I haven’t blogged anything really crafty on here for a while so I thought I would share this. My most recently completed project, a door hanger for Jeremiah’s room.
I made this using:
a house shaped photo frame
sticky back plastic
letters that I cross stitched on plastic Aida
I started this project making the letters. I found an alphabet in one of my pattern books or in a magazine. Then I copied it onto graph paper so I could work out the rainbow.
I think stitching all of the letters took me a total of three days. I also stitched his middle name (John) but when I came to put it all together I misplaced the J for John so at the moment I have left a space and know where I will stick those letters when I find them.
I then started on the boat, cutting the bottom shape from the ply wood and covering it and the photo frame in sticky back plastic. My original intention was to paint these pieces but I couldn’t get the paint to stick. i then found some lovely plastics so decided to use those instead.
I then threaded some ribbon round the top ready to hang on the door.
