Dollar Tree DIY | Boat Anchor | Rustic Decor | SUMMER CRAFTS WEEK 3/5 -English CC


For our project we will be using these wood stems from Dollar Tree. They sell them in two sizes. Some thinner and others thicker. I will be using the two sizes of wood stems because in my Dollar Tree there were enough of both. Need 3 pack of wood stems approximately If you got them all the same size, I recommend that you do it because it is easier to form this boat anchor Since I had two sizes of wood stems, I had to play a little bit with them so they would be well placed Once it is finished to make the center of my anchor, I began to form the horizontal line that the boat anchor has Then I will be forming the part where a rope is supposed to be tied to the anchor I’m going to try to create a circle with a hole in the middle so I can tie my rope later Finally, in the bottom part of my anchor I will form as if it were a smile at the beginning and then move the wood stems to get the shape I want. At the ends I have to form two triangles on each side We are working with pieces of wood that are round, that is why we must go adapting them and changing them until it looks as good as possible to an anchor and we are satisfied with how it lookshave First locate where you wanted each wood stems and then paste them. I did it this way and it’s much easier since you make sure the shape of your boat anchor looks good Use hot glue to stick all wood stems. I never disarmed the boat anchor, I just stuck stems by stems to make sure that it was the same way I had done You must place the hot glue right where each wood stem is connected to each other to avoid that a sticky mess is noticed and that they are going to take off Once all the wood stems are stuck I can turn my boat anchor. To avoid that the wood stems are going to take off, I will stick popsicle stick on the back I use popsicle sticks of various sizes depending on the area where I am placing them. While you are hitting popsicle sticks, your boat anchor will be stronger. It is a piece that I like very much and I wanted it to last me for a long time, so I hit it enough As you can see, this way is much stronger and will not move or take off anything Now I am going to use this fine rope, because I did not have the Dollar Tree nautical rope. I’m going to use three long pieces of ropes You must tie them at one end to have a knot and then start making a braid Once you finish making the braid, it’s time to paint it I will use my Waverly chalk paint in this shade of blue to give just a little color and highlight the boat anchor Once the rope has dried. It’s time to tie it to the boat anchor. I use hot glue too to keep it from moving where I want it from Now you must decide how and where you want the rest of your rope to be located in the boat anchor You can also paste it with hot glue so you do not leave to move I had half that the wood stems were going to deteriorate at some point, so I used spray clear crystal clear in all my boat anchor This is how the wood would look once we found the spray applied. The wood stems look darker and brighter, and the quality of the wood is better than before I hope you like today’s project as much as I do Remember that I have Instagram and Facebook, you can follow me through both social media. I leave you on the screen
