Make a reversible vacation ornament that works for fall and Christmas. One aspect has pumpkins and the opposite aspect has Christmas ornaments.
Should you’ve been following The Craft Patch for some time, that we actually love reversible crafts round right here. These are the reversible crafts that I’ve made over time:
As a result of these tasks have been so in style, I’m all the time looking out for brand spanking new reversible craft concepts. Just a few weeks in the past I noticed a clean wood ornaments signal at Interest Foyer and grabbed it instantly as a result of I knew it might be made right into a two-sided craft. And it turned out so cute! I’m excited to share the tutorial with you as we speak. Let’s go!
To make this reversible craft, you will want:
- Clean Wooden Ornaments Signal (see word under)
- Craft Paint in Fall and Christmas Colours
- Assorted Paint Brushes
- Paint Pens, Non-compulsory
- Sizzling Glue Gun + Glue Sticks
- Fall Floral Picks
- Velcro Tabs
- Thick Craft Foam
Observe: I bought the wooden clean from Interest Foyer within the Christmas crafts part. I regarded for it on-line however I’m wondering in the event that they don’t promote it on-line as a result of it’s giant? It measures 46 inches tall and 11.6 inches extensive. Right here’s a closeup of the tag in case that helps you monitor it down:
Christmas objects are already on sale for half off, so the wooden signal was solely $8.50! I really feel like that’s an incredible worth for such a big ornament.
Step 1: Take away the twine used for hanging. It’s hooked up with staples, so needle nosed pliers work very well. Then calmly sand each floor, particularly the perimeters. This removes any tough spots or jagged edges and can make your completed craft look higher.
Step 2: Paint the ornaments. Begin with the background colours, then add particulars. I like to make use of paint pens for smaller particulars just like the crazy design on the inexperienced decoration.
Should you’re undecided about drawing the designs on by hand, you might additionally reduce out vinyl designs with a Silhouette or Cricut machine and add the small print that manner. That’s how I added the snowflakes to mine. They’re white vinyl!
I added glitter to the purple decoration and admittedly, it’s not my favourite. I actually wished to get this concept up on the location ASAP so you might snag one among these indicators earlier than they promote out, so I redid it later for the ultimate pictures on my porch.
Step 3: Paint the pumpkins. Begin with the bottom colours, however solely add paint in a round pumpkin form. See how I left some areas of wooden clean?
Then to get the pumpkin strains, use coordinating paint colours and form of dry brush the strains on and easy them out till they appear blended. This step actually made them appear to be pumpkins and gave them a ton of dimension.
Use a brown paint coloration so as to add stems.
At this level, I used to be beginning to query if this mission would end up cute. I wasn’t very proud of how the stems turned out and that high pumpkin seems to be like an onion. However belief the method, all of it works out in the long run.
Step 4: I wished little bunches of fall leaves in between every pumpkin, however I knew if I hooked up them on to the wooden, you’d be capable to see them from the Christmas aspect and that wouldn’t be a very good look.
So as a substitute, I reduce small items of craft foam, scorching glued the florals to the craft foam, then hooked up the froth to the wooden with Velcro dots. Now the floral bunches are removeable! The place there’s a will, there’s a manner, child.
The autumn florals make all of the distinction, don’t you suppose? Now I actually love how the pumpkin aspect seems to be.
So there you will have it! A two-for-one craft you should use from September by December. Woot woot! That’s fairly superior.
Like this mission? Pin it so that you don’t neglect it!
