Materials List

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Sheets: (3) 1”x12”x12”
  • (1 yd) Blue Velvet Fabric
  • Silver/White Metallic Yarn
  • 1” Sequin Pins
  • Low-Temp Glue Gun
  • Scissors
  • Serrated Knife
  • Black Marker
  • Ruler

Project Instructions

  1. Measure 3-½” in from each corner of the foam sheets and make a mark. Draw a line across each corner at the marks. Use the serrated knife to cut the corners off evenly

  2. Cut three 16” squares of velvet fabric. Lay the fabric face side down and lay the foam in the center. Pull the edges of the fabric up over the foam and glue in place at the back. Fold the corners neatly for a clean look. For a uniform look be sure that the nap of the velvet runs the same direction across all three panels

  3. Begin pushing the pins into the foam as indicated on the templates. Use a ruler as a guide to keep the pins running straight and evenly spaced.

  4. Tie the end of the yarn to a center pin. Wrap the yarn around each pin from one to the next up the row of pins. Follow the template as indicated to create the pattern. When you reach the end pin, turn back and follow the pins back down the row. Wrap the yarn around the center pin at the next row and wrap the yarn around the pins to the end and back. Repeat to string all three panels.

This is a pretty and very unique looking project and would be a great way to teach directions to older kids! Sparkle it up by adding glitter to metalic string! Lovely to give as a gift, and if you are very arty you could even create your own snowflake template designs! You could also change up the shape of the base background for so,e added variety! Very creative project idea!
