How to turn words into interior decor
Today we want to combine several different techniques of needlework and create a modern colorful picture for decorating the interior. In this project, techniques such as thread and nail patterns, embroidery, thermal transfer processing and brush painting are used. When drawing a picture from this project, various words are used in English, which encourage you to do needlework. In principle, when creating your project, you can use images of animals, buildings, words in Russian and other languages. The most important thing is that all this causes certain associations in your mind and leads to certain actions. So, let's get started.
Buttons and cork board
You will need:
- squares from the cork board (20 x 20 see);
- buttons (the heads can be painted with paint for greater effect);
- paint for wood (various shades);
1. Take the brush and paint the squares from the cork board. Allow time for the paint to dry.
2. Attach the stencil to the previously painted square and draw a pencil outline of the future word.
3. Remove the stencil and, according to the diagram, start to stick the buttons. By the way the head of the buttons can be painted with acrylic paint in any color, which will give more vivid colors to your picture.
4. Repeat the steps 1-3 and make several different options with buttons and a cork board.
You will need:
- canvas 20 x 20 cm;
- brushes (of various sizes);
- acrylic paint (different colors).
1. Take a large brush and paint the canvas in the required color. Allow time for the paint to dry.
2. Attach the stencil to the painted canvas and draw a small brush.
3. Repeat the steps of 1-2 and make several different choices.
4. Basically using different fonts and colors, you can easily create your picture exclusively in this way.
Threads and nails
You will need:
- wooden or plywood squares (approximately 20 x 20 see);
- a hammer;
- thread of different colors.
1. Take a wooden square and attach a stencil to it. Pencil outline the outline of the future word.
2. On the contour, drawn with a pencil on a wooden square, start driving in nails, approximately at the same distance from each other.
3. Choose as a starting point one of the studs and tie the thread to it with a double knot. Then follow the thread along the contour of the corresponding letter, making a loop around each stud. When the entire contour is passed, start filling it with color, making some sort of stitches or zigzags. Do not forget to make a loop around each stud.
4. When you stroke the entire letter, fix the thread on the last nail, tying it on a double knot. Trim off excess ends.
5. Go to the next letter or to the next nameplate to make a few.
You will need:
- 4 bar (18 x 2 x 2 see) or the base for the canvas (20 x 20 see);
- PVA glue;
- fabric for embroidery cross;
- thread for embroidery;
- Industrial stapler (or a hammer with small nails);
1. Take the bars and using glue PVA, glue them together so that a square with sides dimensions 20 x 20 cm is obtained. Additionally, fix the nails with the ends.
2. Pull the cross-stitch fabric onto the previously prepared base, bend the ends and fix them with a stapler or nails.
3. Place the stencil on the fabric and draw a circle around the contours of the future inscription.
4. Now take the needle with the thread of the mulina and, following the contours of the future inscription, start making stitches.
5. Optional. When you finish the inscription, for beauty and greater effect, you can glue the edges with colored tape.
Sticker on fabric
- base (can be made from 4-x bars, as described above);
- Thermal transfer paper;
- color printer;
- stationery knife;
- Industrial stapler (or a hammer with small carnations).
1. Select the design of the future inscription on the computer, insert the thermal paper in the printer and print out the required image.
2. Take the clerical knife and gently cut the outlines of the inscription.
3. Cut the image on the cloth and iron properly.
4. Take the base (or collect it from the bars, as described above) and stretch the fabric on it. The edges of the fabric are wrapped around the base and fixed using an industrial stapler or a hammer with nails.
5. Repeat the above steps and make a few different stickers.
Well, here you have finished the preparatory stage. Now you can think about how and where to hang all these delights. For fastening, you can use hooks, nails or even double-sided scotch (if you do not want to mutilate the wall). By the way, you can use the building level to make sure that your pictures are evenly hung.
