Making Tiny Toys in Wood : Ornaments & Collectible Heirloom Accents (Paperback) (Howard Clements)
About this item
Create charming holiday decorations that double as small toys with this easy-to-follow guidebook. Full-size patterns and step-by-step instructions are provided for 15 working wooden toy ornaments. From tugboats and tractors to windmills and wagons, these nostalgic moving toys make great Christmas ornaments as well as keepsake gifts for family and friends. And these simple projects don't take a lot of time, wood, or tools to make. They’re a great way to reuse and repurpose scrap wood, and require only minimal painting. All you need is a scroll saw, a drill, and some glue to create memorable family heirlooms. You can create them assembly-line style and fill a tree—or make a lot of gifts—with just an afternoon’s work. Better yet, get a youngster or two involved in the cutting, painting, and assembling.
