DIY Craft: Wooden Beads Keychains

We are loving the things that we can do with wooden beads. Here are a couple more keychains that we have made. Enjoy! =)
The beads are painted with acrylic paint. Pastel and metallic are a perfect couple!

If you are interested in organising a workshop to make these crafts with wooden beads and/or need the supplies, feel free to contact us at hello@wahsosimple.com.

Alternatively, you can purchase a DIY Craft Kit for Wooden Beads Keychains and do it yourself at home. =)

Craft Workshop: Upcycling Used Paper into Personalised Notebooks

We started the new month of March with a series of upcycling craft workshops at a primary school in Singapore. We had a fulfilling time crafting with our young friends, ranging from 9-11 year olds at our craft workshop sessions. The objective of the sessions was to teach our young friends through crafting to appreciate our forests. The grand forests accounts for 1/3 of land area of our planet, but is unfortunately disappearing at an astonishing rate, due to deforestation.


The students were asked to come to school with sheets of one sided used paper. There were lots of chatter and excitement as they marvelled with disbelief at how they could transform the used paper they had painstakingly collected from rummaging through their recycled bins at home, into personalised notebooks.

We showed and taught them how to make and bind their own book, and personalise it with attractive washi tape.


Our young friends were delighted with their handmade notebook. They also went home with a deeper appreciation of the forest, the source of where paper is made. They all learnt the startling fact that along with losing endangered animals, to deforestation, we are losing forest area  the size of Singapore every 2 days (source: worldwildlife.org).

Craft Workshop: Making a Mosaic Photo Frame With Seniors


Our February crafting workshops with our silver friends were literally picture perfect! WahSoSimple conducted several sessions making mosaic photo frames with seniors and their student volunteers. The volunteers took time after school to spend their afternoon crafting, having fun and most importantly, making our silver friends feel extra special.

Together, we sat down to personalise their photo frames. We assembled multi coloured mosaic tiles onto the frame and added a few embellishments to give it an extra pop of colour.



We also had tremendous fun with our mobile photo booth. We had fun props and our instant camera. The seniors had a whale of a time dressing up and strutting their poses. We captured so many megawatt smiles and heart melting shots. A senior couple, married for close to 60 years, chose to take their picture together, inspiring us with their devotion for each other.

We had a fabulous time crafting and went home feeling fantastic that we added colour to the lives of our senior friends.

Event: Upcycled Fun at Car Free Sunday


WahSoSimple joined in the fun at CarFreeSunday on 22 January 2017! It was a great way to spend our Sunday morning along Connaught Drive. We ran a crafting booth, sharing how easy it is to upcycle everyday items at home with the help of some washi tape. It was great fun making bookmarks at our booth with used envelopes and gorgeous washi tape. 



Next time, before you throw something away, why not pause and think if you can make something useful with the help of washi tape. 


Till our next blog post, craft something! =)
