I got this idea while working on a project for Grown In My Heart (where I contribute.) It will post next week.
It is easier than it looks. I recommend this project for Middle School Age children and younger children who can use delicate/gentle strokes when painting on the tissue.
The image can be changed to create a pumpkin face or even an abstract creation. Same technique can be used for a Thanksgiving Turkey or Christmas scene.
Embroidery Hoop / any size
Work on Wax Paper so it is easier to lift project off if it is a bit sticky.
Trace a circle larger than your inner embroidery hoop. I used a dinner plate.
Cut out circle. Apply glue to top of hoop and sides including inside of hoop.
Using foam brush tamp down tissue paper.
Meanwhile cut out your pieces. Any design or words would work well.
Mod Podge design on top of hoop.
Mod Podge underside paper to get translucent look and will make piece stronger when dry.
If working with younger children, I recommend Mod Podging front (let dry) and back before applying design. This will provide a stronger base for smaller children to work with. It is surprisingly strong once Mod Podged.
Optional: Add ribbon to outside edge.
Another variation:I made a miniature one by using the plastic circle that was the safety seal on my mayo jar. See below.
I think this one came out so cute!
Another great idea.It should be so much fun to make.I have to try this one as well.Thank you!ReplyDelete
I really like the spiderweb one! What a cool idea!ReplyDelete
Ohh, I love the spider web one too. My son is crazy for images of spiders, but I think he is an arachnophobic-in-the-making. Since finishing sewing the kid's halloween costumes, this holiday is far from my mind...I am in the throws of stocking creation and putting my holiday gift list together...gosh I am just worse than Hallmark! Great crafty idea and I am glad to see that your Mod-podge is out of the fridge. :)ReplyDelete
