Agatha Christie fans will get a kick out of this week's craft - detective art.
This one is easy once you get the supplies. Here's what you need:
- 5 inches x 7 inches newspaper canvas from Michaels.
- Elmers Glue
- A thin line Sharpie
- A pencil
- A ruler
- A damp paper towel
- Agatha Christie Fabric from Spoonflower. We're using the overage from a placemat project, so you might want to make both to get the most out of your fabric. You can alternatively use another fabric.
Unwrap the plastic from the canvas at Michaels. Carefully cut around the figure of one of the detectives like the photo below. Cut carefully. Keep cutting until you have cutouts of Miss Marple, Tommy & Tuppence (together) and Poirot. The hardest part is Poirot's cane, but don't worry if you cut it off.
Put your cut out on your canvas where you would like it to sit. Use the pencil to make a couple of marks to guide you.
Spread Elmers Glue all over the back of one of your cutouts. Be careful to get some near but not over the edges. Less is more here.
Put the cut out on the canvas. Gently press. Use the damp paper towel to push out bubbles and to wipe off any excess glue at the edges.
This is all you need for Tommy & Tuppence and for Miss Marple. Poirot requires one more step.
Take your ruler and your thin line sharpie and draw in the Poirot's cane. It goes parallel to Poirot and ends before his feet.
And you're done.
