difficult to make a good shape!

Finally, the teacher helped us to make the desired shapes. We only did the decorations on it, lol!

Our First Mosaics Projects

This summer holiday, we went to a resort.

There are some art classes in the resort, such as clay, shoe / tshirt / cap design, pottery, bottle drawing classes.

We attended a few of them. The class that I liked most is the mosaics class.

This was the first time my son and I did the mosaics projects. We felt so exciting!

In the class, we were given a wood photo frame as the foundation to adhere the tiles on.

There were so many pretty tiles for our choice. Some of them were complete and more of them were in pieces.

If we wanted to cut our shapes, we can use a cutting tool.
