Chanukah Foamie DoorhangersSunday, December 04, 2005
I'm new to foamies. I've seen some really neat 3-D things like cute house models and things like that, but it's not really my favorite thing to make. Anyway, the last time I was at A.C. Moore, they had Chanukah foamie shapes - at the front of the store was a whole foamie section, with holiday cutouts - Chanukah shapes, Christmas shapes, animal, sports, you name it. I bought two door hangers and foamie glue and decided to make a couple of things and see how they turned out:
Here's my setup for two foamie doorhangers:
Hot glue gun, foamie craft glue, foamie stickers, foamie cutout shapes (no adhesive on them), and doorhangers
My mother-in-law *loves* snowmen, so I thought I would make her a little doorhanger with the snowman shape. I took the little tallis foamie sticker, cut it out, then affixed each half to each of the snowman's shoulders. I just placed three of the star stickers on to be his little buttons. Here's the pic:
For the other doorhanger, I took some of the shapes that didn't already have adhesive on them, and glued them to the doorhanger. I found that I liked using the hot glue better than the special craft foamie glue. Here's the first side of it I did:
...then I decorated the other side with some of the other adhesive foamie cutouts. I like this side better (this took no talent at all - you just stick those cutouts onto the doorhanger the way you think will look best and you're done!):
I think there's just *one more* thing I'm going to make with foamies - a doorhanger for my new neice (who will be here in January) with her name on it...with cute foamie flowers...hmmm......
