This was my contribution for Easter crafting in the latest issue of Kyrkpressen.
1. You'll need:
- baking tray paper
- fabric scraps
- doublesided adhesive
- news paper
- coloured paper (ads, fashion magazines, children's drawings)
- sewing machine (or needle and thread)
- steel wire
3. & 4. Trace the hen or feather onto paper or fabric. It isn't important that you trace it perfectly. Cut along the traced lined. Fold the paper or the fabric a couple of times to get several figures at a time.
5. If you are making fabric decorations you firstly take two scraps of fabric and place them wrong side towards wrong side with the adhesive in the middle. Iron the fabric to make the adhesive stick.
6. If you are making paper decorations you cut the figures in folded paper, so that for instance the tail feathers of the hen is place by the folded edge. When the figures are attached at one spot it is easier to glue them together right.
Now you hand the decoration onto twigs or in your window.
Here are the decorations I made:
