Primary Technique: Wood Crafts

Occasion/Theme: Winter

Easy

Materials:

  • 5/8″ cedar or pine wood
  • 1/8” plywood for the star
  • Band saw or jigsaw
  • Template for wood pieces to cut out
  • Sand paper
  • Acrylic craft paint (use whatever color you prefer)
  • Paint brushes (mini roller and fine brushes)
  • Matte finish varnish

Instructions:

  1. Using the template, cut out shapes and then trace all the shapes (excluding the star) onto your cedar/pine and then cut out your pieces of wood using the saw.  Do the same with the star using the 1/8″ plywood.
     
  2. Sand all the edges of your wood until they are pretty smooth.
     
  3. Starting with the people pieces, paint on the faces and shawls – just keep it a simple design (feel free to draw a little outline with a pencil on the wood first if that helps).
     
  4. Paint the star gold.
     
  5. Paint the edges of the trees, arch and people using the mini roller.
     
  6. When the paint has dried, glue the star onto the arch.

Notes:

  • Cover and seal everything with a coat of matte finish varnish
