Have you noticed that most vintage street maps are published in festive colorings. That is the roads are frequently printed in red and rural regions in inexperienced all on a white heritage. This makes them perfect for Christmas crafting inside the past I even have made some splendid upcycled avenue map decorations for my domestic (see right here). This time I decided to apply the maps to make a completely unique and customized map decoration for the tree.
I used vintage out of date street maps and a few cotton reels for this Christmas craft. Old road maps can frequently be picked up without a doubt cost effectively at thrift stores but regularly I get mine from aged spouse and children who no longer have want for them. That is due to the fact regularly they are obsolete or they now simplest use sat navs.
To hold with the sewing topic I also raided my stitching materials for buttons. It’s pleasant to apply buttons within the festive shades of green and crimson.
First, measure the center circumference and height of the cotton reels.
Next, cut a strip of map to match the center piece. To make the ornaments more unique and personalized, pick out a place of the street map that has some that means to you.
GAMBAR4 Glue the map around the center middle of the cotton reel.
Next, get a few buttons and tread them onto some rings twine. You can use thread however I prefer earrings twine as it’s miles stronger and less complicated to thread.
Next, thread the give up of the wire via the middle of the cotton reel.
Then, upload a few greater buttons and a few pink cord to cling it from to finish.
I loved making these map thread embellishes I ended up making a few more as gifts. Using maps of the recipients favourite places.
Last yr I made some scroll thread adorns (see right here) with my preferred Christmas music lyrics which proved to be very popular Christmas presents.
I also brought a craft bell to the ornaments to add to their festivity. Check out the blog link on the give up for extra information.
