Welcome back to Waste Not Wednesday! For those who have been following along for a while, you’ll know Waste Not Wednesday as a linky party. But Leanna and I have decided to change things up a bit. Each Wednesday, we will be bringing you fun projects from us and some of our favourite bloggers. This week’s theme is all about Christmas In July using wood!
- Scrap Wood – 22 cm x 9cm
- Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint – Voodoo Gel Stain – Tobacco Road
- Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint – Gator Hide Applicator Sponge
- Grain Sack material
- Jute and Ribbon for embellishements
- Glue Gun
- Large Craft Stick
Step 1 – Fold your fabric in half from the top and place the craft stick onto the fabric to measure where to cut. I eye balled this step but you can measure it out if you want using a ruler and a fabric pen. Cut using your scissors.
Step 2 – Fold your fabric in half and cut keeping the fold line at the top.
Step 3 – Then from the bottom right hand corner cut diagonally to the top of the fabric on the left had side.
Step 4 – Place your fabric facing down and carefully glue gun down the sides of the tree about 10mm from the edge. Place the seconf part of the tree onto the fabric, this time with the pattern facing you. It’s best to work in sections rather then doing the whole lot in one becuase the glue drys too quickly. Be sure to leave a gap across the bottom of the tree so that you can pop the toy filler in.
Step 5 – Open up the base of your tree and using the craft stick fill with toy fill and seal off with your glue gun.
Step 6 – Glue the tree to the back of the wooden block and then embellish the base of your tree with ribbon and berries.
And you’re all done! Now it’s time to decorate and enjoy your new creation!
