I actually made all of these projects in December but have just not gotten around to posting pictures of them yet.
I figured that I better get them up on my website.
I appreciate the feedback that you always give me when I post the projects that I have made.
This time I am asking for a different kind of feedback however…
I have had a few requests for painting instructions and patterns.
This is where I would really appreciate some feed back…
If I were to feature a project each month, would you be interested in receiving the pattern and painting instructions?
What would you be willing to pay to have them delivered to your mail box each month?
Would you prefer that they arrive in a digital format, or would you prefer to have them mailed to your physical address?
And would you like patterns for my murals and furniture pieces as well?
Thank you for taking the time to respond to these questions. It will help me know how to move forward in the future.
So, as promised….
Here are the projects that I made to give as gifts this year for Christmas 2015.
I made 5 of these door hangers to give to my friends this year.
I made them out of 3/4″ MDF. I cut them out, then hand painted the details on each one.
Next, I added glitter to the snowman’s face for that little extra sparkle that I love.
The final step was to glue on the flower and add some beads to the brim of his hat.
The blocks are a fun little neighbor gift that I made using 6″ x 2″ scraps of wood and scrap book paper.
I MODGE PODGED the paper to the blocks.
Then added a burlap ribbon and then I tied the spoon onto the burlap ribbon with a smaller contrasting ribbon.
The last thing I did was I glued on a clip that would hold the recipe card.
These were a big hit!
I made this one for a co-worker. Her son is on a mission and I wanted to make her something really special to commemorate this once in a lifetime event.
I made these to pass out around my neighborhood. They are just scraps of wood that I have in my shop and I painted them fun colors then painted on the letters and the face and added a snowflake and glitter to the snowman. I made the carrot nose out of foam core board.
These were a simple project that was a really big hit too.
I had so much fun making Christmas projects this year. It is always so much fun for me to find and then make the projects each year.
So Once again I want to thank you for taking the time to respond to my questions.
I want to continue to grow my business and the thought of creating patterns and instructions was not something I had ever considered but thanks to my readers, I am now investigating that possibility.
