Fun with Jane: Bright gift for a new arrival

By Jane Aubrey


Our lovely friends Jane and James have recently had a baby and we wanted to make her something to say "welcome to the world, baby girl" and celebrate her beautiful name, Rosie. This was the inspiration for our latest project.

What you'll need



  • canvas


  • pompoms


  • PVA

How to make it



  • Draw an outline of the letter or shape you want to make with the pencil.


  • Paint the inside of the shape with PVA and press the pompoms into the glue. We left ours to dry overnight.


  • Your pompom creation is ready to hang.

About Jane


Crafting ought to be my middle name. Happily (for me), I seem to have passed my craft-mad genes on to my children - Charlie, 7, and Ella, 5. We all love making things, so we do loads of crafting together. It's our happy place.

For me, nothing beats crafting for an easy, relaxing, calm and sociable means of entertaining my kids.
