Cool And Simple Puzzle Paintings With 3 Colors
So, I wasn’t absolutely activity to allotment today’s tutorial with you guys because I started it authoritative it aftermost minute to add some abundant bare artwork to our accommodation afore some accompany appear into boondocks this weekend. But afterwards I started I realized, I should apparently allotment it.
So actuality we are: addition DIY art allotment (yes, I’ve fabricated a few), but this one alone costs $9 to accomplish and took about an hour. Not bad for a activity I wasn’t activity to share. Click through for the tutorial.
I started with a rug balance from West Elm (one of my beloved things to ability with lately) that was on auction for $4.97. In case you didn’t already know, West Elm and some added retailers that backpack rugs as well, advertise the little sample swatches of rugs already they’re discontinued. And they’re about consistently $4.97 (at atomic the Wets Elm ones) – so arch into a bounded abundance and get you some!
Then, I cut bottomward a allotment of board dowel rod I already had (cost $3) and acclimated almost $1 account of braid for the rest. I additionally acclimated a artificial yarn aggravate and scissors but I’m not activity to calculation those items in the amount aback they’re appealing basal supplies. Cool?! Cool!
So now that you accept the account breakdown, here’s the official abstracts / accoutrement list…
Start by acid bottomward a dowel rod to the actual admeasurement (if needed). I abstinent the amplitude of my rug balance and afresh added 3 inches to that altitude (1.5 inches added on anniversary ancillary for the rod to stick out from the accomplished piece).
Next, blanket the top allocation of the rug balance about the dowel rod. Then, application a artificial yarn needle, attach the advanced of the rug to the aback accessory that is captivated about the dowel rod. I added 5 stitches advance out forth the top, appropriate beneath the dowel rod and bifold askance anniversary one to bind and secure.
Once the rod is secure, stitch / beautify a architecture on the blind allotment of the rug, afresh application the artificial yarn needle. I went with a simple triangle, but you could additionally stitch a message, monogram, etc, etc.
Then, add braid to the rod for blind (and some binding at the basal (if adapted – I aloof askance it assimilate the basal to ample it out and tie in the braid blush throughout) and you’re all set. Appealing easy, right?
I afraid the accomplished allotment from a copse bank angle (from CB2), but you could additionally aloof as calmly adhere it from a nail. No appropriate blind required.
This abstraction would additionally assignment aloof as calmly with a 2×3 or 3×5 rug instead of a balance if you appetite article larger. You’d do aggregate the aforementioned way, admitting you may appetite to chase for a dowel rod thicker in bore if you go aloft 2×3.
