Gift #11 - Hand Crafted Dreidel

25 Days of Gifts

#11 - Hand Crafted Dreidel

I believe I shared this with you several months ago but I decided to share it again...my hand crafted Dreidel.

I used a pattern that I found on-line...there are several so just look until you find a design you like. I printed it out twice once onto a heavy cardstock, the second onto glossy cardstock. I painted the first template with silver Distress Crackle Paint and set it aside to dry. I cut out the image details from the glossy template and applied alcohol inks. I then went back over the images with a Sharpie so they would really pop off the AI's.

Once the crackle paint was dry I cut out the Dreidel and assembled it. I used Aleene's Fast Tack Tacky Glue to hold all the parts together quickly...since it's 3D you'll want a really quick set glue. Next I attached the images and trim.

Finally I added a good squeeze of E-6000 down the hole for the handle and pushed in my painted dowel. Added a bit of ribbon and it's ready to be used or given away.

It was a fun project and I love how it turned out...
