Wooden portrait of a teddy bear
We present a simple decoration for a child’s room made of wood and covers from the business calendar. The whole creates a harmonious combination of wood and imitation leather. A wooden picture can hang over a desk or a cot.
Portrait of a bear can also be used as a wooden toy. Paint the teddy bear with your favorite paint colors. You can add your own decorations and personalize your own picture with a teddy bear. It is a good exercise of imagination and creativity for the youngest.
Will be needed:
- hair saw (or modeling jigsaw)
- quick-drying adhesive
- vulcan glue
- various stain colors or acrylic paints
- printed picture (coloring book) with a teddy bear
- a piece of plywood the size of the picture (thickness 3mm)
- a slat slightly larger than the picture
- a cover from an old business calendar or a piece of artificial leather
- pencil mark
- optional – pyrography
STEP I – Drawing the pattern on the wood
Find the corresponding picture on the Internet, then print it. Presented teddy bear is printed on a sheet of A4 size. Use the pencil to transfer the teddy bear pattern to a piece of plywood. Note that only the edges that will serve as the cutting line are drawn. Save the paper image to step 4.
STEP II – Cutting out elements
Using a hair saw, carefully cut the drawn elements on the outer edges. Do not cut out the elements marked in the middle – they will be “painted”. After cutting, grind / smooth the elements with sandpaper.
STEP III – Color painting
Paint stain elements or acrylic paint according to your preferences. In the presented example, elements such as eyes that were not cut out were burned out using a pyrograph. Leave the painted elements to dry. If necessary, wipe them with sandpaper again.
STEP IV – Cutting the leather background
From the old business calendar cover cut the background. The template will be a paper picture with a teddy bear that you have kept in step 1. Place the template and cut according to the extreme outer edges of the black lines.
STEP V – Bonding a teddy bear portrait
Glue the cut elements to the background using a quick-drying adhesive. Glue the teddy bear to the previously prepared slat.
All the best,
