Circus Runaway DIY Trapeze
Following our trip to Gifford Circus recently , Abbi has decided she wanted to learn to be an acrobat and trapeze artist, so she can runaway and join the circus!
So to keep our circus runaway at home, a trapeze has been rigged up in the garden by Abbi and Mr PSGC. By the way, I draw the line at sewing sequins on the school uniform!
Not really a trapeze – more a wooden bar (branch) hanging from the tree. Mr PaintSewGlueChew drilled a couple of holes – one in each end of the stick, around 1n inch and a half from the ends. Thread a rope through the holes to make a triangle.
A broom handle would work equally well. (probably better!)
The trapeze obsession came from a recent trip to the circus. I am more than just a little bit obsessed with Circus things just now, which has inspired me to make this little circus art print:
