Hello! Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here! Arts and crafts abound here as Christmas approaches. Here are some festive things we have been working on!
We have been crafty with all the resources at our disposal. It beats watching the television in mindlessness.
Sometimes, our idle time is not mindless, but mischievous. A twelve year veteran of life and I used our collective creative to make transform arts and crafts into darts and traps.
The darts were a lot of fun, and I am not too shabby in manufacturing them, but we had other concerns.
You see, lawn gnomes have been planning a hostile takover of Willow Manor Urban Garden for a long time so we relocate them as we find appropriate.
From locally available products, we devised a humane method of capture.
Sometimes, getting outside is the best place to go after being Covid cooped in the cramped confines of your cabin, and darkness was not to far away as the winter days are short.
Traps set and cramped as we were, the twelve year veteran of life and I formally decided to try our hand against the wild outdoor expanses and we had an excellent experience.
We struck out into the wild unknown and found our own Utah Monolith. It was slightly smaller, and we left it where it lay.
After finding a pace that I could keep up with, we jogged far afield and found turkey feathers and lots of tracks.
During our forest forays, sometimes we find some really neat things. For instance, this wire. I actually did not know what to do with it, but the 12 year veteran did.
The little man set out to make a gnome deterrent with the wire.
The warrior possessed a fully functional sword, bow staff , and q-tip projectiles.
Hopefully, with this fellow on patrol, we can turn the tide of the backyard conflict.

Very cool ideas!
Thank you! We try to stay busy!
I like your creative ideas there Benjamin! And they gave me some ideas to try also!😀😺
I am glad you liked them! Be nice to garden gnomes if you catch one!
Actually I never see them up here, maybe our long cold winters are too much for them.🤔😳
There are some great crafts shown in this post. I love the snowflakes, especially the Q Tip one.
Ha ha! Thank you! I think sometimes scarcity creates creativity!
Creative creativity is always awesome
Amazing crafts, well done you lot!
Thank you Cassa Bassa!
That’s really cool! We make lots of diy props for LARP, but unfortunately that’s not an activity for this year
I would like to learn a little about props. They would do well for photos!
You can check out my boyfriend’s shop if you google Zurbag Approved, he has some stuff there. Otherwise there are some of our photos on the LARP Slovenija page, but mostly on Facebook. There’s also lots of DIY foam prop tutorials on YouTube, from basic to super advanced. You can make a lot for cheap and it’s fun
Way cool! I checked it out, lots of cool things!
We’re cool like that 😎
I will have to do a post on the Etsy Store!
That’s nice of you!
Petra, You have opened a pandora.
It’s great, there is a cocktail of DIY, creativity and family sharing
It forges good memories, it is the best gift we can give our children, give them beautiful memories.
Thank you Paquerite! I want them to grow straight and tall like a tree!
Children are our little gardens full of mysteries, we have the honor and the duty to be their discreet gardeners
I wish you the best! Fighting gnomes is serious bizness.
You ain’t kidding!

Awwwwww, thank you nephew! I (we) always have an amazing time with the family. I am looking forward to the next gathering! Next time I will not be so hyped up on Jolly Ranchers or will I? 😂🤣😂😎
We will bring more to the next gathering!
The feathers that seem to be large birds of prey are cool.
I also want to pick it up.
They are turkey feathers. You can come along next time!🤠🔥
Was it a turkey? There is no custom to eat in Japan, but it looks delicious. I hope you will have the opportunity to join us. First of all, the coronavirus is over!
A turkey is like a very large chicken and they are quite tasty.
I would love to join you in Japan when I get the opportunity! The coronavirus is still here where I live.
Have a beautiful day!
I love making stuff myself. The q-tip snowflakes are genius!
Crafty beats the television every time! Thank you Jessica!
