Paint Paris

Even if you haven't been to Paris, chances are you know that the city is filled with street artists painting their views of the city. You've probably seen them in movies or on TV, and while they seem too stereotypical to be accurate, there really are a lot of artists here. Paris, after all, is one of the capitals of the art world. And as the saying goes, "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!" If you want to get the feel of Paris from your own home, why not simply paint the city? Imagine you're one of those artists over by the River Seine painting the Eiffel Tower.

Miniature Notre Dame

What's another Paris icon you can have in your home? The Notre Dame! The gothic church has no comparison to anything anywhere else. With its famous structure and huge significance in French literature, the Notre Dame is perhaps France's most famous religious site. Even if it's no longer what it was from centuries ago because of the tragic fire! However, you can resurrect that same structure with a miniature version at home! You can buy a model kit from any hobby store or toy shop and build away. Or, if you're feeling craftier, you can make the church out of other materials, such s cardboard and popsicle sticks!

Makeshift Beret

Got some extra black felt fabric or some wool lying around? You can use them for another arts & crafts project that will make you want to go to Paris even more! With your black material, cut up a big oval that's big enough for your head. Then cut up a similar oval but leave a big hole in the middle this time. Using a sewing machine or your own thread and needle, sew the outer lines of both ovals together. For the inner hole, sew in a thin elastic band that's just the right size for the hole. Now, put it inside out, and voila! You have a French beret!
