Hello, and welcome to Adult Craft Skills Unless you’ve been locked in a bunker, crying into a copy of The Famous Five and wishing everything would just stop for the last 18 months like I have, you’ve probably noticed Brexit But how do we fix Brexit in the home, using craft skills? Now, Brexit’s a hot potato so when we’re trying to fix it we do need to be careful, which is why I’m wearing gloves, and like a hot
potato, one of the first things you’re going to realise is the surface level appearance of Brexit is not very well attached To really fix it, we’re going to have to remove this outer layer of guff and spin, and deal with the insides So I’m just going to take this off and put it over here One of the challenges you’ll face when you remove the skin of the Brexit Potato is that you’ll immediately realise that the innards are made of horseshit but at least we now have a stable base to work with So, for the next stage, you’re going to need some glitter, some plastic jewels which could have been made from sustainable eucalyptus
resin, but after Brexit will probably now come from a deprived child labour sweatshop
in a country which will soon be under water, some wiggly eyes, some cocktail sticks, and some sticky tape First of all we’re going to roll the shit potato in glitter Make sure you cover it not only to mask the actual horseshit, but also the repulsive stench Once you’ve got it nicely covered you can just pop some tear-stained jewels onto the outside however you like, really, just use your inner creative guidance So once you’ve done that, just use the double sided tape to mount the wiggly eyes onto the cocktail sticks and stick them into the shit-ball wherever you feel like We’re going for a kind of sparkly intimidation look, a kind of ‘everything’s sweet and rosy’ combined with ‘ARE YOU LOOKING AT ME, PAL?’ combo There’s no hard and fast rules, just ride that creative knife edge as well as you can be bothered to, given how much effort anyone else is putting into this mess aaaand, there! I think that’s looking about as successful as it’s ever going to, so I’m going to stop there and call that a day, but do see how you get on, remember to post pictures of your experiments online, use the hashtag #mycreativebrexitshitball and I look forward to seeing how you get on Until next time, happy crafting!
