New Product Alert!! This cute little MDF tie is now available for your crafting needs! Oh the possibilities!
My mind was on Father’s Day when I stopped into The Wood Connection for crafts. I wanted to create a fun mantle to celebrate our main man, Dad.
For this banner craft I grabbed some string, paint, wood glue, plaid paper, a sanding block, tie cut out, and half circle bunting cut out. This project was easy to finish in one afternoon. My three year old even helped me a little with the painting.
I painted the half circles “Quaker Grey” and painted all the ties plain white. After they were dry I lightly sanded each piece and started to apply the paper to the ties. If you are nervous about gluing paper to MDF, like I was, ask the ladies in the front of the store for one of their instruction sheets. I was amazed at how simple it was to apply with their wood glue and instructions. I haven’t had such great luck doing this in the past, I was so happy with how it turned out!
Wood truck and house are also available at The Wood Connection. The rustic wood frames are from Hobby Lobby. AND! This darling print by Brianne Cartwright of Design Wright is available on my blog by clicking HERE.
