Evergreen Wall Art

By: Kathleen George for STYROFOAM Brand Foam

No time to quilt?  Make this evergreen wall hanging in a fraction of the time, and you'll have something beautiful to hang at Christmastime or any time.

Evergreen Wall Art

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
  • Photocopier
  • Plaid cotton fabrics, 45" wide, 1/3 yd. each
    • Red/black
    • Red/green
    • Green
  • Solid fabric scraps
    • Brown cotton
    • White velour
  • Red satin ribbon, 1/8" x 1/2 yd.
  • Thin gold braided cord, 3/8 yd.
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Small putty knife
  • Straight pins
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • Pencil
  • Fine-line black permanent marker

 

Instructions:

  1. Enlarge pattern 200% and make duplicate copy. Place full-size pattern on foam sheet. Use ruler and sharp pencil to draw over pattern lines, making slight depressions in foam.
     
  2. Cut apart duplicate pattern into separate patterns for trees, trunks, snow background, and borders.
     
  3. Using photo as color and placement guide, cut out fabric pieces, adding 1/4" all around for tucking. For added visual interest, cut some tree pieces on an angle. For border pieces, cut strips 3-1/4" wide so they will wrap to back.
     
  4. Beginning at center and working out, attach fabric to foam as follows: center one fabric piece on top of corresponding foam area; position putty knife on scored pattern line; push 1/4"-wide "seam allowance" into foam. Note: For clean edge, hold knife at 90° angle to foam.
     
  5. If excess fabric sticks out above foam, and does not disappear when second fabric piece is pushed in along same line, trim excess fabric. Repeat to cover entire area inside borders.
     
  6. To cover borders, push in 1/4" of border fabric along inside edge; wrap excess to back. Glue and pin fabric at back of foam so it is smooth. Fold and pin corner pieces flat at back, like making hospital corners on a bed.
     
  7. For back, cut 9" x 17-3/4" rectangle from fabric of choice; glue to back of wall hanging.
     
  8. Glue and pin ends of red ribbon to top back corners for hanger.
     
  9. Cut gold cord into three equal lengths. Tie each length into small bow; glue to treetops.
