I love to bring the power of positive words to my craft for kids.
What about creating with your child a craft that will express or reflect her/his goals, aspirations or expectations to this year?
(affiliate links for your convenience):
First thing is to use the screwdriver to make the holes: one on the top of the slice and 6 or 7 randomly on the bottom. The size of the hole depends on the size of the slice you have. I used a 1/8 for 3.1 - 3.4 inch slice.
The quality of the wood and the brand of the acrylic paint will define the number of the layers painted. I only needed two but be aware that maybe you'll need more as the wood tends to absorb a lot of the paint.
Wait it to dry completely so you'll be able to draw the word your kid chose. The tip is to first write lightly with a pencil and then cover with a marker.
To insert the ribbons in the holes, use a toothpick to push them. Give a little knot on the back of the slices to hold the ribbons.
Use pompoms and feather to create your style!
If you are local, I'm offering this class for kids at Mint Studio on Jan, 11th!
