REMEMBRANCE DAY CRAFTS
To commemorate the armistice agreement which ended World War 1, poppies are widely used in Remembrance Day crafts
Not just to mark the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, but as a token thank you gesture to all the patriotic servicemen today and to the veterans who have served their countries in the past, Remembrance Day crafts have become popular worldwide
Members of our groups are no exception, so have certainly been creative with their Remembrance Day crafts when it comes to showing their respect
A variety of materials from plastic bottles to paper, fabric, wood, wool, glass and metal have been used and we’ve been amazed at some of the Remembrance Day crafts that we’ve seen so far!
As the London march past the Cenotaph, and also no doubt other commemorative activities, have been cancelled this year our members have gone all out to show that they’ve not forgotten
And much more….
Gardeners have gone all out to mark this Remembrance Day too
Several group members also included purple poppies in their Remembrance Day crafts. We mustn’t forget the animals who have served too
Kirsty Gardner came up with an amazing, but laborious, idea. This one is probably our favourite…
“This year instead of laying a wreath on remembrance Sunday I will be laying a painted pebble on each grave in the naval cemetery on the isle of Portland. I need 400. I am no artist by any means and this is my first time in many years drawing. I don’t think I am doing too badly”
…we just had to include it on our page https://www.facebook.com/onabudgetofficial/videos/792368418281540
Because we shouldn’t forget that some of our veterans need support all year round, buying a poppy or making a donation can make a huge difference to their lives https://bit.ly/386Ezbc
There’s far too many Remembrance Day crafts to show you here. We hope these fantastic examples have given you incentive for next year!
In conclusion, for more inspiration have a look on our groups. Similarly, we’d love to see your projects too
