Why not bring your room to life by putting a face on your door?

You will need:
  • Cardboard box card
  • PVA glue
  • Paintbrush
  • Paint
  • Sticky tape
  • Pen
  • Scissors
  • Kitchen roll or loo roll
  • Sticky tack
Draw one big eye shape on the cardboard.

Eyes are a similar shape to lemons, but the drawing doesn't need to be too perfect at this stage.
Then draw a large nose, and cut out both shapes.
Trace around the eye to make another eye exactly the same.
You'll also need a big mouth!
Next you need to pad out the eye.

Use lots of loosely scrunched-up newspaper, moulded into a sort of rugby ball shape and stick it on using tape.
Use two thin tubes of newspaper rolled up to make upper and lower eyelids.
Do this with both eyes, and the nose.
For the mouth take two big sausages of newspaper to create a big pair of lips.
When all the features are padded out, you need to strengthen them and smooth them out a bit.

For this, mix up PVA glue and water in equal parts and paste it on with a paintbrush.
Cover the PVA glue with strips of kitchen roll.
Make sure you cover up the edges and fill in all the nooks and crannies.
When you've covered all the pieces in the same way, leave them to dry and harden.

Now they're ready to paint!
Pick paints that are as near to your door colour as you can find.
It's a good idea to put on a base colour first, then you can build up different shades.
Do all four facial features in the same way, and wait for them to dry.
Now they're ready to attach to your door.

Carefully put them on the door to create the illusion of a face looking out at you. You can play around with the positions to give the face more character.
You could also try giant faces the same as the wallpaper so it looks as though the walls have come to life...
...or even on the floor, with features painted to match your carpet.

Try it yourself!
