While I was searching for the words to the song ‘O Christmas Tree’ I came upon an intriguing post that gave all the instructions for an O Christmas Tree wall hanging that was just a little bit different than simply printing out an image and inserting it into a frame.
It’s adorable, simple and inexpensive to make. Check out Ann’s Entitled Life here for the full instructions. You will need cardstock, a printer, cardboard, green yarn and a picture frame.
I wasn’t sure about the color of my frame until I put the print in it. I really like the pale frame as it doesn’t distract from the green yarn tree.
I am thinking I might need to make two and give one away at Christmas.
O Christmas Tree wall hanging, its A Wandafulthing!
March Craft Challenge – make a craft that includes yarn.
Just in case you are new and this is the first you are hearing about this, here’s the scoop. On the Third Monday of every month, Amelia, (she blogs over at You Can Always Start Now) and I do a project or post based on one chosen DIY craft or theme, then we share our results and hopefully have inspired you to join our challenge.
In January the theme was canvas, February we used puzzle pieces. (The links to our challenge results can be found at the end of this post.)
Lately I’ve been trying a variety of ways to make different size yarn pom-poms. I’ve tried making them on a fork(pretty small), wrapping around my fingers(medium) and using the C cardboard method (these can be as big as you want). I decided to incorporate my craft challenge with an Easter craft.
Amelia from You Can Always Start Now was very creative and used only yarn for her craft. She made a headband and a necklace using only her fingers – yes finger knitting. Go check out her blog.
