Easy DIY: Scandi wall hanging

27 Apr 2017

This Scandi collage was made using linen and a Resene testpot in Resene Good As Gold. Isn’t it gorgeous? Fleur Thorpe shows us how.

You will need

  • Fabric (Fleur’s is left-over cotton curtain lining)
  • Scandi stencil or create your own stencil (stencils are available from selected craft shops or you can search online)
  • Testpot in Resene Good As Gold
  • Small craft paint brush
  • Sellotape
  • Short length of dowel
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine

Step 1: Cut fabric to a rough size and shape.

Step 2: Using loops of sellotape on the back of the stencil, position the stencil into the desired location.

Step 3: Using a small craft paint brush, fill the openings of the stencil with paint.

Step 4: Repeat until the desired size of the image is achieved. Take care to remove the stencil each time without smudging the fabric.

Step 5: Using scissors, trim the fabric to the desired size.

Step 6: Sew a hem over the top of the fabric with a sewing machine. Thread a piece of dowel through the hem and hang up with string.
