This years Christmas craft picture is a large Christmas Tree and Snowman.
This giant craft picture is the first we've made since I mounted a dedicated craft board to the wall. The board is a piece of MDF that I got had the local B&Q to cut to size. The board is much better than mounting direct to the wall as I did before. As well as providing a defined area to shape the picture into it is far easier to staple to than straight into wall and doesn't leave holes in the plasterboard when the picture is removed.
Most of the things in the picture I've already explained in earlier posts about my giant craft pictures with the children.
Download the following Libre Office Draw file:
Open your photo using GIMP (or another photo editor) and create a circle around the photo using the Elipse select tool. Using the shift key will create a circle rather than an oval.
Use crop image to selection and save as a .png file. You may also want to turn some feather on to give it a smooth edge.
Insert the file into Libre Office.
Shrink to the correct file to fit inside the bauble.
In this case I stapled these direct to the wall, but you could instead create baubles for a Christmas tree by gluing two baubles together back to back.
