DIY crafts on the theme of state symbols of Russia

Paper applique for Russia Day

On the twelfth of June, citizens of our country will celebrate the day of one of the most powerful powers in the world. This day has recently become considered a Russian holiday. In preparation for festive events, together with your children, you can make a bright applique with your own hands - a postcard. Such work will help to study or remember state symbols. One of the main symbols is the tricolor flag.

The craft can also be decorated with a white dove - a messenger of goodness and peace. We present to you a master class suitable for the theme of the holiday.

To create an application, prepare:

  • Thick cardboard of any color;
  • Scissors;
  • Crepe paper in red, blue and white colors;
  • Plain blue and white paper;
  • Glue.

Stages of making a three-dimensional postcard for Russia Day:

Thick cardboard will become the basis of the postcard application. You can take any color; the surface of the cardboard will in any case be hidden under the spools of corrugated paper. The soft paper itself will be needed to imitate the Russian flag. We have selected the appropriate shades. Additionally, we will decorate the craft with a paper dove and flowers to match the flag.

Cut out a rectangle from cardboard. Cut rolls of soft corrugated paper into small squares. You will need three separate portions of red, blue and white paper.

Roll many balls of soft paper to cover the surface of the cardboard. This technique is called clumping because the process involves creating many small lumps.

Generously coat the surface of the cardboard with thick glue and begin pressing the prepared lumps on top, collecting them by color. You need to form three stripes of red, blue and white. You can pre-apply pencil borders for more accurate work. Attach the balls tightly, pressing each subsequent one to the previous one.

Fill the entire surface of the canvas with balls. Now the famous banner is ready. The surface of the applique is rough, the craft looks like a three-dimensional postcard.

To add some extra festive elements, also make some paper flowers to match the overall composition. Cut the paper into squares. Fold each square several times and trim the top edge with a birdie. You will get a blank for a flower.

Glue white and blue flowers from two layers of paper. Glue the red center - a simple spool of corrugated paper - into the center.

Glue flowers at the bottom of the applique.

Cut out a dove figurine from white paper. Glue to the center of the applique.

The craft for Russia Day is ready. This could be an exhibit for a children's exhibition or a fragment of a wall newspaper.

If there is a need to make a product on the specified topic, then the most advantageous option is to model the main state symbols.

Flag layout

The craft can be designed as a layout for the Russian Flag Day. A group of children, for example, in a kindergarten, can be involved in making flag crafts.

For the layout you will need children's palms cut out of colored paper. Each child will feel their importance in life by looking at the end result.

To work you will need to prepare the following material:

  • 2 types of corrugated cardboard. One is A4 sheet size. The second one has side parameters of 6x12 cm. There should be two such sheets.
  • Paper in three colors: white, blue, red. Paper size A4.
  • Paint brush, red gouache.
  • PVA glue.
  • Pencil.

The base for the flag is made of corrugated cardboard. A rectangular shape with sides 25x35 cm is cut out. To attach the base, you need to make slits 3 cm deep.

From the corners below it is 5 cm apart towards the center. A photo of step-by-step instructions for making a Russian flag model will help you clearly understand the work process.

  • Eyes for crafts: how to make templates and a master class on making eyes from various materials (100 photos)
  • Craft angel - 105 photo ideas on how to make your own angel quickly and easily from scrap materials

Next you need to prepare stands for the flag. Prepared rectangles with sides 6x12 cm are cut so that one of the corners becomes semicircular. The slots for fastening are made identical to the slots in the base.

Two important elements are connected: the stand with the base. The part of the stand that is visible in front of the base is covered with red color on the front side.

Palms are cut out, 8 pieces of each color. Palms are glued to the base from top to bottom in rows. First the white palms are glued on. The parts are placed overlapping.

It is necessary to place your palms so that the base is not visible between them. It is recommended to apply the adhesive base to the wrist area. Your fingers should be free of glue.

The craft will be ready when three stripes imitating a flag are glued.

Both works can be exhibited at an exhibition of children's crafts dedicated to Russia Day and Flag Day. Some ideas in the design of two crafts can be used in a wall newspaper.

A rider on a horse is embroidery on satin with a straight stitch, it took 2 hours, I had to constantly turn the hand wheel on an electric sewing machine (very small work). Then the embroidery on the reverse side was smeared with glue; when it had dried, it was cut out and glued onto red satin. Rhinestones are glued along the edge.

We found two plastic bottles. The bottom one is made of sunflower oil, the top one is made of water. We cut them as needed and glued the necks together with hot glue. Two pieces of wire were wrapped in padding polyester and inserted into a cut bottle. The plastic from the bottles itself was wrapped with adhesive tape to make the fabric stick better. We made legs out of wire, wrapped them in yarn so that the yarn wouldn’t fly off, and smeared the wrapped surface with a little glue.

Kanzashki have been prepared. Anyone who does it knows how to do it; there is a manual for making various kanzashkas on the Internet. They started gluing it from the tail, then the legs, and brought it to the place of the wings. We got busy with the wings.

Wings. We found something from the packaging. We cut out the shape of the wings, covered them with kanzashki and glued them to the body of the eagle.

Of course, to do something you always need an idea or a picture, which is what we had before our eyes.

My student is a beauty. For this work she took 2nd place in the All-Russian competition “Knowledge of State Symbols”
