Sorry, no link for a tutorial. I’m sure there are some online. My mom just told me what to do–basically: wooden frame, wire mesh. Modge podge torn paper, add hooks to bottom. Styrofoam wrapped in fabric glued in place. Handstamped name w/ acrylic paint. Badda bing badda boom: jewerly board.
I also made my sister some rockin’ lounge pants, but never did get a picture. Probably for the best. I kind of did a rush job on them, sans pattern, and had very little material + my old dying machine = my husband asking if they would actually fit a human. They did. I tried them on and though low rise, they did in fact fit my human self. They just looked really wonky laying flat. I’ve mentioned that I need to improve my pattern design skills, right? Yeah. Thankfully, they were more of a joke gift, in addition to the other gift I got for her.
I have some fun ideas for next year, especially for my kids. Hopefully next Christmas will be much more personal and much more handmade.
