Make: workshop items
A round up of small projects from Christmas 2012 that didn't get blogged about yet:
A - Monogrammed fleece blanket:
Take a plain fleece blanket, cut out plaid fabric letter and zig zag around edges.
B - Portable lego trays:
The full tutorial is here and I handpainted names onto each of these trays.
C - Construction wreath:
Our neighbors are doing a major renovation and addition onto their house right now so I made a wood construction wreath with scraps nailed together to decorate the exterior.
D - Giant wood tags:
The full tutorial is here.
E - Handpainted wood oval ornaments:
The complete tutorial is here, I made many more but forgot to take pictures :(
F - Kid size stool:
The plans to make this stool are from Ana White here and you can see a previous version I made here.
To add the striped letter paint the J white, mark stripes in pencil then paint with red.
G - Handpainted oval house number:
H - Fabric rosette tree topper:
Similar to the fabric rosette garland I made here.
Step 1: Cut 2 fabric strips 1/2 the diameter of rosette by about 30" long.
Apply double sided adhesive (heat-n-bond) to adhere both pieces of fabric together.
Step 2: Accordion fold the long fabric strip, more folds = better rosette.
Slide needle with thread through one end and tie to make rosette.
Step 3: Glue wired floral pick into one open end then glue other open end on top to cover pick.
Step 4: Place pick vertical against tree top and wrap wire around both to secure.
A special sign for a friend who's boat named 'Trident' was lost in a dock fire.
I made this sign using 8 - 1x3 pine boards, print out lettering to fit, trace letters with ballpoint pen to create indent then paint on and inside the indent:
And that concludes the round up of Christmas 2012 projects (that didn't get blogged about).
