Hardy Is Ready!

I have finally done it; the recycling project on our resident creature that I started working on with my kids is finally complete. You can see its original view here. The animal is now named Hardy by my son, though its new avatar is yet to find its place around the house.

While we started with the revamping more than 2 months back, the completion kept getting delayed due to various reasons. And the festive season only made me busier, pushing the poor guy to a corner. So I am now feeling relieved and happy, and my guilt at not tackling Hardy with a vengeance all these weeks is now gone. I can now start work on other experimental projects I have lined up in my head.

Anyway, here’s a picture of Hardy from the front.

And here’s a close-up of its rear end.


Do let me know how you like Hardy’s new look. And for the record, the blue and green finger-painting on its body was done by my 3 year old daughter and 5 year old son. :)


I also thought I’d give you a peek into similar projects I did in the past, and which have been hanging around the house. Here’s a mask I still love looking at.

And the sun that shines on one of our walls.

Hope to be back soon with more updates on my creative projects.

I liked your Hardy. How did you make them, could u share please? U are lucky to have kids who are interested in making them and you need lot of patience to craft with them.

Thanks for liking Hardy. His frame was made by tying together twigs I collected from the park. Then we covered him in paper, and gave him a coat of paint.
You can try doing the same with your kids. Makes for a good vacation project.
